3. I feel ya, rpannier. But Deen was trying to excuse and deflect.
This was never about the things that young people say to her that make her cry.

This is about her brother and her treating an employee improperly, which improper treatment including many racist remarks in the presence of an employee who has mixed race nephews.

Paula Deen has tried to make it about a hundred other things, but that is what it is about. And she is not repentant in the least, given that she said to Matt Lauer, amid much tear-free sobbing, "and I ain't changin'"

When I heard that, I hoped the employee would take her for all she's worth--and that's probably billions.
