Michelle Obama:Back when our great-grandparents were riding that Underground Railroad
Written on September 24, 2012 at 9:12 am by FPP
Now, back when our great-grandparents were riding that Underground Railroad, back when John Lewis was marching across that bridge in Selma, and Jim Clyburn was sitting in an Orangeburg jail, the injustices we faced were written in big, bold letters on the face of our laws. And while we may have had our differences over strategy, the battles we needed to fight were very clear.

‘Riding’ the underground railroad...really?
I shur wish I wuz as smart as the edumacated elites.
so is she saying they were the good old days and she wants them back ?
Sounds like a campaign leaving the rails. Must be getting material from the V.P.
She must think the “underground railroad” was some sort of subway or something.
Would this be a high speed, zero emissions, green job producing underground railroad?
If Obama had the election won he wouldn’t be resorting to this, this tells me they are scared to death that they are going to lose. They must have those internal polls which show many blacks will stay home
Back when our great-grandparents were riding that Underground Railroad
Obama’s great-grandparents were the slave owners chasing Michele’s great-grandparents.
Funny, underground railroad taking slaves to freedom, while Obama’s great gran pappy was selling slaves!
Well, that’s what I thought. When I was about six years old, that is.
obama’s great grandparents weren’t “riding” an under ground railroad. There wasn’t one in Kenya.
And neither were most of the people she’s talking to. At 25 years per generation their great-great-great grandparents may have been riding it. Her great grandparents were probably born in the early 1900s.
Guess her Grandparents were from NY and rode the subway.
Hey, Mochelle—get over it! Time to move on. You are now the wife of the president of the US of A. Ain’t that enough for you?
And mine were provby iding shelter, and food for those travelling the Undereground Railroad.
She is the dumbest box of rocks, they must have made jokes about her back in the early 2000’s when she showed up for meetings at her hospital admin patronage gig. She is “Chicken of the Sea” Jessica Simpson stupid.
Seriously, why doesn’t some enterprising reporter ask her some questions about the underground railroad...track spacing, type of locomotive, etc.
She is supposedly a smart woman...and she thinks there were cho cho trains to ‘ride’.
Or in Mooch’s case:
Dogs and firehoses at the bridge in Selma - provided by Democrats.
Orangeburg jail - probably operated by Democrats.
Presidential proclamation ending slavery - provided by a Republican.
"separate but equal" - implemented by Democrats.
Restricted access to ballot box - implemented by Democrats.
Revisionist history - propagated by the Ministry of Truth.
Lots of white folks took great risks to make that Underground Railroad a possibility.
And our grandparents were playing conductor!
Girl, lemme just tell you how I struggled!
You are now the wife of the president of the US of A. Aint that enough for you?
Not if she hates America and whitey. BTW, I was listening to a program on local history and free men of color owned a lot of plantations along the Mississippi River and owned slaves as well. So, the slave thing is not necessarily a black on white thing it is also a black on black thing. And, who do you think brought those slaves to America from their beloved Africa and sold them to the slave owners?
Michelle’s oldest grandparent was born in 1909. The civil war ended in 1865.
Unlikely that any of her great-grandparents were ever slaves. Great-great-grandparents, probably. Great-grandparents, probably not.
Her great-great-grandparents and great-grandparents were probably Republicans and huge fans of Abraham Lincoln.
Everything the dear leader says is from the Ministry of Truth!
And they approved this message.
What does Michelle know about the underground railroad. The only train she knows is the gravy train with that $300,000 patronage job in Chicago before she left for the White House.
My father and I used to ride the underground railroad to Yankee stadium.
Underground Railroad, chains, lynching, discrimination, racists, ......blah, blah, blah. I don’t know how others feel, but I have had this crap shoved down my throat for four years and am over it. If one wasn’t a racist before Obama, they are close to being one now.
Michelle’s great grandfather was a slave owner.
The final stage of defeat is the race card. If I recall it didn’t work out for Al Gore.
Umm, walking? Barefooted? K, Michelle?
My great-grandparents were riding Ford Model A's. Just how old is she?
She’s had everything in the world handed to her and never knew one day of deprivation and still she’s spouting off.
She thinks blacks had a secret subway system and who is “our”? Because Barack’s great grand parents did not live this in country
First, as we all know, the Underground Railroad has NOTHING to do with Barak H. Obama, as his ‘Black’ half is Kenyan. About Michelle, I don’t know, but she is not the one running for office, is she!? Second, most all of the ‘Conductors’ on the Underground Railroad were WHITE as were almost all of the Union Soldiers who won the US Civil War.
These people smell bad things and they are pulling out all stops to get their base voters fired-up to go out and vote. I don’t mind so long as it is only once, but of course that makes me a racist!
Hillary was at the end of the line to greet the escaping black folk:
Perpetuating the nightmares of slavery to promote the chains of Communism.
AND IT WAS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT BUILT THAT RAILROAD AND FOUGHT OFF THE DEMOCRAT KKK FOR 100 YEARS UNTIL THEY COULD FINALLY GET ENOUGH NORTHERN DEMS TO VOTE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS.
Most of the slaves walked...
Now was that fair when they could have been Hitchin a Ride with Michelle’s family ???
I wonder who was pushing?
I believe she struggled in the past. Or she wouldn’t be struggling now.
