Fails to see what she did wrong...

Jake Havechek: 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.


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

Is anyone really falling for this classic case of white woman's tears? I have no patience for this racist biatch.

I didn't like her much before and I find her hideously appalling now.

cig-mkr: 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

rewind2846: nmemkha: Sentry1407: 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.

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.


Oh Jesus. I think I'm going to faint. Someone on Fark who gets it.
My poor heart has waited so long for this moment.

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?
 
2013-06-26 11:51:26 PM  

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.

Hey, that's what I'm using if they keep insisting on that special snowflake People of Color shiat.

digitalrain: 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 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.

She has nothing to be sorry about. You people are pathetic.

That's a good point.  I hadn't thought of her.

Martha Stewart it is.

No no... let's let her keep going...
