This article of Governor Sarah Palin is about her position on diversity. As the governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin has a mix of population. In Alaska, the issue of race relations usually focuses on Alaska Natives, who make up 18 percent of the population. Blacks, make up 4 percent. Alaska minorities question Sarah Palin on diversity.

A quote from the article: "She has no sensitivity to minorities," said the Rev. Alonzo Patterson, a Baptist minister and president of the Alaska Black Leadership Conference. "She's really inciting a lot of African-Americans to get out and vote."
The article has many quotes from some disgruntled African-American church leaders. These church leaders are questioning Sarah Palins stand on culture and diversity in Alaska and the whole U.S.

I believe that when a person of high importance in the United States government like Sarah Palin, any news right now is or can influence the public for the opposing party.
