She made those statements 24 years ago??
I had no idea the video was that old. I still don't get the Obama administrations' connection to this, but it keeps coming up in articles anyway. Is
this really legit or a means to smear Obama in the process of taking on the NAACP?
At first I was pretty upset over the racial tone of her statements and disregarded her as simply a bigot, but after watching the video a few more
times I realized a lot of the context was missing.
For example, it seemed she WAS admitting to racial bias in the case with the White farmer and that she turned him over to a White lawyer to help him
rather than adequately do so herself. Upset over the myriad problems Black farmers have always faced in America. However, later she seems to imply
that the farmer was still NOT helped by the White lawyer.
She then claims she learned that it isn't about "Black and White", but about "rich and poor".
Seems she was recounting a story where her own racial prejudices were shook to the foundation and came to the ultimate conclusion that there is Black,
there's White, and then there is "Them".
It looked to me that this was a cautionary tale regarding being blinded by bigotry when we are all on the same level in the eyes of the truly elite.
Her story of having been blinded by prejudice before seeing the reality of the situation is no different than those told by deceased Senator and
former KKK affiliated Robert Byrd. A man who also changed his approach to race dramatically.
I guess without the full recording we won't get the whole story.
I personally don't trust Brietbart. Especially after that stunt he pulled with Giles and O'Keefe via Hannity regarding ACORN. After watching the
full videos (they should still be up on the California Attorney Generals' website but be advised they are long), it was clear to many that this was a
severely edited hatchet job that was so misleading as to be almost entirely irrelevant. FOX ran a heavily edited sting without even checking the
People lost their jobs because of that phony-journalist stunt.
Like the woman who on FOX seemed to be trying to secure housing for underage prostitutes but in the full video was told that she was actually helping
Giles (claiming to be an abused prostitute escaping her pimp) find housing so she could escape from the life. Brietbarts back-step on the issue was
pretty weak too but at this point he can't claim to be unbiased when it comes to investigative journalism and leaked videos.
I think I need to see the full video before I go along with the Breitbart video.
Any Brietbart video, actually.
