Shittin on lives DAILY.
i don’t care if you don’t agree with obama’s politics, but michelle obama is a gorgeous woman who kicks ass.
Can we talk about how Michelle Obama, the First Lady life was threatened by her own police escort, yeah the ones that are supposed to protect her. Can we talk about how one of them threatened her life, and go put on administrative leave, no fired, not outted to the media, not killed, but put on administrative leave or duty. The Presidents wife, can we talk about that hm?
There is no position on this Earth that makes you immune to Anti-Blackness.
It has more to do with her being a woman, than black. You’d never here a police escort say such things about Obama, but his female wife, yea…it’s a real chuckle fest.
People have threatened to take President Obama’s life multiple times as well. You have no right to derail this conversation with attempts to divide her identity in a way that will enable you to implicate yourself as a victim. Her life was threatened and the man who showed her an image of the gun he’d kill her with has been protected by the media. Women do not all experience sexism in the same way or to the same degree. Michelle Obama is a Black woman. You cannot remove her race from her gender. She is Black at all times. She is a woman at all times.
