Paula Deen is:

__ a. A hateful but well-respected academic anthropologist who studied human civilization for 40-years and came to the conclusion that Black people can be called derogatory names.  Or

__ b. An uneducated, unsophisticated, older Southern woman who found she had a talent for cooking which she’s managed to parlay into a multimillion dollar business.

Ah America … celebrity-worshiping has its costs.  We turn our heroes into superhuman, perfect beings and then get angry when they act like imperfect people.  I don’t think anyone should use the word ‘nigger’ – starting with those ugly, women-hating, hip-hopping rappers who’ve confused their young fans on what’s acceptable language.

Paula Deen has recognized her past mistakes and apologized.  Apology accepted Ms. Deen – now please get back into that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans.
