Paula Deen

White Woman Suing Me

Is Also Smearing Me!

EXCLUSIVE

0624_paula_deen_03

Paula Deen has filed legal docs in the lawsuit that sent her career into a free fall -- claiming the woman who's suing her is trumping up racial allegations and now Paula is out for blood.

Lisa Jackson -- who claims she was forced to quit her job as manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House -- is asking for damages based on racial harassment, claiming she's African-American adjacent.   As for Jackson's proof she's got African-American ties, she points to her partner's biracial niece, whom Jackson claims is half Black.

According to Paula's new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Jackson's niece is NOT Black at all ... not even a little.  Paula says Jackson's partner has now admitted the niece is Hispanic -- NOT Black.

And Paula's especially pissed that Jackson alleged in her lawsuit that Paula used the N-word in connection with Bubba's wedding, yet has never offered a shred of proof that the word was used.

So now Paula wants the judge to throw the book at Jackson, fining her with sanctions for creating a bogus racial harassment case.

I am sick of this. These merchants drop Paula Deen because of her honest admission of using offensive language 30 years ago. Who is the same person they were 30 years years ago? No one. I said and believed things 30 years ago I would never say or believe today. Maybe they should take a look at the celebrities and sports figures for whom they carry products and drop those that in present day use offensive language, treat people like crap, and are basically criminals. A bunch of bullies egged on by slanted media reports.

Chile Please!    

There are just as many black Hispanics just as there are black Americans. The child can be born Hispanic but of African decent.

As a white person, does wearing clothing and accessories of light and white color make you a racist against blacks? I see black people wearing Gold and Silver aswell as dark and black clothes. Wouldn't that make them racist against whites too? Come on people get real!

If you are not from the south- you just don't get it. Never will. Keep thinking you all know best- we southerners just know how to live and if you don't like what's said- who cares. This whole society is going down the tubes , everything offends someone- so what!! I dont care if I offend you- you will live- so I hurt your feelings- you will live. Bunch a freaking whiny people.

It wasn't just the "n" word that got Paula in trouble. Letting Bubba treat employees as he did w/ porn and his oft used "n" word was a bad way to run her businesses. She needs to just sit back and chill now. Every time she opens her mouth she makes it worse.

Lisa Jackson was not fired, she quit. And in her deposition, UNDER OATH, she admits to NEVER hearing Paula use the n-word. Read the deposition TMZ. It is very enlightening. This Lisa Jackson woman is a piece of work and the judge SHOULD throw the book at her for what she has done to Paula.

"Real plantation wedding for Bubba, with only black "slave" waiters but who are very professional." Paula Deen's deposition transcript give or take a couple of words. The End.

If you want to read the actual court do***ents regarding this case then click and/or copy/paste the following link:
http://law.justia.com/lawsearch?query=paula%20deen&dataset=federal-case-law&federal-court-type=district-courts&state=georgia&court=gasdce

The following link (pay special attention to page 8 where Bubba basically admits to everything Lisa has stated and also states that he uses the N word often at the restaurant and until the lawsuit never had any regrets....also page 9 where it talks about video recording of Paula imitating a sex act on an éclair and using fool language). All are found on the following link.
http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/georgia/gasdce/4:2012cv00139/57733/165

Yes Paula, you are "lily white" and have nothing to apologize about....cue the sarcasm.

this is really starting to smell. I would think African Americans would be more than a little pissed off by this woman trying to extort money over issues that they really face. These issues don't need to be mudded by people who are just rying to make money.
