Andrew Breitbart took a lot of criticism for releasing that clip of Shirley Sherrod’s speech at the NAACP conference, but I feel it was undeserved. While the full context wasn’t there, I believe, having examined much of the speech, that you could judge this woman by what we originally saw. Don’t believe me? The NAACP has the entire video on their site, give it a watch. While I could discuss this further, go into how I feel about all this talk about racism, I have a better idea. Here’s Alfonzo Rachel’s rant on this very subject. Enjoy!
If you enjoyed this video, gives his Youtube channel a look. Now for those questioning whether or not ‘Zo is being honest about Sherrod’s following comments, give these other clips a watch.
So Breitbard wants to bring back slavery? I would really like to know in what context these remarks are acceptable… Disgraceful.
UPDATE: Before anyone comments here about Shirley Sherrod being a “victim”, why not learn more about this woman’s past.
One has to wonder whether she will end up in Charlie Rangel’s position if her involvement in the Pigford case ever comes to light. The American Thinker’s Rosslyn Smith has more on this and it is a definitely MUST READ!
Maybe Barack Obama should have left her “under the bus.” Mind-boggling…
UPDATE: CNN’s Don Lemon makes the mistake of letting Bev Smith say something downright nonsensical. Instead of letting these statements go unchallenged, Lemon should have at least asked Smith to clarify what she said because it does sound fairly offensive. I am simply speechless as it is about one of the mind-boggling things I have ever heard.
So Shirley Sherrod was “chosen” to remind us of what is going on? Excuse me? Anthony Hill was murdered by a white co-worker, and while that definitely does sound like a hate crime, I don’t see how it relates to what happened to Sherrod. Is Smith saying that this was also a hate crime? Is she saying that this kind of racism is still a serious issue for the black community? Last time I checked, Barack Obama is President, and for that to happen, a huge percentage of white Americans had to vote for him (43 percent according to CNN exit polls). This is also assuming that the white Americans that didn’t vote for Obama were doing so because he was black. Once again, this is mind-boggling.
Lemon also makes the mistake of bringing Warren Ballentine, well known bigot who called Juan Williams and “porch monkey”, on to discuss this incident. Surely Lemon didn’t expect Ballentine to say something that wasn’t downright hateful…
How was Reverend Jeremiah Wright taken out of context? I would like to know the context in which “GOD DAMN AMERICA,” “THE US OF KKK A” and “THE GOVERNMENT LIED ABOUT INVENTING THE HIV VIRUS” aren’t downright offensive. It isn’t like these comments aren’t well documented Ballentine, Reverend Wright’s statements on whites and America are very well known by now.
Explain those comments Ballentine, tell us about the “context” of those hateful statements. An argument can be made about Sherrod’s original comments being taken out of context, but not these ones. Pathetic…
