Paula Deen had a paternalistic (or in her case, perhaps maternalistic) attitude towards Black people. She had this dream that she just loved Blacks as part of the “traditional South.” She had her antebellum fantasies, rather than the austere and realistic view of Blacks as people to avoid at all costs, and in any encounters, say as little as possible and have as little to do with them as possible.
She is like the pathetic whigger who thinks he’s earned a ghetto pass to say nigga among his black “friends,” until one day, unexpectedly, his pass is revoked and he gets beaten up for saying “nigga,” or gets fired from his job, or accused in divorce court (maybe by his black wife, LOL) of being a racist. Or, if he’s a business owning paternalistic whigger, like Paula Deen, gets sued.
Paula Deen’s sons came out to say that Paula is not a racist at all!
But the Deen sons — also chefs with TV shows, and part of their family’s restaurant businesses — insisted the depictions of their mother are an effort by the plaintiff to get a chunk of the family fortune.
“I’m disgusted by the entire thing, because it began as extortion and it has become character assassination,” Bobby Deen said.
Official: Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract
Jamie Deen said it’s “ridiculous, completely absurd to think there is an environment of racism in our business, and it’s really disrespectful to the people that we work with. We have strong, educated men and women of character that have been with us for five, 10, 15, 20 years. To think they would allow themselves to be in this position is simply baloney. It’s ridiculous.”
When he was a child, Jamie Deen said, his parents taught him the story of his hero, baseball legend Hank Aaron. They explained that “the challenges (Aaron) had to overcome because of his color was unacceptable.”
Paula Deen’s fortune has taken a hit in recent days as the Food Network dropped her, as did Smithfield Foods, one of her key sponsors.
There are questions now over whether other businesses including QVC and Walmart may cut ties with the star of Southern cooking.
That’s exactly the problem. She’s actually not a racist. If she was a racist, she’d understand a very important law of life:
Paula Deen relaxed around blacks, and now an enterprising Black employee is going after a chunk of the family fortune. That’ll teach her!
