    Like there’s anybody in America over 20 that hasn’t EVER used the N word. Mostly it’s blacks, but even whites have used it in a joke or repeating somebody else’s words.
    She never said she uses it regularly or yells the word at black people. She was asked under oath whether she has EVER said that word. She gave the honest answer:yes.
    And of course the liberal press turns her into a KKK member.
    Wow. So overblown.

    I must first find out what Snooki and Honey Boo Boo think before I can form an opinion.*

    Maybe it’s because you hang out with racists, ConserveGov. No one I talk with uses that word, with the exception of my racist father-in-law, may he rest in peace. It’s offensive, racist, and needlessly antagonistic, and has no place in intelligent conversation.

    Though, as Jessica Williams said on the Daily Show, Paula Deen’s words have hurt Black people less than her recipes have.

    Lets getting ONE thing straight: Corporations fire folks. Not Blacks.
    Ms. Deen was supposed to have made her remarks in 2002. Why wait 11 years? Her popularity (ratings) were slipping partly because she was espousing a diet that was unhealthy.

    @ARodney

    Hey Rodney, maybe you missed that word I deliberately capitalized: EVER.
    I don’t use that word or many other similarly racist words and I don’t know ANYBODY that does. It just shows ignorance, as does using street slang and vulgar language.
    BUT, are you honestly saying that you have never once in your life uttered that word?

    David, I have never even seen her show(?) or read her books and from what I hear I would not enjoy her food. I’d like to avoid a heart attack before I reach 50.
    As for hiring and firing folks, maybe I’m missing something, but I didn’t here that she discriminated against blacks.

    @ConserveGov

    Yes ConservGov, but you are apologizing for a bigot by definition.“but I didn’t here that she discriminated against blacks.” Her words fit the definition, and excusing her behavior is accepting the unacceptable attitude of bigotry.

    @ahab

    So by Your definition, 99% of Americans are bigots because they have said that word at some time in their life.
    Ok.

    Not sure if that answer was an option in her case, but if it was, then yes that would be the correct response.

    He probably thinks Kramer’s stand up routine is funny.

    Keep apologizing for them, it encourages the behavior, which you find acceptable.

    @ConserveGov

    No, I don’t accept your ignorant interpretation of what I said.

    He doesn’t seem to condemn bigoted speech.
