All of this uproar over Paula Deen using the N word is a double standard. Blacks use the N word when greeting each other, girls address their boyfriends as “this is my N.” Musicians address their race in their music using the same racial slur.

Not sure what I would call a person who held a gun pointed at me, I have no doubt there would be a lot of action verbs coming out of my mouth.

Paula is now being punished by those who were her greatest supporters. Each of us have said or done something we wish could be taken back.

Everyone seems to forget about the truckloads of food that she gave away, regardless of their race. We have a chance to silently voice our support for Paula. Wherever you shop ask for her product by name or order her cookbooks.
