The ongoing battle between the Tea Party Express & the NAACP has claimed its first victim in the firing of Shirley Sherrod. This is the first time in US History & News that I can remember the firing of any African-American man or woman dominating US News for more than 24 hours. This story has remained the top news story in cities across America because of the unbelievable level of injustice defining this situation. Shirley Sherrod was the casualty that resulted from both the NAACP and the White House shifting into panic mode in anticipation of the Tea Party having a “one-up” on them on the Glenn Beck show on Monday Night. It does not appear that representatives of either the White House nor the NAACP thought for 5 minutes they should actually get a full copy of Sherrod’s speech before making their decision to denounce her.
