This post may not fit that mold.
Some of you or perhaps all of you will know who Paula Deen is. For anyone who does not know, she is/was a personality on Food Network.
She is from Savannah, Georgia and built a very successful business and after becoming a part of Food Network she has built an empire. Well done Paula. She started out as a single mother with two small sons and didn't give up, but worked her way to to who she is now.
Paula has been embroiled in a conflict due to the firing of a white employee who then said Paula was racist and used racist terms. Paula is white. When asked, Paula said (my paraphrasing) yet, I am sure I have long ago. Boy oh boy has the sh_t hit the fan. There are other things also, but who would expect less. You are 66 and grew up in the south. Of course you learned and used certain terms. That was the environment.
Now, here is the posting I put on Facebook this morning. As we age and form our own mindsets we change from where we were to where we are.
I am tired of everyone wearing their feelings on their shoulders. If you know me you know I am FAT. I have been FAT for many years. I have heard comments and chuckles over the years and could really care less. I am not going to moan and groan because someone says something about it. I am not going to try to sue anyone. I am just going to continue living my life.
Starting with my next post, they will go back to normal along with my sometimes weird sense of humor.
