Apparently Paula Deen uses the N-word.
I actually love the fact that Paula Deen is keeping it real. You all know you’ve said some terrible, racist stuff when in your home and in the company of your friends. I’m gonna give Paula Deen credit for not being a liar like the rest of us. If you think about it, there is really nowhere for her to hide. Do you know how deep in the South you have to go to find a White woman who gets this excited about biscuits?
You have to drive clear through Alabama, stopping only to pick up a case of moonshine and a handle of molasses, take a hard left at Mississippi, trade whatever you’re driving in for a pickup truck and if you drive precisely 88 miles per hour directly into a Waffle House you will hear a whip-crack and magically be transported Back To the Future style to a “better time” when “things were simple” and “people knew their place”. Once there you will find Paula Deen and be able to taste the biscuits she’s so excited about.
You know slavery wasn’t that long ago, right? Harriet Tubman literally died 100 years ago. Paula Deen is 66. That means her grandfather knew people who were freed from slavery. It’s okay. If we lined up the white people who just dropped a N-bomb in sync with a Jay-Z lyric, the line would wrap around the planet twice. Are we gonna call all of them out too? Does it make Paula’s 36 variations on a recipe for Fried Chicken any less delicious? No it doesn’t. Trust me, she’s much more embarrassed and will be remembered more for this moment.
It isn’t a big deal people. Except for that “we should have people dress up as slaves for a wedding” part. That’s pretty racist. But don’t worry, she’ll be backpedalling on that one any second now…
