Racial epithets led to celebrity chef Paula Deen's downfallA highly publicized racism scandal has already cost Deen a lucrative contract with the Food Network and may also cost the Southern cooking icon her deal with shopping network QVC. Whether fans can stomach the latest news and continue to purchase Deen’s 14 cookbooks remains to be seen.
The celebrity chef became embroiled in scandal last week after she admitted in a deposition that she had used racial epithets and tolerated racial jokes and pornography in the workplace, according to newsreports. The deposition was part of a discrimination lawsuit filed by a former employee.According to news reports of the deposition, which found its way online over the weekend, Deen admitted to using the N-word; making jokes about black people, Jews, and "rednecks"; and considering planning a plantation-themed party complete with black men “playing” slaves.

Asshats that paint all white southerners as racist must be overjoyed.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Seems the blacks and other liberals are saying that she should be "punished" for what she said 20 yrs. ago. Under this logic, I guess we should be "punished" for things we said years ago that are not politically correct today. Example: During WWII the national slogan was Kill the Nips or The Only Good Kraut is a dead one. Vietnam: My favorate was "Kill a Commie for Mommie (which today would mean most Demokrats). How many of us said things back years ago that we regret today? Should we be punished and have dour mouths washed out with soap? Jessie Jackass called the Mayor of NY a "Hymie" and he is still running off at the mouth. Some of the stuff Fat Al Sharpton said during the Twana Brawley incident were as bad as the act alledged. What did that Thug in LA say - Why can't we all get along." Like Paula Deen or not, if she is on the TV, change the channel. v

Dog the Bounty Hunter was able to get his show back and he's completely useless. Paula Deen actually has talent. She will be cooking on TV again before we know it.

I don't have strong feelings for Paula Deen one way or another (although I must say, the food at The Lady and Sons is delicious), but I think this whole thing has been blown out of proportion. She's being penalized for something she said in private, many years ago. I give her credit for telling the truth, lying about it would have been the easier thing to do. As a society, we have "forgiven" other people for things that I feel are more serious.
