Isn't the issue more that she's still unabashedly racist? I've not read all too much into this because of prior obligations and admittedly a lack of interest in the situation and Deen herself, and I will give her at least a small bit of leeway on the bank robbery event because I can see her anger taking hold in the heat of the moment; but I'm more concerned that this is not just something she said without thinking about the grander connotations of.
If she called that bank robber fellow a nigger and that was that for the accusations against her, then I would be very welcome to giving her the benefit of the doubt that she was attacking the idea of the individual and not of the entire race, of course.
However, even now in a calm and level-headed (as level-headed as Paula Deen can get) state, her comments are still somewhat degrading to blacks as a race with some staggering regularity. Now maybe she's not going to shave off her hair and start an Aryan war, but this is an idea that she's been brought up to think with and I'm not sure she's entirely understanding of the effect her thought processes on race are having with her black employees.
I don't think she's a vitriolic and hate-filled warrior for the racist cause, I just think she's a total fucking moron, and she needs to be led to understand why her words are not the most appropriate to use regularly amongst black-skinned people and be led to understand their plight regarding the pre/mid/post-Civil War from a different perspective so she can gather all her sources and come to terms with that too.
She's not harmful to anyone, she's just oblivious to why people are upset about what she's said. I'd readily accept her being given back her shows and merchandising etc. if she were just shown how to conduct herself amongst a large audience of people and not offend half of them.
