An Observation About Paula Deen

paula deen racist

Paula Deen stepped out yesterday by making this following statement  “I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying. I’m fighting to get my name back.”

Note to Paula Deen: You were rightfully vilified for being a racist piece of shit who discriminates against people based on their race. That is not the same thing as a gay man not wanting his sexual orientation to overshadow his identity in a sport mostly hostile to that identity.

Moreover, if you want to make the point that you are not, indeed, a racist asshole,  then maybe you care to refer to said man by his name, Michael Sam, as opposed to just calling him “that black man.
