Paula Deen's Son

Mom's NOT Racist!!!

She Bought Me Hank Aaron Pajamas

6/25/2013 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Paula Deen's sons are adamant ... their mother is NOT a racist ... and they have the Hank Aaron pajamas to prove it!!!

Jamie and Bobby Deen just appeared on CNN's "New Day" ... and told Chris Cuomo, "Neither one of our parents ever taught us to be bigoted towards any other person for any reason."

"This is so saddening to me because our mother is one of the most compassionate good-hearted empathetic people that you'd ever meet," Bobby said.

Then Jamie told the story about the Hank Aaaron pajamas -- explaining how when he was 7-years-old, he was a big Hammerin' Hank fan ... and before he had his tonsils removed his parents gave him some H.A. PJs.

Jamie says when his parents gave him the pajamas ... they told him about the challenges Hank faced "because of his color" and explained that people deserved to be judged on their merits, not skin color.

Jamie says the lesson that came with the pajamas stuck with him for the rest of his life ... and that's how he sleeps at night.

Nothing against Jamie and Bobby, except that they need to stay out of this.

Paula can say this happened long ago all she wants, but the truth is that it's continuing and there is massive evidence of same for anyone who actually takes the time to be informed before posting.

In addition, Paula Deen's inappropriate behavior should also be called into scrutiny. What about her riding on the back of Robert Irvine with a glass of red wine in one hand or LICKING his bare chest at an event? What about her emulating a sexual act on a chocolate eclair? What about her dropping her pants at another event? What about her saying "Motherf------" on air? Google it. It's there. It's FACT, and I've seen much of it.

It is time for Paula Deen to retire and quit acting like a horny old woman.

Sorry kiddo. Your mom's videos say a whole lot more about her attitudes towards blacks than her choice of PJs for you when you were 7

This whole n word talk really pisses me off its 2013.
Come on the word ****** makes black people MILLIONS OF DOLLARS if not billions.I actually find it offensive when black people say hey ***** what's up.
It's a word.
I have not herd of black people committing suicide, because there homie who's white says hey *****.
The word ******,*****
It the stupid mentally to throw your hands up and keep bitching over a word.
Ask lil Wayne or ice cube or jay z, if the word is offensive.

I think this is all a publicity stunt to get Paula a new cooking show on OWN and also remind you of just how magnaminous (is that a word?) Oprah is.

They will say that as she is their meal ticket and if her so called empire suffers so will they. I read an article that when she was in the restaurant she was filthy, picked her nose handled food, ate chicken out of the garbage. No way would I ever eat at her restaurant.
