Palin's Alaska critics sound like racists

Since when is dating a black man a "fetish"? Such is the claim by Sarah Palin's Alaska critics, according the sleazy, skeevy, creepy, stalker Joe McGinniss in his sleazy, skeevy, creepy, stalker book on Sarah Palin.
 
While moving in right next door to the Palins in Wasilla, Alaska, in order to spy on them and gather gossip around town for his trashy book, McGinniss reports that critics of Palin claim that while working as a sports reporter she dated a star athlete who later became an NBA player. He is African-American. Therefore, the claim was that the then-unmarried Sarah Palin had a "fetish" for black guys.
 
This is sickening in the characterization of dating someone as a "fetish" based on race as much as the fact that McGinniss let this one go, put it in his book, and that no one on the left, in the media, or leading African-American voices have so much as uttered a peep.
 
I am so disgusted. Are you?
