So, I've skimmed a few posts here and there about here, listened to TMZ's coverage on her, and the consensus seemed to be that she made a "mistake" by using the term "n"... once. and that she's from a time and place where is was acceptable. as I sit and think about this situation more and more. and details tend to come pouring out more and more (I.E. she has a black best friend that she referred to as darker than a chalk board, her slave party) I can't help but think that she is just too old to change and to see how even in passing to her dh that her actions (?) are unjustified. there are plenty of people from the south that do not use that sort of language, that excuse is ridiculous. should she have been fired? I honestly don't know, there are people using the word in a less (supposedly) derogatory form nowadays (n*gga) doesn't make right either. before the whole "scandal" broke I had no opinions on her, what about you ladies? are you a fan? should she have been fired? what makes anyone think that she won't continue to refer to black people as n behind closed doors? kind of ridiculous if you think about it. from what I gather (source TMZ) there are a handful of stars that have used this term and were not fired.
so, my questions above
