I’M SO TIRED OF THIS, ANYONE ELSE?……………..
OK….is it JUST ME or do people need to GET A LIFE???
I don’t know about you, but….REALLY?……Who Cares?…..OK….. SO….She said a “Supposed Racial Word”……A word that has been a *Double Edged Sword* for ever…….and NOW…after ALL THE CRAP & Smudge that is on TV & The News……Everyone is acting like she said something we never……ever…..ever….Heard before???
Look, I get the whole uproar about the *N* word, I have a Kazillion ……HHHHMMM……let’s see……African American friends, and every time something like this happens, I say the same darn thing,……
“Look, you want all the same rights as all, and WE ALL Should, then you can’t go using the *N word amongst you all, then say, NO ONE ELSE can use that word”????……. Enter…Double Edge Sword…….Stop hanging on to that one word……and then say only black folk can use it. *Not Fair.* It cause’s way to much Turmoil….*THE PAULA DEAN STORY*
I really don’t recall a WHITE person yelling….”LAWSUIT LAWSUIT”……because we were called White, Honkey, Or whatever. One person brought up a good point in his comment on this post, we have way to many PRESSING issues as Black Americans, hunger, peace, addiction, mental illness, and much more.
What happen to just being *HUMAN BEINGS*……Looking beyond one’s Color or race, one’s religion, who they vote for, if their GAY OR STRAIGHT??? Why can’t we just be KIND to one another and treat each other with GENEROSITY and RESPECT, No matter who or what color is on our skin????…….ISN’T THAT THE WAY IT WILL BE IN GOD’S KINGDOM???
That is the day I truly PRAY FOR……… WHEN WE WILL ALL BE AS ONE!!
**LIFE IS WAY TO SHORT…….AND SOON…..NONE OF THIS STUFF IS GOING TO MATTER~~THINK ABOUT THAT………….

Paula Deen is pressing for the partial dismissal of the lawsuit that has toppled her empire — and she’s using the Supreme Court’s Proposition 8 ruling to do it.
Attorneys for Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers, contend that a woman suing them on the grounds of racial discrimination, among other claims, doesn’t have legal standing to file the claim because she is white.
In a filing Monday, the attorneys pointed to the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Prop 8 case, Hollingsworth v. Perry, in which the court said anyone suing in federal court must have standing.
The attorneys contend that plaintiff Lisa T. Jackson cannot, as a white woman, claim racial discrimination. They argue that the line of questioning that led to Deen’s admission that she has used the N-word in the past shouldn’t even have been part of the case.
It’s hard to imagine how the lawsuit could do more damage to Deen than it already has — her N-word admission already cost Deen her relationship with the Food Channel and half a dozen endorsement deals, and the planned publication of a book has been canceled. Even if a judge agrees that the case should be partially dismissed, that won’t undo the harm to Deen’s image.
But attorneys for Hiers and the restaurant he and Deen own are pressing on.
Jackson has claimed that she was offended by racial slurs she heard while working at the restaurant, and that she has “biracial nieces” whose father is African-American. Because of this, she contends, “derogatory remarks regarding African Americans are even more personally offensive to Ms. Jackson than they would be to another white citizen.”
But the attorneys for Deen and Hiers contend that according to depositions in the case, there was only one “biracial” niece, who was related to Jackson’s partner. The niece was half Hispanic, not half African-American, and Jackson’s partner has had no relationship with her in five years, according to the defense.
