Michelle Obama wouldn’t have gotten into Princeton if she were white. She is one of those afirmative action types who get everything handed to them and always whine about being victims. She didn’t learn anything at Princeton so she had to write her senior thesis about the only thing she knows; complaining about being a victim of racism.

I think it is fine to be leery of Michelle Obama and her husband because of their liberal persuasion but it is foolish to assume that she didn't deserve to be at Princeton. Not all black affirmative action candidates are underqualified just as not all female affirmative action candidates are underqualified. IMHO she may have experienced a certain snobby, you're not a member of the club, type reaction from the white liberal elites at Princeton.

I don't believe that she got everything handed to her. I read a piece about her parents who were very hard working blue collar type people who believed in education and made their children's education a focus of their family life. It is possible to believe that there are racist people in America without hating the country, you know. IMHO stereotyping her as a certain type of black may not help us to determine who she really is and what her husband's candidacy means for our country.

Good summation.

She was there for COLOR. Apparently she never got over being black. Had she gotten over her skin color she wouldn’t be so bitter about being BLACK.
