Yes racist.

At least she didn't ask her to dress as Uncle Ben

Oh God dammit.  She's a farking white trash cracker from a white trash town that no one would bother to piss on.

Move on.  There's nothing new to see, just more of the same shiat.  I hope Bourdain mentions it tonight.

What, you thought she was just an incidental racist?  A social racist?  Only racist when she has a drink or two?
 
2013-07-25 05:17:38 PM
How much you want to bet she fantasizes about the black male waiters taking her upstairs after the party and re-enacting Mandingo?
 
2013-07-25 05:18:39 PM
to be fair, she was born in 1847.

i'm sorry; i'm being told that she was born in 1947. never mind.

There are racists who try not to let on about it in public. Especially around the objects of their racism.

When I read the complaint that led to all of this I kind of came to the conclusion that she and her family and business associates didn't even try to conceal their feelings.

I really wish I could remember the Farker who put it best in one of the first Paula Deen threads:

"She's fifty years old and was born and raised in Georgia.  How the hell can anyone think that she's NOT racist?"

/Props to you.  You know who you are.

Was she making pancakes? I could understand if she was making pancakes.

Yes, yes she was

Ms. Jones was also in charge of making hoecakes, the cornmeal pancakes served to every guest. Ms. Deen had designed a station so diners could watch them being made. At both jobs, Mrs. Charles and other employees said, Ms. Deen wanted Ms. Jones to dress in an old-style Aunt Jemima outfit.

Her being only fifty is the only surprising thing in that sentence.

Yeah.  I caught that right as I hit submit.  But you have to agree, fifty is really old.

Oh great, now we have to endure another round of totally not racist conservatives lining up to eat at her restaurant to show how "tired they are of political correctness".

In Deens defense, it's not like she could have worn blackface and done it herself. Now THAT would be racist!
 
2013-07-25 07:09:28 PM
I think she tried to hide it since her target demographic with her cooking were poor black people.

Paying the woman who tasted and cooked a vast majority of the recipes that made you famous, who has worked for you for decades, who worked on a cruise for you and who had to take *vacation time* for it (but expenses were covered!  go figure!) $10 an hour...

not sure if racist, but dickish, incredibly so.

MUCH LIKE NOT POSTING THE F--KING ORIGINAL SOURCE, SUBBY/FARK.

Are the pancakes good, I mean real good? Willing to overlook the other stuff if so.

Well butter does go on pancakes. Along with syrup.

OK, now, maybe this is just me, but doesn't the newer, non-Mammy  Aunt Jemima look like Fireman Bill after a particularly bad incident:

I mean, I get the negative implications of this image:

But quite honestly, I think the Mammy version is more attractive.  The new version is just farkin' disturbing.  I'd date the old Aunt Jemima, but I'd be too freaked out by the face of the new one.

Scientists should research what happens to the brain's executive function with aging a bit more.  Please describe how it is harder for the racists to keep their mouths shut when they get older.    I would have preferred them getting gentler and more accepting with regret about their bad old days of ignorance.  I can still wish.

I always find that combination hilarious, almost as good as when African Americans oppose equal rights for LGBTs and Latin Americans.

Honestly, I kind of hoped that she was the kind of racist that grew up bigoted until she realized that it was indeed bigotry, but was struggling to try to change herself. That person I can feel sorry for, because it's hard getting over something that one was taught from childhood however wrong it is.

Unfortunately she appears to be the kind of racist that makes her racism become other peoples' problems, rather than the kind that struggles to keep it to herself.

Even if true, which I seriously doubt, it's not racist to have a black person dress like a well known black character.
