There you go again...claiming the government is stonewalling when nothing could be further from the truth.

Even Fox News Senior Vice President of News, Michael Clemente, admits they made a mistake by running the story about the existence of the video, at 5:58 p.m. on Monday, an hour before the Agriculture Department announced Sherrod’s resignation. "There was a breakdown in the system, and it is being addressed," he said. "But it must say something about the power of Fox, that a week after she resigned, we're still talking about this."

Who's in charge of these cities, school districts, labor unions? Who makes endless promises of "change" and opportunity? When generation after generation sees nothing changing, who's to blame? The party making the promises, or the people who keep believing and waiting?
If you had the power to bestow instant "equality", how would you do it? Let's see what you really think would change the dynamic.
It doesn' matter who is in charge of the schools or the cities. What matters is the jobs are no longer there & the school are below par.

First you call black people lazy people who don't want to work. Now I am assuming you are blaming Democrats?? Or the evil unions. Ty[ical pathetic right whining thinking - blame someone else. Republicans in PA slashed education spending for schools.

How many generations have passed since 1964?

I see you are still flailing, trying to justify your racist comments.

"The USDA and Department of Justice publicly released a joint statement announcing the $1.25 billion settlement in 2010.

On Nov. 19, 2010, the Senate by unanimous consent passed the Claims Resolution Act of 2010 — which provided $1.15 billion in addition to the $100 million already appropriated. The House passed the bill 256-152 on Nov. 20, 2010. It was signed by Obama. The court has not yet approved the settlement, and no awards have been paid to any Pigford II claimants, said Justice spokeswoman Jessica Smith."

Q: Did then-Sen. Barack Obama get a law "passed in dead silence" that allowed black farmers to file "unlawful" discrimination claims against the USDA totaling $1.25 billion?

A: No. Obama supported the 2008 bill, but did not sponsor it or vote on it. It was not "passed in dead silence"; there were six floor votes. All claims are pending judicial review and approval.

It’s true that Obama played a prominent role in funding Pigford II. His administration agreed to settle the claims that were now allowed to proceed as a result of the 2008 farm bill.

Good grief! Sherrod has to prove she was somehow damaged by the video.
You were claiming this just a few posts back and now it is nada. You have no clue what your arguing about.
You have a reading comprehension problem. What I posted was, "Sherrod's resignation or firing has no bearing on the case OTHER THAN TO SHOW THAT SHE WAS NEGITIVELY AFFECTED BY BREITBART'S ACTIONS." I did not say it is "nada". Go back to your scrapbooking. That's about your level of thought.

The issue was the scam that Pigford was...Got that!
"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."
No. The subject was Sherrod and Breitbart's LAME attempt to tie Sherrod to the Pigford case to save face.

You are the one that butted into the conversation. Perhaps you should just butt out. The remark I made was to GALT. Someone who REPEATEDLY accuses people of being anti-Semitic and blindly defends anything one who is remotely related to israel. If Hitler were a Jew, Galt would defend him. That was the point I was making and you turned it into something entirely different. Go back to your sewing.

Finally, the e-mail makes two erroneous claims about Shirley Sherrod, a former USDA official who was fired for remarks she made about race that turned out to be misrepresented by a conservative blogger.(Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and the White House later apologized to Sherrod.)

The e-mail states that the “woman responsible for spearheading the case was an obscure USDA official,” referring to Sherrod. But she was not a USDA official when Congress passed the 2008 farm bill, which allowed black farmers to file late claims and have their cases heard on the merits. She was the USDA’s Georgia state director of rural development for only one year, from July 2009 until July 2010.

It’s true that Sherrod, who is black and a former farmer, was active in the Pigford case prior to working at the USDA. She, along with others at the Rural Development Leadership Network, helped organize black farmers to file claims in the original Pigford suit. But she was fighting the USDA from outside the agency, not influencing it from within. She told CNN:“I was deeply involved in all of that work and in the settlement, and in helping farmers to file their claims. So I was having to fight USDA just for the services, for the loans for farmers, for some of the programs that should have been automatic, that others were getting.”

The e-mail also erroneously states that Sherrod’s “family received the highest single payout (approximately $13 million) from that action.” The $13 million — which the Rural Development Leadership Network called the "largest award so far" in 2009 — did not go to her “family.” Rather, the money was awarded to New Communities, a farming collective founded in 1969 in rural Georgia by Sherrod and her husband, Charles. At its height, New Communities was 5,700 acres — the largest tract of black-owned land in the country — and had about a dozen families living on and working the land full time before it went out of business in 1985, according to a 2001 article by the Associated Press. In addition to their share of the New Communities settlement, Sherrod and her husband were awarded $150,000 each for pain and suffering.

This is a case of conspiracy theorists twisting the facts to build a false narrative about Obama and Sherrod.

It is unsettling to see this Nazi movement occurring again amongst the slow and/or intellectually lazy crowd in the Dem Party.
"Why It Is Essential for Jews to Speak Out as Jews, on Israel"

"But the sight of us doing the unthinkable has many benefits: There are a few Jews who are happy and relieved to see us because it opens the door for them. They have felt uneasy about Israeli policies for a long time, and seeing us seems to give them more courage to speak their minds. There are also some gentiles who are happy to see us because they have been afraid for a long time of being called anti&#8209;Semites if they criticize Israel." Jewish activist Dorothy Zellner
