Black people in support of Paula Deen...



I've yet to hear one black person be real offended at Paula Deen's comments some 25 years ago or so. Matter of fact, I spoke to two customers of mine this week who are black and the subject came up, others in the office not me (that isn't wise in my profession). In both cases both chimed in and said they thought it was blown out of proportion, and one is a big fan of hers, and is put off that she isn't on TV anymore. Said it was ridiculous, and she even commended her in her honesty and candor.

So who is really put out by all this? I seriously have not run into one single person who is either taken back by it, or put out that someone said this word before. You know, if I were black and heard white people getting all huffy and puffy and shocked, I would think it was the height of dishonesty, and would seriously question what kind of a person they really were, mostly pretty dishonest. I think many blacks see Paula and see her comments as being honest and transparent and they don't see anything mean spirited with her as if this is a constant thing with her hating an entire people. Heck, most of them feel exactly the way whites do with crime, probably more so because it affects many of them personally, and I can't tell you how many times I have heard black people refer to the refuse in their community by that word, because it's embarrassing to them, and they don't identify with that kind of behavior as much as good whites do. Most don't want to live around the bottom feeders anymore than anyone else does.

So tell me, who is really in all honesty that put out with Paula's comments a quarter of a century ago? Is this really that big of a deal, and have you heard any black people taken back and offended by it?

White liberal communists, i.e. progressives. And the guilty white dupes they've brainwashed / indoctrinated over the years.

It's the height of dishonesty, trying so hard to distance themselves and make sure that people see them as blameless. Paula was honest, and black people are nobody's fool. I think most appreciate her honesty, and see right through that horse shite by those trying so hard to appear shocked and enraged, just as everyone else does.

Great link Bayou, and while I'm not a fan of Paula's cooking and such , I do think she's a pretty decent person inside. From why I've heard of her personal life story and struggles, she has a pretty good grasp on what it takes to struggle and make it, and isn't a snooty little pretentious southern belle by any stretch, and I don't sense in her that she's anything but a pretty decent person inside. I also don't sense that she has a hatred for blacks, and what that pastor said of her character in helping black charities without tooting her own horn kind of reaffirms the kind of person she is. REAL...

Same here, lol. I read today that her publisher cancelled a 3 book deal, so add that to the Food Channel and Walmart and whatever else. This is fast becoming "the persecution of Paula Deen," all over something she was honest enough to admit she said a quarter century ago. I guess Obama can "evolve" but old white people can't.

Where do you get "quarter of a century ago"? My recollection is that the allegation was that she and her brother (mainly him) used that word at work recently. She admitted that she may have done so, but only when telling jokes. She couldn't remember specifically (yeah right), and could only recall specific incidents from longer ago.

That's BS! See how people get news all misconstrued. I just saw on television where they say a book she has out just shot to number one and how all her loyal fans inundated the Food channel with hate mail for canceling her contract. Only it wasn't the Food channel that her show was on, but the Food network.

and now because of all that mail that the Food channel received they wanna talk a deal with her. Paula Deen will be just fine.

Remember this former klansman turned Democrat Senator?








Exactly how many times would you say if you had to take a stab at it that that word came out of his mouth? How about just in a day?


It's ridiculous what people will turn a blind eye to when they have something to gain or hide from it.


51 YEARS in public office no less......

I don't think black folks are nearly as offended as white progressives.

Paula was honest


I would love to know how you guys think you are so 'informed' on this.

About 30 years ago, PD was quoted in a report to the police, that she described the thief as n******. Try to understand that for a second.

It was RECORDED in a police report. Paula Deen KNOWS it was recorded. So, it would be stupid to deny or lie about something recorded in a police report right?

So in her deposition last month (she and her brother are being sued in a case they will assuredly lose) she was asked if she ever used the 'N' word, in her life. Well of course, if she were smart, she would say yes (it's recorded from 30 years prior).

Here is what the uproar is about: she and blatantly racist brother is being sued for a racially charged workplace environment. She is DENYING ever using the n word during that time, and said to Matt Lauer in an interview, she has only used that word one time, in her life....it's recorded. Sigh.

There is more but, chew on that got a second. I'm not a racist, and I've used the n word more than that.

Eh, read "30 years" somewhere. Here's the transcript of the deposition, relevant testimony starts around page 20 or so. I kind of skimmed through it, so may have missed something, but at one point she specifically says she did not repeat the word in jokes. To me, she comes across as believable in her answers, but I wasn't there to hear tone of voice/expression, etc. LINK

Is there anyone...anyone...on this board that has never mentioned the N-Word? May he cast the first stone at her. She was honest and didn't run from it. That amounts to something.

Well, now you've heard one. I'm not as offended at Paula Dean's use of a racial epithet as I am offended at Paula Dean as a whole. First of all, I've heard comments where she asked a black employee (presumably dark skinned) to move from in front of a dark wall because he couldn't be seen. Colorism is a HUGE issue in the black community. Further, her contention that in the old south black people were "loved" is preposterous. Her parties with black employees serving as slaves is offensive, and if there is any merit in this law suit, she and her brother are guilty of a whole host of racist acts. Is she racist? I don't know. I do know that she's living in some ridiculous fantastical "GWTW" world that is idiotic. Is she a racist? I don't know. Ignorant revisionist of history? Probably.

Is this supposed to show racism?
