In Michelle Obama’s first big appearance since her hubby left office, she cries racism. Typical of any Obama family member, really, so we shouldn’t be shocked.
Speaking in front of 8,500 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration in Denver, Michell dropped the bomb.
The Denver Post reported foundation president Lauren Casteel said, ‘Michelle Obama had broken the glass ceiling as the first black first lady and asked about the fallout of doing so’:
“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” she said, referencing being called an ape and people talking about her bottom. “Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”
She said she can’t pretend like it doesn’t hurt because that lets those who do the hurting off the hook.
“Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don’t even notice we’re cut,” she said. “We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we’re still getting up.”
But of course, Michelle milked her race every step of the way. “Michelle Obama is part of the affirmative action generation of above-average but far-from-stellar performers who were granted preferential admission to America’s most elite institutions,” Dinesh D’Souza wrote in 2008.
Michelle notes that she graduated with honors in her major. Again, the problem is that her undergraduate thesis is on the web. You might expect that she wrote about Shakespeare’s sonnets or the political evolution of W.E.B. Du Bois. Well, no. Essentially Michelle Obama wrote about the problems of being a black woman at an Ivy League university.
Here is a typical passage: “By actually working with the Black lower class or within their communities as a result of their ideologies, a separationist may better understand the desparation of their situation and feel more hopeless about a resolution as opposed to an integrationist who is ignorant to their plight.”
