NAACP Posts Entire Shirley Sherrod Video

The NAACP earlier Tuesday evening posted the full 43-minute long video for embattled ex-USDA official Shirley Sherrod's March 2010 speech.

The civil-rights organization based an earlier denunciation of racially tinged comments by the African-American Sherrod on an edited version of the video that was posted by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart on his biggovernment.com and also shown on Fox News.

But after obtaining and reviewing the entire speech, the NAACP said it was mistaken, that Sherrod was making a point about overcoming her own prejudices in her 1986 dealings with the white farmer.

For the sake of a complete record, here's the complete video.
