Three baileys in tonight I decided to get the courage to talk about what the media seems to think is a big deal about Paula Deen. Here’s the story, she said it…years ago. She said so and so was “black as this board” does that make her a racist? Seriously? You think THAT makes her a racist? Get a grip people. You mean to tell me when someone says “He/She was “white as a ghost” is racist too? What has this world come too?
What about the song “Thriftshop” by Macklamore he says in his song “that’s a cold ass honkey” should I take offense because I’m white? No! Has anyone boycotted THAT song? No! What about, the rappers who sing about the “N” word? Do we boycott THOSE songs? No! Why is it we have to single out Paula Deen for this? Please explain this to me. One of my friends on Facebook recently said to me “what about Chris Brown, Kayne West, Snoop Dog, 50 Cent, who all use ‘that word’…its a double standard…if you or I say it, we are racist, but they throw it around like its nothing…Is it offensive?? Then NO One should use it” He makes a valid point.
I’m not saying I support Paula Deen, nor am I saying she’s wrong. What I’m saying is it’s such a shame that America has come to this point where we all just look for stuff to hurt people with. I’m pretty sure Paula Deen meant no harm in what she said. The mere fact that her advertisers are pulling from her, is just terrible. They’re the one’s who are racist. They’re the one’s who are separating the color in this world. To me, the only people who see color are those making a big deal about it. Wake up people, we live in world where there is no color, only the colors of the rainbow…and rainbows hold no judgement.
The whole “Median with the Deen” lies in the middle. If you want to blame her for being racist then maybe you should look in the mirror and decide whether or not you’re part of the society who helps create the color separation in this world. For me, I see no color… perhaps we should all do the same.
Until Next Time,
