You'll have to keep eating at Applebee's.
Food isn't racial in this country. I've been to My Mama's Sweet Potato Pie on Livingston back in the day before it shut down. Been to the C & S for breakfast, too. Needed an escort for that.

The late great stand up comedian Jay Hickman talked about growing up as the only white kid living in a black neighborhood. He said by the time he turned 5 yrs old, he'd already adopted the nickname "Sayfu" because that's what all the black kids would say whenever he walked by them.

Un-ringing such a bell is not simple. Passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 meant that people who had been taught that it was socially acceptable to use terms like the N-word in public suddenly found themselves struggling with restraint on their language. Unable to exorcise the term from their vocabulary fully, they took it into private quarters and used it among friends who had similar experiences and sentiments. It is grossly foolish, though, to dismiss Deen's stumble as a minor ineptitude with speech. In certain cultural circles in America, racism abides. And sometimes it simply forgets to close the door.

Apologists racing to Deen's side are equally awkward in their articulations of defense. Author Anne Rice fretted about our "lynch mob" culture crucifying Deen, seemingly oblivious to the racial freight hauled around when using such a phrase to defend a privileged, Southern white person. Less than 100 years ago a 17-year-old black farmhand named Jesse Washington was lynched on the courthouse lawn in Waco, Texas, chained to a tree and burned alive. Parts of his body were sold as souvenirs to a cheering crowd of 10,000. He had admitted to a murder many historians doubt he committed.

How hard is it to understand that any ethnic person whose race has a history of being so victimized in a nation that espouses equality is likely to have a justified sensitivity to the bumblings of Deen, who had also expressed an offhanded interest in a "plantation-style" wedding dinner where the waiters were black males?

Deen might have argued that her attitudes were forever altered when a black man robbed a bank where she worked in 1986 and held a gun to her head. But sympathy is a tough emotion to conjure when reading her 2012 interview with The New York Times where she speaks of slavery as a familial relationship, not an injustice, and says, "(F)or that reason we didn't see ourselves as prejudiced." She also used the same forum to suggest that the freeing of her grandfather's 30 slaves was the cause of his suicide

Pat and Gina Neeley are the real cooks behind fat Paula's success. You whites always take undue credit for someone else's hard work.

Dumbest publishing business decision ever...
Paula Deen's upcoming book nixed by publisher
Paula Deen's upcoming cookbook, currently the No. 1 seller on Amazon.com , has been dropped by its publisher.
In a brief statement Friday, Ballantine Books announced it had canceled publication of "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up." The book was scheduled for October
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-207_162-57591604/...
Deen and Amazon will hopefully sue Ballantine into bankruptcy.
Yanno, I'm not a Paula Deen fan. But this bothers me because the next time someone with money has to testify, will they tell the truth in fear of companies overreacting? I'm thinking not so much, and that is what I find the most sad.

All Blacks living in the south and many northern cities growing up had been called "kneeger" by the time they learned to walk so much by the towns whites, most thought that the term was who they were. Today most urban teens and rappers refer to each other that way. The psychological damage has been in the making for hundreds of years.

10,000 jeering, clapping, dancing, "civilized" whites, buying the "body parts" of a 17 year old boy, BURNED ALIVE, and you bigots claim moral and superior standing as opposed to Blacks who could not defend themselves against your savage attacks and behavior.

Most of you have no ideal the terrorism that a black male faced daily from the common citizen and law enforcement.

Too bad, then, that the adults didn't take responsibility for teaching their children better and letting them know that they were better than that and shouldn't tolerate it. Shame on them.

Which is precisely why it should have been taught that you don't call each other the N word, and you treat each other with respect. I'm sorry, but I don't think much of parents who allow this kind of talk. If that makes me morally superior, okey dokey, then.

I'm sure they did. That word wasn't spoken in my household or any other Black household in the area I grew up! For your info!

So why after Alec Baldwin uses homophobic slurs hasn't anyone called for him to be removed from his TV show or advertisements?

Has anyone ever talked to a WWII vet? The term "Japs" is used quite often. Although not PC, these people lived in a different time under different circumstances.

Why don't we respect them too? If not for their sacrifices we wouldn't be here.

Dear Paula Dean,

The sheep have run from you.

No need to worry. Just open an ebay store and sell all your cooking items at wholesale pricing earning more profit than if the sheep soon to die retailers who dropped you.

your investing a second with any of the soon bankrupt retailers, is a wasted moment.

start your own cable channel, and your own internet retail outlet.

give the finger to the sheep.

make sure you have plenty of cracker recipes for sale.

A house divided against itself cannot stand.

The double standard is clear.

Three years ago Mike Greenberg of the Mike and Mike in the morning sports talk show, on Martin Luther King Day, referred to Martin Luther King as Martin Luther Coon. There was no offense taken because Greenberg is a liberal.

Why the double standard?

Bill Clinton said that a few years ago Barak Obama would have been serving him coffee. Why is offense taken at Paul Deen and not Bill Clinton for his remark?
