I continue to be confused by the "pile-on" that has happened to Paula Deen. She used the "n-word" and nearly every company that was making money off of her dumped her like a hot potato.
Then I'm driving home listening to a Comedy Network on Sirius. A black comedian, Kevin Hart, uses the supposed unbelievably offensive "n-word" three times within three minutes and every time he uses the word the live, taped audience howls with laughter!
I find it hypocritical if the "word" is so offensive to use it for laughs and furthering one's career, both professionally and financially, as Kevin Hart does. Where's the consistency?
