The Georgia director of Rural Development "has resigned" due to a video of her stating her racist views, where she took her time trying to decided just how much she would do to help a white farmer to save his farm. She gave this speech to the NAACP in MARCH, but it took until it was made public for the NAACP to condemn her blatant racism.... Why did it take so long for the NAACP to recognize the racism here???

With regards to the video, I'd like to see the whole thing. According to an article I read this morning she states that the rest of the speech goes on to say she realized what she did was wrong, and that she went back to the farmer and worked with him for two years to save his farm and became friends with him and his wife. That seems strange if she really thought he was a racist (trying to be superior to her), but makes the video suspicious as it clearly cuts the story off half way.
