I think her time in the spotlight was going to come to an end soon anyway following the revelation of her having diabetes and attributing it largely to what she was eating.
oh yeah best way to deflect racism allegations, bring out a rent a tom to say how great said racist is, while reminding everyone they're a minority.

Seriously I detest self haters, nearly as much as a loathe the racist!

You did a good job switching it up to make your buddies agree with you and think you're "destroying her" though.

I'm not gonna say if I agree with Paula Deen or not, cause honestly I not read or cared enough to know all what's going on but reading the post on here makes me laugh for the fact that when people get in trouble for stuff they say I always read people cry out "FREEDOM OF SPEECH!" on other stories that it doesn't belong, so I'm honestly shocked I didn't see it on this one where it doesn't belong either, maybe it's cause half the people commenting on this story here are offended by it in some way.

Yes. I tried telling people on reddit that freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from consequences from saying stupid shit, but don't try using reason and logic on reddit, they love the hive mind mentality.Now I don't feel bad for laughing when Paula Deen was smacked in the face with a ham.

Exactly, people act like freedom of speech means you can say what ever the hell you want to say, when it clearly isn't that. I'm more glad then shocked people here aren't saying it, but I laugh that some of the people in here not saying it would on some other story probably.

So what you're pretty much saying is that anyone who is not black cannot use the word based solely off of not belonging to the same culture as you but people who are black and come from the same culture can because it's then labeled as "banter"? The word in and of itself is inherently racist.

I'm sure not all black people are comfortable with the alternate "....." version either.

I'm not black but I find the word offensive in any form but I also recognize that it indeed does have two meanings.
..... is basically like saying (usually black) -brother, -friend, -homie, etc..except more street/hood/rap style.
The -er version needs no explanation but I'll give one anyhow: It's what whites once openly called blacks to verbally debase them and to remind them of their 'place' in society. Finding a meeting place between these two meanings is practically impossible.

I wish the word would just go away, and I think the whole 'taking back' of the word has complicated matters greatly shown by this constant argument of the appropriateness of the word in which form and spoken by whom. (not just limited to this forum, I've seen it many times before).

I mostly see it's usage as stupid all around but there's also that 'in spite' of usage that I can understand too.
As in "you see me as a ....., but look what I've accomplished" because in a true racist's eyes, this is how they'll always view things no matter how far out of the 'ghetto culture' a black person gets.

You can use the word all day. It might offend someone though because it's alternate version was built out of black culture. It's essentially theirs (the alternate). The original came out of white racist culture, hence the negative reaction to it even if you use the alternate. It's all so complicated. I agree still it's usage in any form is inherently racist but also understand that context does play a role and it can be said without racist connotation. That distinction is probably more difficult to determine if the speaker is not black or a good friend.

You do know that black and white combine to make the picture right?
I think you're more of a gay rights activist. You have all the colors of the rainbow.
Or maybe you're just one of those red, green, blue types....let's hope not...super racist if so man.

Well Paula's lost another one,
