The Paula Deen Situation

Everyone knows that Paula Deen is now rich. You have to wonder if that’s the REAL reason for the lawsuit against her and her brother by a former employee, not racism. Ms. Deen is also 66 years old, long in tooth for television. SO, she was directly asked if she ever used the term “nigger,” and admitted that she had “a long time ago.” That is the excuse the Food Channel is using to ditch her. AND, I believe it IS only an excuse. Blacks need to grow up and live by the same standard that they put on whites, or shut the h_ll up. As long as terms like “honky”, “whitey” and “cracker” come from black lips, they have absolutely NO RIGHT to complain about “nigger!” Quote me if you wish, any self-righteous, hypocritical race-baiters that may read this! © 2013

You are right. Everyone I know is so sick of this nonsense, but as long at it keeps working, it will be used.

It'll quit working when the muslims take over, Cm!

Mamma Bear said...

GS...I wholeheartedly agree with you.

It never fails when traveling to town I get beside a car at a red light blasting the rap crap where they are calling each other niggers in their perverted so called songs.

I am from the deep south and my grandparents always said there were niggers and good black folks. There were no such names as African Americans. We had separate waiting rooms, separate water fountains, separate bathrooms, separate schools. I was in the 6th grade before I went to school with the first black person. With all the political correction going on, I wish we were still back in those days. We sure wouldn't have an Obama in the white house. I also wish the gays had stayed in the closet. The US is being destroyed by women libbers, niggers and gays. There, I said it! You can publish this or not...I will understand.

I'm still trying to figure out what the hell happened to this country. My elders in this little farming community used the term nigger in everyday conversation until very recently - some of them still do in private conversation. Now we have to say the "N-word" or a bunch of folks act like you just said sh*t in church.

The inmates are running the asylum!

You right Gorges, when the Muslims get control saying nigger ain't gonna be much of an issue.

Perhaps I have been fed the wrong story, but what I have been hearing (so to speak) from a number of different sources about the current Paula Deen situation is that there is a recording of her using the N-word quite recently, and not in a joking manner, either. Since I failed to find it, it may very well be that I have either misunderstood or have heard news reports that had the truth twisted out of context. Anyway, what I did find was disturbing enough. For owning someone as a slave is not the same as considering them as being a part of the family. There is much more in the other videos and the written commentary included. Please keep in mind that what I am trying to say is coming from someone who was raised in an area where the Civil War is still being fought in many respects and would "naturally" like to don a grey uniform if fighting officially broke out again. Woe be it unto me.

When kids ask me if I am a racist I say something to the effect that I am less racist than they are. Since I believe that everyone likes to be around people like themselves and many times cultural differences are rather extreme, at times that will look like racism when in reality is is just comfort.

I agree with CM. As long as it pays, it stays.

Grace and peace.

Gorges Smythe said...

I agree with you, Mh, and while perhaps you should have spoken more carefully, you are showing the backlash that is building in the minds of ALL thinking people. Too much political correctness is TOO MUCH!

Moe, I suspect your elders used the term much as some of my mine did - to refer to the black equivalent of white trash. Back then, "blacks" were "colored folks" and black trash were "niggers." I still tend to think thatb way myself, and I still use the term "white trash." No doubt, the liberals will call me judgmental, though THEY are far worse at that.

Prejudice is perfectly normal for EVERY human-being, Jerry, it's racism that's wrong. Liberal minds don't understand the difference. Thanks for the link.

You've hit on something there, Pumice. Usually, the first person to scream "racism" is the worst of the lot. And I think, Cm is right, too.

In the end for Paula, it's all about someone trying to get some of her money.
I too, am fed up to my ears with "Political Correctness."

Gorges Smythe said...

And age, Scooney; don't forget her age.
