Alaska's minorities feel ignored by Palin
AP ^

Posted on 10/18/2008 7:04:10 PM PDT by rface

"It's really been like you're going to a Ku Klux Klan rally," said Javis Odom, an Anchorage minister. "Gov. Palin is really showing her true colors on the national stage.".....

. ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska's black leaders say they're not surprised to see Gov. Sarah Palin at the center of the controversy over injecting the race issue into the presidential campaign.

Palin, Republican John McCain's running mate, has repeatedly insisted that Barack Obama's former preacher, the inflammatory Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is a legitimate issue even though McCain himself has said it's out of bounds.

"She has no sensitivity to minorities," said the Rev. Alonzo Patterson, a Baptist minister and president of the Alaska Black Leadership Conference. "She's really inciting a lot of African-Americans to get out and vote."

[ snip ]

Among Palin's 417 appointments or reappointments to boards and commissions since taking office in December 2006, 240 have voluntarily identified their ethnicity. Eight are black, 49 Alaska Native, six Asian or Pacific Islander and one is Hispanic.

Jeremiah Wright is a nasty, sick man who pretends to be a minister. I don’t care if he’s black, he’s still a nasty sick man who pretends to be a minister.

Governor Palin belongs to the party that freed the slaves, enshrined African American rights in the Constitution, and passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Barack Obama belongs to the party of the Ku Klux Klan. Just ask Senator Robert Byrd.

I wonder how many KKK rallies Javis Odom has been to. He sounds as though he may be a racist.

Boo hoo hoo. Place the race card. Cry racism. Keep it up. All this accusing everyone of being racists is driving people to hate your guts and becoming racists towards you. I am SICK AND TIRED of EVERYTIME something happens to a black or Hispanic, that the race card is pulled out and whitey is blamed. NEVER is a black or Hispanic accused of racism. Only whites.

During my time in the Army, I once had a black soldier accuse me of racism. I blew a cork. I told him, if he had evidence, put it on the table. I told him this in front of my commander. I told him to drag in his witnesses. Show the paper I wrote it on. Prove it. He said he had a witness, his buddy, who was also black. The commander called the guy in and he said he NEVER heard me use a racist term. It was all a ploy because the soldier was in the wrong and his only chance of getting out of trouble was to use the race card! It didn't work. By the way, my commander was BLACK!! And he backed me.

BTW> I don't think I will watch SNL tonight. I haven't watched it in many years, and I have a bad feeling about this.....either it goes well (good) - but, I believe that the SNL crew is going to do something ugly and I will want to torture some media-type because of it. I wouldn't trust that SNL crew .........

I would rather NOT watch SNL and get some sleep.

I wonder how Black Baptists would feel about the Left if their beliefs (theoretically identical to those of white Baptists) were under attack?

Something tells me when the teaching that homosexuality is forbidden is outlawed as a "hate crime" Black churches will be exempt.

I'm white and my governor is white: Tim Kaine "The Eyebrow". He has not done diddly-squat for me. He doesn't even know me. I receive absolutely zero benefit from his being in office as governor of Virginia. Should I 'feel' ignored or neglected by him?

These freakin people want local, state and Federal government to feel them, to pay attention to their every whine, complaint, runny nose, cough and sniffle! What happened to individualism and people taking care of themselves. I have never had a governor in my life pay attention to me or even take notice! I wish, just wish these freakin whiny minorities would get over themselves. Go back to the country of your origin and whine to your honorable, benevolent dictator to pay attention to you. See how that works out for you. When Obama the Messiah takes over, then he will pay attention to you! Just like that ex-Ruskie KGB says about "useful idiots" they will all be put up against the wall and shot. Whine and complain and you'll be the first useful idiot to go...

I’m terribly ignored by my Congessmoron Pete Stark, I haven’t received any federal government handouts ever. And the Democrats in Sacramento, they ignore me too. Where is my state government money handout.

Oh that’s right, I pay taxes so I guess my standing in life is to spread my wealth.

“She has no sensitivity to minorities,”

Meaning she has no sensitivity to the reverend. Who cares? 95% of blacks are going to vote for Obama. We know blacks are not going to vote for McCain, so why kowtow to them?

Here's what's funny. She's injecting race into the election, but he is the one who is president of a race-based organization...

Barack Obama belongs to the party of the Ku Klux Klan. Just ask Senator Robert Byrd.

He also belongs to the party that welcomed the Populist Party into its fold. The Populist Party was a regional, anti-semitic party in the Southwest that helped shape some of the democratic policies.
