Shirley Sherrod has sued the blogger who posted an edited video that made Sherrod seem racist. The incident caused Sherrod to lose her job as an US Agriculture Department Official. The lawsuit indicates that the blog damaged Sherrod’s reputation and career. The speech was released in its entirety, after it was discovered the previous content had been edited. Last year Shirley Sherrod sat down with Jean Ross during an appearance at Emory University to talk about the incident and how she has dealt with diversity and racism.
