...oh, and that "divisive in times of turmoil," thing? You're a fuckin hypocrite!
"I just spent a few beautiful Alaskan days with some beautiful Americans in my husband's birthplace - they are Todd's family and they are Yupik Eskimo. In the decades that our families have blended, I have never heard one proud, patriotic member judge another member based on skin color. Both Todd and I were raised to measure a person according to their capacity and willingness to love, work, forgive, contribute, and show good character. We're joined by the vast majority of Americans in this belief whereby we measure a man by his character, not his color. Because of amazing efforts and accomplishments by those who came before my generation, it is foreign to us to consider condemning or condoning anyone's actions based on race or gender. Being with our diverse family in a melting pot that is a Native village just days ago reminded me of that." (source)I guess that would explain why Palin wouldn't hire black folks when she was governor:
While meeting with Black leaders concerning the absence of any African Americans on her staff, Gov. Palin responded that she doesn’t have to hire any Blacks and was not intending to hire any.Now if they were half-white or Eskimo? Things would have been very different, right? Yep, you can put lipstick on a hypocritical-racist-pig but it's still a pig, folks.
