People In Glass Houses

The NAACP recently passed a resolution condemning racism in the Tea Party. They called on Tea Party leaders to "repudiate those in their ranks who use racist language in their signs and speeches."

Perhaps the NAACP would be wise to remove the log from their own eye before mentioning the speck in another's eye.

On Monday, Breitbart posted a video of a speech by Shirley Sherrod, USDA Rural Development Georgia State Director, delivered at the NAACP's 20th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet. The video shows Sherrod speaking of racial considerations being a factor for how much help she would give. It's an eye opener. This, along with the refusal to prosecute the New Black Panther Party and the of Jeremiah Wright, Henry Louis Gates and others is indicative of real racism rearing its ugly head. For a president who promised to help the nation to put all this behind us, it just seems like another failure in a long and growing list.
