By now we’ve all been repeatedly told how “eloquent” the Obamas are when it comes to public speaking. Especially when said speeches are riddled with lies (see Nine Big Lies Obama Told In His State Of The Union Speech). So all of them.
Michelle Obama recently spoke at a college commencement. Guess what she talked about? Hint: it starts with a “d” and ends with “iversity.” She couldn’t help herself. Just like her makeup artist couldn’t help those Cruella de Vil eyebrows.
And graduates, I really want you all to know that there is a reason why – of all of the colleges and universities in this country – I chose this particular school, in this particular city, for this special moment.
Yeah, why did she choose this school? Because they have the highest overall GPA? They’re the most community-oriented? They have the best athletic department?
I’m gonna talk a little bit out diversity, thank you. Just look around. Look at who you are. You represent more than 150 nationalities. You speak more than 100 different languages. You represent every color and culture.
Surprise! Mrs. Obama only cares about race (Sheriff Clarke Blasts #BlackLivesMatter and Obama for Race-Baiting). Like she said, she picked them because they’re the most “diverse.” But not the “diversity” of thought, mind you. Michelle only focused on the diversity of skin melanin. She chose New York City College because they have the widest spectrum of skin colors. Grades and work ethic? Meh. Personalities and identities? Secondary to diversity.
The students at this school were selected not based on pedigree, but on merit and merit alone.
Wait… which colleges select their students based on their family tree? I’ve never heard of them. Maybe she means college groups which explicitly discriminate against whites? Or colleges which mark Asians differently than any other race?
Let’s take a moment to count the ironies here, because Michelle is coloring way outside the lines. Maybe if she spent more time framing her arguments logically and less time looking at NYC’s student body like a box of Crayolas, she could see how inconsistent she was being.
Because Michelle’s statements are…kind of racist. Right off the bat she admits to only seeing color. From then on, every accomplishment she congratulates these students on seems condescending. This is a perfect example of the not-so-subtle racism that stems from inclusion obsession. You’d think diversity would mean throwing color to the wind and seeing people for who they are instead, right? Nay. People like Michelle Obama only see diversity quotas and brown headcounts. Because #DIVERSITY.
