I have a problem with what she actually said.
She treated black voters as a group that should do something very stupid... Go out and vote a straight ticket without regard to the issues.


Are you really surprised that a politician('s wife) would make a one sided recommendation?

Inescapable fact.

Souls went to the polls, and they have spoken. Fried chicken notwithstanding.

Who really cares what she said?

No.
I am not really surprised that she treated black voters as a stupid lot that needs to do as they are told, no matter what.
I am not surprised that there are members here that would support such crap.

Going on a network that specifically targets a racial demographic and then telling them not to think but to just go vote a straight party ticket that has a reputation for capitulating to that demographic?? I see racism


How is that racist?

Support such crap? I didn't support anything.

So you are saying that she is being racist against her own race?

Not racism....arrogance.

Like her husband, she thinks she can bamboozle people into thinking the Obamas are just like them.

Straight out of the Bush 'How to be Folksie' Handbook.

Well, I responded to those saying it was racism so I don't know how your post is relevant in the context of that discussion.

On an equal footing, it would be,"Vote for our party. We will do this, that, and let me tell you how we will do it."

On an unequal footing, "Vote for us. Don't ask us how we will accomplish things. Just vote for us."

Last time I checked, there was no royalty in America.

Just think if a person of non-color and a non-Democrat said this:

To a mostly black audience (paraphrasing - obviously - smiling and joking)

You know we have your best interest at heart on all the issues. So don't worry your little heads about it. Just vote my straight party ticket and we have your back. Then go out and celebrate with some down home fried chicken!


Just imagine what the media and the Democratic Party machine would do. That is why I am upset. The enormous double standard.

She is an elitist.
And she treated a group of a certain race as if they are too stupid to think for themselves.

Because Michelle is a known black on black racist? What's the matter? No smart answer to that one? Did you guys even think it through?




She is an elitist. And she treated a group of a certain race as if they are too stupid to think for themselves.


But you said she was a racist. Don't go moving the goal posts now. The certain race is her own race. I ask again, is she being racist towards her own race?

It should be obvious to you that is was simply a messaging issue. It was taken out of context and is being over inflated as an attack against Mrs. Obama. If you think what she said was racist then you are the racist one and are projecting your beliefs into the situation.

In case I missed anything, it's Bush's fault.

"For most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on..."

“So can we, if we go out to the polls, can we, say, we have a souls to polls on Sunday, can we do soul food after we vote?”

Obama responded, “Absolutely. I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote."
______________

Not that I would defend any Obama, but it's pretty clear she did NOT day what you stated she said in your title. Misleading.


Meanwhile our kids are starving eating her crappy school lunches.

How about you give me a smart answer.
If John Boehner had said this... "Blacks vote a straight Democrat ticket and celebrate with fried chicken afterwards"
Would he be a racist?

And yes.... Michelle Obama is treating a group of people as less... And the group is a certain race.
You think that blacks can't be racist against other races?
Ever heard of too black?
'House N-word' ever hear of that?

No, it's saying "I believe my political party has the best solutions".

No, it's saying 'don't think about it and ignore the crap that they've pulled. She didn't talk about solutions and she didn't educate. She just said not to think about it and vote for the democrats. That's different.


I never heard her say "not to think about it". She said it didn't matter "who said what or did this". I don't know what that is in reference to, because I didn't hear what was said before that.

You said that she was being racist. She either is a black on black racist, or it wasn't racism. Since you are going out of your way to try to sidestep the obvious implication of yoour own words, I'd say you know damn well that she wasn't being racist.

See my edit.
Black on black racism exists.

How about if Boehner told a group of rich white businessmen, "rich white businessmen should vote a straight Republican ticket and celebrate with a very dry martini". Racist?

Such BS anyway. The fried chicken remark was a reply to a question about soul food. This has been pointed out.

You are moving the goal posts by adding in another person, and taking different statements out of context, adding them together, making it look different than what was actually said.

Pretty weak stuff.
