If reports of this past affair turns out to be true, I tend to suspect it wouldn’t go over particularly well with the core of Palin’s support. People talk a good game of racial equality, but very few men of any race are enthusiastic about the women of their race being involved with the men of other races.
In the book, which will be published on September 20th, McGinniss claims Sarah had a steamy interracial hookup with basketball stud GLEN RICE less than a year before she eloped with her husband Todd. Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU….
Rice confirmed the story to McGinniss.
Although I have to say there is one thing very suspicious about this story. Glen Rice was never an NBA great.
