"The Color Of Your Skin..." Paula Deen

Paula Deen was slapped with a discrimination law-suit.

It stems from Deen, 66, admitting to using the N-word, racist jokes and commenting about wanting black waiters dressed as slaves.

She apologized using YouTube as the forum.

The Food Network, her employers, fired her.

"The color of your skin, your religion, your sexual preference, does not matter, but it's what's in the heart...and my family and I try to live by that" is part of her apology.

Questions: Do you believe her?
Why would she utter such words?
You accept her apology?

I've seen over and over like situations. Some people rise to a certain position and become too comfortable. They feel that they can do or say anything, surpass the rules.

Many thoughts will come to mind, but it isn't wise to say or act on all of them.

Think before speaking or acting.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
