Sarah Palin to Obama: In Honor of Martin Luther King, Stop Playing Race Card
On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged President Barack Obama to stop playing the race card to divide America.
"Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card," Palin said in a Monday Facebook post.
Palin also quoted King's immortal words from his "I Have a Dream" speech: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
In a recent series of interviews with The New Yorker magazine, published on Sunday, President Barack Obama said he had "no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president."
He added, “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president."
