Michelle Obama and Fashion: A Complicated Conversation

There are 55 comments on the www.womanist-musings.com story from Nov 10, 2009, titled Michelle Obama and Fashion: A Complicated Conversation. In it, www.womanist-musings.com reports that:

This month Harpers Bizarre features the top ten outfits worn by Michelle Obama in the past year. In a world in which Black women are still not seen as beautiful, the elevation of Michelle has done much to reinforce a more feminine identity. Black women have always struggled to have our womanhood validated.

It is insulting to reduce Michelle Obama to the clothing that she wears and assume that this is elevation. It is insulting to sit there and compare her to Jackie O, as though the two women have even one single thing in common. Michelle may be the first lady but she comes to this position with the experience and life of an African American woman.

White people are quick to throw insults at all races-

but let's focus on the white race for a moment.

They (whites) are closer to animals than any other race.

1. They have LICE. Whites live in constant fear of small white creepy crawly bugs that are quick to take up residency in their hair on their scalps.

Lice have been found only on gorillas too. So whites have that common characteristic with actual gorillas, yet they taunt blacks as being animals.

Blacks, and all other races as well, are actually cleaner than whites.

2. When hot, white peoples skin give off a strange scent I've never smelled on any other race of people. They smell like raw meat or wet dog many people say privately.

This is true.

Plus, white peoples hair sticks to the forehead and neck like a wet dog as well.

3. White people are the LONE HUMAN RACE with absolutely NO PIGMENTATION of their skin and in many cases hair (blonde hair) and eyes (blue eyes)- these are albino traits.

And just like actual albinos whites Cant stand the sun for too long without getting sunburned so they are always reaching for suncream.

Blonde hair, blue eyes, pale white skin are all albino traits and white people are the only race on the planet with these unnatural and abnormal traits.

Whites are so cunning and clever that they have taken their unnatural and abnormal traits and promoted it as supposed beauty. It's not beautiful.

This lack of any pigmentation is so abnormal that whites are referred to as "Devils".

LAST, whites have no elasticity "at all" to their skin which is why after to much exposure to the sun and at a certain age their skin literally "cracks" like a porcelain doll which is why they were nicknamed "crackas".

Its a question of values rather than colour .Her looks and style just add to whats there naturally.
And I am not black !

I like his presidency btw.Trying to do good for Americans but Americans seem not to want healthcare or education.Seem to not want to share but he is on the right path.Stick with it.
