Steve Harvey has recruited Paula Deen to help teach young Black men how to cook at “The Steve Harvey Mentoring Weekend for Young Men.”
“Paula and her team has agreed to take as many boys as I want to fly down to Savannah and teach them culinary skills,” Harvey said on his talk show. “That, to me, is how you get something from something. There has to be a good behind everything.”
The business mogul also acknowledges he will receive some backlash as a result of his decision, but as he so eloquently stated, “I don’t give a damn.”
Of course, leave it to Black Twitter to get a hashtag going. Check out the best of #PaulMentoring:

#PaulaMentoring will be about rebuilding her image and not about opportunities for these kids.

This #PaulaMentoring proves that this is why parents need to be in their kids lives because if their not they’ll find someone who will.

I hope those 100 boys have strong backs as they are mentored by Madame Marie Delphine LaLaurie. #PaulaMentoring
