    Let me guess, you are a white person?
    Do you realize she spoke about her father being murdered by white people, there were three witnesses, yet there was nobody prosecuted for this crime.
    I am sorry but you are wrong, the experiences of a black person and a white person are NOT equivalent in a white dominated country.

    These "If a white man..." equivalencies are bull crap and you should know it.

    I think that's a racist attitude.

    @ Middleground -- I was curious, so I looked it up:
    In the full 43-minute video, Sherrod also criticized what she called the "mean-spirited" reaction to the Democratic health care bill. "Some of the racism we thought was buried, didn't it surface?" she said. "Now we endured eight years of the Bushes, and we didn't do the stuff these Republicans are doing because you have a black president."

    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re 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.”

    Re: White House apologizes to ousted official

    Does anyone remember all the enraged posts that the conservatives here did when Rush Limbaugh made comments like these:

    “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

    “Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”

    “They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?”

    “We need segregated buses."


    And how they all demanded he resign? And that his statements were reprehensible and how he was a terrible racist?

    Yeah, me neither.

    I could have sworn Limbaugh was a political commentator/satirist.... when did he go to work for the government ??

    This is just disgusting. Until people start treating racism equally in both directions, it's going to be a problem. Racism is racism. It doesn't matter at all whether it's black vs. white, white vs. black, black vs. asian. It's all the same. It's idiotic to say otherwise.

    Give me a source. I always have thought he was a sexist pig. Give me a source for these and he's a racist pig too. Those comments are disgusting.

    Ah, so not only is there a different standard when you're white, but there's one as to whether you work for the government or not? If you're not working for the government, it's not a racist a statement?

    By that standard, nothing this woman did was wrong since it all happened 24 years ago before she was a government employee, huh?
