    Along with the allegations of racism, Jackson s complaint accuses Hiers of making inappropriate sexual comments and forcing her to look at pornography with him. The complaint also said Hiers violently shook employees on multiple occasions and came to work in an almost constant state of intoxication. Jackson s complaint also accuses Deen of racism and enabling Hiers behavior. According to the complaint, Deen and other managers at her companies ignored Jackson s attempts to discuss Hiers behavior.... As evidence that Deen holds such racist views herself, the complaint details an incident that occurred when Jackson was in charge of food and serving arrangements at Hier s wedding in 2007. The complaint includes a comment Deen allegedly made when asked by Jackson what type of uniforms the servers should wear at the wedding. ........... 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, the lawsuit claims Deen said. 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.

    THE WOMAN WHO IS SUING PAULA DEEN IS WHITE! THIS IS OVER RECENT INCIDENTS.. NOT ABOUT SOME 30 YEARS AGO.. USING THE N WORD... . LOOKS LIKE DEEN IS A RACIST AND HER BROTHER IS A DISGUSTING DRUNK AND A SEXIST PIG! ....waiter Lisa Jackson is suing Deen and her brother Earl "Bubba" Hiers for exposing Jackson to violent, sexist, and racist behavior while working in their restaurants. In the complaint, Jackson is described as a white female. However the complaint noted she has biracial nieces, so derogatory remarks regarding African Americans are even more personally offensive to Ms. Jackson than they would be to another white citizen. According to the complaint, Jackson began working for Uncle Bubba s Oyster House, a restaurant run by Hiers, in early 2005 and left in August 2010 due to the inappropriate behavior she said she was subjected to in her time there.

    If this happened years ago, why is it such a big deal now? Everyone makes mistakes, so people need to get over it already. Is it better she told the truth or should she have lied about it? I think if she would of known telling the truth was gonna make all this happen to her, she would of lied about it! I feel for her. I don't think she said it to hurt anyone.

    If Paula Deen was such the Racist as the Liberal Media and the Liberals maker her out to be why hasn't anything else new come to light about her? It has been over a month now and the Liberal Media still has a Hard On for Paula Dean. With all the hype the Liberal Media has reported over it someone else would have came forward by now saying Paula Dean was racist towards them or something. So this goes to show you that she is NOT A racist.

    Come on people!! There are SO many more important things to worry about in this world then someone using the N word years ago. Actually even if it was more recent and was a one time commnet...wouldnt bother me much. It is a word!..nothing more. You cant tell me that anyone in their lifetime has never used a racial or derogatory word, even in innocense. People call other people retard, spaz, dork, geek. polock, jew, chink, Mick, Dago....and so on all the time in the real world. Most of it is meant in a joking way...admittedly though many times in a deragatory way but we make no bid deal of it unless it is a celebrity. It is just words! They have no power outside of what you give them. When I think of all the press and money that has been involved in this Paula Deen incident it makes me sick. People are more aware of her saying the N word years ago then they are of the starvation, lack of sanitary living conditions, the destruction of the rainforest, human and animal suffering going on in the world right now. It makes me sick that this is anyones Priority worrying about something said that did not effect anyones health or well being.

    Exactly! It's about more than the n-word, but unfortunately, the average person won't read beyond what they see in a headline.

    I am so TIRED of the double standard!! I'm white and lived in Little Rock, AR for several years where there's a very large population of black people. I had to move out of that city because there was so much racism against WHITES there, that I felt it wasn't safe for my white kids to grow up there. Everywhere we went, people were extremely rude to us, and more than once, I heard a black person talk about how they wanted to mess up the white ***** while looking sideways at me. I was called a cracker many times, and had things thrown at the windows of my apartment. I've never known a segregated America, and I've never treated someone badly based on the color of their skin. Yet every day when I lived there, I was treated like I was the enemy, and I've done NOTHING to deserve it. Of course nothing ever happened to anyone who did these things to me or my children because the people making those comments and doing those things were black! If I had said even ONE thing back to them, I would have paid severely for it. I will NEVER live in that city again, and will be looking at the demographics of the population before I ever move anywhere again. It was a horrible experience, and I don't want to risk going through that again.

    I wonder if we will ever come back to the middle--first the pendulum swung towards everyone using racial slurs, now if anyone ever thinks they perceive that you said something even POSSIBLY off color (pun intended) you are ostracized. Time to let the pc stuff go folks! i think libra 108 is right--words only hurt if you let them!

    I was watching the Neelys one day on food netwrok. Gina referred to herself as BROWN SUGAR!!!! I was uncomfortable with that and I was in my own living room. WHY wasn't that show taken off!!!! WHY is it ok for some and not others!!!!!! Anyone want to answer that???? We need to boycott food network and ALL the chefs affiliated with it and stop buying their products that line the store shelves. Paula has been treated unfairly, for telling the truth.

    Sorry, this just isn't the post-racial society y'all think it is. I think an apology would have sufficed, if she actually meant it. I think it was a little overkill to snatch all her endorsements, unless it was found that she's still doing such things. Also, not every black person uses the n-word nor approves of it's rampant use in hip hop culture.

    It appears to be a double standard. Blacks can use the n word but white people can't. Words can only hurt if you let them.
