I am about sick of Paula Deen trying to prove that she is not a racist and this was just the dumbest thing she can do! Paula Deen has fired her entire legal team in the ongoing fallout from the racial slurs scandal that have sunk her career.
What started out as the defense of a civil lawsuit has turned into an operation to try and salvage what’s left of Deen’s business empire after she lost a host of major sponsors and her slot on the Food Network.
According to court documents, Deen has replaced Savannah-based firm Oliver Maner with Grace Speights, a Washington, D.C.-based partner in Morgan, Lewis & Bockius’ Labor and Employment practice. race Speights is considered something of a pioneer as the first African-American woman to become a partner at her law firm.
She has also been a keynote speaker at the Attorneys of Color Conference. The hiring could be seen by a cynical move by Deen who is keen to point out she is not a racist after her recent troubles. at the end of the day, this is not going to change the fact that she is a closeted racist. That fool will do ANYTHING to save face. Too bad Lawyer Bojangles won’t save her. It’s a done deal.
