Your Government, Working For You

Sherrod, the video informs, is responsible for distributing $1.2 billion in federal grants to Georgia Agriculture.

Faced with a white farmer whose farm was in Chapter 12, she decided she wouldn't do "the full force" of what she could do to help him, because she was concerned about black folks losing their farms. She admits here she did "enough" so that if he spoke to others in the Department of Agriculture, he would have to admit she'd done something. But that's it.

She took him to one of "his own," a white lawyer, regarding Chapter 12. Apparently that federal money was personally earmarked by Sherrod for the exclusive use of black farmers.
