Jun 20, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

"I'm old." More or less, that's the excuse given by reps of celebrity chef Paula Deen on Thursday , to explain her use of the "n word."

I bet she was one of the crackers that was against the civil rights movement. And whose family members and ancestors were bombing black churches,lynching blacks,and in the kkk marches.

One of her ancestors owned 35 slaves. That is why she wanted to have that plantation style wedding.

I read the deposition. She was being honest, and it cost her from people making a big deal and twisting it into things that it wasn't. Her whole life is ruined over this and I feel so bad for her. If I had a gun to my head I probably would have said the same thing! No matter what the race was. As far as the restaurant she described... It was a restaurant that was role playing -- big deal. Those people are the ones that chose to work there in that role - knowing full well what that portrayal was. There are movies where people play as slaves so I dont see what the big deal is there. If she was calling her workers slaves or walking around in her place of business calling them the "n" word or telling racist jokes at work then yes, inappropriate. She was not. What people are too stupid to realize is this. SHE EMPLOYEES BLACK PEOPLE!!!! By boycotting her you are hurting them. They will be without a job, many will be forced to go on unemployment and government assistance and thereby forcing them back in to the stigma of "blacks on welfare" etc. LEAVE HER ALONE - DANG!!!

I am very sorry that the Food Channel was forced to fire Miss Paula.

Hopefully, her fans will express their support for her by buying her books in huge quantities. They may also wish to stop watching that channel.

Come on! You have no proof that any of her restaurant employees "acted like a reggin." Why be hateful just for the sake of being hateful??

Does that make you feel better to be mean?

The White Side of the Story about Negroes

This is the reason CNN has dropped Buchanan. It's like Newt G. Said, "your're not supposed to bring up uncomfortable Facts." (verified on Buchanan's website)

Finally..........It is Said Publicly. I have never seen the white side explained better!
Pat Buchanan had the guts to say it. It is about time!!
BUCHANAN TO OBAMA
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids...? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

OK..........will you pass it on ?

YES. I did but will you?

white racists have been heard in America since the Puritan days with Native Americans. you guys talk and talk and talk. Basically, having a conversation with yourself by calling your "facts" facts. Having a TWO-WAY conversation means that you STOP to hear the response to a phrase or sentence that you speak. Then, you stay on topic,(no fallacies). Then, you debate facts in which have been presented and cited and quoted (relevant) to discussion. NO answering question with a question. No personal insults, subject at hand references only. NO having conversations in your head (outloud), debating with yourself and your own mind....and then calling that a debate and factual. I can go on and on and on.
every opportunity given to AA's or any other race has been to their own struggling and counter move to the institutional white racism that was created in the beginning in this country. Institutional racism is NOT considered a racial culture. But, yes crime can become a culture named "white."

Have you ever seen a coon get in trouble for saying cracker? You can even post white slurs, But try and post N and see what happens. Just more double standard. One more reason the negro is the most hated race on earth.

just because you state that AA's or Blacks are the most hated race on earth, does not make it accurate. That's coming from your head and heart.

the "N" word is more than a racial slur, it's promoting and mocking a hate and a racism from the slavery days. That word is a symbol used likewise as a swastika is used to promote institutionalised racism while mocking the victims. Hitler did the same. and so do neo-nazis. I believe neo Nazis even deny the holocaust, So your statements are not surprising.

So, since you think that the "Black" "RACE" "CARD" is used as a vehicle to promote lies and take something that doesn't belong to you, then you must finally realise ....judging by your statement that Dean is doing what you are accusing her victims. Wow. You guys have this projection well rehearsed. Now, your projecting for Dean.

I have no doubt that when Paula Deen was growing up, African Americans were called what we now consider derogatory words/terms. It was acceptable and common then. But just like some other words like icebox=refrigerator and radar-range=microwave, those words are no longer relevant rendering them obsolete. I somehow don’t think she calls her fridge an icebox. The problem is not her age or the era in which she was born. The problem is that she’s not shed the old stereotype of blacks.
