Paula Deen Isn't Racist... Say Paula Deen's Sons

Well if you needed definitive proof that Paula Deen isn’t racist, then it’s arrived in a statement from her sons, Bobby and Jamie Deen. If you’re looking for something a little more impartial, then we’d recommend you look elsewhere, something tells us these guys have a vested interest.

"Neither one of our parents ever taught us to be bigoted toward any other person for any reason," Bobby Deen told CNN's "New Day" in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo. "Our mother is one of the most compassionate, good-hearted, empathetic people that you'd ever meet," he added. "These accusations are very hurtful to her, and it's very sad." In a recent court deposition, Deen admitted to calling someone a n*****. And the suit alleges racism in two of her restaurants. "I'm disgusted by the entire thing, because it began as extortion and it has become character assassination," Bobby Deen said. Jamie Deen added: "ridiculous, completely absurd to think there is an environment of racism in our business, and it's really disrespectful to the people that we work with. We have strong, educated men and women of character that have been with us for five, 10, 15, 20 years. To think they would allow themselves to be in this position is simply baloney. It's ridiculous."

There is one hole in the son’s argument that Deen isn’t racist, though: she called a black person a n*****. She may have tried to justify it, but given that SHE CALLED A BLACK PERSON A N*****, it’s pretty difficult to escape the notion that she’s racist.
