    If they only knew. Most of us African Americans spend so much time dealing with our own issues, just as whites do, that we don’t have time to dedicate to plotting to hate anyone. I think those who are pushing the “African Americans are racist and want to harm you” card, would be quite surprised to discover that they have been fed a steady diet of daily BS meant to make them afraid of every AA they see, including President Obama. We also have jobs, families to care for, and financial/other problems to deal with. Furthermore, I often wonder what makes certain people so fearful of others.

    Very informative and enlightening. I have one obvious question:

    As written the article above:
    “On July 19, reported: “Days after the NAACP clashed with Tea Party members over allegations of racism, a video has surfaced showing an Agriculture Department official regaling an NAACP audience with a story about how she withheld help to a white farmer facing bankruptcy.” The article further reported that “[t]he video clip was first posted by” and that “ is seeking a response from both the NAACP and the USDA.” The article is no longer available on but was republished on another website”

    Please publish the address of the website which re-published the FoxNews article. I am certainly interested in viewing the evidence more closely.

    What Dean has to say about anything is as relevant as what Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.have to say. Why any news outlet gives these three clowns air time is beyond me. Than again, I’m just a racist.

    I didn’t see the answer to my previous question.

    You wrote: …”The article is no longer available on but was republished on another website”…

    To which website has the content been republished for everyone’s further review, please?

    Thank for your comment and your interest. The original article on Brietbart’s smear of Shirley Sherrod that appeared on Jul 19, can be found here and here.

    On July 20, the article was deleted and replaced with another article noting Shirley Sherrod’s resignation and the initial condemnation from the NAACP.

    The July 20 article can be found here.

    If the linked posts are accurate, FoxNews should be ashamed. of themselves.

    However, the fact that they may have covered it, but- according to your links- they didn’t call for her resignation, may present a problem in proving Fox’s culpability for the USDA’s potentially unwarranted actions to dismiss her, though.

    I didn’t see the part that Glen Beck was going to show it at 5 o’clock.

    Regardless, it was very informative. THANKS!
