All I'm going to say is she didn't do herself any favors in her responses up to this point, and if she had PR people they should be ashamed.
 
2013-06-26 10:38:55 AM  
Too soon, Paula.  Get the forgiveness playbook out, go do some sensitivity rehab 30 day 12 step forgiveness thing, get your publicist to get that info out to all of the press outlets, give some money to charity, then in a few months, go as forgiveness on the major morning talk shows.

/meanwhile, Paula Deen cookware 50% off at the local bargain centers!

She keeps referring to the 1980's when she claims she was held up at gunpoint by a black man during a robbery.  I'm curious where the public records are for this?

Hey, I feel bad that she was robbed, and glad nothing happened to her.  But hey... just want to verify the story like any good amateur Farking journalist.

I think she might be delusional. She seems to really not understand that some people find her actions racist. It looks like she really thinks her only mistake is using the n word 30 years ago and not how she treated black people in the years since.

I don't know which is worse.  Her really bad interview, or the fact that so many people are ok with this hyper-PC society we live in.  One of the biggest lessons I'm taking away from all of this is that when asked if I ever uttered a racially derogatory term in my life, is that I should lie.

good to know the anti-pc crowd is out in force.

politically incorrect is referring to all people of south america as mexicans.  it's stupid, inaccurate, and really fails to recognize the political and cultural heritage of hundreds of millions of people.

this was beyond politically incorrect

she wanted a slave themed party.  that's like dressing up as nazis and forcing your servants to dress like jews in a concentration camp.  that's beyond ignorant or insensitive.  that's mean spirited.

Didn't matter where she grew up, it was a common word in the North and South. I was 33 when I moved from the north to south of the Mason-Dixon line, been south 35 years now. In the country down here it wasn't un-common to see black homes mixed in with whites, whereas the north kept the blacks mostly in one area.

I'm interested. At what point does it become unacceptable? What would she have to say and do for you to say 'not cool'? bearing in mind no one is suggesting she go to jail, she just doesn't get a comfy telly career anymore. And if she goes on TV shows and says 'poor me', the public get to say, 'not so much'.

[W]hen 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."

Mel Brooks is a genius, and Blazing Saddles is one of the funniest movies, ever, but the point of the whole exercise is lost on clowns like him.

Not to mince points, but I'm half American Indian, and the scene where Brooks is overdone with the war paint and costume and speaking Yiddish is farking hilarious.

I'm interested. At what point does it become unacceptable? What would she have to say and do for you to say 'not cool'?


There's not a single damn thing she might say that would make me freak out.

/my ignore list is still empty
//naturally, this makes me worse than Hitler, or so I'm told
///there are things she might do that would make me gun her down immediately, but none of those things involve just talking

Am I missing something? She was held at gunpoint and referred to her aggressor with the N-word... 30 years ago. Still tasteless, but not sure how I'd react under the circumstances. I also know she planned a "plantation party" with "slave" wait staff. This is also mortifying. It reminds me of my grandmother who refers to my same-sex black boyfriend as my "special colored friend". It is offensive, and we correct her, but it is not done in malice. Yes, there is a big difference between that and reenacting pre civil war plantations, but I think both come from a place of genuine, and long standing ignorance. I feel the solution here is education not aggression.

So does "I misspoke" come before or after "I have sinned" , I can't remember.

Be as rude as you wish. Say whatever you wish.  Just stop whining about how persecuted you are when people react to your being a rude and obnoxious troll or tedious human being.

It's a pretty simple concept that most Kindergarteners can grasp.

Why people here are having trouble understanding things a five year old can is really strange.

You are reading far too much into my choice of analogies.  I chose murderers because they were extreme examples of the point I was trying to make, but examples nonetheless.

I am not "associating her with murderers", I am using murderers in an example of a similar trait of human nature.

Calm the fark down.

WAAAH DONT CALL ME ON MY BULLshiat OPINIONS


That doesn't even make sense.

Look, pal, it's obvious you want an argument, not a discussion or a sharing of opinions.

''I is what I is and I'm not changing,'' she said. ''There's someone evil out there that saw what I worked for and wanted it.''

An uncomfortable Lauer tried to end the interview, but Deen repeated that anyone who hasn't sinned should attack her.


I can only imagine Lauer's discomfort.  Jesus, that must have been awkward.

Retire quietly, Paula.  Your friends know the truth about you, so you say - so retire and spend the rest of your days talking about how you were railroaded.  Your restaurant will still be successful.  You'll be popular in Georgia, and probably will make even more money than before, if you play your cards right.  So, yeah.  Give it up.

Anyone who uses the term "colored", and does not know why it is wrong is an example.

They grew up in the 1950s, and for some reason, their mentality remained in that era.

Also, Jodi Arias wouldn't have convicted herself.  O.J. Simpson wouldn't have voted for his own indictment if he'd been on the grand jury.

And Murderin' Mike Mahoney wouldn't have thrown the switch on Old Sparky and executed himself, neither.

Seriously? She didn't kill anyone.

You missed the point.  What I'm trying to say is, of course she wouldn't have fired herself.  Nobody allowed to weigh their own fate ever decides to do the just thing.

Right but associating her with murderers is totally cool because she's a racist.

She clearly contradicted herself more than once after Matt asked her is she used the word more than one time; to which she replied no. Then he asked if she lied under oath when she was quoted saying that "of course she had used it more than one time". She replied "i was honest in my testimony" then went on and on about her grandson staying up past his bedtime.

My sister and I call each other all kinds of vulgar female terms in jest. No word is evil across the board. Think about the sheer stupidity of that idea.

Paula is all about the money, which is why the vast majority of people do their jobs anyway.  She has worked very hard, and gone through alot, to get to the point that she won the farking lottery, professionally speaking.  When Food Network picked her up, her life changed.  She's tied alot of who she is into this celebrity persona she's created, and of course the money.  It's a lethal combination - if she loses popularity or income, her whole world probably seems like it's coming undone.

That said, I have no sympathy.  Live by the TV, die by the TV.  I agree with Food Network - it's not about what she said 30 years ago, it's about what she's saying now.  And her "apologies" are not only more racist than the original comment, but they also ring hollow once she starts running her mouth.

The plaintiff worked for Paula's brother Bubba for five years, putting up with lower pay than men junior to her were getting, and being bombarded by sexist and racist comments by Bubba, along with physical advances (allegedly). What words Paula used have almost nothing to do with the lawsuit.

Boy, that $1.25 million settlement offer they sent her before they filed the complaint must seem like a bargain now.

Nothing like using an old lady from the south as a punching bag to drive home political correctness.

this.

I'm interested. At what point does it become unacceptable? What would she have to say and do for you to say 'not cool'? bearing in mind no one is suggesting she go to jail, she just doesn't get a comfy telly career anymore. And if she goes on TV shows and says 'poor me', the public get to say, 'not so much'.


It becomes unacceptable when the people being persecuted say it's enough. And that's for any race or region, I remember when the Polish were the brunt of jokes, blondes there for awhile too. This old southern woman is a product of her times and environment.
 
2013-06-26 12:48:10 PM  
What amazes me is that people keep saying she is an old lady raised in the south, and times were different.  she was in her 30s then, so it was not like she was sitting on the porch with the vapors, sipping on juleps, and waiting on crops to be brought in.

  I am 43, grew up in New Orleans, and 30 years ago, was not that long ago...  Well past the time of the civil rights marches, and we did not run around saying the n word willy nilly.  Dean was not born in the 30s.

She has a proven history of racism.

Yeah, it is THIS to me, not the use of the "n word" 30 years ago. It's her attitude towards blacks in general that indicates she's what we in the South call a "closet racist". You only see their true attitudes toward other people if you are family or a close personal friend; otherwise, why they are just the NICEST people.

[W]hen 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."

So she really wasn't the first to think of that.

cig-mkr: Lady J: please: cig-mkr: Has anyone among us been totally PC from the day you were born ?
Nothing like using an old lady from the south as a punching bag to drive home political correctness.

this.

I'm interested. At what point does it become unacceptable? What would she have to say and do for you to say 'not cool'? bearing in mind no one is suggesting she go to jail, she just doesn't get a comfy telly career anymore. And if she goes on TV shows and says 'poor me', the public get to say, 'not so much'.

It becomes unacceptable when the people being persecuted say it's enough. And that's for any race or region, I remember when the Polish were the brunt of jokes, blondes there for awhile too. This old southern woman is a product of her times and environment.


Noshe isnt she was in her teens during the civil rights movement, she grew up with segregation being removed, and people being placed on equal footing.

My mother is the same age, grew up in south Louisiana, and  she certainly does not talk like that...

Paula Dean is white trash.

And who the hell thinks that dressing up black people in a slave themed wedding would be a good idea? And if you did, why the HELL would you tell anyone who worked for you that, knowing that statements like that can will bite you in the ass?

Secondly, on this WHOLE issue of "wah wah wah, why can black people say the n-word and we can't", two things for you: Okay, I'm a black guy myself, and do you think I go into work blurting out "Wassup my nubianz" to my "fellow" black people on the job? My ass would be getting wrote up at the least or FIRED for being unprofessional. shiat, FARK acts like all of black America is at some rap studio 24-7 talking about "making money, killing nubians, etc." Secondly, let me call your wives by the name of "cutie pie", "sweet tits", or any other pet name she has? Oh, you don't like that? Well, if you call her "sweet tits", why can't I? Why can't your boss or any other stranger do it? Exactly. Lastly, just why in the HELL do you all want to emulate the rappers of the world? I thought all rappers were thugs and crackheads with 8 babymommas and 12 arrests. You mean, you WANT to sound illiterate, thuggish, and ghetto? In other words, if you want to say the "n-word", you are acting like a n-word!

I'm not "PC" either, but I've found out that people who complain about "political correctness" are the most sensitive whiners around that you when you knock their sacred cows (here in GA, it's making fun of country music, the Confederate flag, talking shiat about rednecks) they'll start sobbing about "disrespectin' mah heritage", and I suspect PD is similar is this regard.

deanis: If this word is so evil, then it should be evil across the board, or we can all agree that this is a big ass retarded farking waste of time and be done with it.

People who use this as their argument want to use the word in order to not feel like a racist/bigot when they are using it.


so you are ok with say chris rock n-wording for half his show but if i were to say he's acting like a n-word that would be wrong. gotcha. the word is derogatory and some rapper trying to be cool with his bros is disrespecting them as well he should. the characteristics that are currently associated with the n-word are not values that society should accept.
 
2013-06-26 01:20:06 PM  
Yeah, it is THIS to me, not the use of the "n word" 30 years ago. It's her attitude towards blacks in general that indicates she's what we in the South call a "closet racist". You only see their true attitudes toward other people if you are family or a close personal friend; otherwise, why they are just the NICEST people.

Unlike the fine example of Paula Deen, I prefer women who tend to be ethnocentric, but smart enough to suppress their own bigotry or racism. Most everyone is biased about everyone else anyway - so all of this is pretty much a circus to me. A big fat lot of jerks trying to malign some stupid, tacky person to only make themselves look better - and for what? isn't that action just as bad as racism? To pretend to not notice race? As if the world got lucky catching some fat old diabetic in some meaningless behavior that stopped mattering when MLK Jr got assassinated. (followed by RFK, and Malcolm X). There are no good leaders willing to take up the cause of racism anymore. There are a bunch of poseurs doing nothing but whining about it, and being laughably hyperbolic. Now that the SCotUS has declared racism over, I look forward to seeing a new generation of strong men and women who will fight racism in a way that matters. I want it to be unification in a cause, not some bullshiat symbolic termination of some fat lady's job. Who cares about Paula Deen?

That's fine as long as the uneducated talk isn't Ebonicized. Then you are riding a seriously thin wire there. Everyone makes racial jokes. EVERYONE. But it doesn't take much for them to cross the line and not be funny unless you are seriously racist. And in no circumstance should one feel free to tell said jokes willy nilly. Or at all. For me, if I want to laugh at black people, I will watch Chris Rock make fun of folks. If it was Larry the Cable Guy saying the same jokes, they would be not funny and seriously offensive.

Anyone who uses the term "colored", and does not know why it is wrong is an example.

They grew up in the 1950s, and for some reason, their mentality remained in that era.

This is wrong?

Should we not do this?

I still call my favorite Girl Scout cookies "Savannahs".  What kind of weener name is "Do See Dohs"?  WTH was wrong with "Savannahs"?!?


Considering that some people want to go out and march and burn things after hearing the name may have something to do with it.

And who the hell thinks that dressing up black people in a slave themed wedding would be a good idea? And if you did, why the HELL would you tell anyone who worked for you that, knowing that statements like that can will bite you in the ass?

Secondly, on this WHOLE issue of "wah wah wah, why can black people say the n-word and we can't", two things for you: Okay, I'm a black guy myself, and do you think I go into work blurting out "Wassup my nubianz" to my "fellow" black people on the job? My ass would be getting wrote up at the least or FIRED for being unprofessional. shiat, FARK acts like all of black America is at some rap studio 24-7 talking about "making money, killing nubians, etc." Secondly, let me call your wives by the name of "cutie pie", "sweet tits", or any other pet name she has? Oh, you don't like that? Well, if you call her "sweet tits", why can't I? Why can't your boss or any other stranger do it? Exactly. Lastly, just why in the HELL do you all want to emulate the rappers of the world? I thought all rappers were thugs and crackheads with 8 babymommas and 12 arrests. You mean, you WANT to sound illiterate, thuggish, and ghetto? In other words, if you want to say the "n-word", you are acting like a n-word!

I'm not "PC" either, but I've found out that people who complain about "political correctness" are the most sensitive whiners around that you when you knock their sacred cows (here in GA, it's making fun of country music, the Confederate flag, talking shiat about rednecks) they'll start sobbing about "disrespectin' mah heritage", and I suspect PD is similar is this regard.

Not trolling, but curious: Do you use the "nig" word yourself, and I mean like if you get cut off in traffic by a black person, or if you're pissed at bad customer service, etc.? Just a question -- I'm mixed (white and Middle Eastern) and don't use "nig"-word, but I might call someone a shiathead, dumbass, stupid farking fat fark, when in a similar situation.

I'm *NOT* saying I'm better (or worse), just curious if you throw that in as a diss against a fellow black person?


I definitely did when I was younger, yes. Nowadays, if a fellow brother wronged me, I'm prone to say "Negro, WTF?" as in the actual word "Negro". I don't criticize people for words, per se, more so the actions that follow them.

But as I said before, I don't care what you say to someone in private, the problem with the Deen's of the world is that they CAN'T distinguish the private from the public. It's subconscious, if you go around saying n----r, n----r, to your friends and family, 99% of the time, you'll be treating your black subordinates like n----rs. Why? Because if you got contempt for them in general in your private life, when you encounter a black person when you need something done, the inner racist in you eventually will come out.

Yeah, it's been a definitive change over the years with regards to use of the word - even 30 years ago you wouldn't hear it in polite company, but someone was always around with a joke.  I'd say it's been within the past 15 years that its use got retired completely - that any use of the word was looked down with scorn if the person using it wasn't black.  If saying n****** once 30 years ago was her only problem, then she wouldn't have a problem.  She could say she used it, she grew up in a different era, and she's had to learn that society is different now but it's something she fights with every day.

Instead, she gives off the distinct impression that she stopped using the word years ago, but never stopped thinking it, and that has prevented her from seeing black people as anything but props to fulfill some magical play that runs around in the back of her head.  That she's still the kind of person who would look at a dinner party and say "You know what's missing?  Negroes!"

Sister Mary Farker: Anyone who thinks Paula Deen is the subject of a witch hunt for being un-PC needs to read the actual complaint. It's horrific. I was inclined to try to understand her till I read it.  Also I'm cheesed off that folks think all white women of a certain age and region think or act like her or that it's understandable if they are like her.  She doesn't get to own Southern food, either. I and my relatives need no help from her to cook a lot better than she does and more healthfully (if we feel like it that day).

Here's the complaint. Go read it and see if you think you can defend her after that. So far none of it is contradicted by anything Ms. Deen has said in her deposition. The wedding in question that was being planned was her brother's, btw.

I have to go make some jambalaya now.


I agree, I went and read the entire complaint when it was linked previously.  Brother Bubba really needs an ass whoopin.  Lots and lots of bad things have happened, the n word ain't nearly the big issue here.

That being said, I don't feel bad for her, but I am not out to get her either.  Conducting yourself in an appropriate manner when you make your living in the public spotlight to some degree is the cost of making the grade.  She got called out on something she did a while ago.  Not so bad.  Trying to defend it, very bad.  As others have noted, she should have let the PR staff handle it, laid low, issued an apology, donated some money somewhere, etc etc. and it probably would not have reached this level.

But I don't think she's going to wonder where her next meal is coming from.  She'll be just fine.

''I've had to hold friends in my arms while they've sobbed because they know what's been said about me is not true and I'm having to comfort them,'' she said

Guize, don't forget that her friends are suffering too.


Then I assume none of them work for her or her family.

I've never seen 5 seconds of her on television. Not going to start now.

firsttiger: I don't buy sorry, but I do buy "Sorry I got caught."


Got caught? Got caught doing what? It's not like she lied or tried to hide it. She was asked if she ever said it and she did the
unforgivable - she told the TRUTH.

I'm not saying what she did was right, but all things considered, it is understandably WHY she fell back on that particular term
when describing the event to her husband. A man threatened her life. He scared the shiat out of her, probably pissed her off
after the fact and made her feel extremely vulnerable. The depth of her fear and anger toward this man for what he did must
have been extreme, so is it any surprise that when she - a woman raised in the south during a time when such epithets were
as thick on the ground as rocks at a quarry - would fall back to the most extreme, derogatory term she could think of when
relating the story to her husband?

I'm a person who can't even say p*ssy without blushing. I've only said the "c-word" once that was because the person to whom
I was applying the word had been so awful, so low-down, that when relating to my husband what she had done, it was the word
that sprang to  mind to convey the virulence of my feelings for her.

Was it a good word to use? No. Am I proud that I said it? No. But *why* I reflexively reached for that word is understandable,
given the context of the situation.

I'm under the impression she got fired for stuff she said recently. Am I wrong?

gunga galunga: Meh. I've already had my fill of Paula Deen tears. Today, I will savor Republican tears over the Supreme Court striking down DOMA.


The only tears *this* Republican is shedding today are tears of joy. I am *so* glad SCOTUS ruled the way it did today.

Live and let live, folks. Love and let love.

deanis: fat_free: Diogenes: Jake Havechek: It's not like she called Al Roker "Coltrane" when she ran into him in the hall.

That's racist!  See, you libby libs are just as bad!

I honestly think that's the larger problem.  People don't see the difference between Paula Deen and Mel Brooks.  (See fat_free above)

Actually, I think you miss my point.  We have a WORD that has been used by Jesse Jackson, Richard Nixon, Jamie Foxx, Young Jeezy, Elvis Costello, Mel Brooks, Eddie Murphy, and THOUSANDS of people.  Yet now we have a list of people that CAN say this WORD, and others who CAN'T.

So who sets the standards as to "S/he has an acceptable use of the 'nig' word" and "ZOMG THAT IS SO SHOCKING YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!!"

If this word is so evil, then it should be evil across the board, or we can all agree that this is a big ass retarded farking waste of time and be done with it.

People who use this as their argument want to use the word in order to not feel like a racist/bigot when they are using it.


Who says fat_free wants to use the n-word? I didn't hear him / her say that. What I heard was "Why is it OK for one segment of the population
to use a particular word but not the other?"

Either it is OK for everyone to use it or NOBODY can use it.

I'd be happy with nobody because it is an awful word, but I'm also not going to tell someone what they can and cannot say.

Smelly Pirate Hooker: As amusing as all this has been, I don't really give a shiat what Paula Deen thinks about anybody. The people I'd like to see crying are our worthless-ass politicians (except for Boehner, because who hasn't seen him cry?).


Not sure I want to see a weeping Boehner. Sounds like a health problem that needs penicillin... STAT!
 
2013-06-26 06:36:22 PM  
 I always hear this line about "them being able to say it, but not us."
When I actually feel like pointing it out I try to explain that A) you're allowed to say it all you want, but people are also allowed to make social calculations based on your use of said word and B) you don't have large numbers of black  people bemoaning how unfair it is that it's socially unacceptable for them  to say cracker or honkey white devil in polite company. Also it's not like all she did was was accidentally dropped a few N-bombs while  quoting Eazy-E. It all kinda had that whole "bring  back that good ol' days *wink* *wink*" Neoconfederate vibe to it.

I'm okay with this.
Really, I am.
She's a relic of this country's past, and the sooner those like her die off the better.
It's a damn shame that people like her want to bring that past into the present.

Its not PC, its common human decency.

Something you apparently know little about.


"Political Correctness" is a phrase used by some white men (the only people I know who use it) as code for "You mean I can't get away with being an asshole anymore? I have to think first before I talk? I have to be considerate of others? WAAAHHHH!!!"

Of course most of the rest of us can go through our lives perfectly fine without offending people of different ethnic groups, religions, sexual orientations, and so on. Common human decency. To us they're just people... but to these dimwits they're labels, usually offensive ones, and their simple minds just can't grasp any other concept.

glassbottomboatcaptain:

IMO if you are a mentally competent, emotionally stable adult, it should not be possible for you to be injured by the words of another person.  People who become so offended by the ignorant utterances of other people are the most pathetic, weak people in the world, and should count themselves lucky they've managed to escape the wrath of Darwin by being born into the world during one of it's rare coddling moods.  If this were any other era you'd have been drowned in a bathtub by your parents.


What's it like not to have feelings?

They grew up in the 1950s, and for some reason, their mentality remained in that era.


Well, to be  fair, they didn't even have colored TV sets in the 1950's.

you've never said or done anything racist? really, never?

she was asked if she had said n***er and she replied: "of course". she grew up in and lived in a time and place where that was acceptable. so what. bad on her but ok for some rapper to pepper his misogynistic song with it? horseshiat. it's a derogatory term but all this OMG SHE SAID THE N-WORD crap is the height of pathetic PC bullshiat.

Didn't matter where she grew up, it was a common word in the North and South. I was 33 when I moved from the north to south of the Mason-Dixon line, been south 35 years now. In the country down here it wasn't un-common to see black homes mixed in with whites, whereas the north kept the blacks mostly

airsupport: DubtodaIll: airsupport: "I wouldn't have fired me."


Also, Jodi Arias wouldn't have convicted herself.  O.J. Simpson wouldn't have voted for his own indictment if he'd been on the grand jury.

And Murderin' Mike Mahoney wouldn't have thrown the switch on Old Sparky and executed himself, neither.

Seriously? She didn't kill anyone.

You missed the point.  What I'm trying to say is, of course she wouldn't have fired herself.  Nobody allowed to weigh their own fate ever decides to do the just thing.


Then maybe you could have gone with "Martha Stewart wouldn't have sent herself to jail for insider trading." More relevant (loss of spokesperson contracts and her television deals), and less comparison of inappropriate behavior with criminal activity. Being an ass isn't a crime--if it was, pretty much all of us here on Fark would be in jail, myself included.

OK, I have to ask:  what are "white woman's tears?"  Is that a thing?

BunkyBrewman: She keeps referring to the 1980's when she claims she was held up at gunpoint by a black man during a robbery.  I'm curious where the public records are for this?

Hey, I feel bad that she was robbed, and glad nothing happened to her.  But hey... just want to verify the story like any good amateur Farking journalist.


One would assume if this was stated in a deposition it is easily checked out by those who need to know.

Leave the poor woman alone. I used to work for a chef who looked and acted like a rabid Bigfoot who managed to scare off at least two waitresses a week. Next to him, Paula Deen looks like Tinkerbell.

What I find most strange is that the supermarket tabloids are still making up crap about Kanye and Kim, and are barely touching this.

Then again, those rags are produced by such human garbage that I guess I shouldn't be surprised if they are racially motivated in their reporting.

I stick by the wording I used. This isn't just about some invective slipping in a moment of crisis, this is a woman who only decided against a plantation-themed wedding because if found out "the press would be on me about that." This implies the only thing stopping her from having done that is worry about what it would do to her reputation, not that it would be offensive.

I say it again. She's not sorry but she's sorry that her behaviour resulted in losing lucrative contracts because people are offended. That's not contrite or sincere.
