    That term is used in almost all rap song on the radio. I don’t understand why it’s ok for others to use it but yet wrong for some. What’s the differance between a rap song on the radio and a normal conversation. It’s wrong either way.

    Are your closets free of skeletons?
    I watched with great interest the media reports about Paula Deen using the “N” word over 30 years ago. Was it inappropriate? Absolutely. Was it used in public? NO, according to the news reports, it was used in a private conversation during a very specific incident that no one else would have known about unless this extremely honest lady admitted to saying it during her testimony. So what have our children learned from this incident? HONESTLY admitting that you used a racial slur once in your life gets you branded a racist and destroys everything that you have worked for all of your life? I don’t personally believe that the punishment fits the crime.
    What really should be thoroughly researched is how many people that worked for Smithfield Packaging Company beginning in the 1930’s were referred to as the “N” word by the Luter family or their managers. It was common back then to use the “N” word and should be no more of a disgrace for Paula Deen than it would be for anyone of the company founding fathers to have used it. There seems to be no “statute of limitations” since Paul Deen’s occurrence was over 30 years ago. If no workers come forward from the Smithfiled Packaging Company with a high fluting carpet bagger of a lawyer making waves with a class action billion dollar lawsuit, I will be the most surprised person in the country. I hope that the Luter family and current and former Smithfield Packaging Company employee’s closets are free from any skeletons because I think I hear rumblings in the distance.
