Paula Deen

Wins Racial Lawsuit

That Destroyed Her

breaking news

0628_paula_deen_article_tmz_1In one of the most supremely ironic court decisions in a long time, a judge just threw out the racial discrimination claim filed against Paula Deen -- the very lawsuit that destroyed the famous chef.

A judge just ruled ... Lisa Jackson had no right to claim racial discrimination, BECAUSE SHE'S WHITE!  Any comments that Deen or her cohorts may have made had no legal consequence to her, because she's simply not the right color.

Jackson made a tenuous argument that someone in her family was bi-racial -- something that may not be true at all.  But the judge said even if it were true, she was at best an "accidental victim."

Short story -- Jackson ruined Paula with a bogus claim. 

The case goes on, because Jackson also claims sexual discrimination, and so far there's not basis to doubt that she's a woman.

Now let's see the Lame Stream Media announce this turn of events with all the publicity and fervor and endless commentary that they reported it in the first place.


Oh - never mind.

If blacks would stop playing the victim they would be much better off. We have a black president - you are not being held back.

I find it amazing what the press put this woman through, but owners of professional sports teams such as the Indians, Redskins, Braves and Chiefs go unchallenged, along with the owners of the multimillion dollar arenas the public usually pays to build and maintain. Maybe it's because we killed enough of them off in the beginning there aren't enough Native Americans to complain.

It's a word, that is used by many people and could be directed towards any race, .describes an ignorant, uneducated, foolish individual regardless of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, etc. With that being said, a lot more is going on in this world that should be focused on.. Get over it.

Don't worry Lisa Jackson. Even though your claim was thrown out by a judge, some idiots will probably be offering you a book deal and/or a reality show soon. I certainly hope not, but it will probably happen. You ruined someone's career without cause, for your own publicity and benefit. I wouldn't want to have your karma.

Great news, we all knew Paula would win or the case get thrown out. Jackson better have tens of millions to pay Paula. So many want to sue because of Racism. I hope Paula can SUE Jackson for billions.
