Mr. and Mrs. Obama Racists
White White White
Debra J.M. Smith - 03/24/09

I guess once racism is in the blood, it is hard to purge it out, and Mr. And Mrs. Obama just keep letting it slip.

You may recall when Mr. Obama spoke of "typical white" people while explaining his white grandmother's reaction to seeing some blacks on the street. Now we hear Mrs. Obama letting her uncontrolled racism slip out.

She was addressing high school students, clearly wanting to sound concerned that they try to do their best. She spoke of always wanting to do her best. But she just had to slip race into the talk, saying that other girls claimed she talked "funny," like a "white" girl.

There's nothing wrong with people noticing that someone talks with a different accent. However, there was no need for her to have brought it up. And her reaction to it, just does not ring true.

She said, "I don't even know what that means." Now, that is just bogus. Of course she knew what that meant. Perhaps she has some left over guilt from her college days.

Her college thesis has still yet to be released for the public to read. It is said that she was very angry at white people when she wrote it. Princeton has kept her thesis in tight look up, just releasing a summery of it. There is only one reason to keep that locked up.

Part of the summery, showed her to have said, "My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my 'Blackness' than ever before. I have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don't belong." Clearly she believes that people woke up, thinking about her and how they were going to treat her on any given day. Remember, she is only in her forties. It is not as if she went to college in the 1960s.

The woman was graduating from Princeton, yet she behaved as if she was treated like a second-class citizen. Did any of her professors actually speak against the black race? I believe if they had, she would have said so. But she didn't.

Maybe she should try being a right wing conservative born again Christian in a mainstream college. Many professors come right out and speak against the right wing conservatives. Many do not hide their distaste for Christianity. Has she ever seen what Christians have to endure when it comes to the forced feeding of evolution and liberalism in colleges?

Grow up, Michelle. There are serious things under attack in colleges; none of, which are the color of your skin. As for talking of your schoolgirl days, it was tasteless of you to bring up a race issue in your recent talk with high school students. You need to curve your own racism in order to not play the race card at every turn.
