Does that count for IRL use? 'Cause I suspect he's gone now for it.

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.


Seriously, when will white people ever catch a break?

Never. Seriously, never. Just as there will always be hate between genders and sexuality as hate will always exist because there is just too many sane and insane reasons to be possessed by it. :smt011

From Wikipedia

A former employee, Lisa Jackson, alleged in a lawsuit that "In the presence of Ms. Jackson and Uncle Bubba's restaurant manager and a vendor, Bubba Hiers stated they should send President Obama to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico so he could n***er-rig it."[38][relevant? – discuss]
According to the court documents, the plaintiff stated that she was appointed by Deen to handle the catering and staff for Bubba's wedding in 2007, and she asked Deen what the servers should wear; "Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n***ers 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," the plaintiff alleged Deen told her. "Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn't it? But we can't do that because the media would be on me about that."[38]
In her deposition for the suit, Deen stated that she has used the "N Word" at times, saying "Yes, of course" she did, and also acknowledged making racist jokes, though she claims she is not racist. "It's just what they are—they're jokes ... most jokes are about Jewish people, rednecks, black folks. ... I can't determine what offends another person."[39]


Man people use n****r rig around here all the time :lol: Or the more polite term is now "ghetto rig"

Just based on what Deen admitted to, who cares? :smt102 She used a racial term in the 1980's when a man stuck a gun to her head, or briefly courted the idea of hiring an all black staff to cater a wedding themed to an era when all the staff were black people. Sounds like someone found a mole hill and created Everest.

Now if what Jackson claims is true then that is a horse of a different color.

Really. She should have beat the shit out of Rihanna or gone on an anti-gay tirade at a comedy club or pissed on a 14 year old and filmed it or something less bad than saying a word 27 years ago. Then she'd still have a career.

Do we have evidence that proves GOSD *doesn't* own Kerry Washington...?

Thanks for reminding me why I don't post as much.

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.

Fucking hell. She's a person in a very public and apparently respected position, it's no surprise she was let go.

And by the way, she wasn't fired.

Her contract expires at the end of the month and they aren't renewing it.

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?


So because some ignorant people still use it where she's from, she should get a pass?

I'm not really understanding what you're saying.

It was a plantation themed wedding. I don't think any other assumption could be made.
