Shirley Sherrod Wrongfully Accused Of Racism


Shirley Sherrod, a senior level executive who worked for the US Department of Agriculture resigned Monday after edited video clips appeared on the internet where she is seen making racist comments in regards to a white farmer.

In a turn of events, following the full length video of her speech, the NAACP retracted statements condemning Sherrod and now says she had been treated unfairly.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack released his own statement Wednesday morning reconsidering his decision to ask Sherrod for her resignation.

“I am of course willing and will conduct a thorough review and consider additional facts to ensure to the American people we are providing services in a fair and equitable manner,” Vilsack said.

Sherrod however isn’t so sure she wants her job back. In an interview with NBC’s TODAY morning show she states,
“I am just not sure how I would be treated there,” she said, adding that she couldn’t get coworkers to listen to her side of the story about a  a speech she made in March, edited clips of which were recently shown on a conservative website.
Sherrod says  her comments were part of a larger story about learning from her mistakes and racial reconciliation. They were not racist, she said, and were taken out of context.
