Just one more proof that racism is not one-sided. Racism must be stamped out, whether by the NAACP, or this racist government administrator. Whether KKK, Al Sharpton, or this racist government worker, racism must die. Fire her and any other racists.

@IndependentVoterDelaware

you need to watch the whole video and then apologize to sherrod. she isn't a racist and she deserves to get her job back.

vilsac is the one who should be fired and the obama administration should know better than to act on the lies set forth by breitbart and fox "news"

She's not a racist, just a typical overly-powerful, under-competent bureaucrat. What's wrong with keeping the boot on the neck of whitey, after all?

So Sherrod worked for this non for profit with a mission statement to help poor black farmers in Georgia. Since she helped this poor white farmer she did something her boss told her not to do. So she should have been fired by that not for profit boss. At that juncture sherrod should have sued her boss and not for profit on the grounds of racism. None of that happened. So what is the straight story? Any way you look at it Sherrod was in trouble either from the blacks or whites? Why. Maybe a racist not for profit that she worked for. She did not handle it appropriately. Since she was not fired by that not for profit and she did not sue them for racism.
