OMG!!! Happy ending my ass!!! There's nothing joyful and triumphant about this!!! Not a damned thing!!!
To answer your question Mr. V, had this been a White man who was speaking to an all White audience giving his redemption story on fostering better race relations and his speech was wrongfully edited in order to further spread racial hatred and he got fired as a result of this wrong doing, I'd be backing him, too.
Right is right, and wrong is wrong. Those of us who prejudged Mrs. Sheddon all got it wrong. But for some people like yourself, it really doesn't matter. You'll still find some angle to justify your racial bigotry. What's even sadder is this is exactly the kind of racial intolerance Mrs. Sheddon advocated against.
Sidenote: I contacted Mrs. Sheddon's office at the GA Dept of Ag, Rural Development, spoke to her secretary and issued my apologies. For those who may wish to do the same, you can go to USDA.gov and search for Mrs. Sheddon under the directory. My hope is that this wrong is corrected expeditiously.
