I'm not really surprised at Paula I mean she's from a different era black folks were drinking from the COLORED only water fountain when she was a kid!!! Not to mention she's from a place where they still have ZULU and REX parades that shi is soooooo racist
I'll tell you what, I am the same generation that Paula is from. I grew up in Wisconsin and Michigan. I was raised without a sense of racism in a small town. But what I found when I moved into the South was "reverse racism" that was serious. I immediately made a black female friend in my rural area. She knew that I was very naive and trusted everyone. It was SHE who called the black men "Bucks." And told me the area was filled with low class black men very capable of violence and to be very careful of them, little did she know when she made that statement, that I had had the terrifying experience with the 6 black field hands. I watched black men would descend on a small country store in huge groups and shoplift them blind, blocking the view of the owners with sheer numbers while whole six packs of soda and other goods were stolen. Eventually black men robbed them so many times in the evening, this elderly couple had to give up their country store. They were sick of being at gunpoint. They were never once robbed by white men!!
One of the problems with blacks, is that many of them feel that if you have white skin, you as an individual OWE them a living. The truth is, you are not an individual. You are part of the white race and are prejudged as the enemy as such.... Sound familiar???

uhhhh...you ever heard of truth? The woman is old.
Its no excuse. If she would have answered "Yes I've used that word in the past, but i have since realized i was wrong to have said it, and i regret my ignorance", that would be somewhat understandable. But nooooo...she answered "Why yes, OF COURSE". jesus h christ
She's a racist. An old one.
She sees nothing wrong with her racism. She is descended from the slave owning aristocracy that used to oppress blacks. She has on many occasions justified slavery.

you are not from the south where don't hide their racist feelings. There are low class people in every race. Clearly there is a difference from a black man vs a n...ga. I have never met anyone black that felt like anyone owed them anything. I have met plenty of racist low class white people who were drug dealers criminals etc. I try to judge people on an individual basis that way you seem intelligent and not racist

All you have to do is pick up yesterday's paper in Chicago, and see some of those people are worse then the N word. 74 wounded, and 12 dead celebrating 4th of July in their neighborhood. Did you go to a cook out? Shoot anyone? No? Why not, it is easier to get away with then saying the N word. Welcome to Obama's America.

Bullshit. Do you really think if this sort of killing was going on in the white Chicago neighborhoods Holder, and Obama wouldn't send in troops? This is their city.

No there are no killings taking place all over the city. My teens have friends there from school, and visit all the time. It is in the south west neighborhoods, black neighborhoods. Over the last weekend it was worse, because it started on Wednesday, and lasted 4 days. The shooting has not let up because the city ordered extra police. Our police go into those neighborhoods after the shootings.

Planet of the Apes is located on the South and West sides of the city. Humans are safe in their neighborhoods.

Nobody cares what you apes are doing to yourselves, although it's impossible not to notice the blood oozing out of the South and West sides like the elevator doors in The Shining.

Black people we have to stop explaining ourselves to caucasions. They know right from wrong. It goes in one ear and out the other in regards to people who don't care. It's time to start leaving all matters in God's hands. Prayer is powerful. God says vengeance is mine I will repay. Take matters to God and leave it alone. So many people are angry about their lot in life. It's not really about the n word or Paula in regards to the anger of most people in this forum. Some are not getting along with their spouse, Some are not getting along with their boss, some are not being pleased sexually, menopause and pms has a lot to do with their anger as well. They are using Paula as a means to vent and that's ashame. I've always like Paula. She's always seemed like a very pleasant person to me. It's not my place or anybody's place to judge her. The lawsuit is between Lisa,Paula and her family. Leave me and everyone else out of it. One love.

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
You're so stupid. How can you compare AGEISM to RACISM? With the exception of those who die before they get old, everyone ages but not everyone - OR anyone, can become another race of people. Flawed analogy.
