At least if this is true-

Quote:
"I want a true southern plantation-style wedding. ... What I would like is a bunch of little n* to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around. Now that would be a true southern wedding, wouldn't it? But we can't do that now, the media would be on me."

Wow.

And it's like, she knows it's wrong, too. Not that it would excuse anything if she didn't know that was wrong.

Yes, of course. The media is the reason why this can't happen.

The subject of this, while grammatically correct, appears to imply that Paula Deen owns a racist.

She owns herself. Although there is a case to be made that she doesn't have control of all her faculties.

Did anyone read the whole complaint? Much of it is about Paula Deen's brother, and it's pretty bad.

Jeez its like a movie from the 50s!

Its going to be interesting to see if she can meet her burden of proof. These are crappy allegations, but they are just allegations.

Yeah I thought that too. I'm thinking though, it sounds like there's been plenty of witnesses. So that might be helpful.

Exactly. If it's true I hope they nail "the lady" and "Bubba" to the wall, but I wonder if it will it be seen as a problem that the plaintiff worked under these conditions for - what? - five years under such apparently untenable conditions? I don't know the circumstances, but it seems to me that their lawyers would jump right on that to call shenanigans.

This was where I picked up the story:

But surely all she wants is a world filled with butter, sugar and bacon....?

I'm really hoping she says she can't be racist, she is friends with Oprah

If she had only just prefaced all of that with, "I'm not racist, but..." then it would have been totally excusable. That is how it works, right?

Have any other employees or former employees come forward to confirm her claims?

That's what I'm wondering. The claims are really awful, but PD is a great lawsuit target in terms of wealth and visibility. Her public image is her entire empire.
