 ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!!!  Walmart, if you have a standard - then you WILL hold EVERONE of your partners and products to THAT standard.  You don't get to pick and choose who is held to that standard and who gets a free pass without criticism.  

I did some research and just ONE example I found on their website available for purchase at $11.88 was a CD by Lil' Wayne called "I Am Not A Human Being II" and just ONE of the songs called "Rich as F--k" contains the N-word dozens of times.  

I am sure if I spent more than 2 minutes on their site I could find hundreds more examples of songs with lyrics which contain the N-word and dozens of products by people who have used that word in their lives.  I'll bet I can find dozens of products by people who have used the N-word in the last 20 minutes!

This bullying of Paula Deen needs to end NOW.  It's all overkill at this point.

You have a good point. If you are going to punish one person for it you need to punish all.

I don't shop all Wal-mart and imo they should all be burned to the ground.

That old ass broad wasn't singing a song was she? Also, Lil Wayne happens to be BLACK. Not sure if you knew this.... it's NOT the same at all, not even relevant!

When I'm joking with my friends, I refer to them as "bitch."

When you piss me off and I call you a bitch, it is not the same term of endearment that I used with my friends.

I said that from the beginning if everyone is going to punish Paula, then punish the rest. When is the use of the "N" word acceptable. It's offensive regardless who is using it. I say ban all that dumb crap from the stores fand airwaves. I guess it's OK for some to use it but not others.

Lmao. Are you even serious right now? When the "n word" is used in rap songs, it is not being used as a RACIAL SLUR. Come on! Plus, aren't all of Walmart's CDs the edited and cleaned up versions?
