Paula Deen is crazy as a fox. She’s also a racist. While she probably has an idea that she’s one or five crayons short of a pack, she’s still being stubborn about the latter part. In an interview with Matt Lauer, Deen was asked if she was a racist and she replied “no.” Then, when Lauer asked her if the “n word” was offensive to black people, she gave a puzzling answer:

I don’t know, I have asked myself that so many times. It’s very distressing for me to go into my kitchens and hear what these young people are calling each other … it’s very distressing for me. I think for this problem to be worked on, that these young people are gonna have to take control and start showing respect for each other.

To recap: Deen doesn’t know if an extremely racist word is racist because… Kids these days. Yes, Deen, America’s youth is to blame for your racism. It’s quite a stretch, but like we said, craaaaaazyyyyy.
