Michelle Obama: I Was Asked to Take Something Off a Shelf at Target! Doesn't Prove Racism, Only Proves Plain Women Don't Get Any Respect!
"The Obamas talked with People magazine about dealing with their "own racist experiences,` as the magazine described.
Michelle Obama told one story that recently took place, even as she was first lady of the United States.
`I tell this story ` I mean, even as the first lady " during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn`t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn`t anything new,` Michelle Obama, who is 5`11", said."
I would also have asked Michelle Obama`s help in taking something off a shelf, she`s taller than I am, and she`s stronger. I would have gladly extended her an opportunity to put those muscular arms, that she has a penchant for showing off, to good use.
Racism didn`t play any part in the Target shopper requesting Michelle Obama to retrieve merchandise from a shelf. The customer simply perceived her as a plain-looking strong woman who would be adept at performing a simple manual task.
If Michelle looked like Jacqueline Kennedy the shopper would have been too intimidated to inconvenience her, it ain`t about race, it`s about sex appeal or lack thereof!
The Obamas only succeed in making themselves look foolish when they attempt to prove they have suffered racism.
