Is Sarah Palin Racist?
The more that comes out about Palin it seems that she is a woman that only a Republican can love.
She did refer to herself as a pitbull with lipstick and people laughed at the joke. Those in Alaska know only how true it is.
In a letter that went viral last week, Wassilian Anne Kilkenny said that many people were afraid to speak out against Palin. Kilkenny said was speaking out because “bad things happen when good people stay silent”. But she also expect retribution for speaking out.
“I am no fool,” Kilenny wrote. “She is immensely popular here, and it is likely that this will
cost me somehow in the future: that’s life.”
In an article for the LA Progressive, Alaskans confide that she is “vindictive and mean”. The site also interviewed a waitress who served Palin and five to six other people, who said she overheard Palin say to her table, “So Sambo beat the bitch!”
“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.
Then, almost with a sigh, she added, “But that’s just Alaska.”
Other people who know Palin have said she has referred to Alaskan Aboriginals as “mukluks” and “Arctic Arabs”.
Her husband, Todd Palin, is half Yupik Eskimo.
With Govenor Palin being thoroughly vetted perhaps McCain has heard rumors of Palin’s alleged racist attitudes. Whether the rumors are tue or not, her being thought of as making bold (bigoted) statements against minorities will play well with voters who have stated they won’t vote for a black man.
It’s not that McCain or Palin is racist, but they probaby want to make sure the racists get go the polls, too.
