From what I understand, she did not use a racial slur during any court proceeding. Howeveer, when asked durring a recent court proceeding if she had EVER uttered the "'N" word, she admitted that she had, but that it was many years ago. She has also stressed, before and after the court thing, that she has never condoned racism or rbigotry or prejudice of any kind. While I don't know her personally, I'm inclined to believe her. I don't think she's a racist.

Although certain people can use the term nigg@r and even put it in songs and play it on the radio , Paula is called out for it because she's a cracker.

Is your question serious or are you just joking around? What Paula Deen said was disgusting to certain people, or a group of people. No matter what people say or do, I'll never say or type that word! You can't get it out of me!

I have a sneaking suspicion that you already know the answer, but are waiting to trip someone up with that racial slur. Ok, I could be wrong. But, what do you think the white, southern Baptist said that was a racial slur??? All I can say is the "N" word, whatever that is....

If Paula Dean answered the question if she ever used the N word and she said yes, back in the60's. Geez, all you have to do is listen to the rap music and you hear it all the time today. 1960 was a long long time ago, what in the world is going on anymore. I feel sorry for her. Clinton can smoke pot, have sex with other women, commit perjury, and Paula said a bad word in 1960. Give me a break!!! Stupid Stupid Democrats.
