    I think people need to stop judging Paula Deen, and Mr Jackson needs to stay out of it. She already owned up to what she said and it is not any worse than what many people have done. The Food network and all the stores talking about dropping her and her products are wrong. This whole thing is getting way out if hand, it is a shame that we Americans are acting this way.

    Why is it that you don't write when she stated those racial slurs when you're showing a picture of her or talking about her? Most of the time Anderson Cooper makes it sound like she just said them now. Why don't all those trashing her on TV now go under oath and state that they've never joked about or said a racial slur. I sure have and also have heard racial slurs against me growing up. It sucks but it happens. Get over it. You guys act as if you're so clean but how many of you would tell the truth in court?

    Are you freeeeekin' kidding me? Lest we forget Jesse Jackson's visit to "Hymietown?"

    Irony all over the place between the stories of Paula Deen and the Zimmerman trial - and to put the cherry on the top, we have Mr. Hymietown Jackson tutoring on redemption.
