Skip to comments.Michelle Obama walks into race row on Spanish holiday
Posted on 08/05/2010 8:50:23 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Michelle Obama and her youngest daughter, Sasha, seven, have arrived in Spain for a short holiday as US officials scrambled to defuse embarassing allegations of institutional racism against their host country.
Hours before the first African-American first lady of the US and her daughter were settling into the luxurious Villa Padierna hotel on the outskirts of Marbella, the US state department removed a warning about police racism in Spain from one of its websites.
"We have received isolated reports that racial prejudice may have contributed to the arrest or detention of some African-Americans travelling in Spain," the bureau of consular affairs had warned on its travel advice website.
"Recently, two African-American US government employees were questioned by police in Barcelona for no apparent reason. One was detained and suffered physical injuries in the process."(continued)

HEY SO CALLED AMERICAN MEDIA WHY D YOU NOT TALK ABOUT THIS IN MORE DETAIL?
We pay they vacation.
I get the feeling that if the US survives another 50 years, there is a good chance it will come out of it a Black nation much like South Africa - with similar problems and culture. Except the US would be Black Muslim.
But I don’t expect it to go down that way.
Sasha is age regressing? Who knew
As soon as she and her idiot hubby get kicked out of the White House, I shall once again, “be proud of my country”.
When they’re in jail, I’ll be “unbelievably proud of my country”.
Michelle - another “lefty” woman who’d be nothing without her hubby. Interesting - is it not - that it’s conservative women who do things on their own?
Laura Ingrahm says this pretend queen has 8 more of these vacations planned just in the next year. This B**ch is going to milk and take all she can get from being the 1st lady. This whole family is disgusting, they take and take. Nothing but a bunch of greedy scumbags sucking off the teat of taxpayers and reveling it. Judgement Day cant come soon enough.
With that itinerary they won’t be able to fire the WH travel staff. LOL.
I don’t see a 13% minority winning a civil war. South Africa is majority black, we aren’t ... not even close.
I thought the Spanish were indigenous to America until the nasty rednecks came along? [/sarcasm]
Thanks in part to the abortion their politicians are so fond of.
It's the "indigenous" Spaniards we have to worry about. Get 'em, Michelle!
If only we were allowed to question government employees here I'd ask where the BC and why didn't I at least get a t-shirt from all their vacations I've paid for.
Why don’t this woman visit Zimbabwe or South Africa? Damn strange she is always jetting off to Europe, damn craKKKa central that even her husband hates (see his race biopic).
I dont see a 13% minority winning a civil war. South Africa is majority black, we arent ... not even close.
Yup. Lenin, Hitler and Mao had majorities, and their movements included some competent and disciplined people.
The Fauxsheviks have none of these advantages.
As they say along the bayou, “that alligator mouth is gonna overload that mosquito ass”.
The social comfort level of some African-Americans is apparently more important than the physical safety of others.
Like father, like daughter. According to his website, Hussein was 52 two years ago.
I’ve just said the same on another thread, this is disgusting and this media is quiet, we have to get this info off the Uk media for the most part.
My family and I have not gone away for even a day for two years due to cut backs while we pay for them to have a vacation after a vacation and nothing from the media.
Right wing or left wing this is wrong and yet the left only have their selective outrage .They’re staying in a 60 room place, flew in on airforce two, trotting around like they’re the royal family and the American media just ignore this.
I am so pissed off and now you tell me there are more vacations, WTF
They’;ve done nothing but vacation since they’ve been in,
She knows in 2 years she gets kicked out of public housing and must give up her platinum EBT card.
According to Ingrahm, they have 70 secret service agents with them, which we pay for. She flew to Spain on Airforce 2 with 40 “of her closest friends”. Its nothing a but a big holiday for them. Supposedly the friends have to pay for there hotel expenses but the taxpayrs are picking up the tab for some 50% of her own expenses. Its an outrage and the media could care less.
Don’t throw away your vuvuzela.
“According to his website, Hussein was 52 two years ago.”
Also, according to his Facebook Page his favorite music is “Bach, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder and a couple other PC picks”
Yet when asked in public, he always says “I got Jay Z on my iPod”
The guy is pathological
Everyone is a racist except for Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and their best buddy Jeremiah Wright.
Did I perceive the facts correctly?
70 secret service, WOW.
This is an outrage and it doe snot matter who it is, This woman is always on vacation as is her husband.
They would not be able to do this if we had a fair free media but they know this American media will cover for them so they kick the ass out of their vacations and we PAY FOR IT.
I’m fuming, I have 3 kids and a wife, we have done massive cut backs not gone away for even a day in the last two years so we do not go into debt.
We have not even eaten out for over a year and a half or even got take out.
My kids go without, we go without and then I have to hear these far left turds saying they are for the average family.
Like crap are they.
We watch our money and worry over bills and this chewbacca takes her friends and family over to Spain and on vacation at least once a month
It’s a frigging outrage and if Bush had done this the media would go mad as would the left wing and rightly so but because it is their messiah they ignore it.
This is why we are different.
We would be mad if Laura Bush was like this and never did anything but the left ignores their wars, their spending, their corruption, their vacations paid by us.
I am so pissed off
“I dont see a 13% minority winning a civil war. South Africa is majority black, we arent ... not even close.”
All you need is a black president, a black attorney general and a bunch of self loathing white liberals and it can happen.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Is African American something to be proud of?? They need to work on the American Thing a hell of a lot more.
Well she should love it because she is one of the biggest celebrity racists in America.
At least that will not happen in Mississippi.
I’m thinking big liberal cities, mainly. Especially as police forces lose funding. Think Detroit and Chicago. But, like I said, I doubt it would go down that way. It just “could”.
Some interesting stuff from Fred from about a decade ago on this subject:
but wait..there’s more!
They are still going to vacation at the Gulf of Mexico (FL beach) and then to Martha;s Vineyard for 10 days...this month! There goes the price of lobster!
So is her Dad: he knocked off four years from his supposed
Thanks for the links... I’ll read them tonight!
Interesting, isn’t it? Both girls have had 2 b’days while in the WH and ages haven’t changed.
“This is an outrage and it doe snot matter who it is, This woman is always on vacation as is her husband.”
I think “doe snot” is a good nickname. ;-)
AND DON’T FORGET THAT THE HISPANIC VOTERS ARE BEGINNING TO BACK AWAY FROM HIM AND ALL HIS EMPTY PROMISES THAT THEY BOUGHT INTO. WE’LL SEE WHOSE SIDE THEY ARE ON IN THE LONG TERM.
Or “hummingbird butt”, as my Step-Dad puts it! ;^)
He grew up in S. Carolina!
Racialism trails behind this bunch of thugs like the stench behind a full garbage truck.
They USED TO SAY in South Carolina, “Don’t let your Mockin’bird mouth overload your Hummin’bird ass.” All those good old boy verses seem to have disappeared lately.
