Al Sharpton Comes To Paula Dean’s DefenseJune 24th, 2013
Al Sharpton thinks Paula Deen is getting a raw deal for using the n-word. Sharpton, whose legacy is surrounded by the Civil Rights movement, thinks Paula Dean should be forgiven, saying “a lot of us have in the past said things we have regretted.”
The Rev. added Paula should instead be judged based on the outcome of the current lawsuit … from a former employee accusing Paula and her brother of using offensive language.
“You can’t deal with what is fair and not fair till we see the outcome of the present circumstances she’s accused of not something 20 years ago.”
