According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the lawsuit filed Monday alleges that former employee Lisa Jackson was the victim of sexual harassment and that Bubba repeatedly made racist remarks in the kitchen while she was stirring the pot. Jackson, the former general manager of Deen and Hiers’ seafood place, says the sexual overtures started shortly after she was promoted from hostess to manager in 2005.
Instead of showing seafood dishes Bubba preferred to show pornography and watch inappropriate websites to the staff. Dude bypass the “Food Network” channel. Get this Paula Deen and Big Bubba wanted to emulate slavery when blacks were considered free labor. Uh huh….
“Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n***ers to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around… Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.”
I believe ole girl allegations against Bubba. Because Deen is a money maker, brings in high television ratings and killing folks with her diet suggestions. Folks want to turn an blind eye. They say you never know what goes on behind closed doors. Justsaying…….I can believe Bubba and Paula Deen was stirring up trouble in kitchen. What is surely done in the dark will come to light. Black folks are no longer afraid to speak out about the transgressions committed against them behind close doors. It is no longer good business to treat folks unfairly because of back in the day old school practices to folks that need a job. Much less folks that keep the business afloat. You would think big Bubba and southern bell Deen would know how their bread is buttered. DUH!
Simply look at the age of an individual when you hear about racism and reports of discrimination from the media. Southern bell Deen fits right into that category when folks called non whites racism names and viewed dark skinned folks as the bottom of the pot. Just because it is the 21st century does not mean racist folks went away. Those racist folks went underground due to the civil rights and the laws changing in this country. It is simply camouflaged in between the hamburger and cheese served with a white overprice bun. Eat on that…..
Don’t cry a bowl of soup for Bubba and Southern bell Deen….they have more money than 99% of us to stir up in a pot of seafood soup.
Here comes the typical response to an working class plaintiff from the overpriced intimidating attorney. Yeah yeah….dude is paid to say whatever he needs to say to collect a check. Calling Jackson’s assertions “baseless, inflammatory allegations,” the statement goes on to say that the lawsuit is an attempt to “ruin Paula Deen’s reputation.” Nah….ain’t nobody trying to ruin Deen’s reputation but Southern Bell Deen and Big Bubba in the back of the kitchen.
