Meet The Woman

As unbelievable as it may seem, and I assure you it is so to me, Michelle Obama apparently does not care about black people.

Why do I say that?

Because, of the two outfits she wore for her husband’s historic inauguration (this yellow number for the day, this gown for the evening’s numerous parties), both of which were made by professional designers, neither of them was made by a black designer.  That’s right, of the two outfits she wore for one of the most momentous occasions of her life, she couldn’t be arsed to uplift her race and wear something by a black designer.

Ergo, Michelle Obama does not care about black people.

For her choice to ignore the contributions of black people to the fashion world, Michelle Obama was rightly criticized by the Black Artists Association (which, by the way, represents painters, not designers, but spoke up for the slighted designers “because we felt it was the right thing to do”).  Granted, their head received death threats for speaking up, but God bless them anyway for doing so.

What’s next, Michelle?  A hurricane in Detroit?  No black chefs in the White House?  Snubbing reporters from BET?  Not attending your own family reunions?  Will the persecution that Michelle Obama perpetrates upon black people never end?

The Man is gone. . .meet The Woman, Michelle Obama.

P.S. In case you can’t tell, I’m completely kidding.  I don’t know what Michelle Obama’s reasons were for choosing the designers that she chose, but given her husband’s repeated statings that he believes in “what works,” I can easily believe that her reasons were pragmatic and did not involve race.  Anyway, who fucking cares?  We got bigger problems right now.

    I was wondering what your opinion of this was going to be, though I figured it would be something like this. I found it all quite petty. As you said, we’ve got bigger problems than this. The organization itself is doing nothing to uplift its race by criticizing her. I love your tag “the complete opposite of brilliance”.
