An undated photo provided by the United States Department of Agriculture shows USDA official Shirley Sherrod. Mrs. Sherrod is at the center of a racially tinged firestorm involving the Obama administration and the NAACP. Mrs. Sherrod was ousted Tuesday by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack over her comments that she didn't give a white farmer as much help as she could have 24 years ago.
