Michelle Obama talks about her
experience with racism as first lady

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 8/27/2020 3:57:31 PM

Michelle Obama has recalled her "exhausting" experience with racism using the example of a simple trip to get ice cream with her daughters during her time in the White House. (Snip) "There was a line, and once again, when I'm just a Black woman, I notice that white people don't even see me. They're not even looking at me. So I'm standing there with two little Black girls, another Black female adult, they're in soccer uniforms, and a white woman cuts right in front of us to order. Like she didn't even see us." Obama said the girl at the


What she paints as racism are every-day minor hassles everyone experiences. But the underlying complaint is that people either don't recognize her or are not gushing over her being in their midst.

Rich, coming from someone who was admitted to Princeton and Harvard specifically because of the color of her skin. Did they ask how long she's been a woman, or what it feels like to have daughters secretly on loan from a couple of biologically male and female fellow travelers? Those would be the greater burdens.

I rate this Mooch story as total BS. It is right up there with Biden's Corn Pop story and Biden's getting arrested with Nelson Mandela. Mooch would never go any where without a security detail in tow. Believe me...everyone knows when the Mooch is in the area.

Oh come on Michelle! I'm white as can be and throughout my life there have been numerous times when someone cut in front of me. Sometimes the person was rude. Sometimes, they just didn't realize someone was waiting before them - I'll admit I've done that myself and immediately apologized. As for people patting your dog and not looking at you, maybe they were nervous b/c they realized it was the first lady or maybe they were only interested in the dog.

I'm calling BS on that story. First I doubt that her secret service detail were out of sight. And the people were surely elbowing each other and whispering, "look who that is". Maybe it was one of those pushy tourists from Japan that we have all encountered in D.C. I am told it is culturally acceptable to shove your way ahead in line there.

Just her way of getting attention again. She is famous for being Barry's wife, nothing more. She is rich because white people in America voted to put him in the WH. She is wealthy beyond imagination yet is still complaining. I am sick of the Obama's.

She goes to an ice-cream store in disguise so no one will recognize her, people in line see past her disguise but play along pretending not to recognize her, and one person further helps her with her "disguise" allegedly cutting in line in front of her. What an entitled wealthy beyond her dreams ,chip on her shoulder, Oprahette!

I bet it is racist when the battery on her iphone runs down, Or when it rains on a day she decided to leave her compound, or when her coffee gets cold or her ice melts in her iced tea. When you view everything as racist, nothing is racist. I remember an article that stated being nice to people of color was racist..Racism is the perfect Catch 22 for liberals.

Sorry, I'm not buying what she's selling but I'm pretty sure that if it did happen the person who cut in line was a democrat. But if it was a busy time for the shop sometimes it's hard to tell where a line begins and ends. I'm not excusing this imaginary woman who should have apologized if this was a real incident. But then if she was a Dem it would not have occurred to her. I don't know if I would recognize MO; she's actually just average looking (I'm being kind) and she did say she wanted to "be normal". The only way I might recognize her without SS protection would be due to her enormous size.

three of the most recognizable black females in the world, and no one recognized them? give us a break, Michelle! And she told the Secret Service detail to hold back, and they did? give us a break, Michelle! (Michelle once told a story of an act of racism against her, when a short white woman asked Michelle, at the grocery store, to reach to the top shelf for the short lady, to grab a can of something.) Just go away, Michelle. Just go away. You are a classless woman.

That's not racism. That's rudeness. Maybe she doesn't know this, but rudeness afflicts all of matter the skin color. How racist of her to think that just because that rude person was white, that she was being rude because Michelle was black. There is literally no reason to think that it had anything to do with race. Maybe because she does not go to places like an ordinary person anymore she has forgotten how rude people can be. Try going to Costco!

When you're a Racist all you see is color. Anything that happens to you or around you that can be construed as bad; is seen as color. A Racist projects racism. FTA: I notice that white people don't even see me. How unaware can she be? 'white people' 'don't even see me'... so white people don't see her. They can't be racist if they don't acknowledge her color, THEN, cut in line in front of her.

First of all, that white woman was Hillary, who is probably the only white woman the two Secret service details would be allowed to get within fifty feet of the First Lady. Secondly, she has never waited in line her whole life.

The Dems have to hammer the racism theme hard. Trump will not capture a majority of the black vote but he's gaining a larger percentage of it. That's not only a killer for the Dems in national races but trickles down in the statewide (Senate) races.

It's all she talks about. Sher and Barack were raised in privilege and they hate America. I'll bet race is pretty much all they have in common. They must bore each other to death.

Cry me a river, Michelle. The rudeness in the ice cream shop had nothing to do with your color. The people who pushed in front of you were just rude. And the woman behind the counter was just trying to serve people. She probably really didn't care who they were. And about walking your dogs and not being noticed . . . they pay attention to the dogs because the dogs are beautiful -- and expensive, as I recall. You don't know why they aren't paying attention to you. Maybe you're just boring as watching paint dry, Michelle. I don't find you at all appealing.

Nobody could see you, Michelle, because the crowd of Secret Service agents was keeping everyone else away. They weren't ignoring you because you were black. They were ignoring you because they were annoyed because they probably had to wait in line even longer because you were there with your entourage causing traffic jams, parking problems, and making everyone have to wait until you were served first. If only the rest of us had your problems.....

Shortly after Obama became President a news release was made about how Michelle "escaped" to Target. She made a comment that she was met with racism while shopping when an elderly white lady asked her, at...what...5 foot 10? get something off a top shelf. She claimed an elderly white lady would not have asked an equally tall white woman of the same age to help her.

There in lies the problem with too many blacks. Everything that doesn't go their way or if they don't get their way then racism is to blame. I see it everyday where I work. The actions that are just normal workplace expectations such as turning up on time, and doing the job are viewed as unrealistic with the tone of racism blended in. The older black employees aren't like that at all, and they get fed up with the younger employees complaining all the time.

Rudeness is not racism, the women, assuming the event actually occurred, was rude, would probably have been rude to a white woman just as much. Assuming rudeness and bad behavior is racism is just being hyper sensitive. Of course we are seeing a lot of that on the left in the last few decades.

If she ever went to an ice cream shop while First Heifer, she had the Secret Service clear out that peasants first -- probably for a 2 block radius. They were not worthy to be in her presence!!! Like all racist lie-berals, she has to lie and make up BS stories because she has no actual stories involving racism where she wasn't the racist involved!!!!

Someone who took 100 million dollar vacations at public expense has NO standing to lecture anyone about their experience with racism.

Michelle Obama confirmed to me that the definition of racism changed. Racism would be that she was not served ice cream because of her skin color. People standing in line for ice cream are thinking about one thing - ice cream.

Have we ever heard Barack or Michelle Obama express appreciation of being given the honor of serving as President and First Lady of the United States of America? Just a word or two would be nice. But all we hear from either is pettiness and whining for perceived wrongs. What an undeserving couple they turned out to be.

UTLA teachers have been warned not to post vacation pictures on social media as the union continues to seek a safe return to in-person instruction amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report Monday. The teachers were urged to keep spring break pictures off social media because it could hurt the union's argument that it's currently unsafe to return to the classroom, according to a screenshot that appeared to be from a roughly 5,700 member Facebook group titled, "UTLA FB GROUP- Members Only."

Alana Mounce, the party’s executive director, reportedly notified the newly elected party chair, Judith Whitmer, that she and other staff members were resigning, according to The Intercept. The party’s operations director, research director, communications director and finance director all resigned after the left-wing candidates of the “NV Dems Progressive Slate,” which was run by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the Left Caucus, beat out the Democratic Party’s “Progressive Unity Slate” on Saturday.

Student loan forgiveness may become

Here’s what that means for borrowers

A significant provision making any student loan forgiveness tax-free has been included in the $1.9 trillion federal coronavirus stimulus package that’s working its way through Congress and will likely soon be signed into law. Currently, any student loan debt canceled by the government can be considered taxable and levied at the borrower’s normal income tax rate. For example, if someone earns $50,000 a year, and was at a 22% tax rate, and received $30,000 in student loan forgiveness, they might be slapped with a $6,600 bill from the IRS. Soon, borrowers may be off the hook from these payments. What

Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill postponed the start of Derek Chauvin's trial in the killing of George Floyd on Monday, after an appeals court ordered him to reconsider his original decision to dismiss a third-degree murder charge against the former Minneapolis police officer. The decision came as a pool of potential jurors waited to start the selection process. The delay comes as Chauvin's defense attorney, Eric Nelson, said he is finalizing an appeal asking the Minnesota Supreme Court to review the question of whether Cahill should consider reinstating the murder charge.

SANAA - Yemen’s Houthi forces fired drones and missiles at the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil industry on Sunday, including a Saudi Aramco facility at Ras Tanura vital to petroleum exports, in what Riyadh called a failed assault on global energy security. The Saudi energy ministry said there were no casualties or loss of property from the attacks. The defence ministry said it intercepted an armed drone coming from the sea prior to hitting its target at an oil storage yard at Ras Tanura, site of a refinery and the world’s biggest offshore oil loading facility.

MINNEAPOLIS — Late last year, a 14-page questionnaire began to arrive in mailboxes across Minneapolis and its suburbs. It asked if the recipient had watched the video of George Floyd dying under a police officer’s knee. What about the protests against police brutality, it wanted to know — did you go? How do you feel about Black Lives Matter? It asked respondents to list their education level, any martial arts training, even their favorite podcasts.

LA County is considering returning a beachfront property to the descendants of its original owners who were the first Black landowners in Manhattan Beach, California. As KABC-TV reported, Willia and Charles Bruce's property was taken away when the city council used eminent domain in 1924. According to the outlet, the couple's property, which is now a lifeguard building, served as a beach resort for Black families at the time amid racial tension and discrimination.

If guilty, Chauvin would be the first former police officer to be convicted of murdering a Black man in Minnesota.

It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people.

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
