The pity party is getting old. Michelle Obama had more assistants than any other first lady but she did nothing. She and her husband spent more money on vacations than any other first family in history. She also lost her law license. I don’t know why, but she needs a job other than bothering us crying because she is no longer as important as she always thought she was.
According to Vox:
While her husband gets most of the credit for breaking political glass ceilings, Obama was a trailblazer in her own right as the first black first lady. Speaking to her time in the White House, Obama revealed that the role opened her up to criticism that often veered into full-on racist insults. In short, punching through all those glass ceilings came at an emotional price.
“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” she told a crowd. “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.”
Obama specifically referenced how racially charged attacks — like ones that called her an ape and focused on her body — personally hurt her.
This is far from the first time Michelle Obama — who, before she went on to Princeton and Harvard, grew up in a middle-class neighborhood with a stay-at-home mom, and a dad who worked as a Democratic precinct captain — has complained about the toll racism has taken on her.
In a thesis she wrote as an undergrad she complained:
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. Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with Whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be Black first and a student second.
These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant.
This is a theme that she has carried with her her entire life, including at this commencement speech she gave to a black audience of Tuskegee University:
Award-winning actor James Woods isn’t in the mood to shed any tears over Michelle Obama’s life, apparently.
Responding to the tweet commenting on Mrs. Obama’s “horrific ‘struggles’ as First Lady,” Woods responded with this savage comeback:
Woods has a good point. As we are taught: Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
I am so sick that even the privilege of having an honorable position in the highest office of the land she feels oppressed and sends the message that this country is racist after her husband and she created it. I point out a true racist nation would never have voted Obama in office. You are betraying your voters. Hope and change? you gave us hopeless change and are still advocating it. I can’t agree more with James Woods he speaks for me. She should be encouraging opportunity that lives in America and gives thanks and praise that they live in such a country.
Do you agree with James Woods?
