In honor of Martin Luther King, millions of Americans have found ways to show their appreciation for the fallen civil rights leader, but one Republican took a shot at President Obama in doing so.

Taking to her Facebook page, former governor of Alaska and Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin posted a quote from Dr. King and followed it up with a message to President Obama.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card.

It's interesting to note that on a day of reflection on the struggles of the civil rights era and the issues that the country is still dealing with today, a conservative failed politician would point out the "race card" that she accuses the first African American president of using.
