Truth hurts Deen


How many 63-year-olds from the South could truthfully say they have “never” used the n-word? According to what has been reported, the question was, “Have you ever used the n-word,” no qualifications. I would venture to say that everyone at some time in their life utters that word. Maybe not in public, or where others can hear them, but that wasn’t the question.

When Paula Deen answered in the affirmative, it was obvious she was being truthful. She is suffering because she told the truth. Lie about it, and you just may get away with it.
