I'd rather support my own family and kids not some welfare sucker who cant stand on their own two feet. If you need welfare to raise a child perhaps you should not have a child. If you are already on welfare you should not have anymore children but some just use their child bearing as a financial gain, they do not care about the kids well being ist the welfare increases they want.
Mr. Charles was a great person. He should be an example to all people. First class all the way. If we could all be like Mr. Charles this would be a great place to live.
It would also be great if they teach these parents about the benefits of an intact married family structure. They should also teach these parents about being able to care for their kids without a government handout, that means being able to afford to raise a child on your own income.
Total lack of integrity. This character should lose his seat because he has a track record of trying to skirt the system. He has lost all credibility, a business owner than does not pay for proper licensing is a cheater.
I love the real Paula Deen as well, its the one trying to copy her that I laugh at. The real Paula Deen is an awesome lady with tons of true southern charm, she is the real deal not a coat hanger.
Good point Covingtonian and what about the councilman who has a mother that refers to herself as the Paula Deen of Covington. Maybe we need an investigation.
Covingtonian, I'm impressed by you giving Paula Deen the respect she deserves by calling her Ms. Deen. The derogatory joke you mention is a good comparison of how the different races speak, I have to agree with the outcome of the joke because many people of color talk just like that. When my kids were growing up it was a constant battle for my wife and I to explain to the kids that you should speak where people understand you and not use street slang and incorrect grammar. We instilled in them the values of good communication .I have shown several of my employees your reference to" Uncle Tom" as it pertains to me and we have laughed all morning, keep up the good work because it shows us what type of person you are. After reading your comments the consensus was you are a person with a huge chip on your shoulder and several said they bet you voted for Obama because he is black. I would have voted for a black president myself but there was not a qualified black person running.
Covingtonian, you said all we need to know about you when you referred to me as an "Uncle Tom". I have been called that many times by my people because I do not lay blame on the evil white man for my laziness and ignorance. As for my businesses, I own 5 all together and they range from consulting to hospitality to a High End clothier in Boston. I have been self employed for over 35 years and have never had a business fail. I have faced tough times in a few but I used my brain not the government to come out of the bad times. Over these 35 years I have purchased and sold 7 businesses and made a very good return. I now have kids that have my same attitude and they have started taking over a few of my business ventures after careers in the public sector. Im very impressed that one of your closest friends is white, I also have white friends. Last but not least if you let the n-word hurt your feelings I suggest getting a thicker skin and stop your brothers and sisters of color from using that word. If its incorrect for one race its incorrect for all races.
Covingtonian, Are these Allegations being made by one employee, maybe a disgruntled one at that. Do you think this former employee is trying to make money off Mrs. Deens fame and celebrity? This happens all the time , by the way. Let me ask you this Covingtonian, Have you ever said something that was racially hurtful in the last 10-20 years? If your black that also includes the n-word. Its odd to me that not one of the black employees made a claim, you know if this was really going on that someone would have brought this out way earlier, you cant be that blind.I can assure you in this day and time that this alleged blatant discrimination would not be going on without a black person standing up to it and fighting back..
Covingtonian, This white female is the first complaintant against Mrs. Deen and her brother from what I understand, please correct me if im wrong. As for the black employees having to use the backdoor and separate bathroom, I find that hard to believe. I bet you will find all employees are held to these practices regardless of race. In my businesses all employees are required to enter and exit through the back and I have separate facilities for them as well.Covingtonian do you have a chip on your shoulder against white people, it sounds like that's possible.If people want racism to end they must stop using it as a crutch and stop blaming people for their issues and start looking for a solution to their issues.Slavery of my people was the worst thing this country has ever done and if you look at our government they are keeping my people down now through handouts. What has Obama done to help people of color live the American Dream, not one thing. He just wants to keep them on the handout train to nowhere. Also, I am very proud of MY black skin, its my people who always blame others and not themselves that make me sad. Why have the other employees in this restaurant not made a stand, I think you know that answer.
