Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card,
--Sarah Palin's words of wisdom for today
Classy, Sarah.  On MLK day, no less.

Racists hate being called racists.  Anytime you call them out on their racism, they attack you for "playing the race card."  And Sarah has had plenty of practice.

Chris Mathews called Sarah Plain, correctly, the "poster face of racism".

When Obama defeated Hillary in 2008, her comment was Sambo beat the bitch.

It was Sarah Palin who, with all the subtlety of a wrecking ball, started the Muslim traitor "palling around with terrorists" theme that quickly engulfed the McCain campaign.  Those that questioned her racial baiting weren't from "the real America" and she spoke fondly of the "pro-America areas of this great nation" (wink, wink).

She has claimed that Obama is single-handedly leading this country to ruin, yet simultaneously says he's a lazy black guy.

She once said that black people don't understand the word slavery; while lecturing people last year that slavery was just like our national debt.  (And preceded her idiotic statement "This isn't racist, but...")

As governor, she refused to recognize Juneteenth (which is Freedom Day for slaves) in violation of Alaska law and refused to do it even after she got sued for failing to carry out her gubernatorial duties.

Alaska is a state where 35% of the people are black, Asian, or Alaskan native, yet she couldn't find one minority to put on her staff and worse, said "she didn't have to."

She fiercely  defended Rush Limbaugh's racism, the "duck dynasty" bigot who thought blacks were better off under Jim Crow, and defended Laura Schlesinger for using the n-word 11 times in a racist rant.  (I'm sure she only got upset when she found out Laura earlier called her a moron.)

And this is just a partial list concerning her disregard for African Americans.  Jews, Muslims, gays, Asians, Hispanics all had their turn.  But its really all of their fault for playing the race card and trying to "divide" us.

Poor Sarah.  Why can't she just insult and degrade you people IN PEACE!!?!

8:50 PM PT: Snopes gave the "sambo" comment an undetermined rating since it was referenced by a single source.  I find it plausible given all her other items, but you could give her the benefit of the doubt on that one.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
