“Big Brother” Houseguest GinaMarie Zimmerman Fired For Saying The N-Word & Making Racist Comments

"Big Brother" Houseguest GinaMarie Zimmerman Fired For Saying The N-Word & Making Racist Comments

What is it about “Big Brother” that inherently lends itself to racism? Every time a new season begins, the majority of the controversy seems to surround racism. I guess when you put a bunch of racist idiots together, that’s what ends up happening.

The latest instigator of idiotic racism is GinaMarie Zimmerman – the “Big Brother” houseguest who has now been fired from her day job for saying the N-word on TV. Obviously, these idiots sometimes don’t realize that “Big Brother” airs on television and everybody in the country is watching them — or maybe they just don’t care, and will do anything for their fifteen minutes of fame.

Either way, GinaMarie is going to be very surprised when she leaves the “Big Brother” household because she has been fired from her day job as the pageant coordinator for East Coast USA Pageant. The main reason for this firing? Well, other than GinaMarie’s regular racist rants, she was also captured saying that welfare was “n**ger insurance.” Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…

You know the fashion industry is in a bad place when a model doesn’t mind being cut from a runway show for the size of her boobs because she’s usually dropped from shows for her race. Yesterday, Jourdan Dunn tweeted that she had been cut from the Christian Dior Couture show in Paris that took place today. She was obviously annoyed, but laughed it off, understanding that the expectations of the modeling industry are ridiculous. Her next tweet, however, explained why she was so easygoing about the unfairness with which she was treated. She said,

“I’m normally told I’m cancelled because I’m ‘coloured’ so being cancelled because off my  boobs is minor.” Keep reading »

liz jones says rihanna invites rape
  • Granted, the UK’s Daily Mail (aka the Daily Fail) is not the place you go to read nuanced, tasteful analysis, but writing that Rihanna “surely invites rape [and] disrespect” by wearing provocative clothes is a new low. Writer Liz Jones also said it’s “fair” to “berate female stars” more than young male ones because “young women are far more impressionable than young men.” No citation for that ‘fact,’ of course! Jones additionally bopped Rihanna for her “fake hair” and “false nails” and for trying to portray herself “as ‘real,’ as ‘street.’” Oh STFU, lady! [Daily Mail UK]

Paula Deen Cries On "The Today Show"
"Would I have fired me. Knowing me? No."

Paula Deen made her much anticipated appearance on “The Today Show” this morning and attempted to convince Matt Lauer and the public that she is not a racist. Deen insisted that she only ever used the n-word once, during the incident mentioned in her deposition, and went on to say, “If there’s anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. Please. I want to meet you. I is what I is and I’m not changing.” And neither is my opinion of you, Paula. Bye, y’all! Watch the full interview above. [MSNBC]

Casual racism is really having a moment these days. The next pseudo-celeb to stick their foot in their mouth is Kate Gosselin, of “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ fame. Take a gander at this picture. It’s confusing, I know, so let me break it down for you. Kate Gosselin, white woman, mother of eight lovely multi-racial children, is wearing a plastic geisha wig and pulling her eyes back in the manner of playground idiots since time immemorial. What gives, Kate? Maybe she felt her star slipping, and, seeing the “success” Paula Deen is having a of late, was inspired to attempt a curated controversy. Maybe she’s just not the brightest star in the sky. Naturally, the brouhaha she created necessitated a response, so Gosselin took to her personal blog with a response, writing:

Evidently, a fan sent [the wig] for me to wear so that I too could “be Asian” like the rest of my family. At that time, a common topic of our show was “everybody’s Asian” — except for mommy, so a thoughtful fan figured she’d help me look Asian too! It’s normal to talk about and even “exaggerate” the feature differences between family members of a biracial family as they are noticed by curious growing children within the family. These types of discoveries and at home discussions are a normal part of being a loving accepting biracial family and it does not make any of us prejudice!

Paula Deen racism

“Paula and Bubba just gave us beer and alcohol and I don’t even drink.  It was insulting and unfair.  I was like, ‘Pay me! She knew I had just gotten married.  I had a baby on the way.  I needed the money and I was the only one to step up and complain over it because half of the kitchen just needed their jobs.  I was fired over it in the end because I’m not afraid to speak my mind.”

––Oh, Paula, Paula, Paula. This is the new claim made by an African-American oyster cook that was employed at one of Paula Deen’s restaurants from 2008 to 2010. He claims that Deen threatened to fire her employees if they did not work overtime at the parties she held at her Savannah, Georgia, mansion. It’s been a (rightfully!) rough week for Deen, who last week publicly apologized for racist comments and lost her show at the Food Network. Stay tuned for more dodgy stories coming out. [Radar Online]

UPDATE, 4:45p.m.: Via Jezebel, Horizon Science Academy has posted an apology on their web site and said it will “correct the information” in its dress code, as well as send out an updated version. [HorizonLorain.org]

School dress codes are generally a great thing for kids. The mission statement of the new dress code at The Horizon Science Academy in Lorain, Ohio is a very promising one; the goal is to decrease the pressure on students to fit in with their clothing. It diminishes socioeconomic differences between students and creates a sense of unity at school. All good ideas, but this dress code in particular has a very strange and racist stipulation: it inexplicably bans afro-puffs and small twisted braids. Keep reading »

“The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie. I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America … after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War … It was not only black men, it was black women … I would say they were slaves.”

– Holy fucking hell Paula Deen. The Food TV personality admitted that she’d hired black cater waiters to simulate pre-Civil War-era slaves for a colonial-themed wedding. The statement was made during her deposition in regards to a lawsuit in which former black employees of her Savannah, Georgia, restaurant claimed Deen and her brother Bubba forced them to use separate bathrooms and repeatedly used the N-word.

According to Lisa Jackson, who worked as a general manager at the Savannah outpost, Deen was prone to making offensive comments about black people. In her deposition, Jackson said that Deen once told her,”Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n*****s to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around. Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.” Keep reading »

"This Country Is Still Built On Racism"

Even Talib Kweli is, like, damn, that’s a cold-ass honky

Appearing this week on Vlad TV (aka “the TMZ of hip hop”), the Brooklyn-born rapper was asked about white privilege in hip hop. Specifically, how being Caucasian can help some artists, like Mac Miller, make it to #1 on the charts. Kweli gave he honest (and true) assessment:

“I agree with that. This country is still based on racism. That will never change unless we tear it down and start over. White privilege is a real thing. And especially white male privilege. I have male privilege as a black male. But I don’t have white male privilege.” Keep reading »
