Beyond the obvious beauty and grace of our First Lady, one must consider the historic importance of this photo. Our history books sweep under the rug the fact that the White House was built by African American slaves. For the next 150 years the majority of the serving staff of the so called “people’s house” were African American. In 1901 Booker T. Washington was the first African American to be received there as a guest by Theodore Roosevelt, to the horror of Washington society. They are all at last vindicated in our first African American first family. Note…It is my humble opinion that no matter what family should occupy the White House after January 2017, and the following generations for that matter, they will never equal the style, debonair, and class as that of the Obamas.
This argument PISSES me off to no end. Let me explain something.
1) Obama didn’t send ICE into communities in military gear and guns. 2) Obama did’t get ICE to go door to door terrorizing people and asking for their papers. 3) 83% of Obama’s deportations where “Priority 1″ aka they had criminal records/gang ties / deemed a public safety.
4) Obama spent how much of his presidency trying to figure out ways to safeguard “Dreamers” and people that came here when they were young… 5) Obama spent how much of his presidency trying to work with Republicans to fix the immigration process…
I cannot handle 4 years of this false equivalence bullshit that is happening.
