Attorney Washington: Civil Rights Activists Defending Paula Is Insulting

weopweopewop

By: Daryl K. Washington

I’ve finally had the opportunity to review the complaint filed against Paula Deen. For one, many people have been making this incident about the “N” word only, but it’s much more than that. I personally find it to be offensive whenever someone from another race is accused of using the “N” word they are somehow given a pass because of the use of the “N” word by some in the black communities. Let me be the first to say that I find the use of the word by anyone to be wrong. However, when it’s used in a racist or insulting manner, it hurts more.

I think individuals who are trying to defend Paula Deen’s use of the “N’ word should probably familiarize themselves with all of the facts of the case against her. Just so you know, in case you didn’t know, the person who initiated the complaint against Paula Deen and her brother is not “Black.”

She is a “white female” who was subjected to years of abuse and was finally fed up with her black employees being treated like animals, so stop thinking it was a black person complaining about Paula Deen’s use of the N word. Furthermore, Paula Deen indicated that she used the N word over 20 years ago. That is not what’s being alleged against her. That lady is something else and I’m glad I never supported any of her ventures. I personally find it insulting that so many black people are coming to the defense of Paula Deen after reading what she and her family subjected their employees to. When I learned about the major companies dropping Paula Deen without being demanded to do so, I knew it was deep. The fact that any civil rights activist is supporting Paula Deen is insulting and is a slap in the face.

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 n*ggers 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 n*ggers 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 n*gger-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 it suggested that employee visit Paula’s $13,000,000 mansion so he felt special and could be massaged.

I feel Paula Deen, her brother and anyone who treats people poorly should not be given a free pass. I wonder if Paula is truly sorry that she used the “N” word or that she was reported by someone who looks just like her. I appreciate the lady having the courage to report Paula Deen. It’s people like her and the videographer who leaked the 40% comments made by Mitt Romney who should be receiving the attention, not Paula Deen.

    Are allegations facts?

    Do you support condemning people for untried allegations in civil suits?

    Did you condemn Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan for their public, bigoted statements?

      Absolutely! AND, if you knew more about the African American community then you would know that. But, let’s try to be reasonable – please. No one gives a rat’s ass that she made those comments on her PERSONAL time in her PERSONAL space, but according to the law, those comments against, blacks, Jews and any other group or unacceptable! DUH!

      Let’s not mention the fact that Lisa Jackson is white, the lady who brought the allegations against Ole Paula in the first place.

      Finally, (sigh – roll eyes up at the ceiling) her turning a blind eye against sexual discrimination, ignoring the sexual harassment, unequal pay and host of other wrongs. Jeez! Some people can’t pull their heads out of their asses to breathe!

        These are just allegations! They have not been proven yet. It does not matter if Lisa Jackson is black, brown, or white!!
        I am not a fan of Paula Deen or her show but can we all just relax until there are some facts?!
        The only fact we know is that she used the N-word at some point in her life. Have you or any of your friends in your presence said anything offensive about anyone in your life? Should you lose your job and your reputation over it?

It’s Black Folks that did the Good Cooking in her Restaurants,and made her Very Wealthy…Black People can really Cook and Throw Down in a Kitchen, the fact is,they have to Cook and make Themselves Very Wealthy…We have to Get Our Own Businesses to Create Our Own Wealth…Try C & W Jellies and Jam. Sooo Good!

    I’s understandable why those Corporations are dropping Paula Deen like a hot plate of Grits.

    I can’t understand why any Black person would support that Southern White Hillbillie and her racists brother (Dr. Boyce, Jesse Jackson, Judy Smith).

    I feel sorry for those Black employees who had to put up with such uncivilized behavior from Bubba. I do believe a law suit on their behalf is being planned as well.

    Thank you, Mr. Washington. Until I read your article I did not have all the facts, but I had enough to know that this Paula Deen and her family are rabid, dyed-in-the-wool racists. I couldn’t believe that the black woman whose life is fictionalized on the TV show “Scandal” is going to help Paula Deen. And Jesse Jackson! He has become a misguided fool in his old age. If it’s attention Jackson wants, he’ll get it — the negative kind. No fool like an old fool. We struggle every day of every year fighting for the right to be treated equally. Then some clueless airheads wipe away our efforts with one gesture. Lord, give me strength.

    I never heard of Paula Deen until now people are only making her famous while talking about her and what she said OK the word niggar is one thing but to treat somebody bad is another I don’t believe how far black people have come will allow somebody white to treat them in that fashion without bringing it forward. White people use the word all the time around one another so what’s Love got to do with it. Black people grow up and if you embrace the word white people will let you use it to just joking I’m an Indian and all people see things different when it comes to the niggar word Richard Pryor made a million dollars off the word I never use it I had no reason to use it its better words out there to use when you mad at someone like Bitch mutherfuker and so on so if Paula use it let her keep on using it who really cares she’ll get another TV show and move on…..If white people conrinue to curse black people out let the black people curse them back out like saying pecker wood and red neck

      First of all, you are very ignorant. In this country, white people are STILL in control. Lisa Jackson (white) brought the allegations originally against Paula.

      It’s what Paula’s business has done – NOT said that has landed her empire in hot water. Duh!

      Do you read?

      First of all, as a Native American, do we tell you to grow up or forget about your history OR stop making a big deal about it? Who the hell are you to tell us the same?

      You couldn’t be THAT stupid – seriously. Wow! Paula Deen and her hillbilly ilk are being accused of racial epithets against employees WHILE on the job – that is against the law!

      Also, who are YOU to tell us when and how the word nigger (not niggar – you spelled it wrong) should be used? That isn’t your call to make dearie. When other races use that word, they are not (JESUS! How many times do I have to type this) using it the way we do. They are using it to demean and insult us.

      It is amazing that I have to type responses to your ignorance in sections. What kind of a Native American are you?

      My last reply to you. It’s not just the use of the N word. She is being brought up on charges because of what she has done.

      Unequal pay (against white women too)
      Sexual harrassment
      Practice of Jim Crow Laws(Telling a specific race they can only enter and exit through one means because of who they are)
      Bullying

      The list goes on and on…do you understand now?

    Great piece Brother Washington. Any African Americans who has consciously decided to defend Paula Deen is no doubt misinformed by Deen’s action. Although I haven’t read the complaint against her, I had a strange feeling that it was more to this complaint than the use of the N word 20 years ago. I’ve noticed a few black clergymen, some noted as civil rights activists has expressed sympathy for Deen and openly suggested Deen is a victim used as an escaped goat to divert attention away from the racial problems of now. Though I’m deeply concern why these leaders have decided to rally for Deen when in most instance they would have deemed otherwise. When considering the Reverend Jesse Jackson and as of late, he’s the primary leader rushed to her defense. If I was a gambler, I would wage a bet that money is discussed and ultimately the motive for his stepping up in her defense. And I believe it’s to be a similar reason why others may join him in this effort.

    Geez Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are defending Paula Deen for her actions? Thats sickening but the fact that it was a non black person who exposed Paula Deen for who and what she is to begin with and not one single black person stepping up to say or do anything while they were being treated like crap all this time is even more sickening. 2013 and some black folks are still afraid to open their mouth and fight back in the face of injustice.Its obvious that the woman who reported Paula Deen is doing it for the big pay out good luck to her.

      I agree with you to a point. BUT, black folks are not the ones who brought the allegations against Paula’s empire originally. Lisa Jackson was. Also, read the court docket. It isn’t JUST the N word (the media has done a bang up job keeping that only in focus – WE need to stop buying into it) – it’s what she allowed to happen (racist rants against Jews, Blacks, Women – sexual harassment, discrimination, unequal pay and so on.)

      Read what she and that brother of her did that landed her in hot water.

    @Sam Knight: “loved this article. I can’t even begin to care less about any Webster’s Dictionary definition of the ‘n’ word.”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I RESEARCHED where this word (niq.qer) came from, and it ORIGINALLY has Scandinavian roots, meaning it’s a caucasoid word!

    CHECK:

    “Scandinavia is a historical and cultural-linguistic region in Northern Europe characterized by a common ethno-cultural Germanic heritage and related languages that includes the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

    The vast majority of the human population of Scandinavia are Scandinavians, descended from several (North) Germanic tribes who originally inhabited the southern part of Scandinavia and what is now northern Germany, who spoke a Germanic language that evolved into Old Norse and who were known as Norsemen in the Early Middle Ages. The Vikings are popularly associated with Norse culture.

    The Vikings (from Old Norse víking) were seafaring north Germanic people who RAIDED, traded, explored, and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia, and the North Atlantic islands from the late 8th to the mid-11th centuries.”

    Let’s get to work: The Vikings were RAIDERS, MURDERERS, THIEVES, and BLOOD THIRSTY VILLAINS, who STOLE OTHER PEOPLE’S PROPERTY, MATERIALS and LAND! The period from the earliest recorded raids in the 790′s until the Norman conquest of England in 1066 is commonly known as; The Viking Age of Scandinavian history.

    IN OTHER WORDS; THESE SCANDINAVIANS/VIKINGS/GERMANS WERE NIQ.QERS OR NIQ.QARDS!!!

    The root word of nig.ger is ‘nig.gard’, which is a STINGY, MEAN and PARSIMONIOUS person, who STEALS FROM OTHERS.

    PARSIMONIOUS = a person who is unwilling to give, or spend anythang

    ARE CAUCASOIDS GIVING US BLACKS OUR FREEDOM, LIBERTY, RIGHT TO VOTE, EQUALITY, AND BLACK RIGHTS? Are they SPENDING money with us Black folks? Therefore, who are the REAL niq.qers?

    Nig.gards (caucasoids) generally called themselves;’nig.gers’ during our forced enslavement. They called slavery ‘nig.gardly deeds’!!! ARE YOU PUTTING THIS WORD TOGETHER?

    The Black Messiah saw through these niq.qards (light whites) during biblcal times!

    John 3:19 reads: “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL.”

    As you can see by this verse, the Black Messiah loved DARKNESS/BLACKNESS (his Afrikan people) MORE than he loved ‘light’ (white people) because he knew their DEEDS OF SLAVERY (nig.gardly deeds) WERE EVIL!!!

    The American Heritage Dictonary describes a nig.ger as; a DISPARAGING term for a member of ANY socially, economically or politically deprived group of people. Aren’t POOR crackers, chili chokers, asians, and other groups DEPRIVED of their rights, also?

    DEPRIVED = to take something away from; to keep from possessing or enjoying; deny:

    1.Suffering a severe and damaging lack of basic material and cultural benefits.
    2.(of a person) Suffering a lack of a specified benefit that is considered important.

    Therefore, this word has nothing to do WITH BLACK PEOPLE because ANYBODY can be a niq.qer, including crackers!!! THEY ARE THE ORIGINAL niq.qers/niq.qards.

    To be niq.qardly means to SCRATCH, ITCH, and to grudgingly loath to part with money, or possessions, or to grant favors, and not hesitant to SHARE IT! Caucasoids are always SCRATCHING and ITCHING around Black people. It is a code gesture for the word; niq.qer!!! OBSERVE THEM!

    A niq.qard is also a person who STEALS other people’s POSSESSIONS! What color are the bankers and CEO’s, who are STEALING OTHER PEOPLE’S POSSESSIONS, such as; (homes, 401k’s, retirement funds, etc.), and NEVER go to jail? What color are the people, who are STEALING minerals, oil, gold, and diamonds from Afrika and Afrikan people? What color are the people, who are DENYING US ALL OF OUR RIGHTS? You already know!

    “A man that is a nig.gard [churle] no [tyme] is [lyberall].” -R. Barnfield 1593 quote

    “A man that is a nig.gard SHALL no TIME is LIBERAL”

    ARE THESE DEMONrats and rePOOPlikkklaners(democrats and republicans) “LIBERAL” when it comes to our justice?

    LIBERAL = Open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values:

    1. of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating LIBERALISM, especially the FREEDOM OF THE INDIVIDUAL and GOVERNMENTAL GUARANTEES of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS and LIBERTIES.

    LIBERALISM = A political theory founded on the natural goodness of humans and the autonomy of the individual and FAVORING CIVIL and POLITICAL LIBERTIES, government BY LAW with the consent of the governed, and PROTECTION from arbitrary authority.

    WILL THE REAL NIQ.QERS PLEASE STAND UP!!!

    these two are very typical of those raised in the southern culture, I think Paula should have helped her brother to understand that his behavior was inappropriate and childish and could lead to trouble.
    To allow him to view porn on the net in her restaurant let’s me know that she didn’t respect herself or other female employees.
    No pass on these hurtful ,harmful behaviors.

It seems today people have forgot about the civil rights movement and slavery,as if racism has vanished from the world,young people are in denial i read their comments everyday on the internet! where we loss our minds of our senses i do not know,but Hate is just as much alive today!I see this world going to hell quicker than ever before,because when we forget the past we are doomed to repeat it,this is the legacy we leave for the future generations!

      The blood that was spilled in order to get the civil rights act and voting rights act was as wasted ss the blood spilled by workers trying to get unions established in this country. Everywhere I look the few victories Blacks have scored have been nullified by rich white people whether judges or CEOs at multinational corporations.
      The decision by the Roberts court to gut the voting rights act is a disgrace and there should be thousands of people, Black and white, in the streets to register their disagreement. But no one will say a word. It’s even worse that this decision came out just before the 4th of July festivities.

    Okay at what point are WE going to wake up and stop looking and seeking acceptance from these white folks? I mean really, 50+ years later we’re still crying about them using the term n*gga, we’re still knocking on their doors begging for a job, we’re still slaving at their jobs instead of pooling our resources to open/create our own jobs. Black people are the biggest consumer – so instead of complaining, stop patronizing. Would you prefer that they call us n*ggers in private but yet smile in our face during the day at work? That’s A*S backwards thinking and we’re A*S backwards because we’re still crying and complaining about things that are never going to change. You can’t make people accept and respect you. Begging for jobs instead of creating jobs will NEVER EVER earn the respect of whites, or any other race for that matter. Just Saying.

    I loved this article. I can’t even begin to care less about any Webster’s Dictionary definition of the ‘n’ word. Bottom line is that it’s not just about that at all – it’s a way of feeling about someone else, especially a Black someone else. Paula Deen made her bed & now has to lie in it & Black folks defending her have lost ALL respect from me. I was born & raised in the East then lived in the South (Atlanta) for 15 years. As it happened (not necessarily expected) I made great friendships with White Southerners who’d never resort to this language. Paula Deen’s age has nothing to do with her behavior & I consider that a cop-out for anyone who wants to offer it. As for Blacks supporting her, how sick I am of these self-serving types. Look, for all I know plantation-type weddings are all right – but the way she described them? Get Real! Even Shirley Temple paid great homage to Bill Robinson!

      Paula Deen took her businesses back to the Savannah, GA of 1955! LOL!

      I mean it wasn’t just about blacks using the “colored” bathroom and not being seen in the front of the restaurant. Paula Deen had women managers relegated to being bossed around by the white male managers and making much less than them. The white men in her businesses got away with murder.

      Lisa Jackson’s complaint said that Bubba Hiers told him that Paula Deen said that when it comes firing female and male employees, fire the female, because you can always get another one who will do whatever you say, but a good male employee was hard to find.

      Paula Deen is that woman who consider men to be kings and princes and women to be their servants.

      Like I said, she’s stuck in the old south of 1955.

    I’m copying this from another site, but it summarizes all three online documents in a nutshell:

    http://www.lipstickalley.com/f15/here-real-reasons-why-paula-deens-empire-crumbling-533803/

    Here are the highlights from Lisa Jackson’s Complaint:

    Paula Deen is an old school sexist woman that believes women and men have certain “roles” in the workplace. She fired a male general manager for sleeping with an underage server and said “I’m gonna do something I’ve never done. I’m gonna put a WOMAN in a MAN’S job. This was in 2005. Forty years after the women’s rights movement and the civil rights act was signed.

    Lisa Jackson was a called a “Jew girl” by Bubba Hiers and “almost Jewish” by manager Karl for “saving” money for the restaurant.

    Bubba Hiers (Paula Deen’s brother) was stealing close to $26,000 a month in receipts.

    Lisa Jackson was denied a high position based on her sex, because Paula Deen’s sons and their friend and manager Dustin would never allow a “woman” to tell them what to do.

    White general manager Dustin Walls of the Lady & Sons restaurant had to issue an internal apology for threatening to fire “all the monkeys” in his kitchen. Lisa Jackson brought Dustin Walls (the best friend of her sons) to Paula Deen’s home to address “firing all the monkeys in his kitchen” comment. All Paula Deen did was literally “slap him on the wrist”. That was it. Paula Deen didn’t want word to get back to the NAACP. She said they had to “act” like they were “doing something”, which in essence, neither Paula or her family could give a damn.

    Bubba Hiers stated that he learned from his sister Paula Deen that when it comes to firing a male or female staff member, it’s better to fire the female, because girls are a dime a dozen, but it’s hard to find good “male” employees.

    Lisa Jackson wanted a raise in 2007. She was told by her manager Karl, that Bubba Hiers (Paula Deen’s brother) would NEVER allow a “woman” to be paid more than what she is currently being paid. He said that he would have a heart attack if he knew she was getting paid as much as she currently was.

    At a meeting held discussing getting equal or fair compensation with the male managers, Paula Deen told the her female managers that they needed to all get along and become “one”, because none of them would ever make more the male managers. When Paula Deen’s male gm Karl came to Lisa Jackson’s defense, Paula told him to “Shut up.”

    In 2007, Earl Bubba Hiers offered a white male the job of kitchen general manager for $65,000 to only work from 9:00 – 3:00, no nights, no weekends, plus bonuses, vacations, and retirement. His salary would only be $100 a week less than Lisa Jackson. Lisa Jackson would be HIS supervisor. When Lisa applied for the position with significantly less responsibilities than her’s, she was flatly refused by Bubba Hiers. NO WOMAN was going to get that job. It will ALWAYS GO TO A WHITE MALE. Lisa also wasn’t getting holiday and retirement pay, even though she’s been there since 2005 and was a good little “jew girl” helping to make them money.

    Lisa Jackson stopped receiving bonuses for six months until her manager Karl took them away from her for getting divorced. He’s a religious nut that pushes his views in the workplace.

    Bubba Hiers would view pornography wherever there was a computer. He would even use the kitchen computer and staff would be forced to view it after he left. Lisa shared a small office with him and was forced to see and “hear” the pornography on the screen EVERY DAY for FIVE YEARS. Paula Deen was very aware of her brother’s on the job porn watching. She called them “jokes”.

    Bubba Hiers made a joke in front of staff that the reason why men like “flat heads” is because you can lay a can of beer on their heads while they’re giving you a blowjob.

    Paula Deen said that she’d like a bunch of little ni..g/..g/ers to wear long sleeved white shirts, black shorts and bow ties like back in the shirley temple days.

    Earl Bubba Hiers falsely fired a black hostess for “stealing” a white customer’s purse. He called the police and had her searched. Lisa Jackson wasn’t aware when she hired two black hostesses that Earl Bubba Hiers didn’t like blacks in the front of the restaurant. This is when she first got the position. Needless to say, the black hostess was humiliated. Bubba Hiers made Lisa moved the remaining black hostess to the back of the restaurant where she could not be seen by customers. This was also the practice in Paula Deen’s restaurants as well. Paula Deen and Bubba Hiers would NEVER, EVER hire a black manager in their restaurants, because they believe blacks should only be allowed to frequent the back of the restaurant and not be seen by customers.

    Lisa Jackson’s Deposition:
    Karl Schumaeker (gm of Uncle Bubba’s) said the country will be ruined if that n.i/,g..g/er (Obama) got elected.

    Earl Bubba Hiers was talking about one of his employees named Tony Cole talking about the hot temperature in the kitchen with Lisa Jackson and another person, saying saying that that if he thought it was hot in there, then he (Bubba Hiers) would ship him back to Africa. Bubba Hiers said he wished he had a million dollars, so that he could ship all n..ig..ge/rs back to Africa.

    A raccoon trapper came in to trap raccoons in the restaurant (must be a southern thing), and Earl Bubba Hiers said that he had a bunch of c..00<ns in the kitchen and that he would pay the trapper $10.00 an hour or $10.00 per c..00<n to take.

    Bubba Hiers didn't want blacks (ALL BLACKS not just his employees) out front using the bathroom or in the restaurant. Earl Bubba Hiers referred to them as “bugs”.

    When a black person would come in for a job, Bubba Hiers told his managers to put the number “110” at the top of the page, turn it over, then put a cross through it, and it was a “NO”.

    Bubba Hiers told one employee that her having dentures would make her husband really happy “tonight”.

    Bubba Hiers watched porn damn near everyday and passed around sexually suggestive material to female employees and made them watch the porn with him.

    Bubba Hiers said that it was PAULA DEEN'S POLICY that no blacks work the front of the restaurant. It was also a policy at Lady & Sons restaurant as well.

    Black employees were NEVER allowed to go through the front door or use the front bathrooms. EVER. Only white employees were allowed to go through the front door and use the front bathrooms. Bubba Hiers didn't even want black customers using the front bathrooms or in the restaurant PERIOD, but there wasn't too much he could LEGALLY do about it. This was also a PAULA DEEN APPROVED POLICY.

    Bubba Hiers called one of his black employees named Martel “boy” a lot and he would respond “Yes, master”.

    Bubba Hiers violently shook an employee named Big Will up against the wall and told him that he didn't have “civil rights”, because he worked for him and Paula. Big Will wouldn't tell Bubba Hiers about an incident that happened in the kitchen and said he wanted to invoke his Fifth Amendment Rights. Bubba Hiers went ballistic on him. Bubba called some other employee in the kitchen, she saw what was happening and didn't go in. She told Lisa she was scared of Bubba Hiers.

    Bubba Hiers charged his visits to the strip club as an “expense” and NO, he wasn't bringing clients with him. This is in addition to Bubba Hiers stealing $26,000 a month in receipts from his restaurant from which he was a 49% co-owner with Paula Deen Enterprises owning 51%.

    Bubba Hiers would hit on one black female employee constantly and she called him her “master” and the head white man in charge. She said she would basically do whatever Bubba Hiers asked to keep her job. Never said she had sex with him, but from the way Lisa said it, it was “implied” that she felt forced to fuck him for her job.

    Dora is a longtime black employee whom Paula Deen discriminated against. Paula Deen promoted Dustin (white dude) as manager of the kitchen in one of her restaurants. Dora had been there much longer and has way more experience. Dustin even got paid than longterm white manager Lisa Jackson. So, it appears that Paula Deen believes in paying WHITE MALES more than blacks and even WHITE female employees.

    Big Will (Will Frazier), the employee that Bubba Hiers violently manhandled and yelled obscenities too, has said that the “incident” never took place. Lisa Jackson said that three days later Big Will cornered her in the locker area saying that he was scared of Bubba Hiers and didn't know what Bubba was going to physically do to him. Big Will afraid of both physical and job retaliation. There were many witnesses to this incident, but he refuses to tell the truth about what happened due to fear of losing his job.

    Thank You! Well said. I am appalled by this entire incident. Anybody advocating for Paula Deen should read the entire deposition transcript. Major Corporations are not punishing her for her use of the N- word 20 years ago. She apparently was privy to the alleged current employee abuses by her brother and did nothing to correct the situation. That to me reads as “implied consent” to her Brother’s actions. Racism is so deeply ingrained in the American psyche that some people clearly do not see this as an issue. The “Get over it” mentality that skates by the fact that the behavior is unacceptable is legion. By not addressing the hostile work environment allegations internally, PAULA DEEN, LLC has been outes and is being held accountable by corporate America, not only by African-Americans as the current internet memes appear to imply.

    Thank you Mr. Washington. I was so disappointed to see Rev. Jackson and Dr. Boykins on CNN’s Anderson Cooper defending Paula Deen.

    I wondered if they had actually read the complaint against Paula Deen Enterprise, LLC because no self-respecting Black person could read that complaint and come away thinking oh that wasn’t so bad, apparently Ms. Deen made a mistake and she should use it as a learning experience.

    A mistake is when you add too much of a spice to a recipe. When you engage in a years long campaign of intimidation, humiliation, racism, sexual and racial discrimination, physical violence, gender based discrimination, economic exploitation and invoking fear, that’s not a mistake. Nor is it something that should be excused.

    Paula Deen Enterprise, LLC deserves every ounce of the consequences of its actions. Ms. Deen operated as though equal opportunity employment and human resource laws did not apply to them. And they did so at the expense of poor working people who had few options to defend themselves.

    One more thing. Sometimes, I think the media boiled this entire situation down to Ms. Deen’s use of a racially derogatory term years ago in order to portray her as an aging White woman who was simply a victim of her culture and who deserves our sympathy instead of our judgement.

    interesting. I sort’ve lost respect for Dr. Boyce on this topic when I saw him shucking and jiving and defending Paula Dean on the today show. He and I think tap dancing Jesse were both doing it. I’m not able to look at Boyce the same now.

    so stop thinking it was a black person complaining about Paula Deen’s use of the N word. Furthermore, Paula Deen indicated that she used the N word over 20 years ago. That is not what’s being alleged against her

    BLACK PEOPLE YOU PLAYED YOUR SELF
    No man is blinder than the man that can see but refuses to because we completely ignore that what Paula Deen said is child’s play to how we played ourselves ….

    FEBRUARY BLACK HISTORY MONTH OF FACTS – THE YEAR IS 2013

    In the era of a United States black sitting president and when given the choice between entertainment and self respect black people in a slap in the face to their slave ancestors chose entertainment and paid $13.50 a piece to have the white man call them “niggers” over 100 times.

    For only $13.50 or more each we will not only entertain you by parading your image before the world as a ignorant happy to be a slave with a master(MENTOR) but we will prove to the world that you are ignorant black people.

    While we buck your eyes with a ass kicking soundtrack and “take that Mr. Charley” action we will for real sit you in a seat for 2 hours, take your woman and call you a nigger to your face more than 100 times and you will love it and pay us $13.50 or more per person for the privilege.

    BLACK PEOPLE SCREAM:
    It’s a deal! I will go see it!, I am on my way to see it! I just saw it! greatest movie ever! and now black people want to jump on Paula Deen. Well, consider this:

    INVINCIBLE IGNORANCE – When black people buy theaters tickets to see themselves portrayed by Hollywood as ignorant slaves, fat black maids or sign and accept demeaning Hollywood slave contracts and then tell other black people that it was a good movie. You played yourself.

      Brother Mubarak: “INVINCIBLE IGNORANCE – When black people buy theaters tickets to see themselves portrayed by Hollywood as ignorant slaves, fat black maids or sign and accept demeaning Hollywood slave contracts and then tell other black people that it was a good movie. You played yourself.”
      ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

      Nothing, but the Truth! As you OBSERVED; the old ‘slave – massa’ type of mentality still occurs today. Negroids are too scared to SPEAK UP to the caucasoid racist, who “copied” Django, but when a caucasoid racist female runs off at the jibs (lips) (Paula); the walls come tumbling down!

      I didn’t want to go see that bullshyt movie because that’s all it was, but negroids, once again, fell for the bullshyt!

      Paula is using negroids just like the media uses their servants (Black reporters), who report the news. They are only allowed to do, and say, so much on ALL media outlets when they report the nrews.

      Unfortunately, negroids think that caucasoid movie makers, and tell-a-LIE-vision producers, and directors are gonna show Black people in positive images! NEVER GONNA HAPPEN! They ONLY thang most negroids want to do is watch sports, go to the entertainment center (church), and ‘pray to jesus/god/mary’…whatever!

      The media’s jobs are to keep negroids, NOT BLACKS, in this slave-like, docile, submissive state of mind! Black Conscious Thinkers are hipped to this manipulation that is happening right before our eyes!

      ALL religions are keeping Black people against one another because religion is just another word for DIVISION or SEP-A-RAT-ION (there’s a RAT in separate), and these caucasoid RATS have been keeping us separated through [THEIR] religion they made up in 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea when xtianity became LEGAL under the murderous ruler by the name of Constantine!

      If negroids keep accepting being called; ‘minorities’, ‘racists’, ‘race card players’, and ‘nig.gers’; [THEY] will always be the caucasoid’s slave!

      ALL of these words describe caucasoids because they are the ONLY (8% of the world’s population); Black and brown people are 92% of the world’s dominate culture. They are the only group of people, who are minorities because they were the LAST race, who were birthed (by Black parents), and they are the ONLY GROUP of people, who pratice white supremacy, and world domination over ALL non-white people, and they are also, the ORIGINAL nig.gards on the planet!

      GO RESEARCH THIS WORD AND GET THE TRUTH! THIS IS WHY THESE DEMONIC devils DID NOT WANT US TO READ BECAUSE READING IS KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM, AND POWER!!!

    “You can only be destroyed by believeing that you really are what the white world calls a nigger.”
    -James Baldwin

    The American Heritage Dictionary defines the word ‘nig.ger’ as:

    nig.ger = used as a disparaging term from a member of ANY socially, econonically or politically DEPRIVED GROUP OF PEOPLE!

    Therefore, a nig.ger can be a negroid, mongoloid, or cauccasoid! The ORIGINAL nig.gards were caucasoid enslavers, who called their dirty deeds of slaver are ‘nig.gardly’ deeds!

    A nig.gard is a STINGY [Scandanavian origins], a GRASPING (greedy) person; a MISER; STINGY MISER individual. WHAT COLOR ARE Scandanavians?

    “Gun owners are the new nig.gers of society.”
    -John AquilinoScandanavian origins

    What color are the people, who are BUYING UP the gun shops, and gun shows…caucasoids!!!

    DO THE MATH!

    Attorney tltle gives you what advantage in common sense? None. A WORD HURTS? HOW? IT DOES NOT TOUCH YOU SO ITS ALL IN YOUR HEAD. Do you realize how pathetically weak you must be to let a WORD hurt you? You need therapy for not low but NO self esteem. You are stuck in a childhood seeking only attention, praise and love from
    everyone that you also wish to manipulate and control. You are a dependent therefore. YOU THEREFORE WISH TO CONTROL OTHERS EVEN TELLING THEM WHAT THEY CAN OR CANNOT SAY. ITS YOUR REACTION TO THE WORD AND A “HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT TO ME, I AM GOD ” mentality. Children hate criticism, the opposite sex and live in fantasy land.

      FYI. Mr. Attorney. The key word is alleged. She admitted to using the n word. All else is allegation. You could not represent me convicting someone before trial. Integration is partly to fault here. To integrate people you must merge not submerge one culture for another. The language should have been addressed, history of both cultures taught and a paving of the way for mutual respect to flourish. Have you read the definition in english for black or mulatto? How is any person black or white not to be hateful of blacks. Either you attack education and the institutution of racism or you get the hell out to your own culture and language. Do you really think attacking Paula Deen will address the pervasive racism of all peoples? I hope you make money but many blacks Wll pay with their lives or more incarceration if you attack this woman – a mere symptom of a much deeper and complex problem. The Zimmerman trial is just a sample of injustices to come.

        You’re an idiot. And look, threats from white folks. SURPRISE. Lmao. I like how your comment conveniently misses the atrocities your race is responsible for, and the lasting effects we’re still battling today. Who invented the N word and the hurt/anger that comes with it? White people. Perhaps yall shouldn’t create monsters you’re too scared to fight and secretly do everything in your power to be like. The legacy of White AmeriKKKa is at best, a BLOODBATH. A Rob Zombie remake. You breed people like Paul Deen, mass shooters, serial killers, cannibals, pedophilesmeth heads etc. Yet yall feel superior. The slaughterers of Native Americans, the enslavers of African Americans, segregation, The Holocaust, war, etc. Gtfoh. Some of yall are the devil PERIOD.
