This is some bullshit! I like Paula Dean too! I really wanted to taste that buttermilk fried chicken. Now, she can choke on it. Really though, this is her just being herself. A lot of white southerners think of slavery as no big deal.
Paula Deen is an honest racist. The cooking show host is currently embroiled in a million dollar lawsuit over racist behavior at her Savannah restaurant. Deen and her brother Bubba allegedly threw around the N-word and told racist and sexist jokes that, so far, she doesn’t deny. But then she said something about wanting to hire black cater waiters to act as slaves at a Southern wedding, and she replied:
“The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie. I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America… after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War… It was not only black men, it was black women… I would say they were slaves.”
Totally honest. Completely crazy. White privilege, y’all.
I copied this verbatim from somewhere.
