Michelle Obama is no Angry Black Woman…she is simply telling the truth

We are all a product of our experiences and we often share it with the people in our circle. When you are the First Lady your circle is much bigger. Mrs. Obama is coming under fire from the right for sharing her experiences with racism. She was speaking to a majority black audience who identified with her narrative. She was passionate as she shared her life story, but that passion is being misidentified as anger. This is so familiar to so many of us. too often when a black woman shows passion she is called angry or intimidating, but when her white counterpart reacts the same way she is showing passion and confidence. The Obamas are nearing the end of their tenure in the White House and they are feeling a new sense of freedom. They are now speaking frankly about race the third rail. The movie A Few Good Men had a line I am going to paraphrase some on the right simply can’t handle the truth.

    I didn’t hear the speech, but if she did express anger, what’s wrong with being angry about racism? I’ll have to check it out. I’m obviously missing something here.
