Former First Lady Michelle Obama has made a slew of controversial comments in recent months.
In a recent episode of her “Michelle Obama Podcast,” she claimed that she and former President Barack Obama could not have “gotten away” with “some of the stuff” going on in the Trump administration because the black community wouldn’t have let her.
“When we were in the White House, we could’ve never gotten away with some of the stuff that’s going on now, not because of the public, but our community wouldn’t have accepted that. You worked. You did your best every day. You showed up,” Obama said.
Obama, who appeared on the podcast with her mother and brother, discussed growing up in Chicago, where “being black” was “a crime in and of itself.”
“When you leave the safety of your home and go out into the street, where being black is a crime in and of itself, we have all had to learn how to operate outside of our homes with a level of caution and fear because you never know,” she said.
The former first lady spoke with her brother, Craig Robinson, about an incident when he was roughly 10 years old.
Robinson was riding his bike down the street, and a police officer allegedly stopped him and accused him of stealing the bike.
Robinson described the encounter as “terrifying” and said it left him “heartbroken” because he had been raised to believe the police were his “friends.”
Race was a theme throughout the discussion, and at one point, Obama claimed “almost everybody” she knows was involved in an “incident where they were just minding their own business but living black and got accused of something.”
She added that black children from a young age are taught they have to exceed the expectations of white people.
“You’re taught, you know, people are going to assume the worst of you. So, you’ve got to be better than, you’ve got to be 10 times better than,” Obama said.
This is a reoccurring topic for Obama.
Late last month, she went on a racist rant against white people who, she said, treat her and other black women as if they are invisible.
“When I’ve been completely incognito, during the eight years in the White House, walking the dogs on the canal, people will come up and pet my dogs, but will not look me in the eye. They don’t know it’s me,” she said during her show.
“What white folks don’t understand, it’s like that is so telling of how white America views people who are not like them. You know, we don’t exist. And when we do exist, we exist as a threat. And that, that’s exhausting,” the former first lady said.
“What the white community doesn’t understand about being a person of color in this nation is that there are daily slights, in our workplaces where people talk over you, or people don’t even see you,” she said.
Quite ironic that Michelle Obama, who became the first lady of the United States, continues to act like a victim while claiming her race has somehow held her back.
She was the most powerful woman in the world for eight years as the first lady. That’s not being oppressed.
