Posted on 06/20/2013 5:45:27 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Paula Deen has been called for a deposition in connection with a lawsuit filed by a former employee at the Savannah, Georgia restaurant she co-owns with her brother Earl "Bubba" Hiers. The celebrity chef, 66, was questioned about her alleged use of racial slur and jokes.

OF COURSE racist language and attitudes are not good....let us apply it EVENLY, though, what do you say?
That’s what I would have said
“Oh yeah, all the time....when I am singing rap songs. ‘Black and yellow, black and yellow. Black stripe, yellow paint, them *****s scared of but them ho’s ain’t’ Don’t know it? How about ‘Everybody know me. I’m the same little ***** taught your brother to smoke’”
and the problem is?? Oh yeh...our justice system!!
Silly white-boy, urban ghetto blacks CAN’T be racist. Only YOU can be racist.
I don’t think anyone should be using the term, but if Blacks want to I’m not going to take them to task for it. I think it’s idiotic, but what the hey. They’re not using in the pejorative sense, putting each other down or denigrating each other by doing it. I just think it’s a word I’d never use.
When Whites use it, it is different. We may not like facing that, but it is.
That Deen would actually use this term completely destroys any respect I could have for the woman. The word is so racially charged, and the use is so offensive, it conveys an unacceptable mindset when a person uses it.
Too bad she didn’t use the word “retard”. She would have been given a pass.
It would be funny if she said, “Yes, as is true with many Americans, regardless of race, I said the word “ni@@er”, which is protected by the first ammendment.
Thanks for asking.”
Made me want to throw my coffee cup at the screen.
Evidently, the only word that is not offensive to them, is “FREE”.
When Whites use it, it is different. We may not like facing that, but it is.
Irish temper - no escaping. :)
As liberal and politically correct as the Food Network and HGTV are, they just might drop her show. I’m serious.
I know what you mean.
At least Paula Deen is an honest racist. lol. I can’t say if her intentions were cruel or racist but what was the point in the first place ? Of course the meaning changes coming from an old white southern lady.
Oh no, she said a word which blacks use against each other about 20 times ad day, Hell I’ve been called one too off a black person at my old work.
Sticks and stones might break my bones but words will never hurt me.
Remember that statement alas no more, we have a population which plays the race , card, the queer, card, the victim card because they’re weak and looking for a quick handout
I have to admit to using it, but only as a reference to BEHAVIOR and/or ATTITUDE. It is applying the same standard under which I'd call someone white trash.
Example: Cory Booker isn't one; "Reverend" Al is one and St. Trayvon was one.
I used to agree with your line of thought, but putting hate crimes on the books changes the game. Now, to keep up with these idiotic laws, it should be equally evil for all to use the term.
want to bet, they do use that word to put each other down.
I loved in a ghetto for some time while I got on my feet, besides hearing cracker and “white boy what yu doin ere” crap.
I was called nigger, spick, wop, light bulb.
Racism is alive and worn with a badge of honor in the black community because they know they can get away with it and because dopey whites defend their racism and the way they live.
lived in the ghetto not love, certainly not love
I totally diagree with you. I think it’s worse when blacks use it against each other than when white’s use the word. They most certainly do use it to denigrate each other. They are the ones to claim to be hurt by the word, therefore they shouldn’t be using it at all.
I don’t like Paula Dean because she’s a big fat liberal, not because of her use of a word.
I grew up in Savannah, GA, not very far from where Paula Deen grew up, in the 1950s and 1960s. EVERYONE used the word, including blacks themselves. I get that blacks don’t like the word and try not to use it but if you grew up in the Deep South in that time period it was in common usage. People are going to make mistakes and I’m sure this was a case of her not censoring herself in time. My parents were transplanted Yankees and half my father’s employees were black so I didn’t get the racist thing. Some of those guys who worked for my dad were friends with him, and me, until his or their deaths. I really hope this doesn’t hurt her career too much. And yeah it really gripes me that they still regularly use the term to describe each other bur want to lynch a white person who uses it.
If you ever uttered the words; DAGO, GREASER, WOP, MOBSTER, MAFIA, WISEGUYS, GINNIE’S, et al, etc.. Don’t talk to me ever again unless you apologize.. My children and grown grandkids won’t be calling anytime soon, I’ve been told.. :)
but only as a reference to BEHAVIOR and/or ATTITUDE.
Maybe we can call them all mouth breathers................
Remember her sucking up to Mooch and Mr. Jimmah on her show?
And damn proud of it.
With nobody responding, really says it all.. jeeze :)
I understand the problem with using the n-word.
So, in the interest of fairness and getting rid of racist terms, that whether it is a white *sshole or a black *sshole you wish to address, that we simply use the M-word.
Example: “That stupid m-word cut me off.”
“And yeah it really gripes me that they still regularly use the term to describe each other bur want to lynch a white person who uses it.”
It is a power word. They can freely use it but it is a weapon for them to use against others to stifle free speech, for jury nullification (see OJ) and monetary gain.
They must have really liked you.
When you outlaw a person’s words, you control them. Coming soon the outlaw words... Freedom, Patriot, Tea Party, Constitution,
and Founding Fathers.
I’m about the same age as Paula Deen, and she was born and raised in Georgia, and I was raised in Mississippi, so we probably had about the same experiences growing up.
When we were small children, in the 50’s and 60’s, just learning to talk, we obviously would learn words and their usage through listening to our parents and other adults, just like anybody else on the planet.
We would learn that this thing we lived in was called a ‘house’, we rode in ‘cars’, there was a ‘tree’ in the front yard, the man mowing the yard was a ‘n-word’. We had no other word for them in common usage. It was not especially ‘racist’, it was like calling a bear a bear and a duck or a duck. As small children we knew no other word with which to refer to black people. It was used in common conversation, even between blacks and whites, to refer to a person that was black, no insult intended or meant.
It was not until the end of Civil Rights Era that the n-word became un-civil in public use.......
The longer her show was on the worse the exaggerated Southern Drawl got, add on her Yeller Dog Dem liberalism, grew tired of watching.
All that aside, her restaurant is food paradise!
That's because we are shocked that you even speak English, since you just got 'off the boat'.
I heard otherwise but have not been there myself so bow to your greater knowledge.
Had a lot of good ideas, did you?
was in a barbers and a Haitian guy comes flying in waving a knife, I;m sitting there thinking great I;m white here we go but instead he;s looking for his wife.
Used to take the dog for a walk and was always asked if my dog wants to fight their dogs.
Get in the bus and always got what you doing here white boy, spic, nigger etc or you lost bla bla.
Living ina ghetto as the only non black person is like living in hell and they love their racism and racist language but then pretend to be outraged if they hear the word nigger or negro .
Last night when I saw another thread on this, my first thought was if she was black, she wouldn’t have even been sued, and this wouldn’t be news. Double standards.
My pastor in my Baptist church at my new home in Kentucky said the choire from the local “colored” church was coming to perform on Sunday night.
I tell people that moving here from seattle was very much like going back in time 50 years, most of the time in the “good” way. This is an example of a “neutral” way. My wife and I cracked up.
We also think it’s funny that a bedroom suite here is called a bedroom suit. :-)
People here are NOT dumb. They just have different priorities.
That said, I still use words in private that I would never use in public, like 'homo', 'queer' and 'faggot'.
exactly, in most AD;s the white guy is the dopey idiot but change it to a woman or a black guy and its not so funny then remember cops the program who came under attack because they showed too many blacks being arrested and doing drugs.?
I;m sick of the double standard
stuck out for being the only white guy
Why are we so concerned about not offending Democrats?
Deen described (to her husband, in private) a situation where a black man came into a bank and stuck a gun up side of her head. She was mad. I’d be mad, too, and might have called him worse. - There is no private any more; only PC, and people with your mindset nod approval. - We are not allowed to buck Obama on anything, because he’s half-black, and that would be RACIST! Meantime, he’s taking this country on a ride to who knows where. All aboard!!
These new offended populations seem to have thin skin.. When I was growing up in Chicago, we, Italians were called DP’s.. Displaced Persons, aka illegals.. I had mothers telling their daughters to stay away from me and my kind..
However.. In retrospect I told my daughters about the same thing.. jus sayin.. :)
