    On Monday July 19th, video was released of Georgia Director of Rural Development Shirley Sherrod admitting in a speech at an NAACP banquet in March that she discriminated against farmers because of their race. Sherrod was appointed last year by Obama’s Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. After the video was released, where Sherrod told NAACP members that she refused to fully assist a white farmer because of his race, the Obama Administration forced her to resign.


    Following the release of this inflammatory tape NAACP President Ben Jealous released a statement denouncing not only the racist remarks by Shirley Sherrod but also the reaction of the crowd to her speech. NAACP President Ben Jealous even promised to look into the disturbing behavior of those in attendance.

    “Since our founding in 1909, the NAACP has been a multi-racial, multi-faith organization that– while generally rooted in African American communities– fights to end racial discrimination against all Americans.

    We concur with US Agriculture Secretary Vilsack in accepting the resignation of Shirley Sherrod for her remarks at a local NAACP Freedom Fund banquet.

    Racism is about the abuse of power. Sherrod had it in her position at USDA. According to her remarks, she mistreated a white farmer in need of assistance because of his race.

    We are appalled by her actions, just as we are with abuses of power against farmers of color and female farmers.

    Her actions were shameful. While she went on to explain in the story that she ultimately realized her mistake, as well as the common predicament of working people of all races, she gave no indication she had attempted to right the wrong she had done to this man.

    The reaction from many in the audience is disturbing. We will be looking into the behavior of NAACP representatives at this local event and take any appropriate action.

    We thank those who brought this to our national office’s attention…

    But, President Jealous forgot to mention one thing.
    He was in the audience.
    If you listen to the Sherrod’s speech at Annual NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner in Georgia in March you’ll here her thank her guests and…
    “The President who is with us tonight.”
    (0:45 seconds into the speech)

    So he issued the statement despite being present during the speech and knowing exactly what she said.

    I'm telling you, there is more to this story.

    The NAACP is yet another example of institutionalized liberal racism in America.

    What a moron to have been at the very event he issues a statement denouncing her.

    And let us not forget the Obama White House going into full on panic mode to have her fired/resign.

    Very odd behavior...
