Turns out Paula Deen has been openly racist for awhile.

Youtube

In this video, Paula discusses how devastated her father was after the South lost the Civil War and couldn't figure out how to run his plantation without all his slaves. Why would you ever want to hire people?! Slaves are so much easier in her mind. Then, as if it couldn't get any worse, she starts talking about a man that works for her named Hollis Johnson. She describes him as her friend who is, "as black as the board behind them." Uh....hey Paula, that still counts as a bit racist. You have to see this video. What do you think? Is she simply ignorant to how bad her comments are, or is she truly racist at heart?
