I can sum it up for you in a few words:
Black good, white bad. Rinse and repeat.
I think I can type more words per minute than this woman can speak.
Black on the outside, red on the inside.
The NAACP association with the Communist Party of the USA is well documented.
Much of the information I will present is taken from a book called Biographical Dictionary of the Left which was written by a Francis Gannon and was published by Western Islands back in 1969. If you can still find this book somewhere, I would recommend it.
The NAACP emerged in 1909, supposedly to promote equality and rights among the races. Needless to say, it has done neither.
However, the formation of this group was urged by the leading radicals of that day, among whom were Jane Addams and government school educator John Dewey. Other radicals were among the first officials in the organization. Among these was Oswald Garrison Villard, grandson of the infamous abolitionist, William Lloyd Garrison.
The first president of the NAACP was, strangely enough, a white man, Moorfield Story, a lawyer from Boston. Black radical WEB DuBois, who later joined the Communist Party, was the organizations first director of publicity and research, as well as editor of the groups monthly publication The Osiris. This publication gave DuBois an excellent outlet from which to pour forth all manner of racial invective against whites, supposedly in the name of promoting equality.
According to the Biographical Dictionary of the Left, Long tenure in office has also been characteristic of the NAACPs presidentsall white men: Moorfield Story (1910-1915), Joel Springarn (1915-1940), Arthur Springarn (1940-1966), and since 1966, Kivie Kaplan. Since the Biographical Dictionary was published in 1969, obviously some things have changed. However, it is interesting to note how long the organization had white presidents, almost as if the radicals didnt trust the blacks to take the organization in the proper direction (to the left).
WEB DuBois, one black that did hold a prominent position, was no problem because he was already on the left. DuBois was known to have hailed the Russian Revolution of 1917 and he travelled to the Soviet Union in 1926 and 1936. He especially liked the racial attitudes of the Communists.
In 1922 the NAACP started to receive grants from the Garland Fund, a big source of funding of Communist Party projects. Officials of the Garland Fund included Communists William Z. Foster, Benjamin Gitlow, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, and Scott Nearing. Other prominent left-wing officials were Roger Baldwin, Sidney Hillman, and Harry F. Ward, the Red Dean of religion in America. The Garland Fund continued to pour money into the NAACP until around 1934. Even when the money stopped, the Communist connections continued.
In 1938, the NAACP was represented at the World Youth Congress, a Communist enterprise. In the 1940s the NAACP was affiliated with American Youth for a Free World, the American affiliate of the World Federation of Democratic Youth, a Communist clearing house.
A most literate apologist for the NAACP was the well-known Langston Hughes. Hughes was affiliated with Communist Party projects from the mid-1920s until he passed away in 1967. In fact, in 1962, Hughes wrote a book entitled Fight for Freedom: The Story of the NAACP. In this book he stated the following:
Attempts to label the NAACP subversive, Communist-influenced, or out and out Communist have continued for a long time. In light of the evidence available, can anyone with a brain honestly wonder why?
The organization has, from time to time, gone through the sanitized ritual of opposing Communism but this has been a self-serving action designed to keep the support of those that are astute enough to see communism as a problem.
In 1946, the NAACP helped the Communist Party in one of its major political projects, the establishment of the Progressive Citizens of Americathe basis for Henry Wallaces Communist-dominated Progressive Party in the 1948 presidential election.
In 1953 the Communist newspaper Daily Worker recommended that Communists and labor unions give every possible support to any and all campaigns conducted by the NAACP. One can only wonder if this strategy has changed in the intervening years.

Exactly! That is the bigger story: the audience fully supported her tactics and she was boasting about it—no regrets.
This woman identifies with EVERYONE based on their color.
You should hear her ramble.
‘My father was a farmer. He was black. Then this white guy, I forget his name, he came along and he drove a rental car because if you’re white you can afford a rental car... blah blah blah...’
Not exactly that but I’m not that far off.
BTTT! Good info.
Only white people get brick houses. If you’re black you get a house made out of blocks.
This is what she says.
THE WHITE WATCHES GLENN BECK?
What I can’t figure out about this matter is this: Sherrod wins a big settlement against the Agriculture Department, and then the Department hires her? Anyone hear of another defendant ever doing that? I mean, why would they want to?
Do you know any details on the settlement before her hire?
Maybe they didn’t want that out... conflict of interest.
Hopefully an accurate transcript will be available soon.
Sherrod who's fought for others rights felt she couldn't stand up to her bosses in Washington after they put her on administrative leave, then called for her resignation even though she feels she's done nothing wrong.
"I just didn't feel like I had what it took to fight them How could I fight the Department of Agriculture and the President."
She feels like no one's been willing to fight for her. "It hurts especially when the NAACP is doing it and Roland Martin is doing it. These are black people, they never asked me what happened, these are people who haven't been on the front line like I have for 45 years..."
There are some edits in this new file, but I think it is pretty clear that Obama threw her under the bus before he had all the facts.
The irony is that she was telling her audience to get into government service because they can’t fire you.
I think we just hit a bump named Sherrod.
Gitting awfully crowded under this bus, isn’t it?
Shirley Sherrod, Albany Office, FSC:
It makes you wonder sometimes why is it that it took Farmers Home Administration that long to, to send a notice. Why is it that the county supervisor didn’t send any kind of letter, you know, leading up to getting’ the delinquent notices in ‘87. So many strange things happen when you have only white people in charge of dealing with our people.
