Michelle Obama took the stage Saturday at Alabama’s Tuskegee University where she gave the commencement address to the graduating class and fueled the fires of racial division with comments like this:
“The road ahead is not going to be easy. It never is, especially for folks like you and me,” she said. “Because while we’ve come so far, the truth is those age-old problems are stubborn, and they haven’t fully gone away.”
She also said that she and President Obama were victims of discrimination themselves, and cited the situations in Ferguson and Baltimore as she pandered to the audience.
She went on to say that black people have a “Fear that your job application will be overlooked because of the way your name sounds. The agony of sending your kids to schools that may no longer be separate but are far from equal. The realization that no matter how far you rise in life, how hard you work to be a good person, a good parent, a good citizen — for some folks it will never be enough.”
Where is the outrage over these racial comments. Am I the only white person that was offended by her insinuation that I, and other whites see only the color of someone’s skin? I can only imagine how the white students felt listing to this speech.
