    USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer resigns

    Andrew Breitbart strikes again!

    I can't wait for the excuses from the NAACP and the progressive left.

    Video Shows USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer

    Days after the NAACP clashed with Tea Party members over allegations of racism, a video has surfaced showing an Agriculture Department official regaling an NAACP audience with a story about how she withheld help to a white farmer facing bankruptcy -- video that now has forced the official to resign.

    Shirley Sherrod, the department's Georgia director of Rural Development, is shown in the clip describing "the first time I was faced with having to help a white farmer save his farm." Sherrod, who is black, claimed the farmer took a long time trying to show he was "superior" to her. The audience laughed as she described how she determined his fate.

    "He had to come to me for help. What he didn't know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him," she said. "I was struggling with the fact that so many black people have lost their farmland and here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land -- so I didn't give him the full force of what I could do. I did enough."

    Re: USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer resigns

    I just found out about this today and I understand she already resigned.

    Now, I understand this banquet took place in March, and here it is July and we're just now finding out about it? Why is that? If a white person in her position had said in public what she said it would have been on the front pages of liberal mouthpieces that day. And yet it took the folks at Fox News to break this thing four months after the fact. God bless 'em. I wonder who the rest of the hypocrites were at that banquet who failed to condemn her remarks. I'd ask them "Why the silence?"

    I think some Tea Party Group should pull an NAACP and pass a resolution that alleges the USDA has racist componants and should be called on to publically condemn racism.

    Re: USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer resigns

    Ok. I have ONE contention with this video, I would like to see more of it, I wanted to see where she was actually going with this. Because it appears that yes she did a racist and bad thing, but when she starts talking about how it opened her eyes, and that it's about poor and the fact that even a white person wouldn't help him as much because he was white.

    I dunno, I'm not being an apologist here, but I would like to see what she said AFTER it was cut, I think she had a point to make. However, if it turns out she didn't, then yeah what she did was wrong. But it does sort of feel like there was some overwhelming point about how her mind was changed about race. So, if anyone could find perhaps a longer clip that doesn't conviently cut before she made some overall point, I'd appreciate it.

    "It was revealed to me that it's about poor versus those who have," she said, suggesting she had learned that race is less important.

    At least she got fired.

    Now if the NAACP would like to raise their hypocritical heads up and apologize for not addressing this when it was said at one of their functions.....
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I can't help you there, but she did resign. Seems if what she said was taken out of context, she would have stood up for herself.
    I agree that if she went on to say, "That was the way I used to be, but now I've seen the light and I love all people, even crackers" then maybe she should get a pass.

    Re: USDA Official Saying She Didn't Give 'Full Force' of Help to White Farmer resigns

    As I've said elsewhere: She admitted to doing a bad job therefore she should be fired or resign regardless of any racial issues involved.

    HOWEVER, she was responding to what she considered insulting and racist behavior on the part of that farmer. How many of you would do your best to help a racist who was insulting you?

    Now she wasn't very specific about what caused her to believe that he was talking down to her. If she was just reading into his actions, then yeah she was being racist, but I don't have enough info to say.

    USDA came out with a statement that said they have zero tolerance for racism etc. I guess that's that.

    The liberal media's head is still shoved far up this administrations ass - they can't look around nor do they want to look around and see what's happening. For that, a head extraction would be required and that's not on the horizon any time soon --- the ideologues are running the WH and the media. What's also interesting is the background of this video --- notice all the clapping from the NAACP members as she was talking? Yet -- now 4 months later --- the SHOCK: Racism At NAACP Event? - wcbstv.com, as was all the clapping by the other NAACP members. Jealous needs to understand that only he and the NAACP faithful see their organization as a "a multi-racial, multi-faith organization that-- while generally rooted in African American communities-- fights to end racial discrimination against all Americans." The NAACP is a racist organization and has been for at least the last 30 years. They're hypocrits and I would agree the Tea Party should come out with a resolution vote (whatever that means) the same way the NAACP did - calling the NAACP a racist organization. One good turn deserves another.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
