Jones drew the line at dressing like Aunt Jemima, the Quaker Oats spokeswoman with origins in minstrel shows.

Well, huh...I thought it was Boehner.

I am guessing there would be no problem in dressing that way for a Hollywood movie.

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.

Oh wait...

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 hope she sues the crap out of these people..

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.

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.

"I said, 'I'm not ringing no bell,'" Charles told the paper. "That's a symbol to me of what we used to do back in the day."

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....

“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!

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.

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”.
