Paula Deen, daughter of the south, self-made fatback cooking millionaire has admitted under oath that she has used the n-word. She has used it in anger and she has used it conversationally. What part of this is surprising? Deen grew up in a south that called black men and women girl and boy from the time they were in the cradle until the time they took residence in the grave. Times have changes and language has changed, but she is a daughter of the old south, and that south yearns for a simpler time. A time when everyone knew their place and dressed accordingly. Deen supposedly wanted blacks to dress as servants at an event she was planning. So is Deen a racist? I don’t know and we would not know this about her if the court deposition had not become public. What would surprise you is to find out that some people you might call your friends use the word more often than you know. So do we boycott Deen? Start an online petition against her or simply chalk it up to how she was brought up? Share your thoughts.
