'Reverend' Al Sharpton: Don't Judge Paula Deen For OLD Racist Comments
TMZ ^ | 6/24/2013 8:30 PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Posted on 06/24/2013 4:24:12 PM PDT by drewh

Paula Deen is getting a raw deal for using the n-word 27 years ago ... at least that's the opinion of none other than Rev. Al Sharpton.

We asked Sharpton -- a renowned figure in the Civil Rights movement -- if Paula should be forgiven, and he was somewhat sympathetic, saying ... "A lot of us have in the past said things we have regretted saying years ago."

The Rev. added Paula should instead be judged based on the outcome of the current lawsuit ... from a former employee accusing Paula and her brother of using offensive language.

"You can't deal with what is fair and not fair till we see the outcome of the present circumstances she's accused of ... not something 20 years ago."

Sharpton also addresses another hot button racial issue ... fried chicken.

Really. You gotta see it.

I guess I’m the only person here who doesn’t know who Paula Deen is-—but I never watch television, so that might be why—LOL!

I didn’t realize that was 27 years ago. Not that it matters to me. I saw Obama less than 27 minutes ago ...

He’s only saying that because she’s an Obama-loving Rat.

So Sharpton now has authority to grant absolution on past racial peccadilloes?

How many of these “news stories” are just to cover obama and to confuse issues?

I don’t know where people got that this happened 27 and 40 years ago. The question she answered and her answer did not indicate it happened that long ago. Plus, the time period covered in the law suit was recent. I think this is a dodge.

Al must not know what “in the past” means. (Hint: it means “years ago.”)

Yep. She gets no sympathy from me. I’m glad she now knows what it’s like to live under the PC shadow that her liberal pals have been pushing for years.
