When Andrew Breitbart posted video of Ms. Sherrod speaking to a local
chapter of the NAACP confessing to a sympathetic audience she did not want to help a white farmer save his land, reaction from the White House via Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack was swift and decisive—she was forced out. But then more of the video came to light and it showed Ms. Sherrod to be speaking about an epiphany that it wasn’t about race it was about class and the “haves versus the have nots”—just shy of violating the Hatch Act which restricts federal employees from engaging in political activity while acting in their official capacity.

Upon learning this revelation, Vilsack offered to reinstate Sherrod and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said of the quick-draw firing of Ms. Sherrod:
"Members of this administration, members of the media, members of different political factions on both sides of this have all made determinations and judgments without a full set of facts. I think that is wholly and completely accurate. I think, without a doubt, Ms. Sherrod is owed an apology."
My beef is with what has not been dealt with or analyzed. And that is the Obama administration seems to have a penchant for racially biased socialists. If you listen to Sherrod’s remarks in their entirety, she clearly sees
through the prism of race and prescribes redistribution as the solution. America
