I was asked today what I feel about this "controversy" surrounding Paula Deen.
I replied that I could give a shit about her and her "controversy". I replied that this did not surprise me at all. I did not support her before her little "slip" of the tongue and I don't plan on supporting her now. I don't see how anybody would. This woman has made millions selling "comfort" food....IE... food with high calories, high cholesterol levels, high sugar content and everything else that is killing off Americans by the thousands every year..especially Black and poor Americans. And she has admitted to having type 2 diabetes her damn self...probably from eating her own shit; So no.. I have never supported her.
It just surprises me that people are surprised by her choice of words when she didn't think the cameras were rolling. She is an OLD.... SOUTHERN..... WHITE..... Woman. She grew up around people that threw the word Nigger around like a Frisbee. That's what she knows. That's who she is. That's what the people that are in her circle do. So what did people expect? Is she a racist? I don't know. But it damn sho looks like that any person that looks like me would not get invited to Thanksgiving at her house unless I was doing the serving, the coat checking or if I was parking her real invited
But it is her American right to call a nigger a nigger if she wants to. She is protected by the sacred constitution to do so. The constitution does not say that freedom of speech only applies if what you say does not offend anyone. So let her put her foot in her mouth. It is her God giving right. Now having said that..I have to say this...
That is our right as Americans. We don't need to march and protest and hold Internet polls.
Just... don't... support... her.
Hit her in her pocket. That is the only thing rich people understand. Money.
