    Ahh, so in the "whole" video, the audience didn't laugh and applaud ???? Yeah, I believe that one..

    Love the left's hypocrisy.

    They knee-jerked (as did the White House) which was stupid of them. That does not change the fact that those in the video where not applauding racism, no?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Did you watch the whole video, Gill? Is that the impression you got? That they are all racists and applauded racism? Is that your stand?

    Well, you can't know that for sure, because you don't know every person at that lecture, or what is in their hearts. So are you saying that you now speak for the NAACP members in attendence 24 years ago? Were you even alive?

    You're kidding me, right?

    Do you actually think this video was taken 24 years ago?

    Man, oh man... you should recuse yourself from this discussion since you're not even barely aware of the facts.

    YouTube - NAACP Bigotry in their ranks

    She really never admits her racist attitudes were wrong, she just shifts it to class warfare.

    Shoddy journalism on the part of Breitbart and FOX News - Check
    Jumping to a conclusion without viewing their own video (NAACP) - Check
    Jumping to a conclusion without knowing all the facts by the WH - Check

    Folks, I find it interesting that the left is screaming bloody murder over this and yet when the liberal media, the NAACP and elected officials do the same exact thing when crying racism from the Tea Party (with no proof or when taking things out of context), they turn a blind eye to it. It's hypocrisy at it's finest, and it's on display for anyone who thinks for themselves to see. Context is important!

    Shirley Sherrod said plenty of things in that speech to be concerned about. Yes, she used the story in the initial video that was released as a turning point when seen in the full video. But when you see the full video, she also says several things that are questionable and racist in nature. And now that the Obama administration made a fool of themselves yet again, Sherrod has been offered a different position. If anything that this woman has said or done other than what is in this video comes to light, the Obama administration will have egg on their face yet again. They are stuck with this woman and she could further expose the incompetence from this administration.

    As for the conservative hacks in this thread, you are just as bad as the liberal hacks. You too need to take off your rose colored glasses and look at this from every perspective and from every angle. No one is coming out of this smelling like a rose. With the exception of Glenn Beck, who defended this woman from the beginning, no one has been fair or balanced. Even O'Reilly apologized on last night's show, and I applaud him for doing so, just as I applauded the WH for their admission of jumping to a conclusion without all the facts.

    Re: White House apologizes to ousted official

    I'm just hoping the White House doesn't have to apologize for apologizing.

    If this woman were in private business, she would not have been offered her job back. If this woman were white and made the same type comments reversed, she would not have been offered her job back. I think she used poor judgement, in any case. Race (racism) is a hot button that she pressed. Personally, I think she should have known better.

    I'm not even sure I understand why the White House apologized. It's my understanding they made calls, but did they say fire her? Or solve this problem?

    Breitbart, on the other hand, should completely lose any credibility he had as a journalist. I hope she sues him. If his rights are protected under Free Speech, well, that's just wrong.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
