” I hate the n word and would never even use it in a joke, BUT Paula Deen grew up in a segregated era in the south and I’m sure they feel totally different than the normal person. “

First off, “segregated era of the South”? Hate to tell you but Jim Crowe laws started in the North. I know public school history taught by the communists want you to believe racism was only in the South, but the North had its fair share. Hint: Slavery was started in the North by a black man that enslaved another black man during a time when slavery was illegal.

Second, what kind of “off color” jokes have you told yet refuse to use that dreaded n-word? Really? Can’t tell a black joke using that word but any other word is fair game?

I’ve used it in jokes. And other ethnic slurs, too. Big deal.

Blacks are the biggest n-—— users.

Oh, please. It isn’t a nice word, but lending it some kind of mystically forbidden & horrifically evil aura is playing into the hands of the left. It’s a racial epithet, nothing more-—there are lots of them.

According to People Mag while Paula did reply “Yes, of course” to the question about using the n-word, she also added, “It’s been a very long time.” Paula said that she had used the word or thought about using the word in the 1980s when she was a bank teller and the bank was held up by a black bank robber, and she says she “probably” used the word when describing the events to her husband. Paula also said, “But that’s just not a word that we use as time has gone on. Things have changed since the ’60s in the South. And my children and my brother object to that word being used in any cruel or mean behavior. As well as I do.”

It is still inappropriate to joke like that at work, especially as a boss, regardless of how you grew up or who else is doing it. No excuse for stupidity and laziness. :)

I think I told these kinds of jokes as a 6 year old kid in 1964. My parents caught me using the n word back then and took the belt to my backside.

As a Christian I recognize that we are all descendants of Adam and essentially one human race. It is sinfully prideful to think and speak as if "my race is better than your race." Paula Deen's apology may or may not have been genuine, seeing as how liberals are notoriously racist.

Having said all that, I am not blind to the trashy cultures found in all kinds of people groups. As has been noted by both white and black conservatives, the trash culture within the black community is aided and abetted by the liberal democrat party.

First, I am in north Florida and you have never seen so many beautiful babies of mixed color being carried around by redneck grandparents. I swear.
But I remember hearing grandpa talk about mass hangings of “them” at the courthouse square. He was otherwise very decent man.
His son my Dad sent away inlaws in 70s,interracial marriage, not welcome on his land.
All those pretty babies though prove how far we have come.

True. But, when you choose to support the philosophy that places political correctness above common sense, and do so in a very public manner, you reap what you sow. Had it been a solid Conservative in that position, she would have been in the chorus screaming for blood. Liberals are generally hypocrites, this one got caught in the mousetrap.

Why hate, it's just a word and the word is nigger.

Brothas and sistas call each other nigga all day long and it's not hateful.

It only becomes hateful if a white person uses it? How insane is that?

I have had many friends of different color, religion, etc., and we could tell jokes about each other without being offended. I guess the difference is none of us were actually bigoted, and none of us had any monetary incentive to file a complaint.

Say, what? People who grew up in the South are not normal people? I find youre comment incredibly offensive.

Not too many people her age could truthfully say they never used that word, it was fairly common when I was growing up. Where I lived there were no blacks, but as she said jokes were about the different ethnic groups and in the jokes the groups were all called by their slang (racist now) names. I can’t imagine that she was still doing that with the climate these days, I don’t know anyone else that is still doing that. The blond jokes took over for the ethnic jokes many years ago. Clueless of her if nothing else.

I moved from the north to the south 25 years ago. The worst racists I knew were those that moved from the north at the same time (a bunch of us moved to start a new factory). Now the worst racists are generally black liberals who hate whitey while taking all they can from him.

I say we hook-up Billy Clinton to a sodium-pentanol (sp) machine ...

and see how many times "America's First Black President" has used the "n-word" in his life ...

especially in reference to the Kenyan-traitor occupying the U.S. White House ...

She would’ve been dumped for her diabetes thing but she had a couple of years left on her contract. Paula has several horrid PR gaffes under her belt and I’m betting the decision for not renewing her contract is for a lot of things.
