Wouldn't you consider this evidence that the free market can provide adequate punishment for discrimination, thereby rendering anti-discrimination laws outdated?

We're well aware that you are an ardent supporter of everyone having the right to be as discriminatory as they wish.

So she got fired for admitting to using the word at some point in her life? It doesn't sound like she said it to any person directly. It seems like the lawsuit was filed last year, and this is now just coming to light?

I don't think there was even a suggestion of any discrimination on her part, just her use of a certain word (not even allegedly directed at the accuser or anybody else) years ago. I consider it evidence that this country is becoming a bunch of politically correct, thin skinned, namby-pambies.

I mean it's not like I care she's off the air, I just think it seems like this is something pretty trivial. I mean she was asked under deposition have you ever used the n-word in your life? I would think most people would answer yes if you take in to count your entire life. I dunno just seems odd.

Technically not fired, just not renewing her contract.

Convenient for food network, as they don't need to worry about pr backlash for keeping her or a legal battle for firing her.

Yep. There is no requirement to re-up her and it would just be a situation not worth the hassle.

If only all those music labels and sponsors would fire all the rappers who use the same word, though in much more awful contexts. Actually, prosecute them for hate crimes.

You're right. They need reeducation camps, after prosecution for their hate crimes. Just as Hillary wanted.

What is worse is the way women, teenager girls, are depicted in their videos and lyrics- songs. actions that cross over to reality all to often.

cool story that might - will bore all. IN the 2nd grade I said this word to a classmate; a hideous boy.
I think I said you are as black as my crayon.
Of course, as through all my life, penny lane is caught. My teacher made me repeat that word to
the black girl in my class. Hard lesson, but never again. Tolerance should be a part of every course through death.
