Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Building Bridges, the National Edition
with Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
*******
Restaurant Labor Leader Responds to Paula Deen Controversy:
For Restaurant Workers Discrimination Is As American As Apple Pie
with
Saru Jayaraman, Co-Founder and Co-Director, Restaurant
Opportunities Centers United, Director of the Food Labor Research
Center at U.C. Berkeley, author Behind the Kitchen Door

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Lisa Jackson who sued Paula Deen, said that her “lawsuit has never
been about the "N-word,”  its purpose was “to address Deen’s patterns
of disrespect and degradation of people that she deems to be inferior.”  
The former manager at Deen’s restaurant Uncle Bubba's Seafood and
Oyster House, sued Deen and her brother Bubba Hiers saying that the
work environment was rife with discrimination, and she could no longer
tolerate Deen’s abuse of power as an owner, nor Mr. Hier’s despicable
behavior routinely.  Unfortunately, the revelations about  Deen's treatment
of workers of color is neither new or unique in the restaurant industry.
More than a third of all workers of color, when surveyed reported
experiencing discriminatory treatment on the basis of race, including
verbal abuse, being passed over  a promotion, racial epithets, and more.
This treatment has real impact for the lives of workers and their families -
because they have been discriminated against, workers of color are
segregated into the industry's lowest-paying positions and segments
(e.g. fast food rather than fine dining). Saru Jayaraman takes us Behind
The Kitchen Door to expose the extensive discrimination and hardships
of restaurant workers.
