    Wasn't the offensive remark made by Ms. Deen made about 30 years ago? How long does a person need to be punished for a long ago comment? I don't think I have seen any rappers punished for their use of the "N" word. I don't think Jesse Jackson has been ostracized for his racial slur about Jews. Seems there is a double standard if you are black versus white when it comes to "acceptable" remarks.
