LOL
i mean Asians wouldn't forgive nobody why doblacks always doit..
it is highly inaccurate to generalise a race regarding anything. It's all individual. Forgiveness is up to the individual and so are choices.

Yes, Deen can be forgiven but Deen also has to face repercussions. Just like everybody. Not everyone faces repercussions for their offences however. Life is not perfect nor are people.

Deen needs to become more integrated within her community. Most racists in general need to be more integrated. segregation leads to supremacy thinking.

Here is taking your word for it that you are AA or mixed AA. And, here is an organisation I believe is on the right path. They speak realities and seem to seek real solutions:

Paula Deen has a right to say whatever she'd like as long as she's not breaking any law. It's time to move on and forgive her. She wasn't the first to utter the "N" word, and I'm sure she won't be the last.
Sir, some African Americans are still using the N word sad to say.

first for accuracy (is that not important with these issues?) this is not how "Black folks interact with Asians."

it should be stated that this is how this supremacy minded AA's interacted with this Asian man.

The AA's in this video were obviously wrong. There is a group segregated off that believes them to be the only children of God. I believe I addressed this on a previous post. It's up to NO ONE to determine who God's only children are or even whether or not this is important to Him.

The AA's in this video also stated they have the freedom to hate. This is true. Hate is a human emotion to not be feared and is to be managed appropriately. The same with love. It is not healthy AND is not wise to walk through life naively loving anything and everything as we look through rose-coloured glasses. It is not healthy AND is not wise to walk through life naively hating anything and everything as we look through a dark veil. It is our human and civic responsibility to be tolerant. And,if we cannot, then we need to be responsible (each of us) and find solutions. If that takes many organisations, movements, laws, amendments, school/college educational tools, and/or all of the above. Doing nothing of course gains nothing. And, it is quite the mess in America. Because, the "regime" in America (under homogenous demographics) has been Protestant, Anglo-Saxon, and "white." All others were discriminated against if they were not killed first. That "system" is not democratic at all and has to be torn down so that democracy can be built in America. And, it should take a race war to do that among civilised, well-travelled, intelligent, and wise people.

why would you think that just be viewing this video, anyone would believe that this is "how AA's treat Asians?"

here's a link as well of "white" who think that they are the "special race" to God as well:

And, all of these issues are why something needs to be done yesterday for the future of our children in this country.

Funny how blacks get into a huge uproar when a white person says the n word, but have no problem with saying "cracker" every ten seconds.
cracker is a word used to describe "Massa" or The overseer who liked to crack the whip. The slaves called them that when they got physically whipped.
Another meaning for cracker is a white person with cracked skin. like a saltine cracker. the slaves and the people of the 1950's and 1960's thought white people skin was ugly and cracked.
or cracker means wicked, mean, evil spirited.

Ya know what most people won't even pay attention to is the comments about it being a double standard. As has been mentioned in others this is a total double standard. Black people say the n word all the time... go work in a prison you'll hear that word about 150 times in about 2 minutes. It doesn't matter that those guys are inmates don't let that obscure your vision they act the same way on the street that they do inside. It isn't just prison behavior. Not only that but the rap songs use it constantly... if you don't want the word used why support it. And yes it is supporting it because your saying its alright to say the word. Famous people are always emulated by someone and if your a famous rapper others will emulate you its that simple. God forbid though, we get called honkeys, and cracker, and whitetrash, rednecks and all kinds of other things and do you ever hear of a white person suing a black person over that? What it's not racist because white people weren't slaves in the past? Do we forget in history its taught even other black sold other black people out for slavery... Its not just about white on black... People let things get to them far to much. We live in America where there is supposed to be a freedom of speech, but that simply cannot be true when you say something and someone takes such huge offense that you can be slapped with a lawsuit and lose your livelihood. According to most studies or what seems to the common deal these days, minorities of all kinds not just black people, have more advantages than white males. It just makes this such a huge freaken double standard.

shyyyyt ive used the n-word for years and will continue to do so.
i do it in an affectionate kind of way as in "my knigguh" and so on...and when it is done that way blacks dont seem to mind.
This only means you listen to rap music. black people from the old school do not use that word. the ignorant rappers do. That word has been used so much that it was passed down to other generations. you're making up excuses just so you can use the word.

yeah blacks are never racist, yeah right... the worst. they're so offended by that word, but yet they always use it in rap... hypocrites.. but if a white says, just another way to get another free meal ticket, if its not from drug dealing, pimping, stealing, this is just another clever way to get something from the white man without having to work for it. sue somebody who has a lot of money over a freaking word, and that person has to lose their livelihood over it. she never should have apologized or hired any of these leeches. anytime anybody cries n::::r. is time to collect a paycheck. sick of this garbage , whatever happened to freedom of speech, yet whites are considered crackers, white trash, nobody gets paid over that such a double standard.

Wal Mart has the Paula deen line of Kitchenware. Since they are discontinuing the line they will probably put their inventory on sale. Paula Deen's books are selling better then usual. She isn't going hungery, and will probably market her stuff overseas where the N work is not a problem. It isn't the end of her life, I am sure.

she and bubba will be fine and the food network channel will be fine without her. hopefully she wont still have a old fashioned slave wedding with black men dressed up in suits with bowties while she's waiting to get her back banged out.

Dance, party and laugh will you can, hard times are ahead.
what free ride? you mean the free ride your ancestors set up for you? You left poor Europe and came to this country dead ass broke and did not work for hundreds of years. You weren't educated, you had no respect for your women and you drunk whiskey chewed tobacco and raped little boys and girls. You stole land and when blacks worked hard you would blow up their homes, churches and businesses. You are not the majority in the world cause your little wee wee don't work anymore. Your shooting blanks and now you have to create sperm banks for survival. You need to start worrying about the Chinese, global warming, hurricanes and tornado's because hard times are ahead for you too.

it IS quite true that America will not be able to withstand outside sources which run contrary to America, if Americans cannot come together. Racism and supremacy is one predominant factor preventing this.

Why do you think I am SO passionate about alleviating the level and viral hate in this country ....the country needs serious therapy and education. It's not just about what happened to my children or that unmanaged hate and lack of tolerance is wrong. It's about being strong as a country. So, if there are any "elite" out there planning to take over the whole world (one conspiracy theory) then, I would think coming together as a country would create a strength that would be difficult for any rival to influence negatively.

if we cannot come together as a community, we cannot as a country. If one person or group wants and feels entitled to be superior to the rest of us, then they are weakening our communities and this country. If one group or race did have total control, it would still weaken the country. In a democratic society I believe that the masses can be a curse or it can be a blessing to a country. But,it is the responsibility of the masses to determine this..........starting with the individual.

The most difficult formof communication is the written word, because it s sometimes misunderstood.
Living in Indianapolis in the 1960's white neighbohoods were moving north, east, and west as neighborhood's ethnicity changed.
The woods I safely played in recently has had bodies discovered in them.
My son had friends in Broad Ripple that were in there back yard enjoying a cook out, when two young black men, invaded ther peace, pistol whipped the men, beat them with a chair, stole their wallets, drank their beer,(yes drank their beer), in early afternoon. The home owner whom disliked guns, is now trained nd wns one. He also moved outside of the Indianapolis area.
And you suggest integration? These sort of things happen regularly. These actions by a few do no help race relations.
The recent beating of a white mother by a black man caught on nanny cam further the distrust.Intagration???? Why to save on gas expence's due to travel?
I am sorry, but violent actions by a few will not cause people to want to integrate.
I could relate stories of my own where black men have attempted to violently intimidate me.
On the reverse side, my roommate in college, a black man from Gary was so big and strong that no oe screwed with our room.
My black friend from work was built like a linebacker, and I would trust him like a brother at my back.
Why would I want to move into a neighborhood where a drive-by might take the life of my family, or I would get shot walking on the sidewalk while white? Nope I do not think so.
