Paula Deen is racist. She is a racist with power. She is a racist who had the power to make the lives of her black employees miserable. Paula Deen's brand of racism is one of the more dangerous & insidious kinds of racism there is. And of all the discussions I've seen raised in the wake of this scandal, "Let's talk about how white women are unfairly persecuted for their racist views" is the most appalling & offensive I've seen yet. No one should be raising the feminist flag for this woman.
