“A ha! Ahaha! *wipes tears* I’m sorry, sugah, I coulda sworn you said the one behind me was going to read. Could you imagine?”

When we last left Paula Deen, she was being sued after her brother and Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House co-owner allegedly sexually harassed kitchen manager Lisa Jackson whenever he wasn’t busy letting Paula plan him a wedding full of tap dancing niggers. Yup:

According to the court documents, Jackson states that she was appointed by Deen to handle the catering and staff for Bubba’s wedding in 2007, and she asked Deen what the servers should wear: “Well what I would really like is a bunch of little niggers to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around,” Jackson alleges Deen told her. “Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.”

And while that sounds like something most normal people would recognize they should never, ever admit to saying. Most normal people aren’t an old, rich, white southern woman like Paula Deen whose resistance to change hardens after every year and sugar pone pie stuffed with sugar ham. To her, those words were as genteel and cordially as a game of gin rummy over mint juleps as the Negroes work themselves in the field before being chained to the hogs. My those were such splendid times. Splendid times Paula Deen doesn’t mind recalling in the middle of a legal deposition where I’ll assume her lawyer was too busy fighting off blindness to tackle her after eating a donut from her purse. “I call it a Fudgeton Creme.” Radar reports:

When asked by Lisa’s Atlanta-based attorney if she’d ever used the N-word, Paula responded, “Yes, of course,” and gave examples of times she used the offensive term.
In terms of telling racist jokes, Paula said, “It’s just what they are — they’re jokes… most jokes are about Jewish people, rednecks, black folks…I can’t determine what offends another person.”
And when asked if she wanted black men to play the role of slaves at a wedding she explained she got the idea from a restaurant her husband and her had dined at saying, “The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie.
“I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America… after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War… It was not only black men, it was black women… I would say they were slaves.”

Look, I’m never looking to play comedy police, but here’s a pro tip for Paula: If you want to pass racism off as a joke, try not to follow that up by saying, “Hey, you know what was a lovely era? Slavery.” That almost never goes over well. Outside of a GOP convention.

    I think Paula’s been playing too much “Bioshock Infinite” and getting the wrong idea.

  2. Cock Dr

    Love it when people are honest.
    Now the oblivious old school racist will be punished thanks to our new information age. Have at it.

  3. “Someone” is going to be really pissed that you got to use the full N word in your post, but he can’t use it in the comments!

  4. The Illuminati Did It

    In Parla’s defense, I have used the term “nasty fat old bitch” more than a few times. “Oh, hey Mom”.

    “I don’t see the fuss,” Deen said. “Back in my day, I turned a few heads, and mercy, if it happened to be a darkie head, well, the local white boys would just lynch and lynch and lynch him.”

  6. Cut Paula a little slack, she grew up in a different time. Back in the 80′s it was N-word-this and N-word-that all day long. Shine my shoes, don’t look at white women. The 1880′s were rough.

  9. Wow, she can’t really be that dumb to actually admit this?

    • That’s the thing about racists, they’re massively fucking stupid and/or blind because they really do think they aren’t racists, hence the awesome disconnect in the “of course” in her response. People like Deen have the arrogant mindset that since they wouldn’t actually physically harm anyone who’s of a different race, therefore they can’t be a racist – - but they totally don’t see what’s wrong with putting those same people in degrading situations for their own amusement, or get what harm there is in addressing them in a degrading fashion. Part of the problem is that other people tend to be sort of incredulous and shocked silent about this behavior and if the offender is a celebrity, a lot of excuses get made for them because people don’t like to be disillusioned and tend to deny that someone they admire might be a raging asshole.

      Because no one’s smacked this bigoted bitch across the face and yelled, “What the righteous fuck do you think you’re doing, you racist asshole?” before, she probably thinks that everyone else really has the same outlook but just isn’t as refreshingly open and honest about it as she is.

        You have identified yourself as to what you are; you are a stupid reverse racial slug. You have an incurable problem. Simply stated, ignorance can be corrected with valid information; stupid is permanent. That reality is clear in your case due to the repetitive use of very crude language.

    Hey, isn’t that the woman from “Total Recall” just before her head splits open and turns into Ah-nold?

    Wow. I can’t believe I spent all this time masturbating to a f*cking RACIST.

  12. Slappy Magoo

    To think I’ve spent all this time masturbating to a racist…

  13. Sam

    Old southern ladies are like polar bears. Cute on TV or behind glass but when you get up close and try to hug one they turn out
    to be horrible racists/murderous brutally fiece wild animals.

  14. She should learn the other N-word; Nuance.

  15. Paula: Good evening, Sherriff. Sorry about the “Up yours, nigger”. I hope this apple pie will in some small way say thank you for your ingenuity and courage in defeating that horrible Mongo.
    Bart: Well, uh… thank you, much obliged. Good night.
    Paula: Of course, you’ll have the good taste not to mention that I spoke to you.

  16. Kankles

    I just realized she is not the chick from Golden Girls.

  17. Mike Walker

    I like how he links to Radar instead of the National Enquirer where the story originated. Can’t get too judgemental based on an Enquirer story, I guess.

  18. Johnny Rebel

    Who cares? Blacks are racist as shit.

    The white guilt overload here kills me every time I visit. You people must donate so much time and money to the black community to feel as bad as you do for racism & the shortest period of slavery in the history. /end sarcasm

  19. people sure seem to spend a lot of time giving a big fuck when white folks use naughty words.

    • ChaCha

      I, for one, am absolutely devastated. Hopefully, she will issue a sincere, heartfelt apology that Al and Jesse will accept after proper consideration, and I can go back to being only vaguely aware of her existence.

  20. Someone Else

    To be fair, Radar has cut the quotes to best get hits which the superfish is reporting. She likely is a racist, but it might be helpful to read all of what she said. Oh, more bikinis, less social commentary.

  21. Forrest

    you know: fiddy, usher, jamie foxx, eddie murphy, kanye, the “hot in here” guy, that lil feisty dude who hangs out with the biebs, and many others use the n-word. i hear it so often in many raps songs and in movies. if they use it, it must be OK???

    • Trayvon

      n-word please!!

    • ilikesake

      Why do people always use that stupid argument whenever caucasions use the word nigger in a derogatory way? “If the rappers say it why can’t we??” So, do you allow rappers to influence all of your arguments? That fact is people like Paula and Ann Coulter, who recent;y made a fuss over a black female pilot, are racist because of the ridiculous context in which they say the word and the crap that comes before and after it. It’s completely offensive and unnecessary how they describe black people, and using the word is the icing on the cake, pun intended. Example: saying all Arabs are carpet-flying terrorists is bad enough. Then saying Arabs are carpet-flying terrorist sand niggers is on a whole different level of hate. Just my opinion

    Paula needs to go eat a couple dozen donuts and just have herself a little diabetic coma.

    Whats that vagina looking thing on her throat?

  24. A bad mix of old age, lack of a brain-mouth filter, bad diet, inbreeding, brain damage and growing up in the wrong part of the country. Hey God, can we have James Gandolfini back in exchange for her?

  25. Do you really think that saying “The N-Word” means that you said something less offensive?

    Morons. The lot of you.

  26. anonym

    “n-gger” came about because “negro” was hard to pronounce by slave owners.

    Just like “nucular” vs “nuclear”. Negro is a tongue twister.

  27. Paula Deen eats too much like a black woman to be racist.

  28. anonn

    So what? She is Southern Woman, that is how she grew up and was raised, everyone needs to hop off and leave her alone.

    • Superman Skeptic

      No. That’s stupid. She was coming of age during the Civil Rights era, not the Antebellum South.

  29. When did Floppers Mcdougal start using the N word?

  30. Xyz2

    I just knew all along this bitch was a n word spewing cunt. From the jump and I tried not to watch her show, but I chose to believe she was better than that.

    I’m the fool, I guess.

    What a surprise, a 67 year old white woman from Georgia is racist!

    • You know what’s funny? I just looked up her political affiliation. Democrat. Ha. I’m sure that won’t be printed in any of the articles talking about this n-word gem that (allegedly) came out of her stupid mouth.

      BTW I live in Georgia and racism is NOT the norm. There’s one known racist in our neighborhood of ~200 famililes and he’s openly disliked by most people for his views. Funny how stereotypes are not magically always true!

  32. That is a false statement that you have headlined, Paula DID NOT say that you all ought to be taken to court for defirmation of character. This is all a bunch of crap, amazing how the media can add what they want and so many NIGGERS eat it up. If you want to know the term for a nigger look it up in the dictionary and for those of you who are two much of a nigger- IT IS A IGNORANT INDIVIDUAL. I’m tired of the double standard and yeah I know you are all going to say that not all blacks say it and we can say it because we don’t use it as an insult, I DON’T GIVE A CRAP- no one should be allowed to use it, not in music, movies or casual conversation. Paula in her statement, yes, admitted to using the word, but was in her past, bloody hell she is a white southern woman in her 60′s of course she used it in her past. STOP WITH THE DOUBLE STANDARD!!!!
