Sarah Palin celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day this week by slamming President Barack Obama and urging him to stop "playing the race card."

"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 her Facebook page Monday.

Palin didn’t elaborate on her post, but USA Today's Catalina Camia suggested that the comment could be in response to an article in the Jan. 27 issue of The New Yorker, which contains a series of interviews with the president.

"There's no doubt that there's some folks who just really dislike me because they don't like the idea of a black president," Obama reportedly told the publication. "There are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I'm a black president."

Palin also made headlines for a different reason this week when she addressed Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman's viral post-game interview. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, the former governor of Alaska linked to an article about Israel's relationship with Canada.

"As significant and dangerous progress is made by Iran no doubt wanting nukes, and with the continued threats against Israel by radicals in the region, Canada's steadfastness is praiseworthy," Palin wrote. "Friends, THIS issue, along with innumerable domestic failures of government, should warrant more concern and focus than things like, oh, say, how a Seattle Seahawk verbally ramped up after intense competition and hard fought victory."
