STATEMENT: Plaintiff in Paula Deen discrimination lawsuit

This lawsuit has never been about the "n" word.  It is to address Ms. Deen's  patterns of disrespect and degradation of people that she deems to be inferior.  I am a white woman, but I could no longer tolerate her abuse of power as a business owner, nor her condonation of Mr. Hiers' despicable day-to-day behavior.  I am what I am, and I am a human being that cares about discrimination in the workplace.  In part, in this circumstance, I have to be a voice for those who are too afraid to use theirs.
