Really just going to gloss over the wanting blacks to act as slaves-thing, huh?

Kerry Rhodes though... :smt011


so they have to apologize?? do they lose their jobs, 9 times out of 10 they get suspended a game or two and fined but they don't get fired.

Yeah. They're forced to apologize. And they lose money if the get suspended and fined. I'm not sure. Well, in Escobar's case, he did get traded. The dude's career in Toronto was done. And being an athlete that's known locally and throughout the sport and being a Food Network

If you're advocating that people should lose their jobs for spitting slurs, then you're not exactly helping the situation. I'm just pointing out that they don't get away with it, just as they don't get way with saying racial slurs in the game.

yet its perfectly appropriate for sports players to use words derogratory to gay people, or women and STILL have a job??? Its not like she was saying it all the time or anything...

This. It's similar to Martha Stewart - people can't accept a succesful female.

Hell, if Deen had claimed to never use the n word, then I could understand tbe uproar. She's in her 60s and lives in Savannah - do you honestly believe that word ISN'T used today?

Robert Irvine waslet go for exaggerating his resume, yet they brought him back after a year or two.
Hopefully Deen will get the same consideration.

I bet there are still 'Old South' parties like that. I have no idea where they find black men willing to work them, but they went on at least 15 years ago, if not still today. Ask Chap if his frat still does them.

The whole thing is really insane. The weirdest part is how she was acting prior to today, as if there was absolutely nothing wrong with any of it. :lol:

That's what puts this story over the top. To say you want black slaves at your wedding is pretty bad. To say you want black slaves at your wedding... And that it's no big deal? That's some gangsta shit right there. :lol:

That article is editorializing. The account I heard was she wanted them dressed in white coats & ties, not "slave" clothes.
LOL, I could see PD becoming a bigger separating factor in America than red state vs. blue state. :lol:

You have to understand that most Southerners Paula's age and older are very much like her. Casually racist but in denial of it. And no matter how many times we try to politely inform them of their wrongness, we are met with stubbornness and charm. So my generation is pretty much just letting them be and hoping/expecting that mindset to die out over the next 20 years. But it doesn't help when outsiders (no pun intended) start looking in and making commentary. I've met racist northerners, especially from Boston & Columbus, that put any Southerner to shame.

Hmmm. So you're saying Leonardo DiCaprio's character in Django Unchained is more charming than, say, GOSD?

The fact that a judge held Deen in contempt of court for allegedly withholding evidence in the trial related to this mess probably didn't help things, either.

She used the word in 1986 after a black man held a gun to her head, and she only told her husband. :lol: And she only 'mulled over' the wedding. If she actually did it, how would it be different than hiring black people to be slaves for a movie or play? This is only an issue because she's white. Probably also because she's Southern.
