To say that the language coming out of the Donald Trump campaign this election season has been obscene, racist, and sexist is an understatement. It has reached every depth of disgusting that political language could possibly reach (*cough* “p-ssy grab” *cough*). Even Trump’s surrogates have taken up the language of their leader.
Carl Paladino, President-elect Trump’s New York co-chair and ex-Republican candidate for NY Governor, recently suggested Michelle Obama was actually a man who should live in Africa with gorillas and that he would like President Obama to die of mad cow disease after Valerie Jarrett dies of decapitation.
I’m not making this up.
In less than a month, the Obama family will be out of the White House and moving on to the next chapters of their lives. While many of will surely miss the presence of President Obama, some of us will miss the First Lady even more.
Last night, Michelle Obama sat down for an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey about her time as First Lady, the future of the White House and even if she’d consider going into politics herself, according to USA Today.
The former director of a West Virginia non-profit organization was removed from her position after she made a Facebook post calling First Lady Michelle Obama an “ape in heels.” This was one of countless racist incidents that followed President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in November.
It appears that the move to remove Pamela Ramsey Taylor from her position as director of the Clay County Development Corp. was only temporary, as it’s been announced she’ll be reinstated on Dec. 23.
Local politicians continue to think it’s okay to be publicly racist. Even when it comes to the First Lady.
The director of a nonprofit and the mayor of a small town in West Virginia have come under fire after a racist comment about First Lady Michelle Obama became public knowledge.
This week, First Lady Michelle Obama gave a stirring speech in response to Republican nominee for president Donald Trump’s lewd comments about sexual assault. It was pretty epic.
Last week, a 2005 Access Hollywood tape was released by The Washington Post, where Trump claims that women will let you do anything you want to them if you’re a star, including grab them by the genitals. While campaigning for Clinton in New Hampshire, Mrs. Obama was visibly shaken while discussing Trump’s words.
As the Obamas wave us all goodbye as they prepare to leave the White House, we’re getting even more intimate looks into the past eight years of their lives. Most recently, Barack and Michelle have been revealed to be on the cover of October’s issue of Essence Magazine.
The first couple took the opportunity to speak on their legacy and the impact they’ve made on America, especially its youth.
The new film Southside with You, starring Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers is a sweet tale of black love. The film unfolds the now almost mythical story of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s first date on Chicago’s south side. While, like Obama’s presidency, the film has its missteps and awkward moments, audiences everywhere will find this movie very delightful and very black.
The Democratic National Convention (DNC) kicked off in Philadelphia yesterday, and although Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee, black women were front and center.
From the convention chair, Representative Marcia Fudge to Georgia House Representative Stacey Abrams to the incomparable Michelle Obama, it is clear that black women are the backbone of the Democratic Party and will be an essential component of progressing the party into the future, should they choose to do so.
