First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at Tuskegee University in Alabama on Saturday. And I’m not going to make you guess what her topic was, because it should be obvious by now: race.
It’s always about race, specifically white people being horrible to black people. Which is getting to be a ridiculously pointless topic when black people are being just as horrible to white people.
For example, a white, 61-year-old, Baltimore County man was brutally beaten by a group of black teenagers after he found two of the girls fighting on his car and told them to clear off.
CBS Baltimore reports that “he suffered broken eye sockets, a broken nose, broken ribs and a brain bleed.”
Yet Michelle Obama and her ilk – both black and white – don’t care about that story because it doesn’t fit into the PC narrative, where white people are all inherently racist and therefore owe the abused black race everything. Which means we’re supposed to ignore what happened to that poor white man and instead focus on all the mean things people have said about Michelle.
Here’s some of what she said at Tuskegee:
“… over the years, folks have used plenty of interesting words to describe me. One said I exhibited ‘a little bit of uppity-ism.’ Another noted that I was one of my husband’s ‘cronies of color.’ Cable news once charmingly referred to me as ‘Obama’s Baby Mama.’… As potentially the first African-American First Lady, I was also the focus of another set of questions and speculations; conversations sometimes rooted in the fears and misperceptions of others. Was I too loud, or too angry, or too emasculating?”
Oh. My. Word. Where do I even start?
How about with the “little bit of uppity-ism” remark. Whoever said that might very well have been racist, in which case they were doubly stupid. Because Michelle Obama isn’t just “a little bit” uppity. She’s one of the most arrogant, self-focused and demanding people who ever walked the face of the earth.
Which means she is “too loud,” “too angry” and “too emasculating.” She’s also racist and un-American. Guess what? So is Hillary Clinton. (And both of their husbands). So those accusations weren’t about race. They were about her personal abysmally deficient character.
Even if that wasn’t true, what about Sarah Palin? Liberals tried to eviscerate her for her accent, her values, her down-syndrome baby, the fact that she’s female… Was that all okay because she was white and white people, unlike blacks, naturally suffer from negative personality traits?
I’m not trying to say that white people can’t be racist. Because they can. All I’m saying is we as a multi-racial society should start focusing on bettering ourselves in general instead of picking and choosing who and what is acceptable to care about.
