"Shirley Sherrod is a racist "liar"?

*
You can run racism, but you can't hide. The field is very fast, and thanks to his Air R track shoes, he will run you down and catch you.

And now this wonderful op-ed in The American Spectator from Jeffrey Lord, a former hotshot in the reagan White House:

"It isn't true.

Shirley Sherrod's story in her now famous speech about the lynching of a relative is not true. The veracity and credibility of the onetime Agriculture Department bureaucrat at the center of the explosive controversy between the NAACP and conservative media activist Andrew Breitbart is now directly under challenge. By nine Justices of the United States Supreme Court. All of them dead.

But first, it's important to say this.

After Shirley Sherrod's firing I wrote a column congratulating Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack for removing her -- based on a viewing of the now infamous edited Breitbart clip. I was wrong. I should have waited to see the entire video or read the transcript before writing a word. So my apologies to Ms. Sherrod.

The problem?

I have now done exactly what I should have done originally. So there's no mistake about "selective editing" of videos or speech transcripts, here is a link to the website of the NAACP, where they have made a point of posting the full video of Shirley Sherrod's speech. I have seen the entire speech as supplied by the NAACP. The now-famous speech runs just over 40 minutes. If you don't have the time, here is a link to the printed transcript of her speech supplied by a site called American Rhetoric Online Speech Bank. The transcript is taken in full from the video version of her speech, which American rhetoric also supplies. I have read the transcript as well.

Let's get to this.

In her speech, Ms. Sherrod says this:

I should tell you a little about Baker County. In case you don't know where it is, it's located less than 20 miles southwest of Albany. Now, there were two sheriffs from Baker County that -- whose names you probably never heard but I know in the case of one, the thing he did many, many years ago still affect us today. And that sheriff was Claude Screws. Claude Screws lynched a black man. And this was at the beginning of the 40s. And the strange thing back then was an all-white federal jury convicted him not of murder but of depriving Bobby Hall -- and I should say that Bobby Hall was a relative -- depriving him of his civil rights.

Plain as day, Ms. Sherrod says that Bobby Hall, a Sherrod relative, was lynched. As she puts it, describing the actions of the 1940s-era Sheriff Claude Screws: "Claude Screws lynched a black man."

This is not true. It did not happen. How do we know this?

The case, Screws vs. the U.S. Government, as she accurately says in the next two paragraphs, made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Which, with the agreement of all nine Justices of the day -- which is to say May 7, 1945 -- stated the facts of the killing of Bobby Hall this way:

The arrest was made late at night at Hall's home on a warrant charging Hall with theft of a tire. Hall, a young negro about thirty years of age, was handcuffed and taken by car to the courthouse. As Hall alighted from the car at the courthouse square, the three petitioners began beating him with their fists and with a solid-bar blackjack about eight inches long and weighing two pounds. They claimed Hall had reached for a gun and had used insulting language as he alighted from the car. But after Hall, still handcuffed, had been knocked to the ground, they continued to beat him from fifteen to thirty minutes until he was unconscious. Hall was then dragged feet first through the courthouse yard into the jail and thrown upon the floor, dying. An ambulance was called, and Hall was removed to a hospital, where he died within the hour and without regaining consciousness. There was evidence that Screws held a grudge against Hall, and had threatened to "get" him.

The very first paragraph of the Supreme Court decision states:

1. Upon review of a judgment affirming the conviction, for violation of § 20 of the Criminal Code and conspiracy thereunto, of local law enforcement officers who arrested a negro citizen for a state offense and wrongfully beat him to death, the judgment is reversed with directions for a new trial.....

The next time Ms. Sherrod visits Washington, she can take a trip up to Capitol Hill.

First, she can visit the Supreme Court of the United States, and ponder the connection between progressivism and racism. Take a look inside the ornate chamber where on May 7, 1945, Justice Hugo Black, a lifetime member of the Ku Klux Klan honored with a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court, an honor made possible because he used his racism to support the New Deal, voted to overturn the conviction of Sheriff Claude Screws for beating Bobby Hall to death.

Then a short stroll adown the street and she can visit another of Capitol Hill's enduring monuments: The Richard B. Russell United States Senate Office Building. As she strolls down its old marble corridors, surrounded by the offices of powerful United States Senators and their staffs, she perhaps can take the time to reflect once again on the night her father was murdered. And that the very building in which she walks is named in honor of the progressive/racist Democrat who was without doubt responsible for helping lots of Georgia farmers on a scale even Sherrod might not be able to imagine. But to do that he had to help create and nurture the atmosphere that made her father's death -- and that of Bobby Hall -- possible.

Perhaps, just perhaps, she'll even wonder if she understands just how much her own career and the things she said in that famous speech are sounding to some ears ever-so-slightly just like those of Justice Black and Senator Russell. Down the scale a bit -- a bureaucrat is not the same as a Senator or a Justice -- but still finding herself on the same scale nonetheless. A little concern for the poor folks here, a few government farm dollars and jobs over there and -- oh yes- a little dropping of the race card here and there so those jobs and dollars keep flowing.

Maybe she can even tell us why she stood up in front of the NAACP and said something that was completely, totally, untrue..."
[Article] h/t to Lynne for this story.

Scary stuff! And now a prominent conservative is calling Ms. Sherrod a liar. That nigger was not lynched, he was beaten to death. I can say a lot of things here, but I won't. The writing speaks for itself.

Finally, I have been talking about his O ness and the people he surrounds himself with for months. Just a brotha looking out for another brotha. But he won't listen to me. Now, a white woman (someone much more prominent and famous than the kid) is telling him the same thing. Maybe he will listen to her. h/t to Val for this story.

Is this yet another attempt to rewrite history as it being the Democratic party, then and now, as being the same?

Anonymous said...

What? What diffrence does it make if he was beaten to death vs "lynched" clearly you have an agenda and Im unclear as what it actually is, Do you know?

Gregory said...

This is the kind of distinction that only a conservative could love. Claude Screws allowed Bobby Hall to be beaten to death because he was insulting to a couple of crackers. Good thing he didn't whistle at a white woman or they would have done him proper, with a rope and everything.

Jeffrey Lord is torturing logic like it was locked up in Gitmo. This is mind bogglingly asinine, but I'm sure that it will resonate with the goobers.

Val said...

Dowd nailed it in her op-ed, Mr. Field. Now that we have a Black President in the White House one would have thought that we could finally reap some of the political benefits that supporters normally do when their candidate wins. No such luck. Black Americans are persona non grata with the Obama Administration.

field negro said...

Anon. 10:31 pm, were those comments meant for me or for the actual author of the article? Just wondering.

Cocoa_Goddess said...

You know, it's really sad that in order to TRY to save face people would actually try to demean a person's murder by saying it wasn't really lynching, it was just a fatal beating. Lawd have mercy! Why won't they take a page from Shepherd Smith and man up and admit they messed up? I know there are some sensible conservatives out there somewhere. Why won't they speak up?

Dowd hit the nail on the head with that article.

maria said...

i have never liked dowd, i think she's smug, elitist and often just nasty. however. sometimes i agree with her, as now.

but...she's wrong to say obama is doing nothing for gays, to lump that in there:

The president appears completely comfortable in his own skin, but it seems he feels that he and Michelle are such a huge change for the nation to absorb that he can be overly cautious about pushing for other societal changes for blacks and gays.

also, did the USDA really need a black person to say sherrod shouldn't be judged until the whole tape was viewed? weren't black people in the NAACP who said GET HER?

seems common sense, in any hue, was lacking.

hennasplace said...

Isn't the relative still just as dead? Of course lynching may sound worse to the listener, but for the victim it does not matter. Say for the sake of argument that Sherrod lied, was she brought forth a point in her story?

I tell people this all the time, all politics is local and it really the local politicians who have an affect on our day to day lives. It is very important who is running your state and city government, look at the situation in Bell, Ca where the council person was making $800,000 a year on the taxpayers' dime while the city is suffering from high unemployment and 25% of the resident live below the poverty line. Voting in a general election is fine, but the President can only do so much, and Congress has the ability to write laws. Yet most people do not write our Congresspeople and Senators. In fact, Congress can block some of the President's initiatives. The reality of the politics is who gets what, and those who are getting what they want is not the American people, but people in position of power and wealth. If African Americans are going to a part, then we need to focus on economic power and that's a missing component from the civil rights movement. We also need to put pressure on the President as well. We vote and go home, and expect to change because somehow we did our part. We have to participate in the political process, and the fact of the matter one person can do it all. I have a friend who did not believe Obama would win the election, now you cannot say anything negative about him. She was at church praying for him, now ask her if knows the political issues at present, the answer would be no. I didn't think the President should have signed the bill to cut Acorn's funding, but it was our job to stand up and voice our opposition. It amazes me that when there was a beef recall in South Korea, more than 100,000 people protested. However, allowing body scanners at airports without even asking the question about its safety due to the radiation, not a word uttered, or the fact that Chertoff does consultant work for the company that manufactures the body scanner. I voted for Obama because he is skillful politician who could do the job. Voting for him thinking that he is the saver of black people, that was not happening and it's not realistic. Besides, jobs, healthcare, taxes, etc. are universal concerns. I am glad that I am not in his shoes because he is damned either way, a catch-22. Being the first of anything is the hardest.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Well, that's the last straw for me. Sherrod did not lie! Lynching is not confined to hanging only.

lynch (lĭnch)
tr.v. lynched, lynch·ing, lynch·es

To execute without due process of law, especially to hang, as by a mob.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Bobby Hall was executed without due process of law and according to the definition of lynch, he was lynched. Jeffrey needs to take a class in vocabulary. Also, he needs to take a class in not being messy.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

BTW, I sure am not gonna agree with anything Dowd has to say regarding the President because I haven't forgot about that little snarky put down piece she wrote about him when he won the elections. She wasn't exactly in support of him then and her little sly BS article today does not fly with me or pass the smell test because she is just coming from another angle with her BS. Bout to make me cuss.

Cocoa_Goddess said...

Granny, he also needs to take a class in having class.

La♥audiobooks said...

I was holding my breath, I thought they were going to say he wasn't lynched because he fell on a tree or something (can't put that past them).

And because we can always trust everything 'they' say to be historical fact, Sherrod now knows her loved one was beaten to death instead of lynched, she should be able to sleep much better now and stop being so damn hurt. (sarcasm now off)

hennasplace said...

Granny:

I am glad Field posted the op-ed article, and needed to find another resource. I went to Media Matters and it wrote about Lord's article. Lynching is defined as an extra-judicial killing by a mob that can be as few as two people, and the means could be beating, shooting, burning, or hanging. She did not lie about the account, he was lynch as three people were involved with his murder. It does not make a different how he was murder, the fact is Hall was killed in a lynching. That is like asking Clinton did he have sexual intercourse and he answered no, but the person should asked did he participate in an act of a sexual nature. Wording can change a meaning.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Cocoa, yup, and he also needs to be called out for trying to be so smart. His ulterior motive was wrong. In his attempt to embarrass and make Sherrod, a good woman, look bad and to help save Andrew he helped to fan the flames of racism.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Jeffrey was in such a big rush to sully Sherrod's reputation that like the word says, when you dig one ditch, dig two applies to him.

Well said...

Black Americans are persona non grata with the Obama Administration.


Also add the working class, the poor, and the middle class to that list. What's the point of the two parties arguing over who is more-or less-this-and that-when both share the dubious honor of failing the test of leadership at this crucial moment. We are truly on a ship with no captain.

Kia said...

Have you noticed the media left this story alone? Sherrod father and relative was murdered at the hands of whites and to this day never stood trial! Think of the hundreds of untold stories. Bloodstain washed through the generations; a sin against man and God.

It is heartbreaking- but we need to talk about the people, including babies, that was beaten to death, raped, lynched and even burned to death while they slept because of their skin color. Find family members and bring stories like this to life so wounds can begin to heal. Apparently, the KKK head office was/is in Washington which explains a lot.
I cried as I watched her story.

I am happy Sherrod story came to life because the younger generation should know.
May God continue to bless Ms Sherrod and her family. Bring them peace and the will to endure all evil.

LACoincidental said...

So in the Bizarro universe of Jeffrey Lord, middle Black women make up stories about their father being lynched? Field, keep on chasing our man racism, I think his shoe laces were untied on this one.

As for everything thinking that Obama was going to usher in a new age for Black folks -- uhm no. I knew it wasn't going to happen. (Certain) white folks aren't going to go out without a fight.

And hennaplace made a great point -- Obama is a big piece to progressive change, but jut a piece. The last time I checked, there are 435 other cats who have been all but sitting on their thumbs for years. When was the last time you wrote or met your congressman or Senators? Or rallied for, well, anything?

The Tea Party (sadly) could teach progressive whites and we field negroes a thing or two about getting Congress to movie their asses. There are two ways to get our political 'leaders' to respond, pay them off (lobbyists and their corporate puppet masters), throw them out or scare the shit out of them (the Tea Party).

Henna's place said:

But he wasn't killed by a mob, he was killed by police officers. Following that logic, people like Oscar Grant, Amadou Diallo, and those citizens killed by the New Orleans cops were victims of lynchings. Meaning that lynching is alive and well in 21st century America, north and south.

Shady_Grady said...

Dowd has a Pulitzer despite many of her columns being extended rants about how she can't get easily laid because men are too intimidated by her awesomeness.

It's a strange world.

Anyway, even a broken clock is right twice a day so she might be onto something but for the fact that it's not so much acting "white" as it is that Obama needs to do a better job defining his agenda, communicating his successes and not shirking from confrontation with those who wish to see him fail.

I'm curious to see how this president will address the Black community during his 2012 campaign.
He cant make the responsibility speech. He cannot present himself as a beacon of hope or change. He may want to have Michelle do all the talking

Jamdown said...

And the Republican party wonders why Blacks vote Democrat?

I will never vote Republican -- they've made it plain how they feel about Black people. They can continue to seek out and get the White racist vote.

maria said...

shady--believe it or not, a fari number of people have pulitzers who don't really deserve them. sometimes they just get them for their body of work over time. dowd won hers in 1999 for columns on clinton and lewinsky. she also won in a category (commentary) that doesn't have as many entrants as say general news or investigative writing.

i remember hearing humorist dave barry (who has one) once give a talk in which he said every newspaper had an old drooling guy in the corner....who has a pulitzer.

alicia banks said...

ditto fn!

racists and fools never listen to anyone.

racists will never see lynchings as blacks do.

elitist blackish fools like hobama will never see his financial lynchings of the poor as poor blacks do either.

it reminds me of how date rape will always be a sport until men and women define rape similarly.

all of the -isms are related.

and none will ever be resolved as long as they are evaded by evil racists/elitists who fret over such semantic nuances and denials...

This is why Mrs. Sherrod is hesitant to take that job offer from the USDA.

Her reputation as a 'racist' will never fade because the wingnuts will continue to follow her forever creating stories about her out of nothing and working for one of the most racist government agencies I am sure if Mrs. Sharrod were to accept the job offer the long knives would be out for her.

Mrs. Sherrod is from the old school, she understands how institutional racism works, shes had plenty experience in dealing with it. They would nitpick and always look for a tiny speck to magnify and pick with her at every turn. No one wants to work under those conditions. All of a sudden her job performance would be called into question and suddenly be deemed incompetent. They would even go so far as to plant BS on her to make her look bad. The things they would do to get back at her and her family would be endless. Even paying games with her paycheck would be part of their agenda, false complaints, you name it. Mrs. Sherrod is no fool!

Whether you know it or not, you've hit on something because modern day lynching is still in effect and so is Jim Crow. Back in the day, law enforcement was involved in all the lynchings that took place. Nothing has changed, except a new way of doing things. I've told y'all about one of my uncles that was lynched back in the day, but he wasn't the only relative of mine that was murdered by whites, there were a few more. I have the newspaper articles for two of them and their death certificates, but it was more than two. The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree and those that lynch blacks in this day and time are their seed. If you plant an orange seed, you don't get an apple, you still get another orange. Seeds produce their own kind. One day, hopefully, some of you people will recognize what the true hidden mysteries were and how the deep the bible really was, because it is more than just a few stories. It is life!

Its embarrassing when a Reagan Era stooge like Maureen Dowd has a better grasp on race relations than a Black guy in office. Yes, even a right winger like Dowd gets it -- Obama can't run from race.

There's a catch, if Obama were to do that -- bring in a bunch of smart Black people and women folk into his administration, the Tea Party right would really check his ass -- making the discussion solely about race.

Politics is a lot like Chess, you don't make one move without thinking how it can be countered or neutralized by your opponents.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

"Politics is a lot like Chess, you don't make one move without thinking how it can be countered or neutralized by your opponents."

Amen! You do have plan your stragedy wisely. That's why they threw that charge of racism ahead of time against the President to block him from moving this country forward in race relations. They don't want the race relations in this country to improve, it might wake the people up, end the unfair income gap, and their excessive profits at the expense of we the people.

Nevertheless, greed is what is bringing this country down and might wind up being what destroys this country too, but then it will be too late.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

BTW, LaConcidental:

All of the GOP, Teabaggers, and even Stormfront have a grasp on race relations. After all they invented racism; that's why they are able to play the twist, deception, lies, and other BS they do so well in order to keep race relations the way they are. Don't ever think that they don't know what the complaint about racism is because they know, they definitely know, they just pretend that they don't.

Thanks, both Field Negro and Val for the link to the Dowd article. Good read and I believe that she makes a very strong argument, one that Val has made for quite some time.

Interesting how reading her sentiments led me to recall the Dorothy Rabinowitz article where she spoke of Obama being an alien, all of which leads me to believe that Obama can and will never win as it pertains to issues of race.

It has to be accepted.

Interesting to see how his term(s) will play out.

I've often wondered about why Shabazz, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton keep going on Fox News myself. Maybe, it is in their contract with Fox. That would be the only reason that would make sense to me, because them appearing on Fox We Make It Up News makes the struggle harder for black folks.

This man is too dumb to comment about. I see another dummy up there actually tried to defend him.

RE the Prez: You colored folks still think you elected Obama president of the BSU, don't you? I am fed up with black folks whining about how he isn't dealing with "our" issues. Isn't health care "our" issue? Isn't unemployment "our" issue? Isn't housing "our" issue? He's done a lot to try to keep people in their homes, to make sure that unemployment payments are extended, and to insure that more people are eligible for health care insurance. Did you expect him to fix everything immediately? I don't agree with some of his policies and I've backed away from my prior support for the war in Afghanistan, but I don't expect him to march in solidarity with Oscar Grant demonstrators and I don't expect him to give a speech every week about how awful police brutality is. Did you think he would have Jay Z in for a forty to shoot the breeze about stuff in the 'hood? Or give the black power salute every time he boarded Air Force One? How old are you anyway, twelve?

For those of you who hate Obama so much, in 2012 vote for Palin or one of those other folks who would like to see you sent back to anywhere but here. It would be good for your asses to have something to really complain about. Too many black folks are the whiniest, cryingest, bunch of babies on the planet.

AB, please try and ignore her. It's not that hard. Just try it.

Yes Granny, half of Rev. Inc. was on the FAKE NEWS NETWORK again, Sunday.You might be right, maybe Rupert is paying them to go on.

Swiff, you know what's scary? I have zero patience for damn near everything. :)

Your lying on a dead men to bring attention to yourself is far more horrid than the sins you ascribed to anonymous. You are TRULY a vile, despicable being.

Well...the way I see it, is that we've got to put our heads together and come up with another stragedy. But most of all it is time to stick together and unite. All have something to bring to the table and more than one head is always better. It wouldn't hurt to go back and review some of the old cases and history because what we're dealing with isn't exactly new, it's the same old dung, just a different day, with new players, and new accessories added on to it to make it look new. However, there is nothing new about it. Ask any older person that has lived it, we can smell it, see it, and know it a mile away.

Speaking of racist lynchings here's one, that Field Negro and his followers will just love to chew on.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Anonymous 9:23:

That's sad, it really is, and my heart and prayers goes out to his family. Nevertheless, what you seem to assume about black folks is not true. We have compassion for people no matter what color their skin is when they are murdered in senseless killing, and it disturbs us. Life is too precious and no one has the right to take it away from any human being on this earth. I just wish that people like you would feel the same compassion when the victim is black or brown. If only mainstream media would value black and brown life as they do those who are white, that might would be the start of a better world and racial harmony. Too bad that some folks are too narrow-minded and selfish to understand that.

Anon. I am sorry for that poor man's family. I wonder if they killed him because he was white.

Field, "Just a brotha looking out for another brotha. But he won't listen to me."

Well, I think by now you must know that every brotha isn't a brotha?

Well said Granny at 9:53 pm

Field said "Anon. I am sorry for that poor man's family. I wonder if they killed him because he was white."

They would have done the same to you or me. It happens all the time to innocent law abiding black people walking from work or school minding their own business, but we don't here about it. If both the perp and the victim are black, they sometimes chalk it up to "an illegal deal gone bad" or some other black on black "the victim was somehow associated with the perp" scenario.

The anony failed to realize that tragic situations like that was about colorless opportunistic criminals targeting colorless victims.

mostly rabid:

my grandfather hated cowardly illiterate niggers like you because you made life harder for brave educated men like him...

and u still do the same for brave educated warriors with faces like me

I'm with you. I read the italicized excerpt and kept waiting to get to the part where the Sherrod tried to save the man, or something, but not, he was part of a group of men who beat Sherrod to death. Sounds like a lynching to me.

texasnative said...

Sorry, I wrote Sherrod when I meant "Sheriff" the first time and where I meant "Mr. Hall" the second time. (I need an editor!)
