    Using solely the 40 minutes of full video of her at the NAACP - no. She has since said some very stupid things and she does use language that is racially flammable which, if used by a WHITE person, would have labelled that white person a racist and would have caused a HUGE uproar - and she may still be one. But based solely on that video - she should not have been fired for something which happened 24 years ago, nor should she have been (more accurately) forced to resign by the side of the road.
    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.

    Does anyone know if the person who tried ruining her career (the editors and/or distributors) can be charged with slander? If so, could they be brought to court even though her record has been straightened out?


    I sure do hope someone is held responsible and they have to pay dearly. But it's enough for me to see the egg on the face of the rightwing propaganda machine. Hopefully SOME will learn from this. (But I doubt it.)

    In all fairness, given the information fraudently put out there by the rightwing media, I can hardly blame folks for getting in an uproar.

    The pen is mightier than the sword. You may recall, with the help from the media (especially FAUXNews), our very own congress, (as well as the public masses,) was fooled into going to war with Iraq. This Sherrod story is minor compared to that attrocity, but I digress.

    You are catching on. The correlary is that The Obama administration reacts too slow(troop requests, Gulf, etc), except when they react to fast. Obama is too rude(Israel), except when he is too polite(bowing). I could go on...

    Ummm, yeah, right. Are you serious? She was used as a political pawn, and I don't recall ever saying anything about racism. Maybe you're confusing me with someone else.

    I'm quite surprised at the poll results.

    Which way do you mean, the raw numbers, or the numbers when you look at who voted for each. This is one of those cases where nonmembers have spammed the poll.
