MEEKS: Take your pick

Take your pick: Paula Deen or Voting Rights. I made my pick and it is the Voting Rights Act. Of course Paula Deen should not use derogatory language in talking about anyone. The environment for her staff should be one that is not fraught with negative behaviors. But she is one person with some employees who can choose to work for her or go elsewhere. People of color who are at risk because of the decision made last week by the Supreme Court cannot go elsewhere to exercise their democratic right to vote.
