During a commencement speech at Tuskegee University on Saturday, (Michelle) Obama spoke frankly about the role her racial identity played during the 2008 presidential campaign.
……“The road ahead is not going to be easy,” Obama said. “It never is, especially for folks like you and me.”
“We’ve both felt the sting of those daily slights throughout our entire lives. The folks who crossed the street in fear of their safety, the clerks who kept a close eye on us in all those department stores. The people at formal events who assumed we were the help,” Obama said. “And those who have questioned our intelligence, our honesty, even our love of this country, and I know that these little indignities are obviously nothing compared to what folks across the country are dealing with every single day.
You’re as big of a liar as they come. Both you and Barky have put your hatred for America on full display for 7 years.
Those nagging worries about whether you’re going to get stopped or pulled over for absolutely no reason. The fear that your job application will be overlooked because of the way your name sounds.”
First of all, she can stow the ‘nobody know da trouble I seen’ shit, because her background is full of anything but. Her family was solid middle class. She attended Princeton. She pulled in a $273,618 salary while employed at the University of Chicago Hospitals.
She got pretty far for someone who supposedly had it so fucking tough because of her skin color.
Her husband B. Hussein sat in a pew at the Trinity United Church of Christ where Jeremiah Wright goddamned America, preached Black Liberation Theology and railed against ‘whitey’ and Jews. While attending college she aligned herself with radical black organizations like The Organization for Black Unity, and Third World Center, and wrote essays teeming with hatred for whites.
During an address to a graduating class of high school students in Topeka, Kansas, Mo Mo told them to monitor and challenge their older relatives, friends and co-workers for any ‘racially insensitive’ comments they might make. She needs to give one of her home spun lectures to the foul-mouthed racists in her own ethnic group.
Nothing like a privileged, well-off wife of a president pissing and moaning over race and how tough it is to be so overwhelmed. No taxpayer expense is spared on Barky and MoMo’s vaycays, including his frequent trips to Hawaii, Martha’s Vineyard, and the golf course.
Their children attend private schools and dine on the same upper crust cuisine as their parents. In 2009, they threw a star-studded Halloween party for the children hosted by the movie cast of Alice in Wonderland.
But even a would-be Emperor must make sacrifices; he furloughed the assistant chef.
She’s got more privilege, status, and a better lifestyle than most average citizens in this country.
She can kiss my bare, white, hyphenated ass.
