Posted on 06/26/2013 12:48:00 PM PDT by ThomasMore
Paula Deen went on "Today" Wednesday morning to tearfully defend herself against allegations she is a racist, as her multimillion dollar food empire teetered on the brink of collapse.
Recently fired by the Food Network, Smithfield Brands and Caesars Entertainment over her admission in a sworn deposition that she had once uttered the N-word, the emotional celebrity chef thanked the companies who have stood with her and lashed out at her critics.
"I is what I is, and I'm not changing," a teary Deen told host Matt Lauer. "If there is anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard that it kills me."

Yes, Paula, it's the liberal progressive left.
“I is what I is” reminds me of Popeye’s “I am what I am.”

Barack...hes talking down to black people...telling niggers how to behave.-Jessie Jackson.
WASHINGTON - In a vulgar tirade caught on tape by Fox News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said he wanted to cut his [Barack Obamas] nuts out and he accused the fellow Chicagoan of talking down to black folks by giving moral lectures to African-Americans, source said Jacksons shocking quotes were picked up by a hot mic before an interview on health care in Foxs Chicago studio last Sunday.
Yea... I didn’t see any outcry from the MSM to bury Jessie “the race baiter” Jackson...and his tirade was recent. How many times I hear these black folk talking about “crackers”. It’s all BS from the LEFT.
She courted them shamelessly, though!
If I’m not mistaken, isn’t Paula Deen a liberal who was paling around with Michelle Obama on her show before the election? If so I have little compassion for her, when you lie down with dogs, you get fleas.
I Yam what I Yam.
Why does democrat senator bobby rush still have a job when he called someone an “elitist white boy?”
and why does chicago teachers union president, Karen Lewis, who blamed “rich white people” for the failure of chicago schools still have a job?
Answer: Because tyrannical PC rules only apply to white people.
It was pathetic that she groveled before Matt Lauer.
That’s why they are already forgiving her. If she were Conservative, forget it.
Is you is or is you ain’t?
She was trampled as she was stampeding leftward.
PC is killing America.
IT needs that rock!!!
No sympathy for her because she is being destroyed by the same politically correct forces she supported. As my mother would say.......she made her own bed
I'm not a 'foodie' and have never watched Paula Dean but I assume she is a wealthy woman. If so, she should stop apologizing and 'move on'. If she loses some sponsors/endorsements, so be it. At her age she can retire or simply go back to a smaller audience and never talk about this rubbish, again!
too bad Jesse doesn’t work for any of those companies....he just steals money from others
finding ijoy in someone else’s pain and problems is not befitting a conservative
When I was a kid we used the dreadful banned only blacks can say it word, no one was offended then, people shrugged it off just like us Italians shrugged off the word "wop" or "guinea", no one blinked an eye at "chink" or "harp" or "spic", good God, apparently a lot of people were born without spines.
