Sarah Palin Not Concerned About Blacks And Other Minorities

Sarah Palin Not Concerned About Blacks And Other Minorities

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Conservative political icon Sarah Palin plans to attend the Feb. 14 Daytona 500.

The former governor of Alaska and 2008 running mate of Republican candidate John McCain requested credentials to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock-car race.

Palin, who is booked to speak at the annual Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce dinner on Feb. 15, will arrive a day early to attend the 200-lap race at Daytona International Speedway."

The Fox News network has an anti-African American bias, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and their regular guests consistently demonize Barack Obama and other prominent black politicians. It`s not surprising that according to the Nielsen ratings very few blacks tune in to Fox News.

Sarah Palin is trying to solidify her base, and what better way to reach her supporters and sycophants than by becoming a commentator for Fox News?

The demographics of Fox News and NASCAR are identical: Overwhelmingly white teabaggers, nednecks, pro-gun nuts, pro-lifers, homophobes and assorted riff-raff.

Sara Palin gravitates towards institutions that marginalize blacks and other minorities. Palin would make a great Grand Wizard for the Klu Klux Klan, but she`s a terrible choice to be President of the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural United States of America.
