Michelle Obama has a perpetual chip on her shoulder. Although she’s a black woman married to a biracial man elected president of the United States, she’s still complaining about “racism” with a straight face — this time during a commencement speech at Tuskegee University (historically black institution). Racism, to certain black Americans in 2015, is someone looking at you funny or “following” you around a store.
We shall overcome, indeed.
Deneen Borelli, Outreach Director at FreedomWorks, recently appeared on Fox News with three others to talk about this topic. Borelli called the speech propaganda.
“Instead of her promoting how America is an exceptional country…she took that route to play the race card and race-bait. [President Obama and his wife] could tell a great story of how [they]…got from Chicago through their Ivy League education…to the White House. Talk about how ‘if I can do it, you can do it as well.”
Conservative Ron Christie, author of “Blackwards: How Black Leadership Is Returning America to the Days of Separate but Equal,” called the speech negative.
“This is a great country. This is the first lady of the United States. Her message should have been uplifting. She was at Tuskegee University, which has so much history in the [black] community, and it was a negative…poor-me speech. And I thought, what world is she living in? She just sounded so angry.”
