Shirley Sherrod "Complete Video" is Incomplete

I just watched the "entire" Shirley Sherrod video on the NAACP website. And it is edited. (Funny, they complain that Breitbart maliciously edited it...)

The headline says: "VIDEO: WATCH THE SHIRELY SHERROD SPEECH IN FULL"

But it is not full... it is edited. Something was cut out. I do not know what. I'd like to though because it is at a crucial point in the "white farmer" story.

At 21:00 (21 minutes) exactly there is a "cross-fade" -- which is a video editing technique to smooth out a video cut. And it's at the end of the story of the white farmer she worked with.

If the NAACP wants us to trust them, they need to post the WHOLE video. You can see the edit for yourself. This is the link on the NAACP page.

UPDATE from Rockport Conservative on this subject:
I don't have the energy to view this again today,  but I think the point being misssed, or deliberately left out of this story is the laughter at how a white man might lose his land by the members of the NAACP audience.  Is that what is edited out?
