Sherrod Says Her Father Was Killed By A White Farmer

In one of her interviews with CNN today, Shirley Sherrod said that 45 years ago, her father was killed by a white farmer.“There were witnesses, and the grand jury refused to indict him,” Sherrod said, adding that she believed it was racially motivated.

“What I had to do was turn that into a positive and I did that by devoting my life to working for change. I made a commitment on the night my father died that I would not leave the South and I would stay here and work to make a difference,” she said.

Sherrod was forced to resign from the USDA after Big Government posted a video of Sherrod recounting a time in 1986 when she considered not helping a farmer because he was white.
