    That doesn't fly brother.


    question your own honesty before you attack others ok?

    Oh, and, um, if a black person needs to hire a lawyer, he'd probably be better off if he sticks to his own kind.

    Justa...

    You're being very disingenuous. If you truly watched the video you know full well Mrs. Sheddon did not refuse to provide full and equal service to Mr. Spooner while working for the USDA. If fact, you don't have to watch the video. You just have to read any news article on this matter from today!

    From FoxNews.com
    Agriculture Secretary Offers to Rehire Ousted Civil Servant
    Published July 21, 2010

    Sherrod [was] telling a story about how she didn't give a white farmer her "full" help, she later said the incident happened 24 years ago and that the story was meant to show how she learned from her mistakes.

    Subsequent news reports in which Sherrod explained the full context of her remarks -- later substantiated by the wife of the white farmer in an interview with FoxNews.com -- sparked growing calls for the administration and Vilsack to reconsider the ouster.

    The extended video released by the NAACP on Tuesday night showed Sherrod explaining how she initially didn't help the farmer with "full force," but realized she was wrong and went on to help him save his farm.

    Sherrod, who is black and was working at the time for a nonprofit group, said she learned that the plight of poverty goes beyond race.
    The only way you missed that from any of the previous articles on this matter is if you chose to ignore it. The only way you miss it now is if you refuse to accept the truth.

    For what it's worth, I'm glad the AgSec has not only offerred to rehire Mrs. Sheddon but has offerred her a new position within the Dept. of Agriculture.

    yes, seems you insist the earth is flat while the facts show that it is round

    no, she did not refuse to provide him assistance while she was an employee of the USDA
    yes, she insisted that the white farmer needed to also have a white attorney
    appears she made that decision based entirely on the race of the lawyer and the race of the prospective client
    that was a racially motivated decision. when that is found racism is exhibited

    i suspect you intended to make a point with that. try again

    from your posts it is obvious you would not recognize the truth if it bit you on the ass
    i have cited for you the three instances in which the woman's speech as a USDA official violated the federal standards of conduct
    and you only ignore those violations
    it can only be assumed you recognize that those violations of federal standards undermine your very weak argument

    For what it's worth, I'm glad the AgSec has not only offerred to rehire Mrs. Sheddon but has offerred her a new position within the Dept. of Agriculture.
    you applaud an individual appointed to a position of authority in the federal government despite the evidence that she has violated the federal standards of conduct
    this only underscores the widely held belief among career civil service that Obama's political appointees are as incompetent as dubya bin lyin's
    that is a sad commentary on America and her future
    but it is one you applaud
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    So you should advise people to seek out racists?

    And yes, to advise someone to "seek out their own kind" is racist. Good thing Sherrod realized her mistake 20 years ago and is now teaching others that such ideas are wrong.
