If the summary in the link I posted is accurate then Deen using the N-word "20 years ago" isn't even included in the formal complaint, so I don't know that that's coming from anyone but Deen herself.

Quote:
Paula Deen, while planning her brother's wedding in 2007, was asked what look the wedding should have. She replied, "I want a true southern plantation-style wedding." When asked what type of uniforms the servers should wear, Paula stated, "well what I would really like is a bunch of little n*ggers to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around;

Black staff had to use the back entrance to enter and leave restaurant;

Black staff could only use one bathroom;

Black staff couldn’t work the front of the restaurants;


There were also allegations of incidents with other family members.

I haven't cross-checked (10 hours of lectures Friday and 13 yesterday, I'm tired) so I don't know with 100% certainty if that summary is correct. Even if it is it's just allegations and not proof that she did or didn't do any of the things alleged. I just think it's important to get on the same page with exactly what it is that we're discussing here.

What you call "special interest groups" the rest of us call the "overwhelming public opinion".


From what I have seen public opinion is actually supporting her. So you probably mean the liberal politically correct word police that are so prevalent in this country today.

There certainly is some support for Deen:

Well you have to be so fat to be seen
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
