    It has just been announced that Paula Dean will be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars. Is it time we boycott this show?

    No, I will not be supporting any of Paula Deen's projects. I am not a fan of DWTS anyway. Along with Paula Deen I am also throwing Steve Harvey under the bus too. I can't post the link, because I am under "new poster" status. But, you can google "Steve Harvey Recruits Paula Deen to Teach at His Mentoring Program". In essence, in early October 2014, Deen was trying to dispel reports of her racist behavior, and she managed to partner with Steve Harvey to volunteer to teach culinary skills at his annual mentoring camps in Savannah.

    You can also find Steve Harvey on a You Tube titled "Steve Harvey Shares Thoughts On Paula Deen"

    IMHO, Steve is "doing the most...." I mean, he couldn't find a single African American Chef to partner with? Just WHY is he going out on a limb for Paula Deen? I am baffled.

    I didn't know this Paula Deen person existed until the racial situation came up. I watched the season of DWTS when the actor who played( Steve Urkel) Jaleel White was on there simply because I liked him. I certainly will not watch it knowing the likes of her is on there. Steve could have chosen a better person to back.

    She had a very popular cooking show, in which she cooked a lot of Southern foods. She was lambasted in the media when it was revealed that she had Type 2 Diabetes from eating all the foods she was famous for cooking, laden with fats, butter, etc. Then a white woman went public with the story about her using the n-word with AAs on the job. Which baffles me, because why would they (the AAs) continue to work for her under those conditions? But, apparently they did. And, up comes Steve Harvey... Captain Save A Redneck....

    Now we know, if Steve Harvey were on fire she wouldn't urinate on him to save his life.

    *smh*

    I remember when all that came out about your her. She looks like she eats any and everything. I'm not surprised she has the health issues. Pathetic that her AA employees tolerated that. I'm sure that goes on today just as well. Of course women white folks try a different approach to letting it be know how they feel about us in many other ways. We always know even when they don't use the N word. It's right there just hanging off the tips of their vocal cords waiting to be deployed at any moment. And then turn around and say, "oh I have never spoken like that before, I'm not racist"
    I am so not a fan of his either. smdh at the urinate remark..lol.

    I found this. He has to learned his lesson. He doesn't tell what happened specifically. But, we can guess. She probably showed her redneck colors. Surprise, surprise....

    *rolling my eyes at Steve*
