Dear White People, Stop Calling Michelle Obama a Monkey

There are 2159 comments on the www.womanist-musings.com story from Mar 8, 2010, titled Dear White People, Stop Calling Michelle Obama a Monkey. In it, www.womanist-musings.com reports that:

Even before Mrs. Obama became the FLOTUS race based attacks were aimed at her from White conservatives. Walt Baker, the prominent CEO of the powerful Tennessee Hospitality Association, called Michelle Obama Cheetah the monkey from Tarzan in a supposed joke e-mail last Thursday.

Only in a white supremacist world could comparing a Black woman to a monkey be considered political humour. I understand that such an attack was used against George Bush; however, White men do not have a history of being called animals to reduce their value and humanity. Racism is what differentiates George Bush being called a monkey and Michelle Obama being called a monkey.

It's kind of funny that you say these ignorant things about a woman like Michelle Obama. You can agree or disagree with her politics, but she certainly deserves respect like every one deserves. Now, My name is Timothy and I'm black, so you must be another Timothy living in the same city that I am (or you're using a deceptive tactic like you racists always use). You certainly must know that people like you with your hateful rhetoric are dying off. People are waking up and more folks don't subscribe to misogynist, racist propaganda. Also, you aren't a representative of most people in Norfolk since most people in Norfolk are tolerant of all people.

Great post, thank you. I was confused with the Tims for Norfolk. Funny, many whites in the country will never, never understand racism, like this other tool Tim, even though he makes racist comments like Michelle Obama being a monkey; if he doesn't understand why this isn't racist he is very ignorant. To many whites making racist or ethnic remarks is always a joke no matter who it offends or how mean it is to people.

I agree, That name calling is Below the Belt. Ive been called a Racist but thats the Freedom of speech. Obviously So is calling one a Monkey etc,

I cant STAND Obama Nor his wife but Thats ME. I cant Stand Hilliary the same way.. Doesn't Matter WHAT color at these levels.

I still Believe in respect for the oval Offices and that is the bottom Line...

Fair Game is Nazi,Communist, Socialist, Etc but Know one is an animal in that sense. Oops Me Bad we are ALL different animals. So SHOOT away with freedom of speech but be considerate of the Positions of people in the Highest Offices in the Land. Going too far is disrespect for our country, That needs to be protected and respected at the fundamental levels..

I'm a White Guy therefore have been Rubber Stamped a Racist. Again freedom of speech no matter how abused it is.

I draw the Line to set MY Example.

" I understand that such an attack was used against George Bush; however, White men do not have a history of being called animals to reduce their value and humanity. "

There goes the lib/"progressive" double standard for blacks,

On the one hand the left claims that blacks are the equal of whites - except that to hear the same libs tell it blacks are still too fragile to be called monkey's just as the previous white president was.

Yea you are very right! I don't belive in racist or ethnic remarks myself. You know like Cracka, Red Neck, Peckerwood, Trailer Trash just to name a few. Shut the hell you FAT SLOB! You make a statement like this trying to make it out like you are Mr perfect and all you are is a bigot and a closet racist, so go Fu8k yourself.

Nothing wrong with not liking Obama and his wife Michelle and calling them unAmerican and socialist, ect. But you know damn well comparing Black people to monkeys IS racist; you are lying or ignorant if you don't realize that. And there isn't such a thing as 100% percent freedom of speech. Can I stand at a corner and shout at people walking past me?? I can but I will be removed after a short period of time by the police or some concern citizens.

No more so than comparing whites to a monkey.

Blacks are all grown up now and fully equal.

No more training wheels for them.

Okay....I must interject with this dancing around the issue...and lay some cards on the table....

*No one with any humility or dignity would stoop so low as to compare another human being to an animal...unless it reflected their BEHAVIOR...and an analogy was being attempted based on that behavior. To use nothing other than physical appearance and an innate "dislike" for a person to justify comparing them to an animal is to be childish, irresponsible and reprehensible. Period.

*Now, having said that...I must also throw in the fact that both Obama's...Michelle and B.H. are acting reprehensibly, and irresponsibly, in relation to their (at least his) sworn duties to this country and her citizens. They are displaying un-American behaviors (refusing to honor our flag, our culture, our heritage), they are desperately scratching and clawing to get this very unsubstainable HC boondoggle passed against the wishes of most Americans, they have welcomed into the inner sanctuary of the Oval Office, all manner of anti-Americans, self-professed terrorists, self-professed Socialists, Maoists, sexual perverts and all manner of sleazy, slimey associations from Obama's Chicago thuggery days, and on and on ad nauseum.

Inherent with this behavior...blatant anti-Americanism, lying, back-tracking on promises, misrepresenting facts, acting against their own words and earlier committments, condoning every manner of immoral and unethical behaviors (bribery, collusion, secret negotiations, etc.), supporting immoral, unethical organizations, refusing to offer to the American public any information relating to their past, to their birth records, or to their education.....on and on...IS, after all, setting themselves up for and exposing themselves to the risk of such name-calling, and overt anger visited on them by American citizens.

It goes with the territory if you are not going to keep your nose clean.

Look at Obama. This dude with NO experience was pampered and grommed for this position from a long time ago.

The sharks at the top knew that if someone was half black they could get away with socialist and commie policy more because when the populace complained they could pull that ol' RACE CARD and say you are only a racist if you don't like the lacky stooge.

Is this the same with Michelle?

You are correct, Mac....These are the same people who would call a "White Miss America" contest racist....a "White Histories Month" racist....an NAAWP organization racist. Well....If by definition, they WOULD BE racist....then so ARE their "black" counterparts.....now.....I want to hear from some of the black posters here defending or dissing the point I just made.....it really is not "mine"....that question has been posed hundreds of times....I have never heard a reasonable answer though.

And don't give us "but whites have not been discriminated against"....that is just ludicrous and will not fly. PEOPLE of all categories...black, white, red, yellow, old, young, female, male, fat, bald, short, tall, handicapped, poor, disadvantaged, physically challenged, mentally challenged, PEOPLE......all.

So, let's hear the justifications. I am not condoning the discrimination of anyone based on some condition of their birth....that is naive and childish....and it's time to end it....but....that means as the poster above alluded to...."the training wheels must come off". You must make it, like we all ultimately do, on your own merit.
