A conservative website posted video of Mrs. Sherrod's remarks, causing a furor that led to her condemnation by the NAACP and her ouster by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Until Tuesday, she was the Agriculture Department's director of rural development in Georgia. Then, she said, she was pressured by superiors to resign. (AP Photo/NAACP, ho)
