Spot on. Paula Dean was exonerated.
Sort of, her law suit was thrown out since a white woman was the complaintant, the judge ruled she was not overly hurt, though hearing hateful words is hurtful, I would think.

I note that Target, Wal-Mart, and Home Depot have NOT hired her back or have begun carrying her junk again and most probably will not. However, Paula got to use her free speech which can be a double edged sword. I wonder if the losses were worth it for her?

Many blacks, as well as whites, worked in the fields well after the fact that they didn't have to as a slave. If was a job. They had to survive.
And they had to use different water fountains and not use white restrooms and could not sit at lunch counters or enter restaurants. Big time black entertainers, like Sammy Davis Jr. could NOT stay at the hotels or night clubs they performed at, or even walk through the front door.

Yes, I can see why you miss those golden days of yore, of you being the ruling class and others not up to your standards and you did not have to sit by scary ethnics. How sad you must be for those good old days.

Just think, Michelle Obama sits on the same toilets that the whitest women alive Nancy Reagan and Barbara and Laura Bush did. I guess that sickens you.

You are correct about one thing, this is America, but your free speech does NOT come without consequences. Many careers have been derailed by careless words. The old song of yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater comes to mind also.
i do not like the n word, I had the misfortune of being raised in a time when ppl were ignorant and I didn't know better. I do now, I hurt no one . Mrs Paula was railroaded , just like mr Robertson .

Phil is moving his show as soon as the contract is up. The show brought in millions of dollars in advertising, and merchandising revenue for A & E. Soon they can use his new Duck Commodore Production Company to go elsewhere. D D generated $883 million dollars last season for A & E. Now do you know why A & E couldn't give Phil enough kisses? They will never have another show that makes them as much money. Never. Phil is laughing, and dancing all the way to the bank.

Yes. All those thing are ONLY in Christians. No atheist or Jew has ever done wrong. No Meth Head, Crack Head or Coke Addict has ever had those afflictions unless they believed in Jesus.

ah, i see you read past where Christians stop reading

32 "Though they are fully aware of GodÂ’s righteous decree" that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.

the Christians that pick the verses from chapter 1, that they like to use, claim that non Christians are not aware in order to understand the word of their god.

the people being spoken to in the end verses are clearly aware.....
