I’ve stated that my family and I are big foodies, we love food, we love foodie-type shows…. that’s why it was quite shocking to hear about Paula Deen.
If you aren’t aware of who Paula Deen is, she is the sweet southern grandma you wished you had to make you fried buttermilk chicken, homemade donuts, and biscuits and gravy. Well, that was before this.
My girls loved Paula Deen, she reminded them of my Mom; always laughing and saying y’all. However, what has come out of Paula’s mouth allegedly and admittedly in the past, my Mama would not tolerate. If you read the deposition from Jackson v. Deen it’s shocking stuff.
I’m always perplexed when people I assume have big hearts and good intentions, fall short. Why don’t people consider their actions… their words? Why would someone say she liked the look of an era, which happens to be one of the ugliest eras in America’s history? WTF?
I’m not a racist, but I use racially insensitive words– say what?
It makes me sad. Here’s what is even more upsetting to me, people making light of hateful comments on Twitter. There is a hashtag of racist tweets in the name of Paula Deen? I don’t understand why people would keep it going…
:::SIGH::: I don’t know… guess I’m still waiting on the world to change.
