ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- As governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin has had an at-times testy relationship with black leaders in her state.
They say they've been ignored in their eforts to get more minorities hired in her administration.
Now, as the presidential election nears, Alaska's black leaders say they're not surprised to see the Republican vice-presidential nominee at the center of the controversy over injecting the race issue into the campaign. Palin has repeatedly insisted that Barack Obama's former preacher, the inflammatory Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is a legitimate issue even though John McCain himself has said it's out of bounds.
Many of Palin's black constituents say they're disgusted with the campaign's racial overtones.

I never thought that there were more than a handful of blacks in Alaska, but I was told that black Americans comprise 10% of the population of Fairbanks.
How many black people can there be in Alaska?
This is just so much BS. When they have nothing left, they pull the ol’ race card. You’d think people would wise up to this vicious method. Not yet, it looks like!
I am sure they will vote in Ohio.
Keep the narrative alive!!!
There goes the black vote, I bet over 90% of them will vote for Obama now.
All my life, I’ve felt “ignored” by Alaska’s minorities. You don’t hear me whining about it. These freeloaders need to get a job AND A LIFE!
We be aggrieved....
Palin married an Eskimo, for goodness sake.
Palin has the highest approval rating of all 50 USA Governors at 80%, including a 75% approval rating from Alaskan democrats.
Absolutely pathetic lies from the Ass. Press propaganda machine.
Well then, this explains why Sarah only has an 85 percent approval rate.
A hot Eskimo...........:0)
Just who are these endlessly kvetching “minorities”? No mention of Gov. Palin’s husband, who is a Native American. Instead, we hear of constant carping by some aggrieved minister that the state doesn’t do enough for him; why doesn’t he do for himself and his community like the rest of us do? The real “minority” in Alaska is from those NOT in the 87 percent of Alaskans who approve of Governor Palin’s performance — won’t see THAT in the AP article, will we?
The Race card. Wow, is it just me that sees Civil war coming? Have the Racist democrats started a war?
Yup..is a good looking guy.
Seriously, though, I am so sick of this crap.
They really need to stop thinking that they should have a personal experience with an elected official who is hopefully doing the job that the citizens hired them to do.
I've never had a personal experience with any elected official. I merely hope s/he would do the job I help to hire him/her to do... sheesh !!
Get off the cross... Somebody needs the wood, people !!!
While we are busy being racist, don’t forget, Osamabama’s buddy is a WHITE GUY named Bill Ayers. So no, Obami doesn’t let race get in the road, anytime he can do hang time with a terrorist, he’ll be there.
What gives, P. Diddy told us there are no black people in Alaska
Things are just going to get uglier. A very bitter, vengeful mulatto is about to enter the White House, with a wife who has been a black separatist race hustler all of her adult Life. If you have ever objected to any form of welfare whatsoever, get ready for government’s guns to be turned on you full force.
In Alaska African-Americans are the minority of minorities. The Native Americans who are there are the ones that deserve any benefits of minority status. When one is the minority, one should not have the voice of the majority. (except of course, if one is ACORN, and cheats like h3ll.)
The best way to get people hired is to get people educated. That means putting away the books on socialism, activism, and the radical agenda. And picking up books on history, math, and science.
You could expand on that......
The issue as to Jeremiah Wright = “God Damn America” - not race.
What about the other 7?
For me, his race has nothing to do with it. His policies are contrary to our constitution. Therefore he has become an “Enemy from within”. I swore an oath to defend this country from enemies from outside and enemies from within. I must uphold that oath
The next AP story?
Black, midget, homosexuals feel Palin is racist. Oh the horrors!
Is that why she enjoys an 85% approval rating?
Every day I'm ignored by the government I consider to be a good day.
PLUS, I hasten to add, the contingents of Black Panthers and other radical black groups are waiting in the wings for their marching orders. Ok, we’ll wait too, is that racist? No, it’s called self-defense.
That's what I see in Barack Hussein Obama.
I just remember his crime and crack replies along with it. That’s all.
I’m sure if there were any qualified ones they’d be in her administration. There I feel better.
Will the AP follow up with whether downstate, bitter, religious, gun-toting whites feel “neglected” by their junior Senator?
Sarah made it possible for blacks (lower case for the rest of my life!) to pay less in taxes than any other state.
Exactly! The guy’s complaint just made me appreciate Palin more — she doesn’t believe in caving in to shakedown schemes.
In San Francisco, liberal callers to talk-show stations were claiming that Sarah’s use of the terms, “Joe Six Pack” and, “Hockey Moms” was racist.
You mean they are just complaining now? How did Sarah ever get such a high approval rating?
This big revelation should have come out right away!
I have had it with these people, I have had it with these freaking people. They should all go and jump in the lake, or maybe fornicate elsewhere.
Palin runs for VP, minorities hardest hit.
Oh my. Good Job
I mean really. So true. Palin's too busy helping the rest of the eskimos....excuse me....the rest of the population, rather than turning flip flops or bow down and worship the handful of black people living there.
