Posted on 07/25/2013 10:09:17 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
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.
She ain’t in no ways tarred!
Like Cornflake without the milk.
A couple years ago they went after a politician for dressing in a nazi SS uniform. Never mind the fact that he was a WWII reenactor.
At this point, I sooo don’t give a sh#%.
any pictures of the Detroit City Council ?
Interestingly enough, I recall many family meal times at grandma's house where there was a dinner bell run and words almost identical to the claim in this article - no slaves were involved....
That is great, LOL!
IF she really did this, then I no longer have any sympathy for her. But its a big if.
I never knew that Aunt Jemima worked for the Quaker Oats guy. How much does he pay her?
Shhhh. It’s a secret already. They use code words to talk about it. Words like “lean” and “drank”. Shhhh. Don’t let on.
What’s the point? Wasn’t there just a clothing store owner who made his private jet crew dress rather, differently?
“And Okra played ‘Yo’ baldheaded Mammy’!”
Red Dawn Chongzilla
Call someone a “field n****r”..... feel the love.
Let it wash over you Luke.
Yep. I also believe the Wicked Witch of the White House sent her flying monkeys out to do dmage to Paula.
Is that a problem?
Are blacks ashamed of the highly esteemed colored lady?
She was what 90% of black people will never be
I have an Idea, Menthol Iced Tea.
“Paula Deen Allegedly Asked Black Staffers to Dress Like Aunt Jemima”
Hell, if Paula wrote me big enough of a check I’d dress up like Aunt Jemima, Col. Sanders, or Cap’n Crunch!
I really hope Deen realizes this and if she finds out then she should sue big butt..
any pictures of the Detroit City Council ?
Here ya go. Happy to oblige.
The jig is up...white people don’t care about racism and neither do black folks...
Whatever, just so we’re not talking about Benghazi, the IRS, or Shaun Donovan’s plan to destroy white middle class suburbs by exporting the inner city underclass to them.
Um, I guess some people are sensitive to dressing like historical characters.
When I was a girl, we visited New Orleans frequently, and black women who worked at some famous praline place in the French Quarter dressed in AuntJemima-type costumes. Those women could not have been more pleasant, charming, delightful. Clearly not bothered or “degraded.”
My family has been here since 1650. I might be asked to wear ugly aprons and boots my greatgreatgreatgreat grammie wore crossing the plains in a wagon. Would I object? Well, for fashion reasons probably. But for historical reasons, I’d be proud.
Why is this not a straight-across analogy? How come you are different if you are black? I don’t think anyone was as downtrodden as some very poor pioneer women who lived in the harshest conditions imaginable, watched their babies die and buried them on the plains never to see even their graves again as the wagon trains rumbled on.
Like cough syrup without skittles.
that photo doesn’t look like anything other than someone ringing a dinner bell, like my “crackuh” aunt used to do...
that claims the former Food Network star asked black employees to dress like Aunt Jemima.
If blacks are all about “civil rights” and freedom, then why didn’t they balk and bring this to light when they were fist asked to participate.
If the took the gig, and dressed in that garb, then - by actions- they are as “guilty” as Deen of “racism”.
“Aunt Jemima pancakes, without her syrup, is like the spring without the fall!
Like Cornflake without the milk. “
Like Amos without Andy.
