At some point between when it became obvious that Michelle Obama would be First Lady of the United States and the day she walked into the White House with the title, a committee of racist douchebags convened in conservative circles to come up with a narrative about her to make her 40 times more unappealing to the right than the typical Democrat.
They invented an entire platform of “reverse racism” and accused the Obamas of hatred not just for white people but for America itself, suggesting that Mrs. Obama’s black heritage had turned her into a white-hating “race-baiter” who travels the country speaking of the evils whites have inflicted on blacks through the years. In between taking lavish vacations on the taxpayer dime and hating whitey, the first lady also has the time to personally stop at every elementary school in America to make sure what they’re eating for lunch is disgusting while she grabs a burger and fries from McDonalds.
The conservative perception of this amazing woman couldn’t be further from reality and yet they push it, and have for going on eight years. What’s unfortunate is that in conservative circles, it doesn’t matter if something is true or not. The only thing that matters is how much you say it. The ridiculous hatred for Michelle Obama, for no reason other than the uneducated bigots of the Republican base can’t get over the color of her skin, manifests itself in such stupid ways it boggles the mind.
In this example, a young man serving his country wrote an open letter to Michelle Obama, addressing the concerns the right has invented, making a fool of himself and disgracing the uniform all in one fell swoop”
It sickens me that I have to take time to write you this letter. I am a Marine who doesn’t recognize color because every color has lived and died for you. You live in a free country to blame your poor pathetic life on the color of another man’s skin. All colors have given their lives for an educated woman to have the freedom to be so ignorant. I don’t blame black people for the ignorance that comes from your mouth. I love all colors because I love all that God creates. I don’t have to like you to love you and today is no different. I don’t like you or your husband because of your character hidden behind your skin. Isn’t it funny how the truth always reveals itself in time. You and your husband never showed this side of yourselves in 2008 before he was elected.
You both live better than 99% of the people in this world because of this country. You said that you are for the first time proud to be an American. Well, I will tell you that most of us are ashamed of you. You and your husband have become millionaires off the people of this country, but demonstrate very little appreciation for all that we give.White, black, brown or indifferent millions have fought and died for you to have the freedom to say the ignorant things you say. You are educated, but clearly have very little common sense. You blame past generations of Americans for the troubles of a few. Stop blaming white people for your misery and take a look at yourself in the mirror. We are all responsible for our own happiness and misery. The KKK is ignorance wrapped in a sheet while the Black panthers are raised on ignorance and hate.
No different from the cult of Islam thinking their race is better than all other men. God is love and creates every color to include our skin. To truly love God is to love all that He loves. For that I love each of you and pray that we all start taking responsibility for our own damned sins.
Martin Luther King had a dream that we would all live in the promise land. He is not remembered for being black. He is remembered for the love, and character he had within his heart. If you don’t like this country get on that plane and never come back. I will stay here and love all Americans, regardless of skin. I will love the beauty of what God created and stand tall with my American friends. Not because of their color but for the character and love they carry within. This country doesn’t owe you anymore than it owes me. So many have thanked me for my service and I will always be grateful. I pray that one day you and your husband might cause me to be grateful for yours. You will never be remembered as the First Lady of Color but soon forgotten after you leave the White House. You nor your husband shall ever divide us. I wish you no harm, but pray you will get the hell off of this American land… If you wish to find me I am now a writer for the DC Gazette. Also on Twitter @mshep08_mike …God bless you and Semper Fi
You can really just walk through it with a…”what the hell is this guy talking about?” The Obamas never acted like what before 2008? People who understand the plight of black people…because they ARE BLACK PEOPLE? And…are the Obamas now the appointed leaders of the Black Panthers? Wait…did he just call Islam a cult and then a race? It’s neither. My goodness, this guy is an idiot.
The reference to Dr. King was especially well-received. There’s nothing like someone who just disparaged the entire “race” of Islam giving you a lesson on racism. And the ending; oh the glorious ending. You shall NOT divide us as you have intended to all along, black people! You will soon learn that racism is alive and well in America! The whole thing is a ridiculous disgrace.
