We have to admit, it broke our hearts to hear that Paula Deen made racist remarks. She was one of the many reasons we tuned in to the Food Network (who doesn't want to watch things cooked in butter, only to be covered with more butter?). Unfortunately, her poor choice of words has led her to be fired from the network.

After a day since President Barack Obama announced his Cabinet nomination, he is already feeling the heat from conservatives about his pick. Dominican American Thomas Perez was offered the seat as the next Secretary of Labor to replace Hilda Solis since her resignation, but Rush Limbaugh recently went on a rant about the civil rights lawyer.

Rush Limbaugh, the conservative Republican pundit who has often made unsubstantiated claims about Latino immigrants, has done it again. In a new rant on his radio show this past Wednesday, the most listened to radio show in the U.S., the host claimed that Mexicans are lazy and government-dependent.
In his lecture, he tries to explain why the new wave of Latino immigrants differs from other, earlier immigrations. To put it bluntly, he believes that Cubans work hard, while Mexicans do not -- and that it all has to do with cultural upbringing.

During his radio show this week, Rush Limbaugh once again attacked Judge Sonia Sotomayor. This time he lashed out at her for being a member of the Belizean Grove, a private organization of female professionals, saying, "I think I'm going to send Sotomayor and her club a bunch of vacuum cleaners to help them clean up after their meetings." Get it? He's saying all Latinas are maids and cleaning ladies. Hysterical, right?
