Sarah Palin gives King Day advice to President Obama

See also

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., people celebrate the holiday by doing acts of service, attending a commemorative service, or spreading acts of unity and kindness.

However, many are considering the King Day words that Sarah Palin shared with President Obama far from appropriate or kind.

Quoting from Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Palin posted the following comment on her Facebook page to commemorate Dr. King in her own special way:

Happy MLK, Jr. Day!

"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.

Palin didn’t mention any one specific action or example, but President Obama has spoken out quite frequently regarding the issues that many have with his race.

In a recent interview with The New Yorker, The President stated, “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President,” Obama said.

This may or may not be true about Palin, but the post garnered over 30,000 likes and received numerous comments.

One commenter wrote, “This is a day of honoring a man who fought for civil rights, how dare any of you, belittle President Obama. Grow up it is not about you.”

While another posted, “don't worry Mr. President, We can't stand your white 1/2 either!!!!”

How did you celebrate King Day 2014?
