Paula Deen Says ‘N-Word’ And Wants To Hire Pretend Black Slaves


She is just breaking my heart. Oooo, chiiiild. I thought I had found someone who loves butter as much as I do. Apparently Paula has been having some legal trouble in which her employee is suing her for $1.2 million due to Paula’s racism and her brother Bubba’s sexual harassment. During her legal deposition she admitted to using the N-Word, telling racist jokes and that she wanted to hire Black cater-waiters to play slaves because she got the idea from attending a similar party.

Paula said, “The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie. I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America… after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War… It was not only black men, it was black women… I would say they were slaves.”

According to Radar, when she was asked if she used the N-word she said, “Yes, of course.” Of course. Oh, of course a horse has a lot of remorse a duh duh duh. WHAT? Of course? It appears that Paula doesn’t understand why any of these things are wrong. She seems to see the world through rose-tinted-racist-glasses and expects everyone else to.

When asked about telling racist jokes she said, “It’s just what they are — they’re jokes…most jokes are about Jewish people, rednecks, black folks…I can’t determine what offends another person.” Yes, you can. Will a joke at the expense of Black people offend my Black employee? Probably.
