I don't blame him...the man can't SEE. So it's no wonder that Governor David Paterson of New York would accuse SP and Republicans of being racist when making jest of Senator Obama's former occupation as a community organizer.
Said Sarah at the RNC in response to people questioning her executive experience:
"So I suppose a small town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except with real responsibilities."
Said Paterson on her comment:
"I think the Republican Party is too smart to call Barack Obama 'black' in a sense that it would be a negative. But you can take something about his life, which I noticed they did at the Republican Convention – a 'community organizer.' They kept saying it, they kept laughing."
"I think where there are overtones is when there are uses of language that are designed to inhibit other people's progress with a subtle reference to their race."
Yeah...I totally see how her back-biting was construed as racist. Newsflash, other Governor: SP was being a bitch. Not a racist. Two completely different things. Yes, Republicans are making fun of the Senator's work as an organizer. I, too, don't trust a man who willingly chose to work in a community he's not even from instead of building da Benjamins on Wall Street like the rest of his Ivy-League classmates. I mean...would he do that as President? I think that is the question SP was bringing to the table.
While Obama was busy getting all the glory helping disenfranchised union workers (Todd is a Union Man, btw) get their jobs back, Sarah was busy bringing pride to her town and state by competing in the Miss Alaska pageant. You don't see her throwing that around in campaign commercials because she's humble.
You're being sexist by calling her belittling statement racist.
