Your Racist Friend
"Is what I is" said a tearful Paula Deen in an interview with Matt Lauer this past week. And what is Ms. Deen?: A Racist. Why you ask: For using the N-word (how often is up for debate right now) and dreaming of throwing a "plantation style wedding" for her brother...with "all black servers." I'll pause while you draw an uncomfortable breathe. Yeah...that one is pretty hard to deny, and Deen merely shook her head when questioned about the affair. When asked whether she understood that the slur was at all times inappropriate, Deen claimed she wasn't sure what offended people due to the language she hears in her kitchens. Alright then. So what has being a racist cost Ms. Deen?: Almost all of her Business Partners: Walmart, Sears, Kmart, QVC, Target, JC Penney, and Random House Books have all dropped Deen.
