Like Mr. Phillips, I, too, am from a small southern, 1950’s town, a cotton mill town. I’m about 10 years older than Ms, Deen, and Mr. Phillips, and I remember the “n-word being commonly used by almost everyone I knew. It was not used in a demeaning way, it was just what black people were called then in the south. I was probably in the 3rd grade before I knew there was any other designation for black people.

We had maids, who functioned mostly as baby-sitters for me, and later for my little brother, in order for my mom to work. A black woman named “Leena”, used to keep me, rocked me to sleep, did diaper duty, etc...I remember her very fondly.

We had some maids that were not so good, some stole clothing by putting them on under their clothing and taking them home. But of all of them, they did very few domestic chores.

They were all well compensated, and provided with transportation to and from home.

It was the 50’s, and things were what they were...I was a kid. But I did learn one thing, they were all individuals, and were judged on their own merit, character, and honesty.

Somewhere along the line that got skewed into the belief that whites must love and embrace all blacks, lest ye be “racist”.

My take is, I like some people of all races, but I don’t like all people of any race, including whites. Because, it’s their character and honor that matters, not the color of their skin.

Liberalism requires that we love and accept people of all races, without regard to their character. What a shallow principle that would be.

They say we shouldn’t “profile”, when the human ability to detect undesirable or incompatible character and behavior based on trends, history, personal experience, danger, and common sense is what separates from the animal world.

In this “you will like me, or else” world of childish thinking, we are expected to become obedient robots of the left...to be thrown into the very same meme of the very slavery that the left so rails against and uses to guilt-trip us all into the boxcars.

All that, to say this; I seldom watch Paula Deen’s show, as I don’t cook. My wife - a agreat southern cook, herself - enjoys the show. But, I do think she is being thrown under the bus, not for here admission to using the “n-word”, but for simply being a “southerner”...with money.

Worth repeating.
