Barack Obama Gives Shirley Sherrod A Ring




 by Joseph Ernest July 22, 2010


 Newscast Media Shirley Sherrod had earlier said she wanted to speak to Barack Obama. She finally got her wish when he gave her a ring. The White House released this statement:

    The President reached Ms. Sherrod by telephone at about 12:35. They
    spoke for seven minutes.

    The President expressed to Ms. Sherrod his regret about the events of the
    last several days. He emphasized that Secretary Vilsack was sincere in his
    apology yesterday, and in his work to rid USDA of discrimination.

    The President told Ms. Sherrod that this misfortune can present an
    opportunity for her to continue her hard work on behalf of those in need,
    and he hopes that she will do so.
