    Early this morning, on my local news, they showed a video clip of the ''white farmers'' that Sherrod spoke about....

    I cant find that video to post, but i did find this one....the farmer begins to speak at around 1:20.

    So, the real question about the "Sherrod forced to resign" part of the story is why the Administration did not care enough about finding out the truth of the matter before forcing Sherrod to pull over to the side of the road and text her resignation?

    Does the truth not matter to them? "Just get ahead of the news-cycle is all that's important." Let the bodies fall where they might.

    Now they think they might hire her back? Hopefully she has more dignity than to accept.

    So, you're saying that since she helped a white farmer when she was 17, then she should be exonerated from making any racist remarks now?

    This was a great Hack job by the, so called news channel, FOX. They are pretty good at reporting half truths and editing tape to suit their political means.
