PAULA DEEN unleashed the veritable shitstorm when she freely admitted to using the n-word and joking about African American men serving her like slaves at a testimony where she was sued for alleged racism and harassment in the workplace. (Pretty sure this one supersedes “alleged” by a longshot). When questioned if she had ever used the n-word, she replied “yes, of course”, as if we are all free to shout it from the rooftops nowadays.
Since hell hath no fury like the Twitterverse scorned, some absolute genius created the hashtag #PaulasBestDishes and are mercilessly lampooning her with racially-charged names for meals. Some of my favorites:
“Reparations Rice” (takes 400 years to cook)
“Cotton Pickin’ Fried Chicken”
“Welfare Chex Mix”
“Back of the Bus Biscuits”
“Paula Deen and LL Cool J just released a song called “Totally on Purpose Racist”
and last but not least, “Paula Deen can teach you how to properly segregate the egg whites from the colored yolk”
Nothing like a little racial humor to brighten everybody’s Wednesday night. Check out the whole hashtag conversation (or whatever you call it) right here. Now let’s place bets on how long it will be before she meets with some leaders of the NAACP for a little lesson in sensitivity.
In the meanwhile, you can comfortably count on MWTVG as a n-word free zone. In fact, I am so adverse to usage of the n-word that I am going to stop using the letter “N” entirely starting right ow.
