Political Analyst Examines Claim that GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin Said She Wouldnít Hire Blacks In a meeting with a group of prominent African-American leaders on April 29, 2008 Alaska governor Sarah Palin allegedly said that she wouldnít hire blacks in her cabinet or on her staff. This explosive chargeóif true-- would cast serious doubts on Palinís fitness for the vice-presidency. Political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson does an in-depth examination of the accuracy of the claim. He talked to members of Palinís staff, the McCain-Palin campaign committee, and Alaskaís black leaders. Their reactions to the allegation of racial insensitivity by Palin sheds new light on the role race could play in a McCain-Palin administration. ďThe rumors that Governor Sarah Palin is hostile to blacks and minorities abound,Ē says Hutchinson, ĒThey have been grist for the gossip mill on the internet. As always the truth of Palinís views and actions on race and diversity are far more complex than the allegations and speculation.Ē ďDid Palin Really Say She Wouldnít Hire BlacksĒ is on the September 24 edition of the Hutchinson Political Report website at earlofarihutchinson.blogspot.com ďEarl Ofari Hutchinson is an author and political analyst. His new book is The Ethnic Presidency: How Race Decides the Race to the White House (Middle Passage Press, February, 2008).
