Michelle Obama has made numerous racially-charged statements in the past, but none so atrocious as her commencement speech at Alabama’s Tuskegee University on Saturday.
The historically black school welcomed the First Lady’s obscene comments, cheering as she implied over and over again that they will always judged by the color of their skin by their white colleagues.

So stating facts is wrong?
She is talking about her own life experiences and then tells them to not use it as an excuse.
So how is that bad?

Let’s not forget that Hannity has a long history of palling around with racists. He also has a history of race baiting Michelle Obama. So it was no surprise that Mrs. Obama’s remarks – in which she talked candidly about the hurt she and Barack Obama felt dealing with racism (“the sting of those daily slights throughout our entire lives”) – should send him reeling
But, graduates, today, I want to be very clear that those feelings are not an excuse to just throw up our hands and give up. (Applause.) Not an excuse. They are not an excuse to lose hope. To succumb to feelings of despair and anger only means that in the end, we lose. But here’s the thing—our history provides us with a better story, a better blueprint for how we can win. It teaches us that when we pull ourselves out of those lowest emotional depths, and we channel our frustrations into studying and organizing and banding together—then we can build ourselves and our communities up. We can take on those deep-rooted problems, and together—together—we can overcome anything that stands in our way.
Coulter acknowledged that America owes black America a debt but, she added, “I think we’re making it up now, when, you know you’re getting admitted to Princeton when you can’t read, is that enough yet?”

Blame White People...it's worked like a charm the past 20 years.
The Chickens have come home to roost....Indeed
