Dear White People, Stop Calling Michelle Obama a Monkey

Mar 8, 2010 Full story: www.womanist-musings.com 2,152

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.

To all you haters: you wish you could be in her shoes. Call her what you please, if that makes you fell superior. She is too smart and too educated to let any name calling belittle her. Continue to carry on generations of hatred towards others because if not Michelle, I can only assume your own mothers and fathers that have given you life and instilled the ugliness of mixed messages that you tend to believe. A monkey is hairy all over, loves the wilderness, enjoys peanut butter and banana sandwiches as well as rant and rave about nothing. The behavior of the monkey is the same as the white people calling the kettle black. Get a life. She's still more intelligent that most of you monkeys!

That's why I have loyalty to myself because I have seen how society has progressed & regressed. I've seen segregation & so called integration. I have been studying American, World, African & African American history all of my life. One day people in American will become weary of being slaves of the Industrial Complex machinery. Until then, unfortunately, the same will continue. But, we must not give up, our work toward not being a part of the goal will happen one day.

Wow how arrogant you to assume that I don't know where I'm from or who my family is??? I know where I come from, I AM 100% A FULANI FROM GUINEA BISSAU & NIGERIA. I, also, am related to all Fulani in Mali, Guinea, Cameroon, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Chad, and Niger. I know everything about my family in so called America & Africa my whole lineage & family history. As well as, of the slaveholders & their origins in Scotland & Ireland. I know what plantation my people were on its exact location? I have oral, historical and personal family authentic antique heirloom documents which gives me the authority to claim such to where my family is.
I also know about a plantation in Jamaica. One shouldn't be so facetious.
I also know about the Native Indians of that area, & what their experience is & was.
My Elders (AS)had a old family African proverb: If one does not want people to know how stupid & foolish you are do not assume ANYTHING! Why? Because, it will make an ASS out of you.
Now run & tell that. I have only given you a synopsis because there are too much details which can be expounded upon. Let this be a lesson to you....Don't make assume ANYTHING .... its not a good look.:}
I grew up with 3 Great Grandparents and most of their siblings (AS). Their Parents & Grand Parents were enslaved, so, I have a plethora of resources available to me.

Everyone has the right to their own opinion. For some, they lack the ability to show their mastery of the English language.

So these individuals, retreat to vulgar words and insults phrases.

I must agree that 'Our First Lady', is a exceptional woman of looks, when she is smiling.

But,when the camera catches her off guard, she does look a lot les appealing !

So, why dont we all take a picture, one minute after waking up in the morning...

Your butt will look more like an ape than a human...

We don't "all take a picture, one minute after waking up in the morning" because we're not all the First Lady.

Her position affords her the scrutiny, good or bad.

I seriously doubt she cares how America sees her. After all, she's just recently proud of us.

Fine Americans, I can call anyone whatever I want to. Anyway calling someone racist is a subjective opinion. I'm subjective and I'm calling a the cards as I see them. Why don't you call yourself those name because it does bounce back to you because you have no facts to discredit what I have stated and I mean scholarly & scientific proof that discredits my statements. If you got it come on with it, I'm ready for it. Let's do this.
I find from the above that you are ready to fight with someone...why?
Everyone is entitled, as you say, to their own opinion....and this is considered to be a privilege given to Americans by the way of the first amendment....

I for one am not looking for a fight with you, cause you are entitled to say what you wish but don't get upset when others express their opinion...that is the AMERICAN WAY.

I certainly don't care about the obamas, but not because their black but because they are incompetent commies and are destroying my country where I was born and raised.....I am a Republican and I like many of the GOP candidates for President for 2012...M. Bachman, Chris Perry, Herman Cain....and others but I have not yet decided whom to vote for...but it won't be obama.

your acciamations and your trash and lie on
others depending on their political standings,
its very hard if not impossible to have to belive
what you say and do. So you want "it" stopped
when its Mrs Obama, you will just have to eat it,
'cause its your turn to pay what you have said and
done...Sorry, either change and bring fairness into
you posting, be responsible and grow up..
Whats the likelyhood of that???None!!!
Same thing goes for Obama, tell us what a great
President he is.....You have a problem, you won't
listen or see what he doing, your still in love
whith his smile?????????? Better get you
sh1! together and grow up.
Never happen, you are bred from a generation that
enjoyes ruining reputations with lies and evil
put downs....Where or are you one of those bullies
who terrorized your class mates? Its true about
the old saying, "you get what you deserve"!
I have no respect for those kind of people or
would I ever believe what you say....

A female ape has escaped from the DC zoo. She answers to the name "michelle" and she wears a dress.

If you see her, do NOT approach her or feed her. She will bite you. Instead, call the zoo or Obuma, her husband, who is touring the nation in a foreign made bus.

Thank you.
