There is politically correct bigotry and non-acceptable bigotry.
Celebrity chef Paula Deen is a celebrity no more. She was fired from the Food Network for a racial slur, the N-word, which she uttered some time ago. She has since apologized for those hurtful remarks against African-Americans. Deen has begged for forgiveness. Nothing doing. Life will never be the same for Paula Deen.
Life is much sweeter for celebrity author Alice Walker, who remains kosher despite remarks hurtful against the Jewish people. She has made no apologies. None necessary. Despite her festering grudge against Israel and her acrimony against Jewish people in general, life is good.
A new book of hers has just been published and already she has book tours lined up across the country. She is being praised and applauded.
No forgiveness necessary for Alice Walker.
In this new book of hers, some 80 pages are given to tantrums against the Jewish people. No problem. Who cares? Last Sunday she starred on C-Span.
A few weeks earlier she was honored at the New Yorks 92nd Street Y. Her fan-base remains strong and loyal.

So when she stands before HaShem to answer for what she did with that special spark of life, I suspect she will wish she was a has been celebrity cook.
There’s a racial double standard because white people allow the double standard to continue. If white people put their collective foot down and weren’t afraid to call black people on their racism, then perhaps something would be done about the unspoken but most ardent racism in America. As long as white people remain afraid to call black people on their racism, then that racism will continue and even grow.
She should have just said “cracker” instead of “nigger”. Then she would have been a hero and doubled all her contracts. And maybe added “Allah Akbar” for good measure.
Same with Jesse “hymietown” Jackson and Hillary Clinton, who was credibly reported to have uttered anti-Jewish slurs. I could go on and on - the crap that came out against Palin, Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, Michelle Malkin - ANY minority or female conservative. The deck is stacked.
Paula Deen is an Obama supporter...what goes around comes around, with this PC crap! Stew in it, Paula! It bit her in the butt!
I would have liked to see Paula tough it out and not give her tormentors the satisfaction of seeing her cry and beg.
She has her millions locked in - she should have told them to go pound salt.
You said it.
I’ve defended her somewhat, but I agree. This PC action is out of hand, and she backs the team that loves to use it.
I’ve been told that in the early to mid 30s, PC was rampant in Germany too. I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but it wouldn’t be hard to believe it is so vile.
This has nothing whatsoever to do with what Paula Deen said years ago .. it has to do with the fact that she’s from the South, she’s a Christian, she didn’t vote for Obama, and she critized Michelle Obama (when Michelle was on Paula’s show). The Obama’s hate all those things about her.
That’s it in a nut shell.
Can you all say Valerie Jarett ..?? I wouldn’t be surprised if she is the person who dug up all the dirt.
Ditto! I wish that celebrities, when caught in these sorts of situations would stop apologizing and start telling their tormentors to go jump off the Golden Gate Bridge.
Have you ever heard a liberal apologize for some sort of slur or for saying something politically incorrect? You haven't? That's because being a liberal means never having to say you're sorry.
Why are people afraid to write out the word nigger? I don’t get it.
She called it like it is. Besides, blacks are the most racist people. The vast majority of them hate whites and use racist terms like “cracka” and “whitey” and “redneck”, not to mention many of them seem to like the term “nigga”.
Four years ago, anybody saying "n*****" here on FR would have been instantaneously banned, and there would have been much outrage. We didn't want to be seen as being like the people on Stormfront.
Now, we don't care. We've been pissed on enough that more and more of us don't care. When things well and truly hit the fan, and a race war starts in earnest, and the black side discovers just what seeds they've sown, we won't care.
Paula Deen campaigned with 0bama in ‘08. She IS an 0bama supporter.
Maybe Charles Manson was onto something, after all.
Agreed. Liberals find it hard to apologize at all.
Bill Clinton used to talk for five minutes never actually addressing what he had done, then he and the press called it an apology.
You are incorrect.....she not only voted for Obama....she campaigned for him!!
Michael Richards (Kramer)didn’t back down.
He was right, why should he back down.
I’m not suggesting that anyone throw around the word nigger lightly or use it to attack someone else. My gripe is all these pubs and blogs etc. that do not spell it out in a news article or quoting someone who said it. That’s just absurd. Almost as if they are pretending the word doesn’t exist.
I hate to see anyone get this kind of media lynching, but maybe this will teach her that if you vote for liberals this is what comes to pass.
Sadly, if she's like most liberals, whether caught up in a PC flap like this, or unjustly targeted by the IRS, or even just out of work and can't find anything, they seldom make the connection between a progressive controlled government and their plight.
In short, you vote liberal you reap what you sow.
Take the test, Alice Walker...we ALL know youd FAIL:
BLACK POLITICAL HISTORY: THE UNTOLD STORY
NOTE: All answers are b.
1. What Party was founded as the anti-slavery Party and fought to free blacks from slavery?
[ ] a. Democratic Party
[ ] b. Republican Party
(Maybe Paula Deen needs to take it, too.)
Wow! I never knew that. I would have never guessed.
Good question. When I was in college, New Left types were using the term "nigger" to refer to those students who refrained from striking, marching in anti-Vietnam War protests, burning banks, etc. and just wanted to study and earn their degrees. They were likely inspired by Jerry Osborne's radical tract The Student as a Nigger (New York: Pocket, 1970)--which, incidentally, had nothing to do with blacks.
Welcome to the PC swamp, Paula . . . wallow in it, ya dumb cracka!
Exactly.Every group ha it’s racists. To say it’s just us is, well . . .racist.
Agree! I was amazed when this PeeResident was elected being shocked to first discover what was being “Preached” to many in the black congregations a la “Reverend” Wright types of pastors. And that people like Oprah were part of that, although she did quit going to his church...altho’ not so with the Obamas who continued to go until it became politically unwise and flung “Rev.” Wright under the bus. These churches were teaching nothing but hate and racism. Opened my eyes as to just who is keeping racism alive and well.
I’m not racist, I’m culturalist.
There are inferior cultures.
In my view, most of our current political and social troubles stem from the infiltration of the 60s new left into the Democratic Party. I despise these people, and I think they really do want to destroy the US, just as their European counterparts are destroying Europe. I am not even sure that they know what they are doing, because I regard them as borderline psychotic. Who but a psychotic could think that you will preserve liberal values by caving to Muslim extremists? But that is exactly what they are doing!
I think he may have thought, if there's going to be a race war, let it be now. While white folks can still win.
Teradittos! When the Caliphate is established, the gays and the radical feminists will be pining for the days of George W. Bush!
