Basic Black: Recipes For Racism

  • Aired: 06/21/2013
  • Rating: NR
This week "Black Twitter" erupted after the news of Food Network chef Paula Deen admitted to routinely using the n-word. This acknowledgment was made during a deposition in which Deen and her brother are being sued for racial discrimination and sexual harassment. It's ironic that this episode occurred on Juneteenth. Within hours, #paulasbestdishes was the leading trend on Twitter.
