Didn't take you long to peep that one out, did it? But like Paula Deen, he's from that throwback era, so he has an excuse. <sarcasm=off>

You think Los Angeles is indicative of the rest of the US?

Interesting how I didnt say that at all. Love when people detract from the original point/question with subterfuge

As is the poster you're responding to.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Sure you did, you said you lived in L.A. and gays are more prejudiced than blacks. What did you mean to say?

Huh? In what world would someone interpret what he posted as saying that? He clearly said he's encountered more racists gays than racist straights. How did you get the notion that he was comparing black prejudice (homophobia I'm assuming from your intimation) to gay prejudice (racism from his actual words)? He was comparing racism in the gay community he's encountered to racism amount the straights he's encountered.

Is it that hard to argue with what he actually said rather than willfully misinterpreting what he said?

Let's butter back to Paula Deen y'all. She will not be pleased y'all talking about racism without including her.

Because his comment was in response to mine that raised this point, that Blacks were totally against the gays until Obama came out for gay marriage, Try reading the post he was responding to.

You can argue with this fanbase all day. If they dont want to see something, they will never see it.

Fanbase? This is Non-Tennis. Or did you mean fans of non-racists?

Re: Paula Deen: I Used the N-Word, but Don't Condone Racism

The Paula Deen Incident; you should know all that's being alleged before defending her

Daryl K. Washington Jun-29-2013



I've finally had the opportunity to review the complaint filed against Paula Deen. For one, many people have been making this incident about the "N" word only, but it's much more than that. I personally find it to be offensive whenever someone from another race is accused of using the "N" word they are somehow given a pass because of the use of the "N" word by some in the black communities. Let me be the first to say that I find the use of the word by anyone to be wrong. However, when it's used in a racist or insulting manner, it hurts more.

I think individuals who are trying to defend Paula Deen's use of the "N' word should probably familiarize themselves with all of the facts of the case against her. Just so you know, in case you didn't know, the person who initiated the complaint against Paula Deen and her brother is not "Black." She is a "white female" who was subjected to years of abuse and was finally fed up with her black employees being treated like animals, so stop thinking it was a black person complaining about Paula Deen's use of the N word. Furthermore, Paula Deen indicated that she used the N word over 20 years ago. That is not what's being alleged against her. She went as far as telling a guy he was as black as a blackboard. That lady is something else and I'm glad I never supported any of her ventures. I personally find it insulting that so many black people are coming to the defense of Paula Deen after reading what she and her family subjected their employees to. When I learned about the major companies dropping Paula Deen without being demanded to do so, I knew it was deep. The fact that any civil rights activist is supporting Paula Deen is insulting and is a slap in the face.

Here's a summary of some of the things being alleged against Paula Deen, her brother Bubba Hiers and the Deen business entities:

Summary:

Paula Deen, while planning her brother's wedding in 2007, was asked what look the wedding should have. She replied, "I want a true southern plantation-style wedding." When asked what type of uniforms the servers should wear, Paula stated, "well what I would really like is a bunch of little n*ggers 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;

Black staff had to use the back entrance to enter and leave restaurant;

Black staff could only use one bathroom;

Black staff couldn’t work the front of the restaurants;

Brother Bubba stated his wishes: “ I wish I could put all those n*ggers in the kitchen on a boat to Africa”;

Bubba asked a black driver and security guard "don’t you wish you could rub all the black off you and be like me? You just look dirty; I bet you wish you could." The guy told Bubba he was fine as is;

Bubba on President Obama: they should send him to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, so he could n*gger-rig it;

He shook an employee (Black again) and said” F your civil rights…you work for me and my sister Paula Deen;

Paula’s son Jaime's best friend managed the Lady & Sons restaurant. He threatened to fire all the 'Monkeys' in the kitchen. When Paula found out…she slapped him on the wrist and suggested that the employee visited Paula's $13,000,000 mansion so he felt special and could be massaged.

I feel Paula Deen, her brother and anyone who treats people poorly should not be given a free pass. I wonder if Paula is truly sorry that she used the "N" word or that she was reported by someone who looks just like her. I appreciate the lady having the courage to report Paula Deen. It's people like her and the videographer who leaked the 40% comments made by Mitt Romney who should be receiving the attention, not Paula Deen.

The point I was trying to make (which you CHOSE to ignore) was that many gays condemned the black community for being opposed to gay marraige while hypocritically having shunned black gays within their own community for decades. Doesn't make the actions of either group correct, it was merely an observation.

Really, don't even look at me...
