She said what?

paulaBy now we all know the brouhaha that has surrounded the famed celebrity cook, restauranteur, and shitty pots and pans shill Paula Deen. Thirty years ago she admittedly confessed to her at the time husband about referring to the man that held a gun to her head while working as a bank teller during an armed robbery as a “nigger”.

This shocking revelation was discovered during a sworn deposition regarding an ongoing law suite in which Deen and her brother are defendants.

I am not shocked how the mainstream media has handled this revelation. However it is interesting how the general public has taken the contextually and inaccurately drawn conclusions about Paula Deen’s past use of the obligatory N-bomb. The media and simpleton public have somehow come to the conclusion that Paula Deen referring to the black man that could have killed her, who forcefully and illegally exerted his will on her with a firearm during the commission of a crime as a “nigger” that she is somehow now labeled a racist and something worse then Hitler, the KKK or a run of the mill skin head neo-nazi.

I live in the south. I have grown up in the south. I am well aware of the roots and origin of the N-word. I know of its derogatory nature towards a group of people and its negative connotations. I am somewhat educated, have traveled all over this country and a good chunk of this planet. I have interacted with in both my professional and personal life people of color. Black, Yellow, White, Mulatto, you name it. Although I have never met any gypsy fortune tellers with three nipples. Pretty much the rest of the population however I can mark off the bingo card.

Everyone knows the word “nigger” is offensive and has no place in everyday speech.

In my life I have heard the word “nigger” used many times. I realized it wasn’t because I lived in the south, or associated with bigots. I can honestly say I have heard the word more times then not from the mouths of blacks themselves. Educated blacks, all the way down to the lowest common denominator homeless blacks on the street. Blacks in south, in the north, USA blacks, all the way to African blacks who never saw an electric light, who USA blacks would say, “goddamn Africa is home and where we’re from but “F” this is some backwoods shit.”

My question is if the word “nigger” is so abominably offensive to blacks and an outright cardinal sin for a caucasian to utter, then why does the black community use the word so freely amongst themselves?

Rap lyrics in the last twenty years? Eddie Murphy? Richard Pryor? Hollywood, Friday, Next Friday, Friday after Next movies? Overheard any three blacks talking to each other when they think no one else can hear? Or hell when three blacks talk to each other and don’t care who else can hear? Give me three black people, thirty minutes and I will guarantee you with the last cent to my name, any number of “nigger, niggas, negros” and as sure as i am typing this rather culturally controversial blog post a “shit mothafucka” as sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west each and every day.

I have heard and experienced these same “nigger” and derivative word usage by blacks essentially all over the world, in all cultures, religions, educational, financial and fiscal levels of black existence. Argue all you want that I may be stereotyping a small segment of the black community to represent the whole. I simply do not agree and it has not been my empirical experience.

Do not misunderstand me, please. I do not suggest or condone the common usage of the world “nigger” by Paula Deen or anyone else for that matter. However I do feel it rather hypocritical of any person or organization to pass judgement on anyone that may have used the word at some time in their life, when the majority of the segment of the people the word is targeted to offend is freely using the word amongst themselves in relative everyday language.

I should fully disclose and although I am not under oath but for the mere journalistic ¬†integrity of this blog post I have used the word “nigger”. Actually I better just come clean with all the bad words I have used.

These are just the worlds I have either used to describe a person or relate a completely inappropriate off color joke. This week.

Guess what? I have been called everyone of those words at some point in my life. By my mother, father, brothers, ex-girlfriends, current girlfriends, blacks, whites, preachers, nuns, senators, congressmen, strippers, and the occasional Jehovahs Witnesses on a Saturday morning at my front door.

I have used the word ‘nigger” yes. I am not proud of that fact but I have. I have also been down in the dirt and sand with a black man in a fighting hole next to me not knowing what the next hours were going to bring to either of us, but he was my friend and I would have killed someone or died myself defending him and I know he would have done the same for me.

You see I can tell a dirty joke. I can laugh at a dirty joke. If you’re a cocksucker I’ll call you a cocksucker. The color of your skin when I meet you means nothing to me. Its your character and your actions towards me that I judge you on. I expect nothing less in return.

Could Paula Deen have used a different word describing the man that took from her and could have killed her? Sure she could have. Was the man that did those things during that bank robbery what Paula Deen called him? In my opinion you bet your ass he was. I’d have called him the same thing if it happened to me tomorrow much less thirty years ago. The difference is I didn’t make $17 million dollars last year. Paula Deen did.

You see the word “nigger” really isn’t that offensive to anyone truth be told. Unless you got a lot of something to lose and you’re white. You see if Paula Deen made any mistake by using the word “nigger” thirty years ago describing the man that robbed her at gun point, its that she didn’t use the same word to describe the white woman who Paula and her brother had to fire from their restaurants for cause and is now bringing this law suite against them. Because frankly she deserves to be called one too as much as the man that robbed Paula 30 years ago. They are both doing the exact same thing, only one used a gun and the other is trying to use the legal system.

Lets be honest here. Had the woman who is suing Paula and her brother Bubba worked for Patrick and Gina Neely (whom are black, and were discovered and owe their food network fame to Paula Deen) was fired and then brought a law suite against the them on the basis the Neelys called some white woman a honky 30 years ago for not paying for some BBQ ribs do you think it would be national news?

Food for thought. <———pun

Let ‘er rip tater chips.

Stay calm and carry on.

By now we all the know the answer to the big question. It seems that what I was afraid was going to happen actually happened.

In America you’re not going to win an election for president without support from women, the blacks or hispanics. As polarizing as that statement may be its the cold hard truth. Lets look at the numbers a little more closely.

Obama had 93% of the black vote. Obamas administration and the democratic party cater to this demographic and have essentially enslaved them with government programs such as welfare, food stamps, healthcare, unemployment. When you’re Mitt Romney and trying to ride the Reagan wave of the 80’s with voters you can not alienate this group with silly off hand comments of “47%’ers” not paying their way no matter how true it may be! Being white and trying to convince this core group of voters to vote for you when they have a black candidate who signs the checks is hurdle enough. Yes its a race problem. The majority of the 93% black vote went to Obama because he is black. Its that simple and anyone arguing otherwise is a liar or just plain stupid. Compound that ideology with providing this core group of voters with the government programs the republican party wants to trim and shrink down in the name of personal responsibility and you have an up hill battle. Romney failed miserably with this demographic and so does the republican party.

Obama had 69-70% of the hispanic/latino vote. This I would not directly blame Mitt Romney more then I would blame the republican party itself. Mitt knew this was an issue early in the race and went to the republican party and explained to them the national conversation on the hispanic and latino issue should be integration and legal immigration rather then deportation. The republicans and tea-party old school lives by “send the goddamn illegals back home, fuck em”! Well guess what? Who do you think is coming to this country and actually doing all the work and busting their asses that the 93% of the group mentioned above does NOT do? YEP. Love it or hate it the hispanic and latinos in this country are the ones picking fruit, mowing grass, laying tile, basically doing all the shit work in this country the blacks wont do. When you as the republican party go after this group with threats of deportation (Arizona) you’re not going to win favors or votes with the group. Mitt knew and understands this. The republican party however is stuck in the dark ages on this matter. The solution is not to just deport the illegals, the solution is to get the illegals here that are working, legal and on the fucking TAX ROLLS.

Obama had 55% of married women and 68% of unmarried women. Do we even need to discuss this? Abortion. Look there is nothing wrong with having religious convictions and those convictions shaping who you are and how you conduct yourself. No one is taking that away from anyone. The bottom line however is pretty clear and simple. Shut the fuck up about it, its not your problem. Abortion is a states right issue. It has no place at the national level. Down to the brass tacks? It’s a woman’s right and hers and hers alone issue. The feds have no more right telling a religious organization to provide birth control as the fed has a right saying a woman can not have free access to it. Whether you like it or don’t abortion is a form of birth control. No one cares what your god says about abortion and no one is taking away your belief in what your god tells you to think about abortion. The sooner we all accept this and stop trying to shove our morality or lack of down the throats of the other the better we will all be. Here’s another tip to the republicans. Douche out your fucking head gear. Homosexuals live among us and they are a fact of life. They are going to get married, love each other, adopt and raise kids. Again the fags aren’t shoving their lifestyle down anyones throat and this notion that two queers can get married and it somehow negates your marriage between you and your wife/husband is silly and just plain bullshit. Get used to it. Your marriage to your wife/husband will never be any less sanctified to you and your god just because two dudes or two women want to have the same piece of government paper saying they are married as you and your wife/husband have.

I think Mitt could have been a good President. Obama is still an evil socialist pig. However, Obama didn’t do anything in this election any other democrat would have done. Obama played the cards the republican party dealt him. Until we as the republican party stop handing these elections away to the democrats by simple and stupid mistakes we are going to slide the slippery slope to universal and socialized everything that Obama and his party are greasing the skids to right now.

One of two things is the only way out of this mess we are creating for ourselves.

Outright revolt and revolution. By that I mean we attack and take back everything and re-boot. Taxes, government, term limits for house and senate, two party system, campaign finance etc. We allowed these scumbags to legislate the system into a good old boys/girls club that has NOTHING to do with the people they are claiming to represent. Its about $ and self preservation.

Or

The republican / conservative party really takes a good hard look at itself. This isn’t fucking 1980 anymore. Ronald Reagan was great and awesome, but we don’t need another and the people who voted him in office aren’t here any more. By “here” I mean way the fuck out in the fringe of right wing conservatism. We as a political party are going nowhere until we convince those centralist voters who are heading and gone left in the last two elections to come back this way. You cant just bargain with those people with a promise of a good job any more. Especially when the democrats and socialists are providing proof to them they can take the attitude of “fuck a job, I got a free Obama phone”. Give them work, give them dignity to succeed and be responsible. Do not trade one for another with religious morality, deportation and true deserved welfare necessity.

I can go on about how Obama is a fraud, and an anti-colonial apologist who is hell bent on making America into a 3rd and 4th rate nation. It will be a miracle if we pull out of this next presidential term in tact as a super power able to compete and protect ourselves in the world. There is a lot to worry about and hate with the administration. However, as a republican and conservative there is whole bunch wrong we as a party need to unfuck and clean up internally if we think we are ever going to regain power and restore this nation to true prosperity and greatness.

So in the meantime I am taking the attitude to Stay Calm and Carry On. I’ll protect my money and assets as best as I can. I’ll watch with interest how we as a party stop this polarizing bullshit, and hope we can work things back this way through peaceful means. If not let the revolution begin. I am ready to go to ground, and I wont feel bad at all when we line up all the traitors against the wall.
