Paula Deen is a Democrat and a huge supporter of President Obama. She even help campaigned for him back in 2008.

So are you insinuating most Obama supporters are racist ?

"N-word" user Paula Deen is an Obama supporter | The Daily Caller

That has to win the award for the most creative insertion of Obama into a discussion I've ever seen. LOL

Anyway nothing is going to happen to this woman. She will pull an Imus. She will lose her network spot but she will settle someplace smaller when the hubbub dies down and will keep making lots of money. No need to feel sorry for the rich lady. She will continue being rich.

I read that she attended someone else's party with the servers being black, it wasn't hers. She said she liked the presentation, but was afraid that it would be taken the wrong way if she did the same. Looks like she was right.

No that was a different discussion. The slave thing was for her brothers wedding. It was her idea.

From what i heard on the news this morning she wanted to organize a wedding in an old style southern antebellum atmosphere with pseudo slaves doing most of the serving..
Dumb idea Paula in these days of hyper political correctness, but that said we all occasionally do some dumb things in our lives,i think the level of retribution she's receiving for this dumb move is a bit over the top.No more tv show,no more books, no more endorsements, and probably the city of Savannah will shut down her restaurant.

Aren't you missing the point: you may not have liked her, I didn't either: well I did for a very short while, but a little of her goes a long way, but the point isn't, they cut her, it is how and why. For those of us much past 50, if we got cut, got stabbed in the back or anything else for things we did and said, 20 plus years ago, we would all have lost jobs, friends, whatever. This isn't justifying what she did or said, but it is still chicken, the Food Network used this excuse to dump her. What part of that is so hard for many to understand?

The city would have no legal right to close her restaurant because of what she has said.

Yes, there was something about a wedding in her family and she was planning it around a plantation theme, with all black servers. There's something really sick about that. So demeaning.

Then, there is this lawsuit, in which she is charged with both sexual and racial discrimination.

I don't think I will ever forget how her fat, phony, smiling face pushed high caloric, fat and sugar loaded recipes on her public all the while realizing she was diabetic, and that diet actually brought out that deadly ailment in her.

Hers is the face of hypocrisy, in my opinion. Good riddance!
