Reax: First Lady Michelle Obama Calls Out Racism And Celebrates Diversity In Kansas



Thought about this one for a bit and it seemed that the First Lady's recent MOSTLY RACIAL message for Topeka, Kansas high school seniors is also exceptionally relevant for our KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY . . .

Take a look . . .

New York Times: Michelle Obama Cites View of Growing Segregation

“Today, by some measures, our schools are as segregated as they were back when Dr. King gave his final speech,” Mrs. Obama told 1,200 graduating high school seniors Friday here in the city that gave rise to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case.

Politico: Michelle Obama: Talk about race

“This issue is so sensitive, it’s so complicated, so bound up with a painful history,” Obama told soon-to-be graduating high school seniors in Topeka, Kansas—the city that was at the center of the Supreme Court’s decision. “No matter what you do, the point is to never be afraid to talk about these issues, particularly the issue of race, because even today, we still struggle to do that.”

WaPo: In Kansas, first lady Michelle Obama urges graduating students to embrace diversity

In her evening address in Kansas, Michelle Obama urged young people to challenge racism when they encounter it and to do all they can to surround themselves with diversity.

“And that’s really my challenge to all of you today as you go forth — when you encounter folks who still hold the old prejudices because they’ve only been around folks like themselves, when you meet folks who think they know all the answers because they’ve never heard any other viewpoints, it’s up to you to help them see things differently,” she said.

She told students to “break through” barriers to talking honestly about race.

"Don't be afraid to talk about race" (as long as you use progressive/ white guilt talking points)

Comrade Michelle makes point about class struggle rather than race struggle. To achieve the goals of a Communist Utopia envisioned by her husband Comrade Barack, there must be struggle and since we cannot ferment one between economic classes the Party thought it was best to start one with race, since there is an economic component to race and thus, Comrade Barack was selected and he is doing a fine job in dividing America. He has done in just 6 years what the Party has been unable to do in 100 years in America. The black people are worse now under Comrade Barack than under any American president and there should be an uprising soon for Comrade Barack to institute martial law and begin the dictatorship of the proletariat. You see comrades, all the news is good. I have recommended both of the Comrades Obama for the Oder of Lenin First Class with psalms.

What do you expect her to say? If we were a post racial society, she, her husband, all the assholes with Reverend in front of their names like Jackson, Sharpton, Brooks and Cleaver would have to get real jobs. Racism is her rice bowl, it is her meal ticket. If we are such a racist country with no opportunity for Black people, who did Bill Cosby, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan and hundreds of entertainment and sports personalities become rich? The Obamas are the biggest race pimps.

The real problem in the US is POVERTY and the shrinking middle class due to a bad economy.

And the POTUS or executive branch can hardly take credit for Brown v BOE. That was a high point for the Judicial branch.

Schools are segregated because that's how people want them to be. It isn't just white people who don't get along with black people. Nobody does, including, especially, themselves. Black people don't want anybody else around either. They are the biggest racists of anybody.

Did Weezy go back to DC already? I thought it would have been cool to get her a high level hotel room on the Plaza tonight so she can see "her people" in action tonight.

I agree, until the late 60s and 70s predominently black schools WERE unequal to 'white' ones. Americans have bused and integrated, pouring a lot of resources into education for blacks to equalize it... but now it starts to appear that it's the urban culture that's unequal, not the schools.

What part of that... whether diet, music, lack of fathers in the home, discipline, chronic poverty, anger, lack of jobs and transportation to get TO them, or all of those things?

I'm not sure. But something happens to kids in that culture around puberty and a great many of them lose interest in skill building and even maintstream English language. This is not to say that white kids don't have similar problems at that time... there are plenty of white sk8terboys and dopers... but it seems not to be so widespread.

What's the experience with black children whose families escape the ghetto, or white children who live IN it?

I can't believe sociologists haven't spend a lot of work on this, and publicized it, unless to study it has been deemed politically incorrect.

I think Glazer nailed it the other day, they have chose their so called culture and to live separately.

1212, it seriously could be something like lead paint or heavy metals poisoning. That does cause unexplained aggression and lethargy.

Gots me a nine an I gonna use it said...

3:58 - Heavy metals would be the answer to part of the problem - It's lead poisoning from all the gang-bangers shooting up the cities.

We have seen 40 years of "DIVERSITY" and look what "DIVERSITY" has gotten us.

Our cities are over-run with black crime.

Whole cities are bankrupt and look like Beirut.

Education systems are bilking billions of dollars trying to educate gang banging hoodrats.

Blacks cry racism everytime they are told no, or they don't get the RESULT they want.

Black children are born fatherless at a rate of 80%.

When you come home from work at 3:00 in the afternoon and find your 14 year old white daughter on the couch with a 18 year old black, with a 12 inch cock, filling her full of hoodrat sperm, get back to me about your feelings about DIVERSITY.

Fuck a whole bunch of DIVERSITY. More like container ships, loaded with the black parasites, headed one way, back to Africa.

Then they can truly be African Americans.

All this racial bitching is a hoot. In the year 2250 they will be talking shit about how whitey let the Latinos take over and they lost their monthly checks. 84 percent of the kids born will be bastards who will never know their fathers and KC School district will still be formulating a strategic plan to do away with accreditation.
