What Palin so conveniently forgets...the so-called American continent was infiltrated by outsiders (in the minority), yet dominated physically, politically, and economically the "majority" of indigenous people (inpendent indian nations)...making them eventually...the minority through genocide. So soon she forgets.

A little-noticed paragraph in the latest New Yorker review of Sarah from Alaska (and Sarah Palin's Going Rogue) reveals that Palin's father told reporters she'd quit Hawaii after a brief stint at college there because she was uncomfortable around Pacific Islanders.
Palin, though notoriously ill-travelled outside the United States, did journey far to the first of the four colleges she attended, in Hawaii. She and a friend who went with her lasted only one semester. “Hawaii was a little too perfect,” Palin writes.
“Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year- old Alaska girls.” Perhaps not. But Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to [Scott] Conroy and [Shushannah] Walshe [authors of 'Sarah From Alaska'].
According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: “They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.”
The paragraph was first noticed online by The New Republic.
