Sarah Palin Says on Facebook We Should All Be ‘Condoning Racism’
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin officially called for “condoning racism” on her Facebook page Tuesday.
Palin was responding to a crude tirade from rapper Azealia Banks that called for Palin to be raped by a group of black men. “Why don’t we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile,” Palin asked, “like condoning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men – rape.”
Obviously, Palin isn’t actually an open advocate for racism, but simply didn’t realize what “condone” means. The Facebook post has since been deleted and replaced with a version where she called on Banks to “condemn” racism.
