But when asked by CNN Chief National Correspondent John King what she would say to Breitbart, Sherrod did not dance around the question.
"I'd tell him he's a liar. He knew exactly what effect that would have on not only - he knew what effect that would have on the conservative, racist people he's dealing with. That's why I started getting the hate mail. And that's why I started getting the hate calls. He got the effect he was looking for," Sherrod said on John King, USA.

A racist AND a liar.
Shame on you shhherrrrrrrrrrrooooooooooood
Here is a quote from her, apparently in a sympathetic documentary about black farmers back in 2006:
Shirley Sherrod, Albany Office, FSC: “It makes you wonder sometimes why is it that it took Farmers Home Administration that long to, to send a notice. Why is it that the county supervisor didn’t send any kind of letter, you know, leading up to getting’ the delinquent notices in ‘87. So many strange things happen when you have only white people in charge of dealing with our people. “
Interesting how this quote doesn’t seem to be getting much attention, even here on FR (which is where I saw it first)
Yeah. She changed her tune a long time ago, right? 20 years ago? She saw how bad it was to be racist after she abdicated the responsibilities of her job, and realized it wasn’t about race, it was all about class.
Hm. “...our people...”
That was in 2006. Doesn’t sound RACIST to ME. Nope.
Here is the link to the quote (from a transcript) from a site called California Newsreel, and their motto is “Film and Video for Social Change since 1968”:
Sorry, Ms S...we are not taking your crap any more.
Whilst I do not agree with your firing, I do feel that you are a worthless Obama (I use this word in place of t*rd, since the worth of both is the same).
Go away, get an education, and get a real job .
Your job on govt was a quota gift. I know it. You know it.
Why not learn something useful - as in NOT public service.
This racist skank ball needs to take a flying leap.
Ah, put a sock in it Sherrod.
Actions and words have consequences.
Stop whining and DEAL with it.
When you subject white people to the very thing you don’t want black people subject to, your credibility is lost.
Check out her quote from a 1999 documentary entitled ‘Homecoming’:
Shirley Sherrod, Albany Office, FSC: It makes you wonder sometimes why is it that it took Farmers Home Administration that long to, to send a notice. Why is it that the county supervisor didn’t send any kind of letter, you know, leading up to getting’ the delinquent notices in ‘87. So many strange things happen when you have only white people in charge of dealing with our people.

Everything she sees, she sees through racial glasses.
She and her husband sued USDA for “discrimination” and got $300,000 tax dollars. Wonder how much she’ll take out of taxpayer paychecks for this new slight? It would be educational to find out how much this racist bureaucrat makes per year on her “job.”
Well CNN only has what, 10 viewers..maybe someone should have asked Sherrod what she meant about being around “His own kind”
Ah. It was a 1999 documentary that she was quoted in. Perhaps it took five years to make and get it aired, so maybe we are approaching the 20+ years ago where she stopped being a racist.
Have none of these people heard the story of the little boy who all the damn time cried wolf?
Sherrod is the gift that keeps on giving. Just watch, she is turning into the female Jeremiah Wright..and now Obama apologized to her..what is he gonna say when all this racist stuff out of her mouth comes out, is he gonna say “This is not the Shirley Sherrod I once knew”
I am thinking we need to move on and quit playing defense on this issue.
That is what the Obamaloons want to deflect attention from their miserable failures.
If coservatives are such horrible racists, what does that make the liberals who fired her?
What is she talking about? She is spouting not what she has seen or experienced but a fabricated scenario fashioned by her agenda.
He is busy consoling his exposed Journolist co-worker Toobin.
This woman is disgusting. She is a racist and a bigot. I will never fall for this “racist label”. People worry too much about being branded a racist. I could care less what they think of me. Do they pay my mortgage? NO. Therefore, I DON’T CARE. PERIOD.
Sherrod is an idiot, just like her idiot in chief, the One and only (thank God) Obamassiah!! We won dammit. Plug them holes!!
Why, it seems like just yesterday that Obama OFFed her head.
We're living in dangerous times, and we've placed power into the hands of the most dangerous people in the nation.
She is an idiot, a hard core leftist, an inept government bureaucrat, a bigot, and a race hustler. Just like Obama.
In her own words:
Well, working with him made me see that its really about those who have versus those who dont, you know. And they could be black; they could be white; they could be Hispanic. And it made me realize then that I needed to work to help poor people those who dont have access the way others have.
I want to just share something with you and I think it helps to it you know, when I learned this, Im like, Oh, my goodness. You know, back in the late 17th and 18th century, black there were black indentured servants and white indentured servants, and they all would work for the seven years and and get their freedom. And they didnt see any difference in each other nobody worried about skin color. They married each other. You know, these were poor whites and poor blacks in the same boat, except they were slaves, but they were both slaves and both had their opportunity to work out on the slavery.
But then they started looking at the injustices that they faced and started then trying you know, the people with money you know, they started the poor whites and poor blacks who were they you know, they married each other. They lived together. They were just like we would be. And they started looking at what was happening to them and decided we need to do something about it you know, about this. Well, the people with money, the elite, decided, hey, we need to do something here to divide them.
So thats when they made black people servants for life. Thats when they put laws in place forbidding them to marry each other. Thats when they created the racism that we know of today. They did it to keep us divided. And they it started working so well, they said, Gosh, looks like weve come up on something here that can last generations. And here we are over 400 years later, and its still working. What we have to do is get that out of our heads. There is no difference between us. The only difference is that the folks with money want to stay in power and whether its health care or whatever it is, theyll do what they need to do to keep that power, you know. Its always about money, yall.
You know, I havent seen such a mean-spirited people as Ive seen lately over this issue of health care. Some of the racism we thought was buried. Didnt it surface? Now, we endured eight years of the Bushs and we didnt do the stuff these Republicans are doing because you have a black President.
In the NAACP speech itself, she implies that people who are opposed to the recent health care ‘reform’ bill are racists.
Basically, if you run around calling people racist all the time (and Sherrod is certainly NOT the only one doing this) it’s going to come back to bite you in some way.
I don’t think she got the ‘teachable moment’ here.
Until the left stops running around calling everyone racist at every opportunity, this will not end.
Yeah but her lips are still moving. Come to think of it, I hope they move more and louder. Sherrod and Bam, the gifts that keep on giving! She just keeps proving Breibarts tape was right on.
Just another open-minded Affirmative Action Jackson
Now promote her to another government job with an even bigger salary
Maybe it's the brandy, but this just made me laugh in one of those kind of rolling, bubbling laughters that keeps on coming over and over... these people are so completely corrupt, there are no words to encompass the depth of their depravity.
Keep talking Sherrod, keep talking......
The country is a ticking time bomb. Scary times indeed....
What a Racist this woman is. All the other racists and race-baiters (including nobama) apologize to her????? nobama offered her a promotion. This IS Bizarro World.
I’m glad *I’ve* never been a white farmer.But this turd is a perfect fit for Hussein,that’s for sure.
Careful, Ms. Sherrod.....we can take those gloves right back off again. And believe me, our side knows how to shake those skeletons right out of your closet.
She committed a civil rights violation. She should be in prison.
Since conservatives have to prove they aren’t racists, shouldn’t liberals have to prove they aren’t child molesters?
Ms Sherrod you poor stupid cow. The party of the democrats fought the party of Lincoln in the civil war.The the party of the democrats you know the party that had the KKK as the terrorist wing who had the likes of Bull Connor and George Wallace uphold the Jim Crow laws, that party. While you accuse the party of Lincoln the republican party of racism....poor dumb cow.I hope you like it there with the Democrats!
Exactly as Sherrod knew the effects her words would have on her audience. If she wishes to continue to be the poor aggrieved she should probably just STFU.
She means CRACKUHS!
I cannot figure out how the recent health care "reform" can do anything other than harm poor folks and minorities.
Please - catch up -
They got the $300K for “pain and suffering”.
They ALSO got a share of $13MM as part of their suit.
THEN the poor Ms Shirley got this State Director job. It’s got pay around $200K (unsourced just opinion), plus bennies.
Every penny tax money.
This government is corrupt and an enemy of the citizens.
You should see what it was like at the FAA -
Ever try to hire a black aerospace engineer? There are some - but not the qty you need for a federal agency. They had 50 years of white males to try to displace/correct with racial quotas.
It was insane. Insane.
We also had a white guy of Italian descent. His parents lived in Ethiopia. He was born there and always claimed African-American; the only real AA in the department. Used to piss off all the black advocates and shut up all the weak-kneed managers.
We, as a country, had dealt with our prejudices, and triumphed over racism. Heck, we’d practically forgotten about it.
Then, Obama became President, and everything that we, as a country, had accomplished was destroyed.
He wiped out MARTIN LUTHER KING’s DREAM.
He is replacing it with LEX LUTHOR’S DREAM.
(Obama is the tall one)
She is as thin skined as zero.
