Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin delivered a message to President Barack Obama on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day through her Facebook page. After posting a quote from MLK’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, she told the president that it’s time to stop playing the race card.

Palin’s “race card” comment comes after a new profile on Obama was posted on The New Yorker website. After the president made the controversial statement that he doesn’t think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol, he discussed the reason for the drop in his approval rating, which is down to 40 percent.

New Yorker writer David Remnick suggested to Obama that the reason for his drop in the 2013 job approval polls was primarily because of his race. “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. “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president.”

Even though Obama only allowed for race being part of the reason for his low approval rating, the comment struck a chord with quite a few people. Sarah Palin, who is known for adding in her two cents on pretty much every hot issue, took the opportunity to take a shot at the president on her Facebook page and used MLK to do so.

“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 commented after posting an MLK quote. Check out Palin’s post below.

Even though some people agree with Palin about not playing the race card, many believe that using MLK Day to express that sentiment was in bad form. Others have been a bit harsher in their criticism of Palin’s race card comment.

    And Sarah, if you weren’t good looking when you were young, you would never have gotten the exposure you have today because really you are very stupid. All you do is cause chaos and never really come up with any solutions. But keep writing your books about mama grizzly bears. Someone is bound to buy into your nonsense.

      That is so true and funny.

      I have a dream … where a fourth runner up in a beauty pageant …. can one day run for President …. even though she literally knows nothing of her country’s history.

      Just look at all the stupid things she has been quoted saying.
