Sarah Palin’s Racist Remarks Remind Us of Why She’s Not Fit for Leadership

Palin's 'Taliban' tweet antics prove she's unfit to lead

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityScholarship in Action 

Most of us know by now that Sarah Palin has as much chance of becoming president as Jesse Jackson has of joining the KKK. She has a tremendous following, but only a tiny amount of political credibility, making her a cross between Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter and a kid who keeps failing ninth grade. In fact, rather than simply emulating Coulter, Palin is applauding her at her very worst moments, which is a very bad move for even the strongest conservative.

Recently, Palin put one of the final nails in her presidential coffin by "favoriting" a tweet by Ann Coulter. In the tweet, Coulter mentioned that she was excited about a sign outside a church that said:

"The blood of Jesus against Obama history made 4 Nov 2008 a Taliban Muslim illegally elected president USA: Hussein."

Sarah Palin is not fit for any thing positive and she continues to prove that. She is only fit to do the donkey work of White supremists who are too coward to come out with their feelings. Clearly that doesn't make her any brave if that's what she is thinking. It only make her a jackass because let's face it, she is not the most intellegent person around and we black people know that. The woman only gets cheered on by racist whites and selfish ingrid blacks.

Don't be deceived by people speaking into microphones. Some of them are idiots. Sara Palin high-tailed it out of Alaska when charges were being brought against her about her "mismanagement" of money while Governor. Her rich buddies supported her and got her a gig. Once she realized that was not going down for the Alaska mess--Her next move was to continue her official role as a "hater" and speak out about all things Obama. So far that is all that she does. Has she offered a solution to the financial crisis caused by rich white folk who don't give a damn about everyday people like me? NO! Does she have an answer for how to create jobs in our country? NO Did she help save the auto industry or encourage creating clean energy and new jobs? No!! Sara Who???

The only thing worse than bad publicity, is no publicity. Palin, Bec, Rush et al, are playing the biggest practical joke in history on us, and cashing in. Fear works, but President Obama and the Democrats are mistaken if they think Palin is going to go away if they ignore her. If we really wanted to finish Palin off, the Democrats should take some money, and sponsor Sarah Palin look-alike contests or casting calls all over the country, especially where she makes appearances.

I live in the Northwest, but my moms side of the family is from Texas and I've noticed more whites are tossing the Racist word around, Look at Juan Williams.I Listen to drunk white people a lot and some of the things that come out of their mouths are freaking amazing. Look what fox did when Obama was running. Look what they did with Keith Olberman suspended! for being contributing to democrats, But Bill O'Reilys been on for years! Don Imus annoys the crap out of me! Glenn Beck when he had that Rally on 6/26(MLK's i have dream speech) We as black people need to point these things out! I love Obama but he aint going to help a us because that would look "racist"(shoot they got on Oprah for buildings schools in africa)All I want is 40 acres and a mule and Me and Obama would be cool, But He still is a politician that doesn't want to look like he is favoring blacks (even though white politicians have been doing it for... forever)Basically whites are thinking well we elected a black president so racism is over! But as blacks we have to realize it took over 300 years to get to this point, blacks are still getting beat by the police! White family's are still living off of their great great great grandaddy's money he made on the backs of slaves! Most of our black leaders get locked up or killed, thats why we have so few to choose from; Obama's good but, we need some more choices besides Jesse Jackson, and AL Sharpton...what about you Dr. BOYCE?
