Is Sarah Palin Racist?

with one comment

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.

  1. I once got kicked out of a Denny’s for being racist. I was laughing and joking with a black waitress. We were having fun; everyone was having a good time. But the booth cushion was bugging me because it was so soft that I felt like I was sinking. She asked if we needed anything else, and I responded, “Uh, yeah! How ’bout a life preserver?” I had already mentioned the seats before.

    Guess what she was so certain I said that she called the manager?

    I guess it’s just a sign of the times. Everyone has to watch their backs. As esoteric as that joke was, I still think I deserved the benefit of the doubt. But all Democrats want to talk about is skin. All the black figureheads (ie Jesse Jackass) want to talk about is skin.

    All Republicans want is to eat their waffles.

    Don’t be such a racist.
