A woman I go to church with, who is intelligent and kind, shared this on Facebook.
And it’s all I can do to not call her out for being a crazy racist terrible person.
People, man. They suck a lot.
ETA: I couldn’t help myself. This is a shitty thing to post. I commented, “Monica, not to start something… but this comes off as very racist and a little sexist. First off, facts: Laura Bush is reported to have about the same number of staffers, and many previous first ladies have had more. Her staff is pretty standard. Secondly, to take official or candid smiling shots of three white women and put them with one excited picture of a black woman just looks… racist. And the claim that women—intelligent, loving, successful women, all of which describe Michelle along with other First Ladies—can’t show excitement or passion is ludicrous. I’m sure I’ve made that exact face watching many a KU game. We all get excited sometimes, and I just don’t think this seems like a kind or Christian thing to post.”
