Good to know. If she had done something like kill and torture dogs for fun and profit she wouldn't be in this much trouble.

While I detest racial slurs out of anyone's mouth, against any race of people, this should be handled in the civil court system and not the court of public opinion, fueled by the media out for blood.

Finally somebody is showing some commom sense. How may people out there have never listened to or told jokes that were racist to all humans. Men, Women, Husbands, Wives, Children, Senior Citizens etc. We have all made mistakes in our past but God is the only judge and forgiver.

Thanks to Grand Home Furnishings for not joining the ridiculous witch hunt and rush to judgment against Paula Dean. I am not a fan of hers but still think it is ridiculous to crucify her for something she said years ago, admitted, and apologized for. I truly believe that this would be a non-issue if she did not have a thick Southern accent and fit the un-PC mold of a Southern bigot, even though she clearly is not one...

Obama sat in a church and listened to Reverend Wright use Gods name in vain(which is a lot worse than the use of the N word) for 20 years and would probably still be sitting there if he hadn't become President. It took him 20 years to throw Wright under the bus and only after the tape of Wright using Gods name in vain came out to the voting public. Black comedians use the N word and Cracker and Honky and other racist terms no one says anything about it. By no one I mean Jesse (Hymie town) Jackson and Al(Tawana Brawley) Sharpton.

Hymie and Hymietown was a reference that Jessie Jackson used in his '84 presidential nomination bid. It was a direct reference to Jews and New York.

I think if something was said 25 or 30 years ago and it just came out OH WELL we have all said something like that in our life. If anyone is smart enough it does not apply to race look it up in the dictionary. That is just all the guys whom have "saggin" pants. So all of the comedians, movies, rap songs etc.... are all of these people going to get in trouble like Paula did? Let it go it was 25 years ago!!!! Just like everything things else LIVING IN THE PAST. It is 2013 get over it and give her her shows and lines back!!!!!

Actually, Mr. Sharpton said that Paula Deen shouldn't be judged by something she said 20 years ago.

We're not judging Paula Deen JUST for something she said 20 years ago. If she used the "n' word decades ago and had since learned better - I could have said, ok, now you know better so let it go. But the thing I can't forgive is that this woman could even entertain the idea that throwing a wedding and having black men dress up in little tuxedos would be cute or entertaining - that crossed a line as far as I'm concerned. It means her attitude has not changed one bit. I don't care how much she sits on TV and cries. And I long since stopped buying anything from Grand anyway. Their quality is no better than their judgement. Sorry Paula, you got what you deserved!

Lots of black people say that word all the time, as well as other racial slurs to other races. It takes away ALL credibility from them for feeling incensed by other people saying it. Double standards never work. And, every human being on the planet had ancestors somewhere that owned slaves. MLK's dream was for people of all colors, that ALL would be judged by their character rather than the color of their skin.
