Former first lady Michelle Obama, made an outlandish claim during an episode of her podcast titled, “The Gift Of Girlfriends,” arguing that white people either don’t acknowledge black people exist, or they see them as a threat.
The former first-lady – who seems to have forgotten that her Black husband was elected as president by an American population that is a comprised mostly of Whites claims that all whites are racist because a woman skipped her in line at an ice cream shop – seriously.
“Denielle and I, when the girls were little, this is when I was First Lady,” Obama continued. “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. It was Haagen-Daaz, wasn’t it?”
Guest Denielle Pemberton-Heard, the CEO of STEMconnector said, “Exactly. Haagen-Daaz.”
Obama: “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, ’cause I know Danielle is like, ‘Well, I’m not gonna cause a scene with Michelle Obama.’”
Pemberton: “That’s exactly right; it was like, mm-hm.”
Obama concluded, “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 when I’ve been completely incognito, during the eight years in the White House, walking the dogs on the canal, people will come up and pet my dogs but will not look me in the eye. They don’t know it’s me. 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.”
Prior to those comments, Obama discussed with her guests another incident in Central Park, Manhattan where white woman was walking her dogs and called the cops on a black man, Christian Cooper, who was birdwatching.
Michelle Obama, in her memoir “Becoming,” stated, “That incident in Central Park, which infuriated all of us, as we watched it, it was not unfamiliar. This is what the white community doesn’t understand about being a person of color in this nation, is that there are daily slights — in our workplaces, where people talk over you, or people don’t even see you.”
Mrs. Obama who gave a speech during the Democratic National Convention, claims to hate politics, but her constant divisive and narrow sighted messages are entirely in line with the political strategy of the left.
Their constant attempts to divide the American public are quite frankly – played out – and the American public is quickly becoming aware of that.
