    I certainly don't approve of the comments Paula Deen made, and I don't watch her program. However, I would like to see the same level of concern when blacks make racist or bigoted remarks. Jamie Foxx made a comment on Saturday Night Live about how great it was that a black man could kill white people in his movie D'Jango Unchained, and there was no comment. A few years ago Chris Rock made a comment on Saturday Night Live on St. Patrick's Day that all Irish people were too drunk to realize that there had been a major storm that day. A couple of years ago a local elected official, who is black, said that he would like to slap a white person across the face – he kept his job and got to run for higher office. I don't care for double standards – racism and bigotry should be deplored regardless of who makes the remark.

    Any word that is use to hurt person or a group of people is wrong. But to try and make the word Cracker as having the same meaning as the word Nigger. How many blacks men or women were hung from a tree and that was the last word they heard as they breath there last bit of life, and also a family who was burn to death in their home. I once asked my father as a child 'what did the word cracker mean you called a person that word" he said it meant a white man beating a black man across the head". Many white took pride in calling each other that word because of that meaning. I would even go as far in saying whites have never even experienced the actions of death as I said blacks have experienced with a group of whites standing there with anger in their eyes of hate. The word Cracker will never be the same as Nigger.

    This is stupid back in the 1930s applesauce was consider bad to say for god's sake we have the freedom of speech now it feels like no one can say what they want to say I know words not to say that is one of them.
