Et tu, Caesars?

The casino company just announced it will be KILLING its professional relationship with Paula Deen -- and will close all 4 of her restaurants that operate on its properties.

FYI -- Deen has restaurants in Harrah's Tunica near Memphis, Harrah's Joliet near Chicago, Harrah's Cherokee in North Carolina ... and a buffet at Horseshoe Southern Indiana.

But fear not hungry gamblers, Caesars says it intends to rebrand Paula's restaurants and reopen them in a couple of months.

Caesars says the move is in the company's "best interest" following the whole N-word scandal.

After everybody is done attacking Paula Deen for her racist past you, the people and media should attack Rappers and Black people that use the "N" word freely everyday. I'm sure that Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X would not stand for our generation using the "N" word when addressing each other in anger, fun or daily street slang. Last, any human being that uses the "N" word regardless of race, especially in public, has no respect for all of the equal rights movements, sacrifices and work in the past. Just say'n...

I want to address the N word that rappers often use. Little Wayne and other rappers are able to use the N word because the WHITE executives let them, Fact. All other derogatory, sexual orientation and ethnic slurs have been censored and banned by these same WHITE executives, FACT! White males are the biggest consumers of rap and the N word makes more money for these big radio stations and music companies, Fact!

65% of all commercial stations are owned by 4 companies. Everything you hear and see on radio and TV is screened and censored, FACT! Freedom of speech only applies for derogatory words on songs with the the N word. Every thing else is censored. If these WHITE executives can stop it they also can promote it. Let an artist use the word Kike, Spick, Chink or *** and see what happens. Do you think their are no non black artist who have tried to write those type of songs? You can't be that stupid. lol

I don't think Paula Deen hates blacks. Paula Deen was raised wrong. She was raised the old redneck southern way. She has to understand there is a whole world outside of the south that won't tolerate that kind of talk/behavior. Hopefully Paula Deen will learn from this and I hope other racist people will learn something, times have changed and you can't talk to any racial group in a negative fashion and not face controversy.

Ms. Deen does not represent southern womanhood. At best, she has created a cartoonish persona that represents more northern stereotypes of what "southern" is: exaggerated drawls, over use of "y'all" and all that faky, over the top charm are not typical or even admired characteristics and are perhaps even disavowed by many southerners, just like Ms. Deen's politics.

This is getting out of hand. Why don't you all read the section about Jamie Foxx's racist comments?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_foxx

Of course, he was given a free pass -- because he's black. GOD FORBID he was a white man making those comments about blacks.

Good!

Initially I gave Paula Deen some leeway. After all, she confessed to using the N-word 30 years ago,

But her dumb-ass statements shows just how ignorant she really is, and I would never ever ever eat her food or watch anything of hers on TV. Not that I ever did previously.

If she were from Maine, Michigan or Oregon, she would NEVER be treated this way. In America it is not only legal for hateful liberals to LYNCH Southern people, it is hip. Intelligent people do not participate in such silliness.
