Dear Paula:

Please develop a recipe for “Quityerbitchin” with a warm “Shutthefuckup” sauce and a “Help help I’m being repressed” garnish.

And lay off the martyr cookies.

As much as I want to love Paula Deen, she’s pretty much made it impossible

“It’s like that black football player who recently came out”

Ugh. Stop. Please stop. If anyone needs to disappear from the spotlight, it’s her…..and Zimmerman.

She seriously just needs to go drown her sorrows in butter and STFU. She’s a multi millionaire and has a business to run (she still owns at least one restaurant in Savannah, I don’t know if there’s more). Every time she runs her mouth she just digs in deeper. How can we miss her if she won’t go away?

Never in my life have I seen so many well off people just throwing pity parties every other day. Paula let her slip show. Whoops. Poor her.

“Forbes ranked Deen the fourth highest-earning celebrity chef. She made $4.5 million in 2008 and moved upward to banking $17 million in 2012, according to the magazine.”

Maybe she could just relax and enjoy the money.

Uh, isn’t she basically saying Mike Sam came out to tell everyone he is gay and can live with it and just wants acceptance…therefore accept me Paula Dean as having had come out about being a racist/bigot and I have had to live with the same type of questioning and displeasure as someone being gay?

So…Loud and Proud! I Paula Dean just don’t like Black People. There I said it. Take me as I am. I’m proud of me and love me!!!

Uh, Paula, do you have any PR people? Have they ever told you just to shut up?

I’m sorry to swim against the somewhat self-righteous tide seen here so far, but I grew up in the segregated South at roughly the same time Paula Deen did, and I can say from my entire long experience from then to now that there is virtually no white person of our generation who did not, when younger, use racist language, including the N word. We were taught the language and the mindset from the cradle. So when Deen admits to having used such language in the past, she is simply telling the truth, not only about herself but about a great many people. Many of us, not enough by any means but still many, learned better and saw more clearly as we experienced both the wider world and the narrowness of the one into which we came as children. I know I did, and I think Deen probably did too. I see no reason, other than sheer moral self-congratulation, for hounding her as some embodiment of evil for admitting to using language, in the past, that was all but universal in the culture in which she was born and raised.

Plus, if you follow her recipes, the food tastes really good.

re: #9 whitebeach

Oh please stop with this tired excuse. Her ugly, racist utterances and actions weren’t in her childhood but were, in fact, quite recent and many, many years after she should have known better. Considering her profession in such public venues, as opposed to a cloistered Southern small town existence, makes this excuse even more ridiculous. That she hasn’t learned a damn thing is so clearly evidenced by her own words right here. One, her description of the football player who just came out as openly gay. There’s only been one - look at her description and see if you can see the tell. Two, presenting herself as purely a victim rather than one who actually said and did the things she has acknowledged doing. She obviously still takes no responsibility as having done anything she regrets in the least, even if they were done in ignorance. Her only regret is having been outed as the racist and bigot that she is.

I was writing all kinds of positive and negative canons and weird inverted this and retrograde that and getting as spaced-out mathematically as I could and I was going "Wait a minute (laughs), who cares about that stuff?"
