Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push Coalition releases its findings about Paula Deen's restaurants.

The coalition conducted a two-week investigation, including employee interviews, to look into allegations of employment discrimination.

"We have found both good and bad...both good and bad statements from employees on record."

"More employees have come to us with complaints about disparaging racial remarks that have been made towards them, the failure to promote African-American and female employees, and also, a general environment of racial tension and a feeling that all Caucasian employees were treated better because of their race."

Within the next few days, the Rainbow Push Coalition expects Deen Enterprises to produce a plan to address those allegations.
