But enough about that false issue: I went on "Hardball" Thursday to say, first of all, that if people who care about racial justice get sucked into debating the legal rights and wrongs of Shirley Sherrod's lawsuit, and exactly what the clearly truncated tape "revealed," we lose. I am not a lawyer, so all I can say is, Sherrod is a person who's been grievously wronged and defamed, who has a right to seek a remedy for an injustice. Lawyers can debate whether this is the correct way to do it. Dan Gillmor has a great post here.
