Skip to comments.Michelle Obama's racially skewed version of history

Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco and Michelle Obama left her common sense in 1954.
Addressing graduating high-school students the other day in the Topeka, Kansas, school district, the federal lunch lady said, referring to the Brown v. Board of Education decision, [Y]our experience here in Topeka would have been unimaginable back in 1954 . And perhaps this is true.
It also would have been unimaginable back in 1554 or 954. After all, the institutions making that experience possible hadnt been birthed yet.
You know, those institutions created by European/ European-descent civilization.
That civilization that Darth Vegan is tacitly impugning with her racial agitation.
The point is that if youre going to talk about the past, dont tendentiously cherry-pick it for destructive ideological purposes. Its much as discussion about slavery. Not only is the focus always on the less than one percent of the history of slavery that was written in the US (its one of the worlds oldest institutions), but the most significant point is missed: Whites were not the first to practice slavery.
But they were the first to abolish it.
If some take offense at this, they can pound sand. I take offense at the constant derision aimed at my civilization by critics who should get down on their knees, kiss the ground trod by our ancestors and thank God for our civilizations existence. Where else could effete neer do wells complain about injustice while living a life of silk, satin and Sidwell Friends and dining on Kobe beef?
Really, this all reminds me of how no good deed goes unpunished. This focus on a groups sins to the exclusion of its triumphs is much like trying to epitomize a cracker-jack golfer by some of his three-putts while ignoring his many championships...

Racists in the White House.
I have always made it a point to remind anyone that brings up slavery that Africans have been holding their fellow man in slavery for 14 centuries, and continue to do so today.
He has had a good life because he is a black man living in America, and I have had a good life because I am a white man living in America. In a sense I wish he were POTUS, for I could be proud of him--he earned his success.
as I will, that’s a great and true statement.
Racist Sasquatch BUMP!
Also known as New Left Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats and their ideological issue.
You [America] initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
Pointing out that it was caucasians who ended slavery and caucasians who decided Brown vs BofE and who spent millions of dollars desegregating schools, in between promos for homosexuality might have made the caucasian students more comfortable. Her rant had more the tone of a LaRaza rally.
