    Georgia USDA official resigns over racial preference admission

    The USDA's rural development director for Georgia was forced to step down after a video surfaced of her telling an NAACP audience she based a decision to withhold the full measure of help available to a struggling white farmer bacause of his race.

    "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," said Sherrod, who is black, in a video recorded at the banquet and released Monday by FoxNews.com.

    "I was struggling with the fact that so many black people had 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."

    The revelation of Sherrod's statements came a week after the NAACP issued a resolution calling the National Tea Party racists for comments made against Pres. Barack Obama and African American congressmen during the health care debate.

    Racism can work both ways, and it's wrong either way.

    But it doesn't make it right....if only people could see that so much progress would be possible if we all just contribute our resources together and build for a better future. Being selfish will never get you anywhere. The Ideology of "Community Cooperation" for a better tomorrow is something that Americans just dont understand.

    Hmmm...well apparently the farmer in question was exhibiting racism himself.
    They're both in the wrong, and she should should have taken the higher ground and refused to sink to his level and retaliate. Being the one with the power to help or hinder she decided to get even. Wrong. Her position requires that she be above that.

    Now we're waiting for twomack to change the question to make it look like we're agreeing to something else like he did last time. icon_rolleyes.gif
