Those aren’t exactly the words of a racial healer, someone committed to effecting a reconciliation between the races, someone like Shirley Sherrod who was recently denounced as a racist, fired by her boss, Tom Vilsack at the USDA, and lambasted by Barack Obama and the NAACP, who then received apologies and accolades from Tom Vilsack, Barack Obama, and the NAACP.
Not at all! Those weren’t the words of Ms. Sherrod expressing as they do an unresolved antipathy toward whitey and toward subservient blacks, those uncle toms defined by the Urban Dictionary as ”black people [who] try to convince other black people that working, education, living well, and setting a good example for their children is selling out.”
No way would Shirley Sherrod the healer use such racially-charged language.
Those are the words of her husband, Charles Sherrod, founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, better known as SNCC.
See this undated video of Mr. Sherrod which Moonbattery.com classifies as one of its “Profiles in Racism:” http://tiny.cc/e8zsw
Then, again, she too was a member of SNCC back in the 1960′s when it was a major player in the Civil Rights movement. Both Shirley and hubby Chuckie continued their membership in SNCC even after black supremacist Stokely Carmichael, later Kwame Ture, took over the reins and converted SNCC into a militant, black power gang along with fellow black racist, H. Rap Brown.
At that point, 1966, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee may still have been a committee that coordinated under Carmichael/Ture/Brown but any connection to students became merely coincidental and “nonviolent” no longer applied.
LBJ’s Defense Department said in 1967, ”SNCC can no longer be considered a civil rights group. It has become a racist organization with black supremacy ideals and an expressed hatred for whites. It employs violent and militant measures which may be defined as extreme when compared with those of more moderate groups:” http://tiny.cc/gnznn
Yet Mr. Charles and Mrs. Shirley Sherrod hung in as members, even after Carmichael/Ture/Brown expelled all white staff and volunteers from SNCC.
Alleging guilt by association is not considered cricket, not playing fair. Also not playing fair is canonizing a black activist like Shirley Sherrod. Van Helsing on Moonbattery suggests she has become Rosa Parks II in the MSM.
Shirley is neither a saint nor a Parks, unless, that is, blacks today are so in need of a saint or so desperate for another false heroine that they will pick a possible committed racist to fill those roles. If that’s the case, if that’s all they got, they should go for it!
