    SHOCK: Video Suggests Racism At NAACP Event

    On Monday, Breitbart posted a video of a speech by Shirley Sherrod, USDA Rural Development Georgia State Director, delivered at the NAACP's 20th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet.

    The video shows Sherrod speaking of racial considerations being a factor for how much help she would give.

    "The first time I was faced with having to help a white farmer save his farm, he took a long time talking but he was trying to show me he was superior to me. I know what he was doing, but he had 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," Sherrod said.

    "I was struggling with the fact that so many black people had 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," Sherrod said. "So that when he, I assumed the Department of Agriculture had sent him to me, either that or the Georgia Department of Agriculture, and he needed to go back and report that I did try to help him."

    In the video, Sherrod also spoke of referring the white farmer to a white lawyer, thinking the latter would be more sympathetic because of race. "So I took him to a white lawyer that had attended some of training that we had provided because Chapter 12 bankruptcy had just been enacted for the family farm. So I figured if I take him to one of them, that his own kind would take care of him."

    Wait, this can't be racist, she's black!

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    First off she should be fired if she is still employed as such. You don't publicly admit to doing a crappy job even when you think the people you were helping are being jerks to you.

    But ask yourself honestly, if someone comes to you needing help and then they start insulting you, how would you respond? To the best of your abilities? I doubt most would.
    I don't see anything wrong with diverting an overtly racist white person to other white public servants who won't have the opportunity to be offended in the course of doing their job.

    I'm curious what the rest of her speech went. It seemed like she was relating a tale about lessons learned and how in fact, her past response to percieved racist behavior on the part of the white farmer wasn't correct. And then of course the video cuts out before we can hear that.

    Is she racist? I guess I would want to see the behavior she was referencing. Did she just assume he was going to be a jerk read that into his actions, or was that guy really an ***hole to her?

    More like: Racist black gal working for the government and speaking to the NAACP and getting applause for said racism... NO WAY!!!

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    Looks like another taken out of context much to do about nothing.... she was telling a personal story about her own attitudes about race and how 20 years ago she learned from her own racist tendencies and grew beyond them. Any good Christian can tell you a great story of personal transformation contrasting who they once were with who they have become. That is all this is.

    Once again, the regressives must regress 20 years to prove their point when the liberals can consistently draw on contemporary examples as the regressive foobles are so common and readily at hand. Crawl back into your cave Faux News and try again. BTW... nice job screwing up her career and boo-hiss to an administration with a weak backbone that seems so capable of being bounced around in the surf rather than just cruising above it.
