As a nation, we've been asked to forgive lots of things: Bill Clinton's inappropriate behavior in the Oval Office, Anthony Weiner's and Mark Sanders' infidelity, Reece Witherspoon's disorderly conduct, Chris Brown's abusive behavior, and of course, Michael Vick's dog fighting. Being a racist is bad but should be covered under our !st Amendment rights, shouldn't it? Why is this such an unforgivable sin?

Great article. Her interview with Matt Lauer didn't help her. I think she needs to give it some time and a 'good' PR person. I is what I is didn't cut it for me. I am what I am and let it be that.
Have you not seen the new Wendy's pretzel burger? I hear it has 680 calories!
Dang, I never tried fried eggs on my burger; thanks for the cooking tips!
my_girl_sara, I have not seen the new Wendy's pretzel burger. I'm sure it's a take off from Paula's donut burger. It's sick what these celebrity chefs and restaurants promote. They obviously don't care to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Only $ matter.
Yes, an apology should count for something, although it was probably prompted.
So true, Flashe13. I would never use that term, prejudice or not. I find the south strange with it being stuck in the days of old as I come from the DC metro area where we don't even think of "color." When I moved to NC, racism was so foreign to me.
If you haven't seen this. It's all so odd. I would also check out the deposition. It's not about being PC. It's deeper than that.
At first I also gave her the benefit of the doubt and I'm all for calling it like you see it but this is clearly racist and occurred last year, not decades ago. huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/21/paula-deen-racism_n_3480720.html
That seems so silly to be prejudice because crime was committed by another ethnicity. If she was held at gunpoint by white men, would she then hate her own race? I guess people are strange that way though. :/
True, but we also must realize that racism and prejudices are not of a certain race. They are found in all races.
Prejudice against blacks has existed for years and no I don't think she would be prejudice against her own race if she had of been held at gun point by white guys.
Freedom of speech was not intended to be severe. A line has to be drawn somewhere. Can a man walk up to a little girl and say sexual things to her without being arrested for being a child predator, sexual pervert, and other names? No.
