Quoting LittleTiger:" I wonder if it got thrown out of proportion by the media or if the employee said she said it at the ... [snip!] ... Regardless, it hurt her image and brand. I would hate to be on her PR team. They have got to be working on overtime now. lol"

TMZ just released a report:
Lisa Jackson -- who was fired as manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House -- is asking for damages based on racial harassment, claiming she's African-American adjacent. As for Jackson's proof she's got African-American ties, she points to her partner's biracial niece, whom Jackson claims is half Black.



According to Paula's new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Jackson's niece is NOT Black at all ... not even a little. Paula says Jackson's partner has now admitted the niece is Hispanic -- NOT Black.



And Paula's especially pissed that Jackson alleged in her lawsuit that Paula used the N-word in connection with Bubba's wedding, yet has never offered a shred of proof that the word was used.



So now Paula wants the judge to throw the book at Jackson, fining her with sanctions for creating a bogus racial harassment case.

and I read before this that in the ladies deposition she admitted to never hearing Paula Deen use offensive language personally, so it sounds like the lady made everything up and the media is rolling with it.

I think the outcry and backlash against her is going too far. Is it really such a big deal that she's racist. Yeah, she's ignorant. So are a lot of other people in this country and all over the world. People need to leave it alone. It just makes the offended group look bad to keep antagonizing her.



Oh and BTW, we didn't lose anyone, but we gained 3 members, since you're keeping a tally.

It does not matter if black people/rapper says it.It does not give her the right to use it.I feel kind of bad for her because i read a report this morning that home depot and walmart dropped her along with other sponsors.It is getting a little out of hand.

what DOES give somebody the "right" to use it?? just curious because you said it doesn't matter when black people or rappers say it.... so they must have earned the right somehow.
