Get­ting clued in

Re: July 25 Al­berta Phillips col­umn “Shirley Sher­rod showed she could rise above big­otry, but can we?”

I have al­ways en­joyed her col­umns and par­tic­u­larly liked this one.

Like ev­ery­one, when I saw the first Shirley Sher­rod clips, I was dis­ap­pointed. How­ever, com­mon sense tells you there must be more to the story. Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion gave a fuller ac­count.

It is so hurt­ful when peo­ple like An­drew Bre­it­bart twist what is a pos­i­tive thing into a neg­a­tive one.

Thanks so much for clue­ing peo­ple in to the call-and-re­sponse part of black cul­ture.
