I wasn't raised to be a racist and I was raised on shows like Little House on the Prairie and The Waltons where tolerance was taught pretty strongly. My parents were extremely fair minded people and no person was greater than the next to them. Paula Deen is from the South and I am from the North. I think the culture is extremely different. I know up here, Native Americans get a raw deal. I don't think she should be held responsible for mistakes she made when she was young. We all learn and evolve as we get older. She needs a break and at least she was honest.

It's not what she said, it's what she did. Saying racial epithets is one thing. Discriminating your employees based on color or gender is another and that's illegal. She had to go.
Imagine what they say about a black president...oh that's right they stop short of calling him the "n" word in public but we know better.

I know what you mean, kenzgirl62, as this AF man I know from Arkansas said the same thing....American Indians are NOT given as much grief as they are here, but down there, the blacks are. Different regions, different cultures, different views!

Listening to a panel of Conservative Black Americans, such as Dr. Ben Carson, they feel they are treated worse by the Liberals. Due to the fact, they have switched from being a liberal to a conservative.

Ben Carlson has extreme beliefs that fit the mold of the Republican party. If he thinks he will get better treatment from the tea party, the ******* gun fringe, and the old hat racists of the Republican party, he needs more mental health help than anyone else.

Missy, great posts.
Is this poll about Dr. Carlson? I didn't think so.
I took time to read the lawsuit. If the allegations are true, then I say she deserves to be ostracized. It goes beyond the "N" word. The lawsuit is really against Bubba; however, as the head of the INC. that is the "Deen" family she was very aware of what was going on with the sexism, sexual harassment, physical harassment and racial discrimination (e.g., separate bathrooms and entrances for Blacks)lighter skinned Blacks up front darker skinned Blacks in back etc. and did NOTHING, even though it was escalated to her several times. Her attitude was akin to "boys will be boys". Turning a blind eye in my view is an admission of guilt.
Oh yeah, it was a script from "The Help"
Personally, the evidence is overwhelming to anyone who knows how to read!

Here's the local take on the lawsuit. Interesting read. Perhaps not quite "the rest of the story" but getting a little nearer.

Why is she apologizing if she did nothing wrong.
She knows, just like everyone else knows, you don't get to say the "N" word with no consequence.
Say what you want and do what you want, but don't get upset and angry when you are checked on it.

There are none so blind as the right wing hypocrites who saw nothing from 2000 to 2008 but their eyes sure opened when the Black man put his hand on the Bible.

How many times has Duncey remained silent when donnamay, hope4dusty, animal, missy1, minreader etc, etc, etc, crossed the racism line?

Oh good lord, the help, really? How about the big fat White guy thought it was okay to touch people, young white females, in North Dakota schools? Talk about people turning a blind eye. And reporting it. Yea they sure would not want to start that, then they character slam you. You liberals are doing a great job there. Be Proud. Paula Dean? North Dakota teachers. Blind eye, blind eye. Only when it works in your favor. By the way, the white guys were quietly removed. Something like the White House.

Willgarr, how many times have you been silent, when a teacher does this to white young girl's? In North Dakota. Oh yea, that's right. It's a teachers UNION. Other than that, I just listened to a Black American's Opinion and actually it was a Panel of Black American's, Conservatives. It wasn't your opinion, so attack away.
I am also sure, people see $$$$$$$, therefore, law suit, law suit. Big easy MONEY. BillGarr, You would jump on that wagon.
I can assure you Missy1, I have never been involved in any litigation. Swing and a miss.
Perhaps willgrr just approves of this litigation, even if he's not directly involved in it.
"I took time to read the lawsuit. If the allegations are true, then I say she deserves to be ostracized."
"Personally, the evidence is overwhelming to anyone who knows how to read!"
"Why is she apologizing if she did nothing wrong."
"She knows, just like everyone else knows, you don't get to say the "N" word with no consequence."
"Say what you want and do what you want, but don't get upset and angry when you are checked on it."
Here's a quote from the local story (onlineathens)...
"Court documents reveal tensions have erupted among the lawyers in the case as well. Both sides have repeatedly asked a judge to impose sanctions on opposing counsel and other parties during the discovery process.
"In the motion to dismiss (Atlanta attorney Matthew) Billips, (Bubba Hiers' attorney, Tom) Withers quoted a tweet by Billips in which he said 'suing Paula Deen is a hoot.' Withers also referred to a sexually laced tweet Billips directed at Deen 'even more concerning.'"
Loco, Duncey want you to use your real name. Are you a coward?
