Is there a point when you figure payback has been achieved? Maybe there's a monetary equivalent you have in mind, some reparation that will unleash a pent-up contributory juggernaut? How long will you cower behind the "victim" shield, 50, 100, 200 more years?
So you evidently think that the past racism & legal segregation has nothing to do with those statistics?
Here you are jumping into the idea of payback & reparations like good little racist POS right whiner.
I am not taking about any such thing at all. I am saying that when you look at those statistics that there are factors such as the segregation & racism that were legal prior to 1964 and still exist today (Here is when you look on the mirror).
But you, you look at statistics & like Paul Ryan declare that the black culture is deficient and that black people don't want to work.
So we have a population living in the cities where the manufacturing & construction jobs left and where schools are failing. But, nooooooooooo,you say black people are lazy & don't want to work.

very few medical insurance plans ever included pediatric vision and dental care (as one example), traditionally covered by separate plans.....

Sherrod was not fired. Now, it could be said that she acted irresponsibly by resigning but that has nothing to do with this case other than proving her case against Breitbart. Breitbart set the stage with his lies. Everything that followed is his fault.
If she resigned, then she really doesn't have much a claim for retort especially after she refused to accept the job when re-offered.

Your hate of Breitbart is clouding your judgement

The American Conservative (TAC) is a bi-monthly journal of opinion published by the American Ideas Institute. It reflects traditional American conservatism that has argued vigorously against American interventionism, against a debt-based fiscal policy used to finance adventurism abroad and government growth at home, and against the intrusions on Americans’ private lives by state security apparatus. In general, TAC represents an anti-war and paleoconservative voice against the dominance of what it sees as a neoconservative strain on the Right.

more conservative than FOX News.
Yeah and my blog called "We Liberals" reflects the viewpoints of Liberals.

Oh for Pete's sake. Breitbart spent eight months trying to find a way to save face by using the Pigford settlement to smear Sherrod and get the attention off of himself. Only a die hard conspiracy loon would give any credit to Breitbart's insane accusation regarding the Pigford lawsuit.
The New York Times published a major story on the case and its legacy. It vindicated many of the conservative suspicions about the case. "The compensation effort sprang from a desire to redress what the government and a federal judge agreed was a painful legacy of bias against African-Americans by the Agriculture Department," Sharon LaFraniere wrote. "But an examination by The New York Times shows that it became a runaway train, driven by racial politics, pressure from influential members of Congress and law firms that stand to gain more than $130 million in fees. In the past five years, it has grown to encompass a second group of African-Americans as well as Hispanic, female and Native American farmers. In all, more than 90,000 people have filed claims. The total cost could top $4.4 billion."

The Times went on to report that:

Political appointees in the Obama Administration overruled career lawyers and agency officials at the Justice and Agriculture Departments, committing $1.33 billion to compensate "thousands of Hispanic and female farmers who had never claimed bias in court," even though the civil servants argued that there was no credible evidence of widespread discrimination.

The template for payouts Team Obama adopted was a magnet for fraud.

"From the start, the claims process prompted allegations of widespread fraud and criticism that its very design encouraged people to lie," but "those concerns were played down as the compensation effort grew."

"... Even now people who say they were unfairly denied loans can collect up to $50,000 with little documentation."

In a 2010 settlement with Native Americans, Justice Department lawyers "argued that the $760 million agreement far outstripped the potential cost of a defeat in court. Agriculture officials said not that many farmers would file claims. That prediction proved prophetic. Only $300 million in claims were filed, leaving nearly $400 million in the control of plaintiffs' lawyers to be distributed among a handful of nonprofit organizations serving Native American farmers. Two and a half years later, the groups have yet to be chosen. It is unclear how many even exist."

An internal Agriculture Department memo from 2010 stated that the payouts to women and Hispanics would be "a way to neutralize the argument that the government favors black farmers over Hispanic, Native American or women farmers."

15 Agriculture Department employees who reviewed or responded to claims "said the loose conditions for payment had opened the floodgates to fraud."

Said Sandy Grammer, a former Agriculture Department program analyst who reviewed claims for three years: "Basically, it was a rip-off of the American taxpayers."

One Arkansas prosecutor rejected a test case against someone who admitted to lying on his claim form, saying that singling him out could raise the question of selective prosecution: "The defendant could go to the jury and say:'Everybody else did this. Why am I standing here?'"

"In one ZIP code in Columbus, Ohio, nearly everyone in two adjoining apartment buildings had filed."
