What is your opinion of Paula Deen being fired by the Food Network for her admission that she used the N word and wanted to make a plantation era party complete with black men dressed as servants? One the one hand, she is a 60 plus year old Daughter of the South, growing up during the beginnings of the Civil Rights era, and probably picked up some of the language from her parents. On the other hand, she probably should have did a bit of thinking before she spoke. We don’t know what’s in her heart, so we have to believe that her apology is sincere. Hopefully this will make her a better person in the end.
