I would LOVE to hear peoples opinions on this. So I guess we no longer can have freedom of speech or express our opinions in our homes? Thoughts?
"She accused Deen of using the N word as recently as in 2007, while discussing an idea for a 'plantation'-style wedding."

Is it just me or are we focusing on the lesser thing here... a what style wedding??

Are you kidding me? It wasn't a personal conversation between her and someone else in her home, this was an idea she openly expressed, obviously around co-workers which is why an employee was the one who pressed charges.

Freedom of speech in your own home is your own business, but from the accounts I've read she made no qualms about openly using the N-word. Hell, the woman admitted that she used it.



And when asked if she wanted black men to play the role of slaves at a wedding she explained she got the idea from a restaurant her husband and her had dined at saying, “The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie.
“I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America … after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War…It was not only black men, it was black women … I would say they were slaves.


This sounds like a woman who is unabashedly, unapologetically racist and hides behind her Southern roots as the cause.

You Southern a-holes lost the war. Time to move on.

This after her whole "diabetes" scandal. I think the final nail in the coffin for Paula was her "apology" For something like this, you don't post an obviously edited, unlisted, private 45 second YouTube video and consider that an apology

Totally half assed apology. If she had come clean and been genuine about it people may have cut her some slack.

The n word of course is horrible in itself, but this type of thinking of just seeing a black waiter is just so disgusting and offensive she should never be on tv again. This type of thinking is why most young, open-minded southerners cant wait for the greatest generation and their children to die off. The thought of a that being a great idea is hurtful to my community, co workers and friends.

I agree with this 100%.

And D-Rave, I'm assuming your comment about Southern a-holes is directed at Paula Deen and other outspoken racists, not the South in general. In Chico's words:

Yeah. I've spent time in the south (hell, my entire family is Southern, I'm only the second generation not having been born and raised there) and it's a beautiful place with some wonderful people.

Then there are people like this...

Why "people" like this are even allowed to mingle with normal human beings is beyond me. The guy needs to shipped off to a different planet.

Ummm ... the Hispanics were there before the Europeans? Okay ... carefully reread that and see if you can spot the error. [Hint: What language do they speak on the Iberian Peninsula?]

If I need to be more clear then the dark skinned people were there before the light skinned, blonde haired blue eyed people.

You know what ethnicity blows my mind though? Brazlians. 1) Everyone there is gorgeous. 2) They're all fair skinned now.

Except my friend who has a darker skin tone but red hair. It's kinda strange.

If I'm correct what you posted as a quote from PD is what she was accussed of saying and its not known who is telling the truth.
