Good Morning America ad, "Michelle Obama will only talk to Robin Roberts"
ABC television network | 8/3/08

Posted on 08/03/2008 8:09:58 AM PDT by DallasBiff

While watching ABC This Week, ABC ran a Good Morning America television commercial with the tagline of Michelle Obamab will only talk to Robin Roberts, who happens to be a fellow African-American woman.


TOPICS: Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: 2008; 94to1; abcnews; auntesther; blackracist; elections; gma; goodmorningamerica; michelleobama; obama; racism; racist; racistobama; robinroberts; separatists; television
It seems that Michelle Obama will only talk to African-American journalists. I guess people like Laura Ingraham and even people like Barbara Walters and Katie Couric are not allowed to talk to Michelle Obama, because they are of the wrong skin color.

That's what I get from the Good Morning America commercial.

Can Roberts then call Michelle Obama “nigga” and “ho”? Oprah told us on the view black people can use it as an “endearment”.

If you are black and only talk to black journalist and only vote for black candidates then you are not racist, but if you are white and only want to talk to white journalist and only vote for white candidates then you are the worse kind of racist.

No double standard there!

thanks for clarifying that. I am just a “typical white person” who was invovled in civil rights for my black brothers and sisters...oh, guess, they hate me now too. Probably I just didn’t do enough, or get them reparations.

We were just disposable items, like razor blades and condoms.

Use once, discard.

Maybe people will see what will happen if Obama gets elected. The Obama’s will only allow press passes to black journalists.

I remember when Robin Roberts used to pitch for the Phillies. Or was it the Pirates? Anyway, he seems to have changed a lot.

I have no idea who wrote the copy for the ad. Usually networks will say "exclusive" interview, but this ad was very blatant in saying that Michelle Obama would only talk to Robin Roberts.

The ad had very overt racial overtones, IMO.

Tolerance. All those studies, speeches and policy efforts down the tubes.

So much for diversity.

If I were anyone giving an interview at all...I wouldn’t pick any of the people that are NORMALLY EXPECTED to get the interview. I would choose a lesser known someone from a local station. Someone who is really interested in my story...not the people on TV now who... like hilllereee think they are ENTITLED.

Racism Theorem 0:

Only whites can be guilty of racism. If others appear to be racist, it's because of white racism; the others are not really racist.

Nah, sweet Michele can't be a RACIST?

Can she?

Why she's so hip and quick with jazzy come back answers. How can it be? (LOL)

YOU must be one of those nasty white boys.

Only seeing how people interact by color.

You should feel GUILTY about how you view the world. Never mind that Michele is coming our against racism.

Don’t tak eme seriously. I do have trouble with LIBERAL logic and constant DOUBLE STANDARDS. I call it pretzel logic. You’re just fine - and see things for what they are - just kidding with you.

He pitched most of his career with the Phillies, finished with the Houston Colt 45s (before being renamed the Astros.) I never figured him for an Obama supporter. :)

Wrong Robin Roberts. That Robin Roberts played hardball.

This one promises to play softball.

Michelle Obama will only be interviewed by an ESPN sideline reporter.

No need to apologize I know sarcasm when I see it, although on occasion I have been known to jump into something a little to quick!

Wouldn't that be a slap in the face to the NYslimes and their buddies. It would almost be worth electing BHO to see that happen, of course it won't, Obama knows which side of the bread his butter is on. I will do everything I can to make sure this a**hat of a human being is not elected. I am 66 years old and I have a black girlfriend(well not really a girl, a delightful woman, but still I see the inner girl) whom I am considering marrying, she can't stand Obama either, I guess that makes her a typical white person(she likes guns too!)

I don’t want her or her “husband” any where near the White House, either. Not even as tourists.

Wow! I am shocked! To think I was a “uselful idiot”! I always thought that was “other people”.

Thank God I woke up in time or I would be hugging Michelle now in a photo op.

the sad reality is that Obama is right in his comments.

We DO still have white and black people who see each other a certain way based on color of skin. However, that is contributed most strongly to by Jesse, Al sharpton and the rappers and blacks like Michelle who will not let us move further ahead in defeating racism.

If Obama’s grandma was scaired back then, she would be running across the street today...and depending on the neighborhood, she might have a reason to.

I'm a recovering Ex-Hippie, also.

Really.

I know, they say, "Anyone who says they remember the '60's wasn't there." But I do, and was.
