Michelle Obama’s Racist Sentiments

She ridiculously asserts that blacks are “invisible” to white people.

Anytime someone expresses the thought that “all people of (x) race act this way,” that expression should be identified as prejudiced and racist. One of the significant factors that has made America the envy of the world is the commitment to our collective national identity. To be an American is not based primarily upon some ethnic or regional identity. It rests upon the Liberty enshrined by the Constitution. This is why so many Americans are dumbfounded by the charge of being declared racists simply because they share a common physical trait, as the charge itself is racist.

It’s ironic that the party that loves to claim for itself the mantel of “diversity” and “anti-racism” is the same party that promotes racist identity politics.

A prime example comes courtesy of Michelle Obama. During a recent discussion on racism, she relayed a personal anecdote that unintentionally exposed her own profound personal racism and that only serves to further stoke the fires of racial division. “This is what the white community doesn’t understand about being a person of color in this nation, is that there are daily slights,” Obama dubiously asserted. “In our workplaces, where people talk over you, or people don’t even see you.”

She then related a story so unbelievable that we have to wonder if it’s apocryphal like so many other Democrat autobiographical lies:

Denielle and I, when the girls were little, this is when I was first lady. I am Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States of America, and we had just finished taking the girls to a soccer game. We were stopping to get ice cream, and I had told the Secret Service to stand back because we were trying to be normal, trying to go in. … And there was a line, and once again, when I am 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. And the girl behind the counter almost took her order. And I had to stand up. … So I stepped up, and I said, “Excuse me?” I was like, “You don’t see us four people standing right here? You just jumped in line.” She didn’t apologize; she never looked me in my eye; she didn’t know it was me. All she saw was a black person, or a group of black people, or maybe she didn’t even see that because we were that invisible. I can tell you a number of stories like that. … What white folks don’t understand. It’s like, that is so telling of how white America views people who are not like them. You know, we don’t exist. And when we do exist, we exist as a threat. And that, that’s exhausting.

Actually, what is exhausting is listening to leftist political figures — especially lavishly rich and powerful ones like Obama — paint themselves as “victims” as they divide Americans along racial lines and then have the temerity to lecture Americans on the problem of racism. Is it any wonder Joe Biden says that if black people don’t vote for him, they “ain’t black”? That’s profoundly racist, and Michelle essentially expressed the same prejudice. When identity politics becomes the foundational methodology for one’s practice of politics, prejudice and division are the natural result.
