Black USDA official resigns after saying she only 'did enough' for white farmer

There’s no doubt in my mind that racism is rampant in this country. Here’s just another example. Anyone can be a racist, regardless of their color. This nation doesn’t really want a “national dialogue” on race relations. Americans tend to hide behind false facades regarding racial equality publically, but privately many have issues with people of another color. Be it black, brown, yellow, or white. 


A black USDA official in Georgia has resigned after publicly admitting she didn't help a white man trying to save his farm to the "full force" of her power and instead referred him to "one of his own."

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack accepted Shirley Sherrod's resignation, saying there was "zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA."

Did you investigate the rest of the story? Did you review the whole tape of what this women said? What the media originally shown was the statement that has aired, not what her whole intention was. That in her early days she was a racist and as she became wiser she realized she was wrong. Her speech to the NAACP was addressing the fact that color should have no barriers. Just thought you might review this issue and not rely on the right wing bs.
