Who cares about the Redskins? Probably not first lady Michelle Obama, who turned her sights on insulting the Romani minority community
While describing her struggles as a working mother, the usually politically correct first lady used the racial slur, gypped.
“The first thing I tried to do, which was a mistake, was that I tried the part-time thing… I realized I was getting gypped on that front,” Obama
told ABC’s Robin Roberts at the White House Summit on Working Families. “What happened was I got a part-time salary but worked full time.”
The term “gypped” is a racial slur deriving from the word “gypsy,” a slur for the Roma. The slur refers to the act of defrauding or robbing
through practices such as swindling or cheating. The correct usage of the term is most certainly not synonymous to “slighted or “cut short.”
Defenders of Romani point out that the abbreviation, “gyp,” is nothing more than a callous slur used by the culturally insensitive. Similar slurs
to “gypped” include “Jewed down” or calling someone an “Indian giver.”
First things first. I post this with tongue firmly planted in cheek. I found it funny. In no way, do I think Michelle Obama is racist towards
But with the PC environment, the drama with the Washington Red-toned-pigmented-epidermis, I thought this was too good to pass up.
What do you think?
Should she apologise?
Attend sensitivity training?
Get fired from her position?
As always, I leave it to you, ATS, to read, reply, ignore, or simply buy used mayonnaise and resell it to Canadians.
