This morning, we broke video of a USDA official, Shirley Sherrod, recounting for attendees at an NAACP awards dinner how she withheld help from a white farmer seeking the agency’s help in saving his farm.

Fox News is reporting that Ms. Sherrod has resigned. From Fox:

“There is zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA, and I strongly condemn any act of discrimination against any person,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a written statement. “We have been working hard through the past 18 months to reverse the checkered civil rights history at the department and take the issue of fairness and equality very seriously.

Sherrod explained in the video that, at the time, she assumed the state or national Department of Agriculture had referred the white farmer to her. In order to ensure that the farmer could report back that she was indeed helpful, she said she took him to see “one of his own” — a white lawyer.

“I figured that if I take him to one of them, that his own kind would take care of him,” she said.

The video clip was first posted by The clip is dated March 27 from an NAACP Freedom Fund banquet.

So, the USDA has issued a statement. We’re still waiting to hear from the NAACP.

Presumably, they will denounce the racism in the video as strongly as the Obama Administration has.

Its not good to throw accussations of racism when your organization lives in a glass house.  We will be awaiting the removal of Shirley Sherrod from her position but we won't hold our breath.
