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
