What Michelle Obama Leaves Out
About 'White Flight'

Original Article

Posted By: abuela10, 11/7/2019 7:35:41 AM

Michelle Obama recently complained about "white flight" in her old Chicago neighborhood. By "white flight " she means that whites left her neighborhood as it became increasingly black. "Upstanding families like ours, who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better -- as we moved in, white folks moved out, because they were afraid of what our families represented," she said. "I always stop there when I talk about this out in the world because I want to remind white folks that y'all were running from us. This family, with all the values you read about: You ran from us. And you're still running."

Mooch is another arrogant, affirmative action product. What else should one expect from her? Why didn’t they send their kids to HBUs, instead of Harvard and Michigan?

Actually, I really don't give a flying f(&% what this he/she has to say about anything...she and her 'husband' need to go back to Kenya and build his outhouse library there, and stay there..

This foolishness is coming from a rich Ivy League woman who lives in Martha's Vineyard. Those of us who live in the real world know to put our kids in AP classes, because the general classes are nothing but baby-sitting time with a bunch of blacks constantly disrupting the class. The teachers can't do anything for fear of being accused of "racism". That idiot Obongo said that if he had a son "he'd look like Trayvon"....baloney, him and his wife wouldn't even let their daughters go to the same school as Trayvon. They are just pandering to blacks to get their votes.

Ms. Obama made the crucial admission in her complaint about "white flight." She concedes that the departure of the whites resulted in "calamitous" problems for the neighborhood. What she thereby admits is the dirty little secret of all pioneer integrationists like her family in this neighborhood context. Ms. Obama concedes unless whites stay in a neighborhood, its tipping to majority black almost always ruins it. In other words, Ms. Obama wanted hers to be the ONLY (or one of a very few) black families in an all-white neighborhood. She knew too many black families . . . well, you know. Why is she then blaming white families for their fear of a black neighborhood she shared with them? If her family liked this new neighborhood, and had to endure difficulty getting into it, shouldn't' "White flight" be a good thing for blacks? They could have the whole neighborhood without resistance. But Ms. Obama didn't want that, and she knows it. If we are to have a truly candid "conversation" about race in this country, Ms. Obama and others will have to admit their own motivations.

I have to admit that I have never understood Michelle Obama's appeal. She appears to be intelligent, funny, level headed, but when you go down the list you see grievance after grievance re: white folks....everything boils down to that, from a woman who has done really well (having seen examples of her University thesis you really have to wonder how she managed the grade) and yet........... I also recall her anger at Target when a much shorter (white) woman asked her to reach something on a top shelf, and she either bristled because she thought the woman was racist (!) or maybe didn't recognize her? Plus Oprah Winfrey, at one point, was sure she was being aced out of the election campaign because of her weight.

You know what Michelle, I partially agree with you. The sight of some people who might have been wonderful neighbors absolutely triggered a flight response. And how sad it is that the pattern of disproportionate violence perpetrated by blacks would cause the undeserving to be looked upon with suspicion. But to blame people for recognizing the pattern and reacting in a rational manner is ridiculous. If you can't grasp why people react to deadly pattern recognition I can't help you. But here's a little secret for you, we aren't just reacting to skin color. When I see some wannabe badass strutting around with his pants half off in a hoodie at 70 deg F, bassackwards ball cap flashing gang signs flapping his jaw I'm thinking there's a chance he's bad and I don't care what color he is. I see a well dressed person walking down the sidewalk minding their own damned business I'm thinking no problem. Stop relishing in making people uncomfortable by dressing and behaving outwardly just like the criminals for the purpose of blaming me for my difficulty in sorting out the good from bad. You know what Michelle, I don't know enough about mushrooms to know which ones are edible and which ones will kill you so I don't go around eating mushrooms I find in the yard. When I encounter an apple tree I have no problem plucking an apple and eating it. Pattern recognition is survival. Don’t pattern yourself after danger and I won’t read danger.

Michelle and her husband had a huge and powerful bully pulpit for eight years. I could cry when I think of how they squandered the opportunity to empower black youth. Instead they convinced the young black community that they were victims. Victims of authority in particular and whites I general. How this privileged and remarkably untalented couple ever reached such heights is inexplicable. A community organizer and his disbarred wife became the toast of the entire world. What a waste. She was lauded for her intelligence and her style. To me she was the epitome of the angry black woman with a huge chip on her shoulder. In her poorly written senior thesis she whined about how uncomfortable she felt being a black womanizer on the Princeton campus. I have a feeling she is going to settle right in on Martha's Vineyard.

Michelle Obama is openly hostile in her attitude toward non-blacks and whites in particular. This attitude is fairly common in Chicago. People notice this hostility. That, combined with the extremely high violent crime rate by blacks in Chicago would make any non-black concerned for their safety. If she was honest with herself she would realize her attitude is part of the problem. It is expensive and inconvenient to pick up and move, so you know these people feel threatened. Proclaiming that ONLY black lives matter doesn't help.

I am about to become another white fleeing... My neighborhood was about 50 percent white, 25 percent black, 15 percent Asian and 10 percent Hispanic when we arrived 20 years ago. Today it is 70 percent black, 10 percent Asian, 10 percent Hispanic and 10 percent white. The diminished number of white residents has nothing to do with racism. Most are retirees with too large houses looking to downsize. When the properties go on the market, black buyers are most likely to make an offer...good offers. It is simply another example of self-segregation.

The stark reality of American society flies in the face of Ms.0bama's arguments. Black men between 18 and 40 are 2 1/2 % of the population and commit 65% of all violent crimes. An unknown black male confronting you is thirteen times more likely to harm you physically than a white one. Unless you enjoy a seven figure 'retirement' income and live on Martha's Vineyard, these statistics are a nonignorable part of your reality. A middleclass white woman will still clutch her purse more tightly when a black male Harvard professor gets on the elevator. If he is a professor of economics, even I would clutch my wallet tightly! How we got here and why things appear to be getting worse rather than better is the issue we should all honestly face. Rather than hiding behind a blanket one sided accusation of racism.

Or...perhaps it's just that some people wanted newer homes and more space, which the suburbs provided? And if the always-tolerant, ever-understanding Michelle insists there was a color factor...OK, then. Maybe it's a cultural thing that white people like as much space as possible around them and prefer new homes to old. I thought ALL cultural proclivities are supposed to be accepted and understood, not attacked.

Truth be known,Mike is more closely related to a type person like the woman trying to cut head in line at in her silver Mercedes at Popeye's Chicken. She's cut from the same cloth. Michelle Obama and her partner in crime approached the Presidency with all it's glory and might, as if they had just won the lottery. They mistreated the dignity of the presidency and that of the office of the first lady They offered no dignity, class or couth. They remain lost not realizing they are has beens. I would rather refer to a former president and his spouse in a more respectful way but it behooves me to garner up any respect for those two grifters.

White flight was caused by blacks sticking their dirty fists into white’s faces, something too subtle for Michelle’s tiny brain. Also the neighborhoods blacks moved into became sewers in a short time, devastating all property values.

The Obama couple achieved the ultimate goal with 'white folks' or white guilt folks putting them there. What the first black couple could have done was heal the country but what they did was squander their achievement. They both brought racism to a higher level 24/7 for eight long years. When it came to race the Obama's weren't 'authentic' and did exactly what Michelle is talking about practiced a bit of 'black flight' of their own. Their children didn't attend some all black school with low rates of graduation and even lesser use and grasp of the English language that the brilliant Barack espoused when reading from a teleprompter. Now they practiced black flight to Martha's Vineyard to be among whites where the black population is minimal. Michell and Barack should look inward to find the real racist and live their miserable lives spent looking for 'white folks' showing racism. I never gave any thought in 60 years until the presidency of Obama and eight years after that I can say I recognize racism from this couple and the attention they put on it. Now I can proudly say I'm a racist thanks to Michelle and other noted blacks that I'm a racist thank you Michelle and Barack for the heads up I'll be more cautious now. Keep it up Michelle us 'white folks' are listening. The Obamas have set this country back over a hundred years to the times of the Civil War and managed to cancel Abe Lincoln in trying to unite this country.

Many years ago we lived in a wonderful neighborhood where we were basically all owning our first homes, living just three blocks from an elementary school. We were all young parents, or young couples planning to start families. Lots of baby showers. Suburb near Dallas, excellent schools. We were pretty much a homogeneous neighborhood, except with one couple being doctors from India. It was the type of 70s neighborhood where the children played outside, both front and back, with supervision. Some of the mothers were home all day, some worked or went to school. We knew all of the neighbors on the block by name, and most by friendship. One black couple moved in directly across the street. They probably had about the same household income as we did, but both of them worked. We welcomed them and life went on. We were all quite alike with the exception that their furniture was more of the red crushed velvet variety. The neighborhood had no crime that I knew of, and certainly none in our own block The black couple's black friends and family came and went on visits. Within three months, the black couple's house had been burglarized. What a surprise, as we'd had not other burglaries. We were close enough that they gave a dinner for us a few months later when my husband was transferred and we had to move to another part of the state. So the only black couple in this low-crime/no-crime neighborhood was the only couple having a home burglary. Looking back with a little more life experience, I realize that the black couple had brought burglary with them---not in their own behavior, but in their culture. I am today convinced that some of the their own friends and family, knowing that the household was insured (and rationalizing incorrectly that it "paid for everything"), did the convenient burglary insurance scam so common in some cultures. The black couple moved into a white neighborhood but could not leave their black culture.

Michelle's " I was a poor Black Child" schtick is getting old. The American Dream post WWII was to make your money in the City, then move to the 'burbs to be able to afford enough room to raise your kids. It had nothing to do with escaping Black People. As the Blue Collar jobs either went South, or Overseas, working people went where the work was, the new class of dependents, created by the War on Poverty legislation, stayed and made the city populations what they are today.

I experienced similar things as a freshmen in High School in Warwick, New York from the white kid perspective. We moved from Turlock, California where the sun shined every day and life was good to, in my case, hell. There was a home for wayward boys in town and for some reason many came to the public high school. It would cost me 50 cents to use the bathroom. I was pushed and punched everyday. There were "kids" attending school who were 19 years old and carried knives with them. We moved to Ada, Michigan where I went to school with the Devos's, the Van Andels, the Siedmens, and others of like achievement. Different worlds !!

The actual reasons that black students are disproportionately suspended or expelled from public schools throughout the country are that black students disproportionately fail to follow the instructions of public school administrators and teachers, along with disproportionately perpetuating violent incidents that are actually criminal assaults against both students and teachers. The disproportionate amount of black perpetrated crime around the country in relation to the percentage of the black population, and the possibility of becoming a crime victim, or dead, as the result of black perpetrated violent crime is the main reason for flight, both black, white and others, from black dominated communities. Only those black communities can fix that that societal situation and not the politicians and political operatives who fraudulently deflect blame.

Years ago, I lived in a neighborhood bisected by a four-lane street. The houses on one side were mostly occupied by whites and the other side by blacks. One day a black coworker who lived on the opposite side to mine asked for a ride home because his car was in the shop. I drove him to his side of the neighborhood (one block away from my house) and was appalled at the condition of the houses there - yards with no grass or high weeds, rusted gutters, chipping paint and driveways with big nasty cracks. That's when I started thinking about moving. It wasn't skin color, it was the obvious deterioration of the neighborhood.

I live in an upper-class neighborhood with a very low crime rate. It is a mixed community with people of all races. We do have an area where lower-cost housing is available for families to get a start here. My kids rode the bus to middle and high school and the only extreme situations in their lives happened on the school bus. Black kids who for some reason are almost always bigger than their white contemporaries constantly bullied and physically abused white kids on the bus. It was both black boys and black girls who also are much bigger than their white counterpoints. Since we were already in a beautiful area with great schools we were not going to leave but what Mr. Elder says happened to him happened to my kids too. I don't know the answer but Jesse Jackson was right when he said that he was relieved when he heard steps behind him and when he turned the kids were white!

Whites, and others that can, leave because of high crime rates and thuggish behavior. No one wants to live among that no matter what races live there, especially if your kids are at risk. Then the Black community doesn't want Black criminals arrested and refuse to help police identify criminals. The crooks are out and about in your neighborhood. Part of this mentality is the corruption of Black "leadership", like the Obamas, that sell victimhood. The good thing is that Trump's economy is making some Blacks take a hard look at their culture and how toxic it is in some cases.

I agree with every negative thing said about the entitled affirmative action queen. She's a person of, maybe, average intelligence who has been given things she hasn't earned all of her life, solely because of the color of her skin. Yet she remains resentful. I'm surprised, however, that no one has mentioned the courage and integrity it took for Larry Elder to write this article. Number 7 hit the nail on the head. It is unfair that good, upstanding Black families -- and people like Larry Elder -- have to suffer from conclusions drawn because of the disproportionate amount of crime and low achievement in the Black community. But, Michelle is blaming the wrong people. She shouldn't blame those who run from the crime, she should blame the bad actors of her own race and call them out.

I know that this is pipe-dreaming, but I wish folks who talk like Obama and Holder could sit down and have a reasonable discussion with someone like Larry Elder. I would like to bear witness to a respectful conversation based upon facts. If we could deal in facts -- and not just feelings -- we could create solutions to the problems of racism in this country. But it takes respectful conversation.

White flight ? Why did this money hungry woman run from the black neighborhood ? Always the victim. Always with the excuse. If blacks were held to the same standard as whites, things might be different. Sixty years later and it's still "You don't like me cause I'm black" Like I told one in the early seventies "I wouldn't like you if you were purple" Mooch have new dentures or veneers like Joe ?

On Wednesday afternoon, a CNN analyst cooked up a "conversation" between two Republican senators in order to smear President Donald Trump, his party, and Fox News. He later admitted to having completely fabricated the quotes, but only after The Washington Post's self-described conservative Jennifer Rubin retweeted his "report." "Overheard convo between two Republican Senators who only watch Fox News. 'is this stuff real? I haven't heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we're up s**t's creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence,'" Joe L

EXCLUSIVE: Three-time Emmy nominee and American Horror Story alum Billy Eichner is joining FX’s Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky sex scandal limited series American Crime Story: Impeachment in the role of famed journalist and Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge. It was the Drudge Report that first broke news of the White House affair on Jan. 17, 1998, then reporting that Newsweek editors were sitting on a story by investigative reporter Michael Isikoff. Eichner joins Beanie Feldstein who is playing Lewinsky, Clive Owen as Clinton, Sarah Paulson who is already prepping to play Linda Tripp, and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones.
Sekulow Nails It: ‘Why Are We Here?’ 14 replies

The Trump impeachment proceeding, which got rolling Tuesday, failed to come alive until about two hours into the proceedings, when suddenly, one of the President’s attorneys, Jay Sekulow, wheeled on the culprit who’s really on trial — the Democrats. Speaker Pelosi, Congressman Schiff, and their whole camarilla, they launched this proceeding and levied the charges and they are the only ones who are required to prove anything. This is something to bear in mind as this drama unfolds. No one in America ever has to prove his or her innocence, not even the President (he may not lurk above the law, but neither is he pilloried below it).

A black Second Amendment supporter at the January 20, 2020, rally pulled back the covers on the establishment media’s attempts to paint pro-gun Virginians as “nothing but white rednecks.” Listen as the pro-Second Amendment American says, “I do not in any way, shape, or form support Governor Northam’s and the Democrat’s gun control.” “What I also don’t support is the fact that every news piece you’ve seen on this, this weekend, they’ve always brought up the issue of race, as though it’s nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here who care for the Second Amendment,” he continued.

We’ve seen a lot of newspaper dodges over the years, but the idea of endorsing two sharply opposed candidates for the same nomination is a new one on us. It turns out to be the latest innovation of the New York Times, which, in the Democratic presidential primary, just endorsed both Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren. Good for the Times, we say, though just what the Gray Lady is thinking is hard to decipher from the two full broadsheet pages she devoted to this brainstorm. Had the Times picked one of the two women as the better candidate, it might have delivered the full

We observe today not a victory of party but a celebration of socialism — symbolizing an end as well as a beginning — signifying a decline as well as change. For I have affirmed before you and any God that may exist the same words our forebears prescribed nearly two and a half centuries ago. Our philosophy is very different now. For capitalism created all forms of human poverty and gave us the power to abolish all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are now but nightmares for a woke generation

In this era of partisan divisions, Joanne Rogers often laments how much this generation of children could use the kindness radiated by her late husband. "I’ve never known it in my life to be like this (time period)," she told NBC News ahead of the Thursday release of "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." "One of the most important things to Fred was reconciliation. I think he would be appalled," she says of the political discourse of this era. "I am appalled."

The impeachment hearings against the President of America begin today. You’d think it might make the front page of, say, the New York Times. Its lead story, though, is about how the Supreme Court appears set to vindicate President Trump in his campaign to force Congress to act on the dreamers. The off-lead is about Turkey. The lead editorial is about — wait for it — electrical cigarettes. We’re not here to lecture the editors of the Times about how to edit their newspaper. Their Page A1 today, though, suggests that in respect of impeachment, the eyes of even the Gray Lady are starting to glaze over.

In case you missed it, a video came out this week that makes it look like ABC News affirmatively protected billionaire alleged pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. This came on top of allegations from journalist Ronan Farrow that NBC News killed his reporting on alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein to protect their own in-house sexual abuser, morning anchor Matt Lauer. In case anyone's still wondering why people don't trust the press, this is a pretty good place to start. Amy Robach, anchor at ABC, was caught on the recording saying that, under pressure from the British royal family, ABC executives killed her story that would have exposed sex offender Epstein:

Michelle Obama recently complained about "white flight" in her old Chicago neighborhood. By "white flight " she means that whites left her neighborhood as it became increasingly black. "Upstanding families like ours, who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better -- as we moved in, white folks moved out, because they were afraid of what our families represented," she said. "I always stop there when I talk about this out in the world because I want to remind white folks that y'all were running from us. This family, with all the values you read about: You ran from us. And you're still running."

Prince Charles demanded global green taxes as part of a radical push to tackle climate change in a seminal speech at Davos today. The Prince of Wales met Greta Thunberg at the Word Economic Forum after flying in to Switzerland on a private jet—but did not hold talks with Donald Trump. Charles even sounded like the 17-year-old Swedish activist as he asked VIPs: 'Do we want to go down in history as the people who didn't do anything to bring the world back from the brink?

Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore appeared on the Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday and said “if we don’t fix climate change, like, now,” then “we don’t have four years,” before we’re all “done.” “If we don’t fix climate change, like, now, we don’t have four years,” proclaimed Michael Moore. “We’re done. We’re done. We’re done.” Moreover, despite endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) last October for the 2020 presidential race, Moore went on to suggest that the Democrats should “double down” on the woman card by running an all-female presidential ticket in 2020.

An emotional Joe Biden broke down in tears in an interview on Wednesday when asked about how his late son guides him on the campaign trail. "Beau should be the one running for president, not me," Biden said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." Beau was the attorney general of Delaware when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He died in 2015 at the age of 46. Joe Biden said his son pushed him to stay politically engaged during his cancer fight. "He was worried I would walk away" from public service, Biden said on Wednesday morning. "He is part of

Illinois lawmakers are raising questions about the integrity of state elections after the secretary of state admitted hundreds of non-citizens were registered as voters, and could have cast ballots illegally in the 2018 election. In a letter, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office said a “programming error” in a signature pad at driver services facilities led to hundreds of non-U.S. citizens accidentally being registered as voters. The Secretary of State’s Office said the problem has been fixed Tuesday, but state lawmakers and election authorities are just beginning to raise concerns. “We view it as a significant problem," said Matt Dietrich of the Illinois State Board Of Elections. In 2017, then-governor Bruce Rauner signed

Though only 17, Greta is an accomplished nag, a word we don’t use lightly, but it fits because she is perpetually badgering and complaining. In her speech, which the New York Times posted in transcript form as if it were actually important and must be

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Women in four key states – Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin—could decide who occupies the White House next year. And they may be turning away from President Donald Trump, according to a newly released poll. Yet, many women voters in these states remain undecided. And women at this point are a little less motivated than men to vote in November’s presidential election, according to the poll from Baldwin Wallace, Ohio Northern and Michigan’s Oakland universities. In the Great Lakes states, more women voters said they would support the Democratic Party’s yet unnamed candidate over Trump if the election were held today.

People close to Robert Mueller believe "something happened" to the former special counsel over the course of his two-year Russia investigation, according to a reporter. The Washington Post's Carol Leonnig, who is the co-author of the new book A Very Stable Genius about President Trump, described on Tuesday how difficult it was for some of Mueller's close family friends to watch his shaky testimony before Congress last summer. “Phil [Rucker] and I, my co-author, we are not medical professionals, but over and over again, John, we heard from people who are very close to Bob Mueller who found him a different person, a changed person, after two years of this investigation,”

Democrats conspired with foreign agents, lied, cheated, and denied due process to Donald Trump. If they were willing to do that to a duly elected president in order to obtain power, what should Americans expect them to do to them should they refuse attempts to be disarmed? Democrats understand that an armed America can say, “No!” And they can’t have that. If they want to radically change the America extant for more than two centuries, they need to first disarm Americans. And they realize asking nicely is not going to accomplish this.Therefore, the ever-equable Democrats have suffered a recrudescence of their desire

OAKLAND — Following a unanimous vote by the city council Tuesday night, Oakland has now become the first city in California to ban criminal background checks on potential renters. “Indescribable emotions and feelings,” said John Jones III of Oakland, who got out of prison in 2012 and struggled to find a place to live in Oakland despite his well-paying job as an aviation mechanic. Jones said he’s among the many who left prison only to end up on the streets, contributing to Oakland’s homeless crisis. That’s why he’s been lobbying hard for the Oakland City Council to pass the Fair
