    I'm just thinking that where there's smoke, there's fire and people who are parading up and down facebook declaring it was one 27 year-old statement, like it's a FACT, are idiots.

    Denying something doesn't mean that it didn't happen though.

    These facebook people are blaming "the media" for trying to take her down. It's a conspiracy, you know. "The media" hates good old fashioned American values. Next thing you know, they'll try to let gay people get married. Oh wait.
    The people I've heard say this are only hearing the soundbites the media keeps playing where she says she said it once during a robbery or something. People have not paid attention to the whole complaint. Mostly because they'd have to find it and read it for themselves since the media can't seem to be arsed to tell much beyond Paula's depo response.

    Maybe I'm cynical because I've lived around this kind of thing my whole life. There are always a few people, mostly older, who act so sweet and then talk this kind of shit when they think it's ok. Not most people, just some. It may turn out that Paula did just say it once and this is all persecution but I sure would wait for the smoke to clear before I'd start waving a damn protest sign in her defense.

    I don't even BEGIN to believe that. She said it, she meant it.

    She says she did not say this. Doesn't mean she's telling the truth.

    She did say it under oath.
    If they can actaully PROVE she said it then she can be tried on perjury charges.

    Also, to be perfectly fair, the other woman says she said that. It would be nice if we had a recording.
    Does it matter? Who knows, she ain't gonna recover from this.

    Default Paula Deen Using Supreme Court’s Prop 8 Ruling To Get Discrimination Suit Dismissed

    Oh for the love of god...

    Paula Deen Using Supreme Court's Prop 8 Ruling To Get Discrimination Suit Dismissed - Deadline.com



    It won’t bring back her canned Food Network show, lost endorsements, book deals and merchandising sales, or her reputation in many circles. But Paula Deen today pushed to have dismissed part of a racial discrimination lawsuit — the one in which she confessed to using the N-word in a deposition. The fallout once the deposition became public has quickly led to the collapse of Deen’s cooking empire. The TV chef, who admitted to using the racial slur in the past, is using the Supreme Court’s recent Prop 8 ruling in her efforts: Today, the defendants filed paperwork (read it here) in U.S. District Court in Georgia citing SCOTUS’ ruling June 26 that essentially struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s anti-same-sex marriage Prop. 8. Deen’s former restaurant employee Lisa Jackson brought the original suit against the chef; although white, Jackson has bi-racial nieces. Deen’s supplementary material to the earlier motion for sanction noted Chief Justice John Roberts’ opinion for the majority in the Prop 8 ruling: “For a federal court to have authority under the Constitution to settle a dispute, the party before it must seek a remedy for a personal and tangible harm.” Related: ‘Today’ Gives Paula Deen Failing Grades After Interview

    On Tuesday, lawyers for Deen, her brother Earl Hiers and their co-owned Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House sought sanctions (read it here) against Jackson claiming she had no right to claim racial discrimination. “Jackson cannot enforce someone else’s right, and she has no actionable claim for feeling ‘uncomfortable’ around discriminatory conduct directed at others,” the June 25 motion said. “These defendants respectfully request the Court to consider Hollingsworth in its resolution of their motion to dismiss,” Monday’s four-page filing added. Deen, her brother and their establishments are represented by William P. Franklin Jr., of Oliver Maner LLP and Thomas A. Withers of Gillen Withers & Lake LLC in this latest filing.

    I just saw someone post on FB one of those meme things, it's said that rappers should be sued as well for being racist against white people if Paula Deen is being sued (or something to that effect). I had to drop the person who posted it, I just can't with this stupid shit.

    Not that this is even the point, but doesn't that statement right there establish that discriminatory behaviour was going on in the first place?

    It's a shame that this mess isn't going to open up some sort of dialogue on racism and act as some sort of national educable moment, but it doesn't look like it's happening that way.

    That is probably the better idea, especially if you want to maintain a relationship with those friends. I am just really over people exposing their hidden asshole-ness freely on FB.
