Even the NAACP sees that no matter what race you are....racism is racism regardless of your color. To bad a group like the New Black Panthers are masquerading as the original Black Panthers. Big difference between the two.

However, to see what this woman is being put through today by the media, is just unthinkable. For her to be raked over the coals the way she has been today, for comments made 24 years ago, is unfair in my estimation.

She is currently trying to blame everyone else (including the Obama administration) for "taking her remarks out of context".
I watched the video, and heard exactly what she said and how she said it, and she clearly stated that because the white farmer was talking down to her, added to her thoughts about poor black farmers, it caused her to do less than she could to help this guy save his farm, i.e. she just plain doesn't like white people.
I have seen a lot more anti-white racism over the last 10 years than anti-black racism. The fact that 60% of whites voted for a black presidential candidate in preference to a white one pretty much nailed the coffin lid shut on that one. But racism flourishes when it is not stamped out, and I'm afraid that black racism has been, and is being allowed, to grow unabated, just watch the routine of any black stand up comic if you don't believe me.
Ironically, it is actually one of the few genuine national conspiracies alive today.

But, with respect the video was initially taken out of context as she begins to explain that poverty is the real issue. People change and say a lot they might regret in 20+ years.
