Rev. Jesse Jackson has thrown his hat into the Paula Deen Scandal of 2013 by agreeing to help the pastry mogul.

Check it out after the break!

Civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson has agreed to help celebrity chef Paula Butter Loving Deen. Rev. Jackson is going to help Paula make amends for her past use of a racial slur, saying she shouldn’t become a “sacrificial lamb” over the issue of racial intolerance.


Jackson told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Paula called him this week, and they discussed how she might recover.

Jackson says if Paula Deen is willing to acknowledge mistakes and make changes, “she should be reclaimed rather than destroyed.”

Jackson says he’s more troubled by racial disparities in jobs, lending, health care, business opportunities and the criminal justice system.

Her admission of using the slur first came in a lawsuit deposition. It later cost her an endorsement deal with Smithfield Foods and her job with the Food Network.

Jesse Jackson like Stacey Dash must need some press shine. We really not mad at him; SHINE is SHINE. Sigh….
