I think that is might cause her some problems assuming it gets out of the Internet and into the break room...

Backgrounder for this speech (http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F0CE1DD173FF936A25757C0A9619582 60&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=all):
The Nation of Islam originally intended to join a march led by black community groups through Grays Ferry, the working-class area where the incidents occurred. But Mr. Farrakhan agreed to appear in the more controlled atmosphere of a church rally if Mr. Rendell would join him as a speaker. Despite the strong objections of the city's leading Jewish groups, including the Anti-Defamation League and the Board of Rabbis of Greater Philadelphia, Mr. Rendell agreed, explaining that he was putting the needs of the city ahead of religious differences.
It is unclear to me as to whether Rendell is praising Farrakhan or someone named Rodney Muhammed (sp?). He clearly praises the Nation of Islam.
