Theres the stereotype of the Sarah Palin supporter, and then theres Sonnie Johnson.
The 30-year-old African-American mother and wife is featured in The Undefeated as one of the many people Palin captivated when John McCain thrust her onto the national stage as his vice presidential running mate in 2008. In Pella, Iowa today for the premiere of the film, Johnson said she latched on to Palin when the former Alaska governor took the stage at the Republican National Convention.
We were watching it on TV and my daughter was like, A girl can be president?, Johnson recalled. And I said, Yes, baby, girls can do anything. That was the moment -- I saw that look in my daughters eye, that anything in possible. The next week, I went to my very first political event, and that was to see Sarah Palin. John McCain and Sarah Palin.
Johnson has become increasingly involved in the tea party since then, speaking at tea party events around her native Virginia. Shell give the keynote address at an event held by the Charlottesville, VA. tea party on the Fourth of July with her young daughter by her side.
Shell be on stage with me, Johnson said. I want to get her involved, little by little. I like to say that for the black community, nothing will change until we learn to love our children more than we love the Democratic party.

Melanin enriched conservatives for Palin, baby! There are a few of us out there.
I don’t find it surprising at all. Why SHOULDN’T women (and men) of ALL races get excited about supporting a genuine, courageous woman of sound Constitutional and Biblical principles, who walks the talk, and calls upon all of us to live according to the calling of our better angels?
It’s natural to be drawn to such an individual! Bob
Sarah 2012 !
Why does ABC think it so ‘unlikely’? Sounds like a racist comment to me.
Palin is a nightmare to them.
But she's just the beginning.
“...nothing will change until we learn to love our children more than we love the Democratic party.
A play on Golda. It should be repeated over and over and over. Thank you, Sonnie, for loving your daughter AND your country so much.
Some Jews could stand to hear this as well.
The main stream press, and it is main stream as it is the only media you can get for free, will not report on this. If they do they’ll call her “Aunt Thomasina”.
She’s not the only black supporter of Sarah Palin. Here in the Detroit metro area, we have an excellent radio program, Joshua’s Trail, which is hosted by Rev. Levon Yuille and the Abolitionists Round Table. They are very strong conservatives and Sarah Palin. Rev. Yuille frequently speaks at TEA party rallys in the area. Here’s a nice (but dated) write up on the show.
The show is broadcast on Saturday mornings from 8 am to 10 am est and is live streamed here
Also, Ron Edwards, broadcaster and producer of the very fine Edwards Notebook, is a huge supporter of Sarah Palin. You can hear his excellent Edwards Notebook commentaries on Joshua’s Trail and also here

Oops. I didnt mean to post. Just looking :)
Where’s the little That’s Racist boy?
Note that her daughter didn't say 'a white girl' or an 'asian girl' or a 'black girl' or a 'hispanic girl'- just 'a girl'. Momma's raised her right. She didn't see color. : )
Why is the writer surprised? Black, White, Tan or Yellow, WTH does skin color have to to with wanting what is the best for oneself, family and country? This thought process by the left is racist to the bone.
A girl can be president?
Not if the “good ole boys” inside the beltway have anything to say about it.
