Why do you need to make a statement? She's made a statement all by herself:

Well, what I really would like is a bunch of little n****gers to wear white shirts, black shorts, and black bow ties, you know, in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around. Now that would be a true Southern wedding, wouldn't it?

Nothing wrong there, is there? Thanks to all who stood up for her in this thread. You must be so proud.

Nobody should be defending this kind of language! It's disgusting and unacceptable, and she deserves everything she gets (because she should know better by now).

But I would also like to add, that this is also quite offensive. And Deen's offensive statements were heard by only a handful of people a few times, while this kind of stuff is heard by millions everyday. Both should receive strong condemnation by society and be made unacceptable to use in polite company (or in any company).
