Uncle Tom’s Tavern – Chitina, Alaska

Reporter Charley James has written an interesting piece about Sarah Palin and Alaskan racism.  James spoke with an Alaskan waitress who overheard Palin saying, “So Sambo beat the bitch” after Obama beat Clinton in the primaries.  I think it’s kind of funny that even Palin’s racial slurs are outdated.  This is a great example of what I’m trying to teach people – Alaska is stuck in the late 1800’s!  Here’s a link to James’ article:

Uncle Tom’s Tavern pictured above is in Chitina, Alaska right outside Wrangell St. Elias National Park.  Overt racism is alive and kickin’ in Alaska.
