Default Poor Paula Deen

What is your take on this media crap? Is this a vendetta or some PR stunt?

I lean to the PR stunt view.

Her act was getting old.
She got caught - in the old days it wouldn't have mattered.
Convenient excuse. Political correctness.

Wife told me that she is being accused of selling porn. Not sure what kind or how. It is difficult for me picturing her in a training film.

I thought we were just talking about her racial slur and lame attempt to back-peddle.

Food porn. All that fat, butter, and calory-laden food.

While being a diabetic and knowing about it.
She deserved to get canned then. This was a convenient reason.

Maybe Wiener and Deen should be on the same ticket in next election.

Ooooh, that has comedic potential! At the very least it would keep the tabloids busy for a while and we could ignore the Kardashians.

The woman is a 66 year old white southern woman who, unfortunately acted like a 66 year old southern white woman (pardon the generality). Understandable given the era she grew up in but hardly excusable. I'm a little younger but I vividly remember the bombings of Black churches, the dogs, the marches, and the fire hoses. To me, thats what that word conjures up and it wasn't a shining moment in our history.

Many decades ago, when I was around 8 years old I was repeating a childs rhyme that included that word in front of my parents. I had no clue what it meant, just repeating the rhyme. My parents quickly (and loudly) informed me what it meant and told me in no uncertain terms I was never to use it ever again. I was shocked that someone would use it to reference a group of people - stuck with me to this day.

I was talking about this today with some friends and they reminded me of one of Richard Pryers records that used the word in the album title and as part of one of his dialogs. I guess goose-gander does not apply here.

Only if Paula Deen was a Black man when she said it, otherwise, why would goose/gander rule apply here? afaik, only white person who can get away with using that word is LouisCK.

I grew up in the southeastern part of this country and when I was a kid, everyone used the n word. It was short for Negro, which was not a derogatory word.

So why do the rappers get away with using it? Why do the movie elite get away with racial and gay slurs?

There is definitely a double standard in the US of A.

Of course there is a double standard.
When Paramount Pictures wanted to release Animal House they insisted that Richard Pryor give the OK first.

Keep Moving. Double standards are everywhere. Just don't say or do anything and you will be OK :(
