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.


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

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.

Jake Havechek: A lot of old people are still like this.

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.


Does supporting NAACP count?

Curious: LlamaGirl: Maybe next time try not being a racist old coont, mmmkay?

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 in one area.

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'.

Never mind the fact that she thought it would be a fun and fantastic idea to have a slave party where all the blacks dress in fancy white suits to serve the white people.

''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.''

So she thinks she's an innocent victim.  That's all I need to know about her "apology".

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

At this point she should just lay low for a bit. She was right in the fact that we have all said dumb stuff, but 99.99% dont have our stuff broadcasted all over. Just here on fark. I can only imagine the stuff that would come out about me if I was ever in the public eye.

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.

Political correctness...  Or, you know, what most sane, educated people call "manners."

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.

[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.

Is there such thing as "Outrage Fatigue Syndrome"? I'm willing to collect money for it - well, not really. I might wear a button or sumpin'.
 
2013-06-26 11:40:05 AM
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.

Dumb biatch hasn't learned a THING about what happens when "celebrities" show their true racist/homophobe/lying-ass motherfarker-colors: Your meal ticket (eventually) goes bye-bye. She doesn't have to look very far for examples either.

So yeah, keep "apologizing", Paula. You may still have your fans, but your main source of $$$ is all but gone, I can promise you!
