Honestly. I think the whole thing is stupid!!! I hate the N word, but I said it in high school 20 years ago! Am I racist now? NO!! Let the lady be!
Quoting Twin's Mommy:" I agree, to an extent. While the way black people use the n word is very, very different from how a racist ... [snip!] ... would use it. But, black people call us cracker, honkey, whitey, etc all the time, but it isn't rascist for them to say that."
There is a double standard in this country. It is highly offensive for a white person to use the n word. But, at the same time black people can call us whatever they please and never get backlash from it.

Ok we've heard this statement like 50 billion times on BG.Pick a new line FFS.
I feel sorry for her honestly. Lost of black people use that word toward each other, so the day they stop doing that, I'll care more about it.
I think the whole thing is blown way out of proportion. It's like just because she's a celebrity it's in the spotlight. There's a lot more racism out there than this. Bringing so much attention to it is counterproductive IMO. I don't know all of the details but it seems ridiculous.
I also think these rappers and comedians that use that word regularly should be boycotted.

Good. You're just another useless opinion on BG anyway.

TMZ just released a report:
Lisa Jackson -- who was fired as manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House -- is asking for damages based on racial harassment, claiming she's African-American adjacent. As for Jackson's proof she's got African-American ties, she points to her partner's biracial niece, whom Jackson claims is half Black.
According to Paula's new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Jackson's niece is NOT Black at all ... not even a little. Paula says Jackson's partner has now admitted the niece is Hispanic -- NOT Black.
And Paula's especially pissed that Jackson alleged in her lawsuit that Paula used the N-word in connection with Bubba's wedding, yet has never offered a shred of proof that the word was used.
So now Paula wants the judge to throw the book at Jackson, fining her with sanctions for creating a bogus racial harassment case.
and I read before this that in the ladies deposition she admitted to never hearing Paula Deen use offensive language personally, so it sounds like the lady made everything up and the media is rolling with it.

Useless? It was enough for you to change your SN. :lol:
