oh now THAT is interesting. and i'd be looking askance at breitbart now for taking part in this incident in that manner.. she was removed because she was NO LONGER RACIST. whatdya wanna bet? they think she's an uncle tom! i thought the whole uncle tom thing disappeared a few decades ago.
i think we all better be alot more vigilant in this day and age, to be sure we aren't being played like fiddles.
there's another agenda and it works on the premise of prejudice? you can't play if you aren't a bigot, in other words.

I've seen the "white farmer" referenced in this story on CNN saying that Mrs. Sherrod helped them save their farm and couldn't have done a better job.
I didn't give him the full force of what I could do.
Mrs. Sherrod was evidently wronged by Brietbart in releasing a part of a story without context, by the NAACP by how quickly they threw her under the bus, and by the government she worked for (possibly as far up as the whitehouse).
So I took him to a white lawyer. ... I figured if I would take him to one of them, his own kind would take care of him.
Sherrod "kept us out of bankruptcy," said Eloise Spooner, 82. She and her husband Roger Sooner, who own a farm in Iron City, located in southwest Georgia, approached Sherrod in 1986 -- when she worked with the Georgia field office for the Federation of Southern Cooperative/Land Assistance Fund -- seeking assistance.
