Former Governor of Alaska and former VP candidate Sarah Palin trolled everyone on Martin Luther King Day this year by telling President Barack Obama to stop “playing the race card.”
By officially posting the most backwards statement on Facebook ever, Palin proved a couple of things. One being that she does not understand white privilege in the least, another being that she’s completely blind to anything going on in terms of race relations in this country, and still another being that she doesn’t know what the term “race card” even means.
Palin’s white privilege, or just pure ignorance, may be what has caused her to be completely unaware of issues involving racism in the US. She has obviously never taken a look at some statistics involving rates of unemployment, education or incarceration.
Regardless of the fact that the president doesn’t play the race card, no amount of race card playing can change cold, hard facts and statistics.
Let’s not forget to mention the irony in posting such an ignorant comment on MLK day.
All in all, I’m done with Sarah Palin. With any luck this is the last we’ll hear from her.
