Michelle Obama gave the commencement address at Alabama’s Tuskegee University and her racial anger was on full display. She managed to politicize the event. Instead of being uplifting at the black university, she decided to tell the students we’re all a bunch of racists and they will be constantly fighting racism in all they do.
This is what a First Lady does at a commencement? She stirs more racial division?
If a lesser known person put in a transcript of FLOTUS’ commencement speech today, the university would have roundly rejected it.
She never looks ahead, only behind, and she wanted to make sure to tell the kids that their road will be very hard because they’re black. She is suggesting whites are horrible racists. If true, how did she get so far in life?
“Generation after generation, students here have shown that same grit, that same resilience to soar past obstacles and outrages – past the threat of countryside lynchings; past the humiliation of Jim Crow; past the turmoil of the Civil Rights era,” she said.
“And then they went on to become scientists, engineers, nurses and teachers in communities all across the country – and continued to lift others up along the way.”
“The road ahead is not going to be easy. It never is, especially for folks like you and me,” she said. “Because while we’ve come so far, the truth is those age-old problems are stubborn, and they haven’t fully gone away.”
She went on to claim some petty grievances about being mistaken for the help.
You know what? I’ve been mistaken for the help and I’m white. I was taken to be a sales clerk many times. I have been taken for a waitress.
She claimed people crossed the street to avoid her. She’s so full of it.
She said some question both her love and POTUS’ love for their country. We are supposed to believe she loves the country when she was only proud that one time? If you question her or her husband’s love for America, you’re a racist.
She was only proud when she thought people wanted Obama’s socialist hope & change.
She went on about the United States being inherently and systemically racist. She thinks the country is full of racists but she loves it?
“Fear that your job application will be overlooked because of the way your name sounds. The agony of sending your kids to schools that may no longer be separate but are far from equal. The realization that no matter how far you rise in life, how hard you work to be a good person, a good parent, a good citizen — for some folks it will never be enough.”
She is not only indicting whites, she’s indicting teachers. I’ve worked with teachers for decades and found them to be color blind. Teachers are by-and-large very good people who completely disavow racism.
What is she talking about anyway? What does she mean by people like her? She grew up middle class, went to an Ivy League prep school and then on to Princeton. She became the FLOTUS. Her poor deprived husband became the POTUS. They’re both 1%ers. They are both privileged. POTUS has more in common with Indonesians than he does African-Americans and American poor.
This administration seems to want a race war. We can’t let them turn us against each other. We need to unite because we face far greater threats. The Obamas and their team want us to be a multicultural society, divided on every level imaginable, instead of living in unity as a united country. It will destroy us if we go down this path.
Both she and her husband see everything through a prism of racism. It’s not normal. Pretending that this kind of thing is okay for fear of being called racist is getting very tiresome.
There is something wrong with her.
