First of all, I would just like to point out that there are many, many black people who do not like the Obamas.
Michelle Obama blaming her unpopularity on her race is almost as laughable as Hillary Clinton blaming Russia and sexists for her loss. Sorry Hillary, women vote against you too.
The Obamas are quite notorious for pulling the race card when someone does not like them or doesn’t agree with them. Why is that? Perhaps it is just the easiest, laziest way to get out of the argument because they have no real comeback. Or maybe it is how they appeal to the whiny emotions of other liberals. Who knows?
According to Daily Wire, here’s what happened:
Michelle Obama, making her largest public appearance since her husband left office, spoke before some 8,500 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration in Denver.
The foundation president, Lauren Casteel, said Michelle Obama had broken the glass ceiling as the first black first lady, but asked about the fallout of doing so.
Obama said, “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” she continued, “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 then says she can’t brush it off and pretend it doesn’t hurt because then those people would be “off the hook.”
Then she went on throw in a line about women, of course, “Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don’t even notice we’re cut. We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we’re still getting up.”
That sounds like our veterans living on the streets, if you ask me. Veterans that you did nothing to help, although they fought for your freedom.
Of course, Michelle Obama benefited often from her race. “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.”
It is actually sad to see her act as if she truly cares about the black community. Democrats have shown over and over again that they do not care about them. They care about keeping them oppressed so that they can offer them welfare. This, in return, secures a democratic vote. They don’t care about they people, they care about their votes.
The Obamas were simply race baiters.
