White House Apologizes To USDA Employee Shirley Sherrod Over Firing

 

Sherrod says Ag secretary offers to hire her back…

USDA employee Shirley Sherrod was telling a story about her experience working with a white  farmer in Georgia over twenty years ago. That experience  working to save a white farmer’s farm transcended Ms. Sherrod’s own racial bias into an advocate for poor farmers black or white.

Conservative online publisher Andrew Breitbart  released a viral video edited to 40 seconds that was edited to a sound bite of Ms. Sherrod exclaiming racial bias but the whole video clearly shows she is conveying a much larger story about her involvement in helping the white farmer save his land and helping the poor no matter their race or color.
