Paula Deen, the Butter Golem, is just super racist y'all

Not only did she make her black employees use separate bathrooms from the white employees, she intentionally hired all-black crews because they reminded her pleasantly of slavery. Way more awful details available here. Paula Deen's Dream Dinner Party Waiters: Black Slaves in White Jackets
Paula Deen was questioned for three hours regarding the $1.2 million lawsuit filed by the general manager of their Savannah restaurant last year, which alleged that Paula and her brother Bubba made black and white employees use separate bathrooms, threw the N-word around, repeatedly told racist and sexist jokes, and other shit your drunk grandpa might do at a block party. When Deen was asked if she used the N-word, she replied: "Yes, of course." Then she was asked why in the world she would say something about wanting to hire black cater waiters to pretend to be "slaves" at an old-school Southern wedding. She responded by saying that she got the idea when she was at an event with black cater waiters, and is also just generally a racist. “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.”

USPS refuses to deliver mail to frat house because these bros are total dicks

"Hey our mail carrier is a black guy. Wouldn't it be funny if we had deliver an endless number of packages addressed to NIGGER FAGGOT?" No, no it would not. Joe. My. God.: USPS Suspends Service To Chicago Frat House After Racist & Homophobic "Prank"
The Postal Service has suspended mail service to the University of Chicago's Phi Delta Theta fraternity after a racist and homophobic "prank" was pulled on a mailman. Postal carrier Iran Becton said about a week after Memorial Day he had an order to deliver dozens of postal supply boxes to the Phi Delta Theta fraternity at 56th Street and University on campus. The Sun-Times Mary Mitchell reports, it took Becton six or seven trips to deliver the packages until one of the fraternity members told Becton to read the name on the order “Reggin Toggaf” backwards. Reversing the names, the first name is a racial slur. The last name is a slur for gay men.

This hotel keeps killing people with a carbon monoxide leak, keeps renting the room

Dudes, you should probably get that fixed. How Three People Died Of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning In The Same Motel Room, Six Weeks Apart – Consumerist
Back in April, an elderly couple died while staying in a Best Western motel in North Carolina. The local medical examiner couldn’t find a clear cause of death. The motel continued renting the room to others until last week, when an 11-year-old boy died and his mother was rushed to the hospital. The cause? Carbon monoxide poisoning from the pool heater. Here’s the galling part: while waiting for toxicology results, motel management just kept renting out the room to other guests. If management had some something wacky like hold off on renting that room until the results came back, maybe no one else would have died. The Charlotte Observer, hometown newspaper of the 11-year-old, reporters learned that in other jurisdictions, blood tests for carbon monoxide poisoning come back in a matter of hours, not weeks. The room in question happens to be right over the motel’s mechanical room. Carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, deadly gas, seeped into the room through either the air conditioner or the gas fireplace vents. Officials believe that the gas came from the pool heater. Fire codes dictate that new houses built in North Carolina need carbon monoxide detectors, but they’re not required in motels. No staff from the medical examiner’s office visited the scene in April, and local emergency responders don’t carry equipment to detect carbon monoxide. Blood test results would have showed that the elderly couple in April died of carbon monoxide poisoning. They were kicking off a three-week vacation, but died within hours of each other instead. The family didn’t believe that both parents, who were active and in good health, died of abrupt and simultaneous heart attacks. “Do you know how mad I am right now? Why are they still renting out this room?” their son asked reporters after learning about the child’s death in the same room. . . .

Parents, don't let your teenagers carve their names into priceless ancient artifacts

Teenager Carves His Own Name Into 3,500-Year-Old Egyptian Relic
A family in Nanjing, China, was left embarrassed and apologetic after their 15-year-old son was found to have defaced an ancient Egyptian relic with the phrase "Ding Jinhao was here." A photo of the 3,500-year-old Luxor temple relic and the teenager's contribution was posted by another tourist to the Chinese social networking site Weibo last Friday. It sparked significant outrage, which led to a massive "human flesh search" for the boy's identity. He was eventually tracked down to a middle school in the Jiangsu Province capital, and reporters soon arrived in droves to interview the boy's family.
