Michelle Obama To White People, ‘Ya’ll Are Still Running’ From Black People

Michelle Obama, the wife of former President Obama, said it is her “life’s work” to help to remove the “scabs of discrimination.”

It is a noble cause and one that everyone should support, but her way of doing it is to continue to blame white people.

“As people doubted us coming through — ‘Are you Princeton material? Can you really make the grade?’ Can you cut it?’” she said.

“What do you do in those instances? All you can do is put your head down and do the work and let the work, your truth, speak for itself,” she said.

“I can’t make people not afraid of black people. I don’t know what’s going on. I can’t explain what’s happening in your head,” the former first lady said.

It is presumptuous to assume that every white person is afraid of black people, but she takes it further by saying white people run from black people.

“But maybe if I show up every day as a human, a good human, doing wonderful things, loving my family, loving our kids, taking care of things that I care about.

“Maybe, just maybe that work will pick away at the scabs of our discrimination. Maybe that will slowly unravel it.

“That’s all we have,” she said. “Because we can’t do it for them, because they’re broken. Their brokenness in how they see us is a reflection of this brokenness. And you can’t fix that. All you can do is the work.”

“Being the first black first family gave America and the world [the chance] to see the truth of who we are as black people, as others.

“That we are just as, and often times better than, many of the people who doubt us,” she said at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.

“As families like ours — upstanding families like ours who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better — as we moved in, white folks moved out because they were afraid of what our families represented,” she said.

“I want to remind white folks that y’all were running from us … This family, with all the values that you read about, you were running from us.

“And you’re still running because we’re no different than the immigrant families that are moving in,” she said, omitting the world “illegal.”

“The families that are coming from other places to try to do better. But, because we can so easily wash over who we really were — because of the color of our skin, because of the texture of our hair — that’s what divides countries, artificial things,” she said.

  1. Maybe people are becoming more segregated because every word white people say is somehow taken as racist.
    So called dog whistles even everyday hand gestures like the symbol we all used for OK and still as scuba divers use this symbol to sign OK now racist.

  2. Blacks move in, whites move out. Who wants to live around them, they just have lower standards in all areas and bring our quality of life down.

  3. …you got me Micheal, I do run from blacks, mostly because you are way to stupid an dangerous, not to mention you stink and are unintelligible, but mostly because you are criminal RACISTS…

  4. Blacks are more racist than any other group and that’s a FACT. I worked hard for what I bought, nothing was ever handed to me on a silver platter and all of my groceries were paid for with my own earnings–we didn’t get freebies from the State! Whites are not running from blacks, they are running from the horrid criminal events they commit as well as those events the whites commit. Where do some blacks get the notion that whites owe them a living and demand reparations? Far as I’m concerned, blacks owe the whites reparations for all the freebies they received over the years. If the blacks would quit believing they still lived on the plantations of the past century, they just might find life a little easier In this century. And by the way, there were more black plantation owners in the South than white plantation owners; blacks owned more slaves than their white counterparts and were much more brutal to their slaves than the white owners were. It’s all in the archives if you want to research the subject. And just so you know, the US hasn’t had slavery since 1865, but it’s a practice that is alive and well in some European countries and the middle east.

  5. MICHELLE OBAMA says that WHITE FOLKS keep RUNNING AWAY from BLACK FOLKS. MILLIONS of BLACK FOLKS living in dire poverty as ENTITLEMENT LIFESTYLERS, amongst a HOST of GANG BANGERS, THUG LIFERS, CAN’T READERS, DRUG DEALERS, PROSTITUTES, SECTION-EIGHTERS, FREE LUNCHERS, BUS TOKENERS and AFRICAN QUEENS in places like BROOKLYN, BATON ROUGE, MEMPHIS, LOS ANGELES, NEW ORLEANS, DETROIT, FLINT, ST LOUIS, SEATTLE, BALTIMORE, PHILLY and CLEVELAND: https://black-on-white-crime.blogspot.com/2014/01/white-grammar-school-girl-threatened-by.html — NAAWP says that none of theses STATEMENTS are meant to be RACIST, but all of these STATEMENTS are 100% TRUE in 2019.
