Paula Deen, a country ass 65 y/o women, from RURAL Georgia has been accused of allowing the n-word to be used in her businesses. This would include, 'allowing' her AA employees to say things like, "...nigger please!" or "..niggah, get yo' black ass BACK to work...", if the AA's I've worked with are ANY basis for example.
She's being sued by an past employee who waited YEARS and years to complain that PD used the term nigger, while discussing a wedding, either hers, or her sons. PD was married in 2004, her son Jaimie in 2005. So this employee was SO wronged, SO upset by things at PD's company, it took her 8 or 9 years to break the stupor and complain.
Because of this, Deen has lost her gig at Food Network, where her numbers were flagging anyway. This is good news fior FN, they can fire her with little backlash, or SO they thought! They ARE catching hell, because PD admits it and says it was said in jest in the company of her AA employees, some of whom she's owned for years!! Look, some more sick racial humor.
But FN is catching hell from the viewers, because they think she should get another chance. I think FN will show their liberal, stupid NYC roots and kow tow to the race baiters. Too bad you can be fired pre-emptively in 21st Century America. If FN was smart, they'd keep her because her numbers would go up, people like waiting for ANOTHER shoe to drop. She'll get fired, corporate America has no balls.
But I can't be fired, nor sued, for my opinions...YET! So here goes.
I am so Mother Fucking sick of turning on my TV, radio or computer connection and hearing that lilting, fake ass, faggot / queer voice that 99% of gaaay men use, that I could JUST fucking PUKE!!!
I was watching the news / weather and the story was...Chia Seed Oil, as a dietary supplement...for weight loss and strength. But the 'technician' who was 'running' the test [and in what GD universe does a 'health technician' run a fucking drug trial!?] has 'that voice' and I'll be damned if BOTH of the test subjects running on treadmills didn't have 'that voice'.
As I steamed slowly, over not being able to escape 'that voice', the next story that came on was about a shooting, 75 or 80 miles away from me in Greenville, NC on Fri. The reporter doing the follow up on said shooting, is standing in front of our local Ch. 14, cable TV station, and he's got the WORST version of 'the voice' in local memory!! This kid is starting to BURTHT into flameth on camera, every time he appearth on the tube!
So here's my question, when MINORITIES act like 'stereotypes' they hate us to point out, and call us racists and homophobes, but when dey dun abtholutely WALLOW in that thtereotype, muddah fuckah, den it's all OK, or maybe even FABulouTHHHHHH?!!
Beyond that, WhoTF actually talks like that? Seriously, I've worked with guys, or went to school with gay guys, but not until they came out, did they affect that voice. I've worked with minorities of color, and they speak plainly, until they are in a GROUP.
It's just THEM taking on their idea of what they 'should' sound like, to the ultimate degree. And most people are sick of having it shoved in their faces, then being called names for the acts / words of others. Here's my suggestion for the racial or sexual minorities of America, from me and in the name of maligned people like Paula Deen.
If you DON'T want to be called nigger, spic, coon, nigger, fag, queer or whatever your most hated group name is, then STOP living DOWN to the stereotype!! If you DON'T want to be called names like those, turn yo' GD hat 'roun', pull yo fuckin' pants up, stop talking like a 12 y/o girl, quit driving low riders to job interviews while wearing white tank top t-shirts and hair nets, quit joining gangs with Spanish names, blah, blah blah.
And for THAT matter, on the flip WHITE side, if you DON'T want to be called redneck, grit, country, farmer boy, trailer trash, etc., then don't wear your 'Git ' er Done' hat to church, stop driving your 4x4 with 22" tires through the GD drive-thru at the Bojangles / White Castle nearest YOU, stop having kids by anything with big hooties and a pulse, simply because they HAVE big hooties and a pulse, and if you aren't going to stop, then quit complaining that you don't like the fact that people act like they're playing a banjo, mouthing the theme from "Deliverence", when you go visit your 14 y/o GF, driving that stupid 4x4 on the way home from WORK!!
Grow the hell UP America, stop acting like the bad TV versions of your ethnic or sexual preference group, and maybe I won't have to talk shit about you again.
