Just a reminder that the Obamas live in an $8 million mansion in Kalorama, DC which is 83% white and just 3.8% black.
Michelle Obama wants Americans to think that there is still a racial divide and that whites are “still running” from minorities. She made the divisive and racist remark at the Obama Foundation Summit, held at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.
She’s using the tired cliche that “white flight” is happening in 2019 by saying that whites are “afraid of black people.” This is exactly what Democrats have done for decades to garner votes from the black community. Shame on Michelle but she just can’t help herself. She chooses to be stuck in the past and wants others in the black community to stay with the Democrats and their belief that there is a racial divide. It’s all about power and votes. Just ask Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
“I can’t make people not afraid of black people. I don’t know what’s going on, I can’t explain what’s happening in your head, but maybe if I show up every day as a human, a good human … Just maybe that work will pick away at the scabs of your discrimination.”

During an interview, Michelle Obama described when she first became conscious of “white flight”:
“We were doing everything we were supposed to do…and better,” Obama said of her family, recalling when they got a new address on Chicago’s South Side. “But when we moved in, white families moved out.
“I want to remind white folks that y’all were running from us,” she continued, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “And you’re still running.”

This is what Michelle Obama knows and she’s been pushing it for years:
An excerpt below from Michelle Obama’s autobiography ‘Becoming’:
“More intriguing was my early discovery that there was such a thing as an African-American elite. Most of my new high school friends were black, but that didn’t necessarily translate, it turned out, to any sort of uniformity in our experience.
“A number of them had parents who were lawyers or doctors and seemed to know one another through an African-American social club called Jack and Jill. They’d been on ski vacations and trips that required passports. They talked about things that were foreign to me, like summer internships and historically black colleges.”
After school, Obama and her pals sometimes headed to Water Tower Place. “Once there, we rode the escalators up and down, spent our money on gourmet popcorn from Garrett’s, and commandeered tables at McDonald’s for more hours than was reasonable, given how little food we ordered. We browsed the designer jeans and the purses at Marshall Field’s…. surreptitiously tailed by security guards who didn’t like the look of us.”
