Shirley Sherrod Is a Hero. Give Her Job Back to Her.

Hi everyone!

I was wondering what you all thought of the Shirley Sherrod case that has been all over CNN and Fox News? In this story, Sherrod, a lawyer with the USDA is accused of being a racist and being prejudiced against White farmers. This was based upon a video clip from a speech at an NAACP event in Georgia. The video clip was specifically edited to create this impression; a view of the full speech reveals that she was telling a story about how she managed to get beyond race and to help poor people of all shades. I do hope that she gets her job back.

By the way – Shirley was instrumental in helping the White farmer get his farm back.

Watch Sherrod’s speech here.

Everyone assumed that the video clip published told the whole story: the NAACP, the Agriculture Secretary, and the White House.

I’m just curious. 🙂
