These Outstanding Black Commentators Support Palin Against Chris Mathews "Racism" Charge

The left has charged Sarah Palin with "racism' over a Facebook post she made which included the phrase "shuck and jive". Palin refuted the charge in the strongest possible terms as reproduced below. Since then a number of Black commentators have added their thoughts about this ridiculous charge/Mathews comment as linked below;

"Instead of remaining silent on this charge of racism, I'm glad the Governor has fought back, pointing out the left's hypocrisy, for they have used the phrase themselves. It takes a lot of nerve to call someone else a racist for using a term you yourself, and those on your side of the aisle, have used."

I like  personally. However, his use of the race card against Rs last night was repugnant.

Here is Palin's comment;

"For the record, there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase "shuck and jive" – a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head. In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President ...Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivalled Obama’s in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.
I’ve been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup’ik Eskimo, I’m not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it’s directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews’ use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I’ll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and “when hell freezes over,” as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.
The outrageously outraged reaction to this expression from perennial hypocrites like Chris Matthews has only made me laugh. Mr. Matthews, let me share with you my favorite Irish toast: “May we always be happy, and may our enemies always know it.”
