These are the people calling the Tea Party racists. From Fox News:
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 — video that now has forced the official to resign.
Shirley Sherrod, the department’s Georgia director of Rural Development, is shown in the clip, describing “the first time I was faced with having to help a white farmer save his farm.” Sherrod, who is black, claimed the farmer took a long time trying to show he was “superior” to her. The audience laughed as she described how she determined his fate.
“He had to come to me for help. What he didn’t know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him,” she said. “I was struggling with the fact that so many black people have lost their farmland and here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land — so I didn’t give him the full force of what I could do. I did enough.”
I demand the NAACP denounce the racist elements in their midst.
So much for the post-racial presidency. Post-christian, yes. Post-American, probably. Post-Western, beyond a doubt. But post-racial? Never. Race is here to stay.
Yes, the Department of Agriculture has forced her to resign, but has the NAACP dissavowed the racist elements in their midst? Did anybody in that NAACP crowd denounce her? On the contrary, they laughed, as if dehumanizing white people was just a big damn joke. Will the NAACP denounce any of these racists? Why, of course not.
I wish I could say this was only a “fringe” racist element in the NAACP, but methinks they are not. The real fringe are the few blacks who are outraged by it– the ones trying to escape the normative racism of the Leftist plantation.
Don’t you feel polluted even having to talk about this? I do. But this is the “conversation” about race they’ve imposed upon us and we have to tough it out. The MSM won’t report this (unless some new info comes out later which they feel debunks it, then it’ll be round the clock MSM headlines), so thank God for teh internets. Oh, and have you ever noticed how– unlike our thuggish accusers— we always HAVE THE TAPE? No $100,000 necessary.
