Shirley Sherrod NAACP FULL Video Earns HALF an Apology

Here is the full NAACP video:

I love it when I am right!

In this post and the annotations to this video I made some guesses about the actual content of a rather severely spun edit of Shirley Sherrod’s NAACP talk…Turns out I was dead on the money!

Shirley was indeed referring to how she used to be” and lecturing he audience on how we need to be more color-blind; but she only manages to she that her own racism is still deeply embedded…

Speaking about the USDA jobs for minorities she speaks of it being biased toward hiring blacks, no problem with that but, instead of talking about how that opens a door for personal and career development she touts the Once you get a Federal Job as a Protected minority you are set for life” mindset!

She talks about no loans going to black business in Georgia from the stimulus…

What is a black business? Is this a business owned ONLY by blacks, or one that has blacks among the owners? Is it majority black ownership?

How many of these “black businesses” qualify for the loans?

How many have applied?

What is the percentage breakdown between black and white “owned” biz’s in Georgia that qualify and have applied?

Is marketing of the information regarding these loans evenly distributed across the state regardless of race?

Enquiring minds want to know Virginia!

Here are some telling quotes for those who claim she hasn’t a racist bone in her body…

“…coming out of slavery,Black people used to help each other; that’s how they built the schools that we have. Ya know… That’s how they bought the land that we have; that [we’ve let] by lost all of it. Ya know there are people [we/they?] had over 15 million acres and [theres?] black we have less than 2 million acres of farmland left. And we will sell it for nothing, for nothing! ”
“We found some honest lawyers; they were white… I wish I could say that about all lawyers, especially black lawyers – but they will nickel and dime you to death.”

(audience laughs)

“I am sorry but I do not have a good opinion of most lawyers.”…

“reach back and help somebody, that’s what we were taught, that’s what “our” folk did!”…
“it looks like the more, the better we do, the more free we are, the more divided we become”…

She sounds like Bill Cosby when he got in trouble for blaming blacks for not doing better in school and career.

“Its not abut black and white, well it IS about black and white, you know“…

And of course the knee-jerk reflex of the year, Republicans all oppose the health care bill …

“…Because they have a black president”

Shirley Sherrod Repent! Your Sin Is upon You!

Thank you Andrew Breitbart for this concise and cutting critique of the Mainstream Media and American Politics.

Video Proof: The NAACP Awards Racism–2010

by Andrew Breitbart Context is everything.

In this piece you will see video evidence of racism coming from a federal appointee and NAACP award recipient…

…The media that provided the left a platform to accuse the Tea Party, all the while refusing to air any exculpatory evidence. Again, the mainstream media inserts itself as the number one weapon in the progressive weapons stash. Political correctness, as the Duke Lacrosse case exemplified, trumps all in PC America and her afflicted media.

But the new media will not be silenced. It will not allow for the main stream media to propagate hateful and hurtful lies in order to save the Democratic Party from the toxic choices it has made over the past few years. And by bringing up race, and demanding a zero tolerance of racism, the left, and the NAACP in particular, has opened itself up for scrutiny.

Shirley Sherrod, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development, speaks at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia. In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.

In the first video, Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.

Sherrod’s racist tale is received by the NAACP audience with nodding approval and murmurs of recognition and agreement. Hardly the behavior of the group now holding itself up as the supreme judge of another groups’ racial tolerance.

…The NAACP which has transformed from a civil rights group to a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party and social-justice politics, supports a new America that relies less on individualism, entrepreneurialism and American grit, but instead giddily embraces, the un-American notion of unaccountability and government dependence.

Here is the Video…

Read It All…

To be completely fair I must say that my impression is that Madam Sherrod is recounting “past” racism on her part to try to convince her audience that Back on White racism really is not ok… but that is reading into it a lot and giving her the benefit of the doubt, I want to see the whole speech! Even if my theory is correct she is a little to smug and her audience WAY too approving for this to be innocent even if Breitbart’s analysis is spun too hard to the Right.
