Skip to comments.African American women see their own challenges mirrored in Michelle Obama’s
Posted on 01/24/2012 7:59:18 AM PST by NCjim
As black women watch Michelle Obama on the national stage, they search sometimes nervously for nuances often lost on the larger culture. How she handles criticism, how she raises her children, even her style of dress, has the potential to counter negative stereotypes.
She is mainstreaming to the world what a lot of us already know about ourselves, says Dacenta Grice, a 37-year-old black woman who works as a physician assistant in Atlanta. She reinforces the reality that so many of us live. She is a black woman who just seems fantastic in her own right, who just seems like every day people and is relatable.

Yes, it's quite challenging when you have to decide to leave 3 hours before your husband for your 2 week vacation on Martha's Vineyard.
Get a $300k/year job doing something for which you’re completely unqualified - just because you decided to boink a dork who’s faked literally everything in his sorry life?
Give me a break.
Liberals, you’re thankfully keeping your long tradition of beclowning yourselves.
Journalism - for when you absolutely, positively cannot do anything useful in life.
Mirroring their challenges? You mean they all got a gigantic arse and a pansy for a husband?
And that just about sums it up re Mooooo
It must be tough to get plugged into a $160K/year job, with no particular job qualifications or responsiblities and then have it DOUBLED to $320K/year, for no particular reason.
This job was SO IMPORTANT that they didn’t replace her when she left.
If it were to be investigated, it would be clear there was no work product and the “salary” was simply campaign funding.
It’s hard to have those welfare check stretch to buy those 20,000 outfits.
It is a challenge.
Black women’s biggest problem is how to cope with the point that black men like white women more.
Whether through her own intelligence (unlikely) or through the advice of advisors and fashion-stylists, M.O. has changed her public image from the initial frumpy, entitled, Leftist and aggrieved-minority, we saw in 2007-2008.
Sadly, we all had to participate in her maturation process.
It just shows how utterly inexperienced the Obama’s were in 2008.
Yes, most A-A women spend their time deciding between waygu or kobe, Marxist Vineyard or Maui, Spain or the Motherland (Africa), Gucci or Prada...
The Compost really outdoes itself sometimes...
Not going to lose any sleep over the challenges black folks have in life. I’ve got my own.
Having tons of money but still you have lumpy visable panty lines?
So Big Media expects Republicans and Indies to vote for Hussein BECAUSE OF HIS WIFE?!
Right. She now comes across as a fat, clumsy, entitled, leftist and aggrieved-minority.
She's a pig wearing lipstick.
Or how a self-centered sociopath can be a social activist for Urban Moron culture and stick it to whitey while making good money.
She is mainstreaming to the world what a lot of us already know about ourselves, says Dacenta Grice, a 37-year-old black woman who works as a physician assistant in Atlanta. She reinforces the reality that so many of us live...I'm trying to get my mind around the meaning of these two sentences.
Near as I can tell, what we're getting here is that a black woman can actually snatch for herself a tiny measure of happiness if she can get herself married to the President of the United States and take multi-million dollar vacations two or three times a year. There'll still be a ginormous chip on that shoulder, but a couple of White House ushers can be assigned to carry it around for her.
I’m stealing that.
Its a real challenge.
Spoon fed with affirmative action cradle to the grave self righteous marxism, heaped high with anti-American theology and coddled by brain dead ladder climbing sycophants. Yeah, I’m sure they can relate.. and thanks mostly to the welfare state and democrat propaganda.
" Help lift us up, help us fight this fight to change transform this country in a fundamental way.
This chance wont come around again."
What - the challenge of figuring out what wine goes best with $100 a pound wagyu beef?
Dies this include those white African American women or just black women who for the most part call themselves AA but have no clue even what country their ancestors came from hundreds of years ago.
Talk to a liberal and point out that white people are African too and they look dumbfounded and I’ve even had a couple state to me that white people are not African or they don’t come from Africa.
The MSM and the left are complete idiots with their PC crap and their bias towards their messiah.
What challenge is that?... Being married to a guy on the “down low”?
T-Bird what’s the price 30 twice!
If Michelle Obama is your role model you are in deep do do!
challenges like her taxpayer trip to fancy Spanish hotels?
Haters - Hatin’ on Hatin’ America
Lol when I read the title I thought this needed to come with a bucket or barf-bag alert
How can most black women relate to vacations at the Taj Mahal or Hawaiian resorts? How can they relate to wearing jewelry in the 10’s of thousands of dollars? Or parties with Johnny Depp and Wookies?
That arrogant, elitist has had no “challenges”. She has been handed everything for doing nothing and then not even appreciated it. “For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country”, flying around the world with the mom, kids and friends in a private jet, a high-paying worthless job in Illinois with no responsibility,....
>> As black women bla bla bla bla BLABBITY bla
Race race race race race race race race race race
It’s all about RACE with this bunch. 24 by 7, 365 days per year. Except leap years when it’s all about race 366 days.
Race race race race race race race race race race
Proof that idiots do come in pairs.
Where you cop? Beauty shop!
What's the price? Cut it twice!
You forgot the “Hurl till you collapse a lung” alert!
So, they are fantasizing that the street cheap wookie makes black women look good? LOL. She can’t even make a $2000.00 dress look good.
Just change the name and date and yet another Affirmative Action post-turtle graduates with honors.
Then we’re going to have a lot of angry mad black women.
Here at FR, we aim to please !
