I agree. I have never complained about blogs being used in this way. That information can be substantiated by many sources.

Fear among the black community, huh? Taken out of context or not, Michelle still alludes to the fact that she believes that the black vote will catapult her husbands numbers higher - and that's based on skin color. Since when have blacks ever been afraid to do anything?

And then there's that whole deal about attending Rev. Wright's church for a long period of time, soaking up his questionable sermons on black anger and hatred for America.

George Carlin @ 4 minutes sums up why she doesn't wear black designers and didn't think twice about it.



SHE DOESN'T GIVE A # ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE. She doesn't know you exist.

Yes. Fear of hoping. Fear that, once again, a black person just isn't good enough.

Yes. But that doesn't mean that what she said makes her racist. She figured that the overwhelming number of black people in the country who were supporting Hillary were doing so because, while many of them would LOVE to support Barack, they didn't think the possibility could become a reality and didn't want to waste their vote.



Since when have blacks ever been afraid to do anything?


Since they've been here. Try living a year in the shoes of a black person and you'll see why many have a fear of possibility.

I'm not going to go through every concern you have about Michelle Obama and try to calm the rumors that are circling in your .. That's really up to you. You're going to believe what you WANT to believe.

Perhaps, if she was decked out in FUBU this wouldn't be an issue
