Two years after accusations of racism nearly destroyed her food empire, it seems Paula Deen has learned nothing!

For the record, a racist attitude is not something that can be apologized away. Feeling bad about it is not going to wash away all the years she felt ‘some kinda way’ about other cultures. That being said, Deen, the former Food Network star and court documented racist, has landed herself in hot water yet again.

Early Tuesday morning, Deen’s social media accounts sent out a tweet and Facebook post with a photo depicting the cook dressed as Lucille Ball’s character from the 1950s television sitcom “I Love Lucy.”
Her son, Bobby Deen, is dressed as the show’s husband, Ricky Ricardo (Cuban-American Desi Arnaz) and the younger Deen is wearing what several media outlets are referring to as “brownface” to mimic Arnaz’s ethnicity.
*sigh* Same ish… different day!
The photo has since been deleted but as you know… nothing is ever truly ‘deleted’ from the net.

OK… so it’s the day after Memorial Day. All the BBQ’s are over and yet, the debate still continues about whether a woman should fix her man’s plate or not.
[FLASHBACK: Nightline Face-Off: ‘Why Can’t Successful Black Women Find a Man? (VIDEO)]
The discussion began about a week ago on Twitter and Facebook, when a meme popped up inquiring the following:
Soooooooooooo you are at a barbeque. Your man is hungry. He lets you know he is hungry but you are not the kind of woman to go around ‘fixing plates’ for a man so you ignore him.
A random woman hears this and says, ‘I will fix your plate.’ She sashays away and comes back with a plate for your man.
Do you have any problems with this?
The battle has continued and it’s actually getting quite entertaining. I personally don’t have a problem ‘fixin plates’ but apparently there are a lot of women who feel ‘some kinda way’ about the question even being asked…
Check out what the ‘tweets’ had to say about it all below and share your thoughts… Continue Reading…

Early Tuesday morning, around 1 am, the Grammy nominated R&B singer stopped by a 24 hour CVS Pharmacy in Carson, California for painkillers in advance of dental surgery she was having and was old by the pharmacist on duty that they didn’t fill certain prescriptions after midnight because of the area where the store was located.
Price was offended because she believes such a refusal wouldn’t have happened in a neighborhood with a higher socio-economic status and a different demographic makeup.
“I was offended for anybody who lives in a neighborhood that may not be considered the upper echelon – where expensive homes are. Or where six- and seven-figure earners live.”
Price hit her Facebook page to explain her position and to appropriately put the drug store on blast. In an open letter titled ‘SHAME ON YOU CVS,’ Price details her frustration with the drug chainand calls them out on what she feels are discriminatory practices.
