Old, racist bag shows up in Texas to the thunderous applause of other old, racist bags.

This is like Anthony Weiner showing up to a sexting convention to a standing ovation.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Old, racist bag shows up in Texas to the thunderous applause of other old, racist bags.

This is like Anthony Weiner showing up to a sexting convention to a standing ovation.


FTFA: The one place I wanted to make my first step out was in Texas.

Because if there's any group that will applaud you from being a racist bag, it's Texas.

There always was something about her goofy-assed face that bugged me - I don't know if it's the eyes being windows or whatnot, but when she went down in flames I could not give one f*ck that day.

Her demise makes way for Ree Drummond to have her show, so those folks will still get their rednecky butter dosage.

Stop crying, you old bag.  You said/did stupid, ignorant shiat, you got called to the carpet for it, and now you're dealing with the repercussions of that.  That's how life works.

Paula Deen's recipe for racism...

10' of rope
15 sticks of butter
1 N-bomb (I refuse to type it).

Every black person I've heard talk about this says they don't give a shiat.
I asked a coworker. He doesn't give a shiat.
Most of you on here didn't like her or watch her show. 

An old white woman from the south has racist points of view and dropped the N-bomb 30 years ago. 
This is white people yelling about how awful it is to feel better about themselves. Meanwhile black people are not surprised and don't care.

sigdiamond2000: She's really never been the same since she got hit in the face with that flying ham.


I love that video.  Especially at the end where her husband is just standing there with his usual expression of uncomprehending boredom while someone hands him a ham.

It's cute that you think that this is about something she said thirty years ago and not a court case involving policies in place at her restaurants and her treatment of her employees.

You sound infromed.

I never watched her show(s), but I couldn't care less what she said 30 years ago....it doesn't affect me in the slightest.  I just find it incredibly amusing that she's so hurt and distraught by people not liking her for the things she said 30 years ago.

Didn't her brother run the restaurant? Wasn't he the person who was alleged to have been responsible for most of the employee treatment issues?

Pointing out cardiomegaly in Texans, is that a compliment?

Again, a 60+ year old white woman from the south that used the N word?  Color me surprised.

Yeah, you sound like just exactly the sort of cracker black folks really like to open up to and share their feelings with - and I'm sure "all your black friends" do.
Christ, what an asshole.

Well, the other funny thing is that her scandal led to Smithfield Foods to get sold to the Chinese.

That's right. A foreign power controls America's bacon supply kos Paula went too Southern. Joke's on you, hipsters!

I thought the Diabetes ruse where she announced her diagnosis and her new endorsement showed her true colors more.

Everyone generalizes this as her just dropping the N bomb, but that doesn't do her justice.

She's a horrible person wherein the "N word" was really the least harmful thing she's done. But it's easier just to focus and dismiss that.

I seriously doubt that most black folks care, or even more than passingly know who she is. She's an old white lady marketing herself to old white ladies.

However, she did a lot more than "drop the n bomb 30 years ago", and I suspect you know that.

I'm glad that's resolved.

Did your "black friend" tell you all this?

What I thought was most damning was that video of her getting all weepy over describing how her plantation-owning great-grandfather killed himself because his son died in the Civil War and how he "lost all his workers" when the war was over.

Now of course losing a son is a terrible thing, but how many fathers didn't lose a son during the Civil War. That's what happens when you have wars. Fathers lose sons. Paula Deen's loss was no greater than any other father's.

But Ms Deen (because I'm sure you're reading this) your great-grandfather didn't "lose all his workers". His slaves were freed. You know, the people he got to own as property and had to work for him for nothing? They didn't have to do that any more. That was a good thing. You're great-grandfather's slaves, all thirty-five of them, were no longer slaves.

That your great-grandfather took his own life because he couldn't handle the thought of paying people to work on his plantation, or god forbid,do the work himself wasn't the tragedy. It was that thirty-five people were imprisoned by him in the first place, and the laws at the time made it perfectly legit. That should have been the source of your lamentation. That your ancestor was a slave owner. Not that he offed himself because those awful Yankees took his toys away.

When she excused her bullsh*t by saying, "I is what I is", I wanted to slap the butter out of her pores. It's bad enough that she tried to hand-wave her racist behaviour with some glib variation of "It is what is it is", but to do it while putting on that stupid "ignorant redneck" affectation was just f*cking insulting. For god's sake, Paula - you're a grown woman who runs several businesses, not Honey Goddamn Boo Boo.

I live in the South. Tennessee, to be exact. Being from the South, for me, at least, the stereotype of racist hicks actually rung true. I figured out on my own when I was a little kid that such a thing didn't make the least bit of sense to me. I grew to really really dislike racism. It was such a strong effect on me that I don't even use the word "hate" flippantly or without merit. Struck it from my vocabulary. My mother's side of the family was predominately Cherokee, and I'm even the direct ancestor of a Cherokee Chief. The black kids in school always liked me a lot, and I was always more at ease with them than anyone else. My only real friend in high school was black.

With all of that as pretext I honestly don't believe Paula Deen is  a hardcore racist by any means. I believe she is just a product of her environment, and naive in the sense she did not really believe, or was aware at all, that she was being racist. People make mistakes.Some bigger than others. Everyone deserves a second chance, and people do have the ability to change for the better.

/yes, this one has read all accounts of said racism
//still has faith in people
