If there’s one thing you would’ve thought Paula Deen would know by now, it’s that racism doesn’t fly. You can’t go around shamelessly displaying your bigotry and expect people not to react vocally. In fact, you would assume that after her last foray into the land of “WOO HOO, WHITE PEOPLE!” a few years back, she’d have learned that, you know, people of colour deserve respect and dignity, but alas – you really can’t take the racism out of the racist. And this time around, she’s taken it to a new level by having her son Bobby dress in brownface for a completely tasteless I Love Lucy parody.
I mean, because you know, no one would have gotten what on earth she was going for had Bobby not smeared is face with brown makeup to show that he was portraying Desi Arnaz. It was so necessary, given that Lucille Ball is one of the most recognizable stars in history and Paula’s wig gave it away. LORD give us all strength not to smack this whole ignorant ass family into next week.
