Yet another store that will not see any of my business. This whole thing is blown out of reality.

Wow, like they'll feel the loss of your business.

Hey, here's a great idea get together with your friends and picket the stores.

All 10 of you will make a very strong ripple, just like a fart in a pool.

Chik Filet should hire her to be their spokesman (spokesperson). A mecca of Southern Fried Christian values.

Yep, in church on Sunday and cursing blacks on Monday. Some even curse blacks in church, plenty of good Christian values in the south.

Yes she called the man who held a knife to her throat a racist name. He deserved it.

I guess JCP still does not want to make money.
A joke, retail will not let people decide who they want to endorse products. Oh well, keep the corporate welfare alive.

Retail will stock products they feel are in the stores' best interests. They're not going to go broke by dropping one line of products. JCP is more important to JCP than Deen is.

People don't decide anything when it comes to business it is decided by the board.

Now how the heck did you get corporate welfare into this story?

This is a story about what happens when a celeb is a racist and the consequences of their actions and words.

Read the 149 page deposition. Why Deen is being dropped has nothing to do with the N word being used once...nothing. It has everything to do with operational procedures, lack of understanding of harassment policies (because her companies don't have any), her own admitted 'old Southern way, her awareness of pornography on the job and exposing others to it, her ignorance of the law, etc... She even hired professionals to come in and investigate complaints but didn't like it when their report reflected serious problems over decades of that 'old Southern way'. She is a serious liability to any company who carries her products that could eventually cost them some big bucks. Read the deposition...her own words.
01:21 PM on 07/01/2013
They REFUSE to read it!! It's as if THEY think if the depo doesn't exit. It doesn't jive with their thinking, so they REFUSE to READ. The refusal to read it won't force them to use their critical thinking skills.

Is whitie offensive to you? Is it derogatory? Do people get fired for saying blackie? Get my point? You were saying...I'm not sure what you were saying...

I know that this has probably been said somewhere in this thread, but black people use the N word to each other every day. It is no big deal...unless a white person utters it...talk about your double standards.

Your rant sweeps all Blacks under this impression with one wide stroke. FYI, there is a huge population of Blacks that don't use the word because of it's derived, derogatory insinuation. I wish more people thought outside the box; thought for themselves, not jump on the wagon, 'if they can say it why not I', and not believe everything posted by mass media.

Some cannot THINK for themselves. It's easier for them to believe what they're being told. Blissful ignorance.

And who care anymore about Paul Deen. She is a big lib.
The companies that are dumping her are just exercising their right in a free society!
10:08 AM on 06/29/2013
Wrong...she is not a lib and is being supported by Republicans.

Wrong, she is a big lib. She contributed many bucks to help Obama in his campaign. I hope she suffers for her choices.

I think the Food Network plus all other networks plus every single retail business in Ameica need to take depostions from every single employee, and purge themselves of anyone who has ever used any sort of racial or ethnic or regional, political or religious epithet, joke, slur, sarcasm, or bias.(This should include "comedians" and "rappers" who feel they can say anything about anybody, no matter how hurtful or politically incorrect.
Those found guilty shoud be publicized in every form of social media, print media, TV and radio.
Perhaps they should be forced to wear armbands......
The Golden Rule needs to be reinforced; of course it is WRONG to say mean and offensive things about and to another person!

I think that every person ,weather they be black,white ,yellow ,pink or green,that has ever used the N-word in the past fifty years, should self inflict some kind of horrible punishment on themselves.Perhaps you could deny yourself from doing business with companies like wal mart ,Penneys QVC, Targets ,Home cooking channel or any other of the fairweather panderers that you love so much. If you want Paula Dean to suffer for a for 25 year old mistake,then why not the rest of us?

Daniel Tosh makes racist jokes everyday on national television, do stores threaten to not sell his DVDs? Chris Rock makes racist comments about white people, why does no one call foul on that? Is it becase she is a white southerner that there is this huge double standard?

yeah, and look at Polanski, he became even MORE of a sacred cow in Hollywood after raping a 12 year old and being Unapologetic for it- but Paula does something wrong decades ago and the world won't forgive her and the companies ban her- hypocrisy is so freaking disgusting.

But according to Whoppie Goldberg it wasn't "rape rape".

http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2009/sep/29/roman-polanski-whoopi-goldberg

Hollywood has rallied behind Roman Polanski after his arrest in Switzerland over the weekend, with the actor Whoopi Goldberg suggesting that whatever he was guilty of it wasn't "rape-rape".

More hypocrisy.
07:26 PM on 06/28/2013
Now, the second best thing to do is to boycott the stores that take Paula's stuff off the shelves. The best thing is to take all your kiddies into the store, and let them sort out which items you should buy.Walmart, Pennies, and the rest of these are just racist boxes, and need to be driven out of business.
