How Sarah Palin Has Excluded African-Americans


On April 29, 2008, 14 leaders of Alaska's black community met with Gov. Sarah Palin to voice discontent with her minority hiring record. Palin's response, which was first reported by journalist Earl Ofari Hutchinson, only compounded her icy relationship with her African-American constituents.

I think Palin is a racist, bigoted, and power-hungry LIAR.

She has alienated a lot of people of color in Alaska.

There's an on-going feud with her and native Alaskans who were steamed by her pick of a non-Native for some position after 25 years being that way. She is also seemingly apposed to native Alaskan subsistence.
Quote:
...
As soon as Palin was sworn in as governor she set a firm course against Native subsistence rights. One of her very first decisions was to continue litigation that seeks to overturn every subsistence fishing determination the federal government has ever made in Alaska. The goal of Palin’s lawsuit (now known as Alaska v. Kempthorne) is to invalidate all the subsistence fishing regulations the federal government has ever issued to protect Alaska Native fishing in navigable waters. If successful, Palin’s attack would move every subsistence issue into the courts and thus tie up Alaska Native subsistence for generations. The reason is no secret: to diminish subsistence fishing rights in order to expand sport and commercial fishing.
