The whole damn mess should never have happened. It was a public lynching. Deen lacked tact, that was her crime.
Look what Oprah has done to a simple shop worker. THAT should be a crime— just like screaming fire in a crowded theater. I’ve had enough of the foolish race games.
It has become a comical opera of sorts. A bunch of dimwits crying from something perceived but not factual. Some other dimwits talking as if this were “news” (when it’s not). Some folks doing dramatic acts for a national audience, sort of bold....maybe trying to do Richard Burton but it’s seen more as Barney Fife-type character.
Sadly, news channels are news networks anymore....they are merely entertainment vehicles. The Today Show? If you call it serious journalism....you have to be on some prescription drugs, or you ought to be in a mental institution.
Deen will never get back what she lost, but she should sue the golddigger back. I personally don’t like her show or personality, but what was done to her was sinful. And it was constantly all over the news, unlike Bengazhi or afast snd Furious. There is such a need to support the insitutional racism claim that everything is blown all out of pr oportion to reality: Deen, Trayvon, rodeo clown in Missouri. The farther they get from slavery days in years, the more they cling to it,
I was shopping the other day with my wife when a heard a man behind my back yell “Hey, there’s them Crackers!”
At the sound of those hateful words, I began to cry (just a little...). I thought to myself “How can anyone in this day and age utter the “C-word?” Aren’t we, as a people, beyond that?
I grabbed my wife and hugged her. Slowly my hurt feelings turned to anger. I said to my self “I am a man, and I have my dignity.” I would not let anyone control me and my wife with hateful words!
I turned around, sucked in my breath, and prepared to demand that the man show me respect and dignity.
Just as I was about to speak, I saw the man reaching for a box of Saltines...
I think that's the whole point. They are letting people know that they can use this tactic to destroy anybody, any time, for any reason.
Still believe Paula Deen’s public lynching is due to the fact she actually told the truth and let it slip that the wookie in our WH is a fat swine who cannot stop eating. Race had nothing to do with it. Unfortunately, Paula was not near as lucky as some who faced the Wrath of Obomba’s O-bots.
Agree that her best defense would be to really blossom her conservative values...which must be there (SHE IS FROM THE SOUTH) and put her force behind someone good for this country
Now they have a rodeo clown to destroy. Don’t want anyone dissing obama.
Lisa Jackson will have an interesting resume. “Weeelll, I did work for Paula Dean. But let’s not discuss thaaaat.”
All she needed to say was it was 30 years ago . . get over it. I have. . . .
Just use it every day and it will be so commonplace everybody will accept it...gay rights is an example. Only the blacks use this word, whites need to adopt it so it goes mainstream, then with everybody using it...no problem.
