Here are the facts... can anybody tell us why she deserves to be ostracized?

______________________________________

Paula has compelling personal story. In 1989, she was divorced with two children and $200. She started out selling sandwiches to workers and rolled it into an empire. I saw her and her boys at Uncle Bubba’s once. That’s as close as I have come to a celebrity.

Paula was at a deposition. She was asked if she had ever used the n-word. What was her attorney thinking? Why would he let her answer that question? What does that have to do with anything? Every person in the U.S. and the English-speaking world has used it at one time or another.

Paula answered honestly. There was a bank robbery. A man with a gun. The n-word was spoken. America gasped! How could she? She immediately became an outcast. Her cooking show was cancelled. Wal-mart dropped her. Her pots and pans were marked for clearance. She was skewered on late night TV.

This could have been any one of us.

Why you ask? Well, a lot of FReeprs say it's because she voted for HUSSEIN - nothing more. You can go back and look at previous threads, the ignorance here is stunning to say the least.

She is being railroaded.

However, she should not have groveled for forgiveness on the Today show or on YouTube.

The he!! with political correctness. ‘Pod.

Lets look at the bigger picture here. Hate is being used as a tool to prosecute someone in violation of their First Amendment rights. Would a black peron be “put on trial” for saying “cracka” or “honkey” in the past. Of couse not.

Somehow you know the 0 administration is laughing at Paula Deen because she’s allowed herself to be manipulated by her fear and she played right into their race game which they are trying to use to trample your First Amendment rights. Once she started blubbering on TV they turned it into a spectacle and the sharks started circling hungry for blood. I wouldn’t apologize for it. I’d explain why i called that person a n- if they were acting up and say those were different times and that I no longer use that term out of respect for the good black people that it might offend. End of story.

Wal-mart dropped her.

I'm waiting for Wal-Mart to pull all of those "Rap/Hip Hop" CD's that use the N word in their so called music. And...how bout all of the movies that contain the same?

Crickets.

Because celebrity is fickle. One day the crowd's love you, next day they love to hate you.

I believe it’s time to hunt down and kill the entire cast of “Blazing Saddles”.
