    seriously...this is stupid your mad at a women who used the "N" word over 20 years ago....how ignorant can people get, if people cared half as much as they do about Paula Deen maybe america would be better, you tell me ONE person who that has not used that word!!! so how is it that lil Waynes label don't drop him after he stomped on our flag, nor did it blow up the news but Paula Deen gets all this grief over something she said 20 plus years ago...something is wrong with this picture!!!!

    I find the whole situation disturbing. Paula Deen said something 27 years ago and being punished for it now. She's being sued by a revengeful, money hungry, past employee and the lawsuit has not even been determined. What's more disgusting is that the media has run this story into the ground until it made the entire world mad and divided. How is that responsible journalism?

    It's disgusting because it's a word that the black culture use on an everyday basis. You can't get rid of racism if the black culture continues to use the "N" word themselves. You can't get rid of racism if you can't logically process the facts that Paula Deen, out of fear and anger, said a word after having had a gun held to her head during a bank robbery. I probably would have said more than she did as would a lot of you.

    It's unfair that companies who's political stance and who have their own racial bias cut ties with Paula Dean. Maybe each business should clean up their own backyard before they start judging someone elses. Each business now showed the whole world that it's not ok to make mistakes (27 years ago) and the world should not use forgiveness and that you should never tell the truth (as Paula Dean did in a deposition).
    What a great example of Business Core Values!

    What really disgusts me...Is Paula Dean said a WORD...but people like Michael Vick hurt, abused, and had dogs raped by other dogs and objects. Yet Michael Vick was admitted back into the NFL and is praised and worshiped daily.

    What really disgusts me...Is Paula Dean said a WORD....but there are more serious issues in the world like violent criminals that still walk the streets raping women and children. There are terrorists trying to destroy America. There's an economic crisis in the forefront and you all worry about a WORD. It's only a WORD.
    Priorities are out of alignment.
    What would Jesus do? I'll tell you..Jesus will make sure Paula Dean is just fine and ok!

    By the way...Have you all ever listened to any rap songs where the "N" word is used every other word. Where the songs promote violence, drugs, and guns? Hmmm...

    One of these days, my sister and I want to eat Paula's Thanksgiving FEAST! Sit down and drink lemonade with Paula and have a good ol down home conversation while sitting on the back porch in a rocking chair...WE LOVE YOU PAULA!
