Paula Deen is not doing well in the market. Walmart dropped her. Caesars dropped her. And the Food Network dropped her.

The market does not tolerate racism…or sexism, or pretty much any -ism that isn’t making money-ism. An -ism tolerated by any part of the market is an opportunity for another part of the market to capitalize upon. In this respect, the aggregate and dispersed knowledge of the masses is far more logical than any individual or small group (read: politician or government) ever could be. With freedom and markets come equal opportunity, dignity, respect; no government intervention needed.
