"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."
Paula Deen, comparing the backlash from her saying n*gger and treating her employees of color like trash to a black gay football player, Michael Sam, coming out and having to deal with people only talking about him being gay rather than this athletic abilities
White logic is a muthafucka.
She is a goddamned fool.
Yep, when I think of a Black Gay 6-foot-2 255-pound All-American Defensive Player of the Year, “Paula Deen” just pops into my head, there’s so much overlap. **my eyes** **your eyes**
Good thing she specified “that black football player” because we wouldn’t want to confuse Michael Sam with any of the other non-Black football players who have recently come out.
She can’t even be bothered to remember his name, yet has the arrogance to think she can sell this line that she relates to Sam’s struggle as a gay football player. That’s called an extremely maladroit attempt to latch your wagon onto a winning horse. Sorry, Paula, Michael Sam has conducted himself with nothing but dignity and is riding a wave of public support. You? Not so much.
Maybe she means that she’ll soon be an unsigned free agent.
Because we all know that being harassed and attacked for who you love which a) doesn’t hurt anyone, b) doesn’t affect your performance, is totally JUST LIKE exploiting your workers to make millions of dollars on their recipes while they’re trying to live check to check while you also get to call them genocidal slurs because you think so little of them.
Yep. Just. The. Same.
White people get really upset when “too much” (any) empathy is extended towards Black people and they do the furthest reaching to try to make sure everyone remembers to focus on the white people instead.
why are racists always so pathetically desperate to dıןɟ ǝɥʇ ʇdıɹɔs and appropriate and then portray themselves as the aggrieved victim? (via odinsblog)
