In response to Cctoo obviously you are not an African American or minority so therefore you wouldn't know what it's like to be called N word on National television . Deen is from the south , during her young days blacks were not allow to talk back and she refuses to update herself inside her heart but outside its television so she puts on a act . I still like her . Anytime when you are ask a simple question you should answer it easy . Martha Stewart couldn't answer because she feels the same way like Deen and Martha is smart not to violate using insulting comments on television .
