So I guess that you and I are on the same boat about this God thing. Well I am glad to come across a black fellow non believer. I am tired of hypocritical Xtians who want to stuff the bible down other people's throats. In the black community, this hypocritical behavior is more repugnant because we have many people who don't mind listening to gangsta rap, yet get all holy when it comes to things like gay rights.
Yeah, I guess.

You do know N means slovenly, and lazy, and they come in all colors. Paula Deen is being racially attacked, because she is a hard working white woman who made it without welfare or government help. We can't have that.
I'm sure she did receive Government help. the blonde blue eyed ppl in the south are usually poor who do rely on food stamps and welfare. just like honey boo boo chile. Either you live in a trailer in the woods or you live in a shack and that's a fact.
I'm glad she made it out of the woods and became successful. That woman still has money so lets all just get over this and move on.

You would be wrong. Paula Deens husband left her with 2 children, and she borrowed $200. from relatives to start making sandwiches in her kitchen. She catered lunches for people working at a nearby factory. From there she started a catering business, from there opened her first business, went on Food network, wrote some books, pays more taxes then most people, and asked the government for nothing. That is why the lazy shiftless people are trying to discredit her now. Liberals can't stand success, especially if the successful are white. She will be fine, and probably make more money in the future then she did before.

You are an utter and complete idiot and I suspect. I grew up in the North, then lived in the South for the rest of my adult life.
Welfare states by race. The percentages are apx pices of the welfare pie
"With regard to AFDC the figures are:
White 38.8%
Black 39.8
Hispanic 15.7
Asian 2.4
other 3.3

-----
Only 14% of the population is black, yet they are getting almost 40% of the welfare dollar in this country.
----------
To break down these numbers, we look at how many Whites are in the population as a WHOLE. If Blacks make up less 14% of the population and are almost 40% of all receipients, then they represent about 2.5 times their actual population. Since Whites are over 50% of the total US pop., they represent less than their overall piece of the pie, population-wise. Hispanics are at least 15% of the general population, so they take only about as much as what their population represents. There are over 4X as many Whites in this country than Blacks. Yet both groups are getting a similar sized piece of the welfare pie.

As for Paula Deen, I liked her a lot more after she was accused, but before she started opening her mouth in defense of herself. Now she just sounds like a stupid whiner, spouting dumb things like, "I is what I is." I am getting tired of the wounded victim look. I liked her well enough before that and the N word certainly didn't change that. It is that since then she has been a groveling complaining wimp who needs to just shut the hell up.

Most people like Paula Deen a lot more then the people who are trying t ruin her financially, and ruin her reputation. Try to find one person who have never said the "N" word. It is stupid to pretend a word is the problem. Incidentally we still have freedom of speech, and you can still use that word, or any other.

welfare was designed to help white folk.it was called aid back then. when you all came to this country, you had nothing, you were poor. The government set up property, small businesses and aid for you while others worked sun up to sun down. welfare has always been for white ppl and even if other non white ppl collect it, they still get no where near the amount that white folks get. maybe if you didn't steal our natural resources from our land most blk folk wouldn't need aid. give them back their gold, diamonds, oil, land, iron, coal, cocoa, ivory, bamboo, fine fabrics, herbs and spices, coffee, tea, petroleum, uranium, natural gas, precious jewelry, raw materials, minerals, etc. Give it back ! and you can have all the welfare/aid you need!

Agreed. Those detractors who are on their high horse are simply hypocrites. I'll bet Paula is finding out who her real friends are now. I'll bet also, all of her black detractors have said, "Cracker, or Honkey, or any number of other slurs. It is pure crap that the reverse is somehow OK or not as bad. The intent is hatefullness, and no one likes to be on the receiving end.

I'm sorry, but if I'd been Paula Deen I would have said, "No, I don't ever remember using such a slur, my Mamma taught us better than that." Defy anyone to remember it, have a recording of it, or be able to prove she even remembered it. Cops lie to people all the time, so do politicians. Yet we are supposed to spill our guts to our own ruin. Screw that. I'd play by the same rules the big boys do. You can't prove a person remembers using a word 20 or 30 years ago. Hence, no perjury charges :)NADA no financial ruin either.

These detractors of Paula's have a short interest span. Soon they will be onto destroying someone else over something just as stupid. They need to get a life. Paula will survive just fine. Martha Stewart did when the Government went after her.

Seriously? You are calling Paula Deen an "old" person. Have you ever heard of ageism? This is another form of discrimination. The point was that Paula Dean did not invent racism, and actually, when she grew up in the south it was accepted by the society at large. I have never uttered the n word, but the line of questioning was not fair. Have you ever in your life said such-and-such? So, anything we say, whether or not behind closed doors could come back to destroy our lives? Maybe in the future there will be ways to read our minds as well. Or the question will be phrased, "Have you ever thought of calling whoever a bad name?" But, if you get a gun held to your head in a bank robbery, what is a fair name to call the perpetrator in private when describing this to your spouse? Jerk, idiot, psychopath, piece of garbage, sociopath, villain, a______, jack ___, robber, terrorist? Or perhaps you could think of a more appropriate name to call the bank robber

I have been there, in Alabama, 1968. I was walking home on a rural road, I had a large dog on a long lead, walking in tall grasses. Six drunken black field hands, boozed up on moonshine, brought their car to a halt. As these filthy morons poured out of the rattletrap headed towards my 21 year old white self, they were muttering filthy obscenities at me, one rubbing his privates. After the 'deer in the headlights' look, I yanked on the dogs leash. He came charging out from the underbrush. Does anyone wonder what came out of my mouth after that!!!??? The "N" word was the least of it! I would have called them white trash, slack jawed neanderthals, but NO, that wouldn't have worked. It was more like you Fn MFing "Ns", this dog is going to tear you a new A-- h---. Get in your GD car and get the H. out of here now!! F.Y., you stupid SOBs. When someone holds your life in their hands, there is nothing that won't come out of your mouth. They backed up to get away. Without that dog, I would likely have been raped for days and buried in a shallow grave in the woods. They wouldn't have dared let me go to testify against them. Either the Klan or the law would have taken care of them, and they knew it. I have never wanted to hurt anyone, but have no regard for those who would hurt and destroy me.

I suppose that wouldn't look good in a deposition either! I am not the least bit ashamed of it and never will be.
