Shirley Sherrod’s quick dismissal from the Obama administration may have had less to do with her comments on race before the NAACP than her long involvement in the aptly named Pigford case, a class action against the US government on behalf of black farmers alleging that the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) had discriminated against black farmers during the period from 1983 through 1997.
At the time the case was settled, it was estimated there would be in the area of 2,000 to 3,000 claims. As with most estimates involving government handouts that number was woefully short of the mark.
This is Andrew Breitbart’s sly way of exposing Sherrod and Obama. Do not miss Rosslyn Smith’s details in the American Thinker. There is much more to the Sherrod story and it looks a lot like fraud. Why is this not suprising. – DSMW
