The Paula Deen Incident: What you should know before you defend her

#1NoName999Posted 7/7/2013 8:39:38 AM(edited)
Yes yes, I hate to pull a BBT. But let's face it, it would have been ignored otherwise

Here's a summary of some of the things being alleged against Paula Deen, her brother Bubba Hiers and the Deen business entities:

Summary:

Paula Deen, while planning her brother's wedding in 2007, was asked what look the wedding should have. She replied, "I want a true southern plantation-style wedding." When asked what type of uniforms the servers should wear, Paula stated, "well what I would really like is a bunch of little ******s to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around;

Black staff had to use the back entrance to enter and leave restaurant;

Black staff could only use one bathroom;

Black staff couldn’t work the front of the restaurants;

Brother Bubba stated his wishes: “ I wish I could put all those ******s in the kitchen on a boat to Africa”;

Bubba asked a black driver and security guard "don’t you wish you could rub all the black off you and be like me? You just look dirty; I bet you wish you could." The guy told Bubba he was fine as is;

Bubba on President Obama: they should send him to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, so he could ******-rig it;

He shook an employee (Black again) and said” F your civil rights…you work for me and my sister Paula Deen;

Paula’s son Jaime's best friend managed the Lady & Sons restaurant. He threatened to fire all the 'Monkeys' in the kitchen. When Paula found out…she slapped him on the wrist and suggested that the employee visited Paula's $13,000,000 mansion so he felt special and could be massaged.

Let's pretend for a moment that this is the first time any of this information has come to light. Do you honestly believe that the people seriously defending Deen would be swayed by this?

There are really two major groups of people who are defending Deen: Racists, and people who think that individuals should not be punished for their beliefs regarding race. Why would the revelation that Deen might actually have done racist things in the past influence either of those groups in any way?

If any of those allegations are proven to be true, then you will see people stop defending her.

If any of those are proven true then we have a legitimate complaint. Otherwise its much like pedophilia witch hunts.

^ that's been a common misconception, nobody is trying to punish Deen, its not like the Chick Fil A thing when people were calling for boycotts, this incident is entirely one sided with Deen and her crowd milking the victim card
