The Paula Deen racism scandal just got reignited thanks to a blockbuster New York Times story Thursday that claims the former Food Network star asked black employees to dress like Aunt Jemima.
The profile of Deen's cook Dora Charles overflows with allegations of racist behavior. Deen allegedly paid black employees less than white ones and used racial slurs.
Deen finally found an African-American employee willing to perform this throwback to plantation life in Charles' friend and colleague Ineata Jones, who the Times reports is nicknamed Jellyroll. The paper says that postcards of Jones ringing a dinner bell are for sale at her stores (pictured left).
Jones drew the line at dressing like Aunt Jemima, the Quaker Oats spokeswoman with origins in minstrel shows.

Gotta keep it stirred up.
Don’t forget folks! She’s a liberal Democrap!
It was in the NY Times...It must be true...
Yet they never describe her as that.
Who cares? The media is disgusting.
Where is the guy she dressed up as Uncle Ben?
Nothing like some Geto Boys to brighten one’s day.
...as opposed to clowns and ho’s....
Well, huh...I thought it was Boehner.
I am guessing there would be no problem in dressing that way for a Hollywood movie.
She needs to take her entire business Online. Ignore the media, ignore the trade shows, ignore the mega wussy super store & politically correct wussies that all suck 70% of your profit anyway.
Aunt Jemima pancakes, without her syrup, is like the spring without the fall!
Yeah, I also heard she’s a big Investor in Popeye’s Chicken and she tried to get them hire a Black Woman with a Cajun accent as their Spokesman.
Next thing you know, Arizona Iced Tea will be marketing a Watermelon flavored version to Blacks.
There was a thread posted the other day with a picture of Jesse Jackson with a Aunt Jemimah style dew rag on his head.
This is old news that was posted when the so-called frenzy of “Anti-Paula Dean” was at its highest.
When Hollywood asks people to dress up like slaves in a historical movie, are they castigated like this? Oh, Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
I know she is or was democrat and also know she voted for and gave money to the turd in the white house..I also still think old fat butt is behind this..for what Deen said about her in the paper..In other words Michelle is a HOG..She did not say it in those words but did say Michelle kept eating even during the commercials..That did not set well with the HOG so Michelle went after her to ruin her..That my take on it..
My brother lives in Savannah. Buddy of his had lunch with a local judge. All agreed this is nothing more than a race card shakedown.
The media will not go one single day without pouring gas on the race fire in this country. That’s not going to change.
