Sarah Palin has a short message for President Barack Obama on Martin Luther King, Jr. day.

“Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card,” the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee wrote on Facebook on Monday.

The Alaska governor made the comments after quoting King’s “I Have A Dream” speech, and wishing followers a “Happy MLK, Jr. Day!”

Palin did not list any specific examples of Obama “playing the race card,” but her post received more than 11,000 “likes” on Facebook just an hour after it was published.
