Is everyone spending their Friday night reading Michelle Obama’s thesis paper?
Her comment on never being proud of this country was an accidental moment of candor. Barack Obama’s wife is Cynthia McKinney’s ideological soul sister with better hair relaxer and a more expensive degree.
The Sociology major should have been a red flag (and it was). A big red flag with either a yellow star or a yellow hammer and sickle in the corner.
I’m only on page 14 and this is too good. Imagine George Wallace in a weave.
Some money transcripts after the jump:
Politico titles their story as Michelle Obama thesis being on the racial divide.
Let’s be very clear here – Michelle Obama is the Racial Divide. This is confirmed by page 8 when she starts paying heed to Stokely Carmichael’s calls for black separatism. As if all blacks need to huddle together and formulate a game plan before feigning integration so they can barter as an aggrieved class together.
Dedication: “Thank you for making me feel good about myself.” Deep. That does not imply at all that she is insecure about herself at all.
Michelle is wrought with racial awareness from the opening paragraphs and predictably seeks to find evidence to support her hypothesis.
That she “as a member of the Black community I was somehow obligated to this community and would utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit this community first and foremost. My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my (capital)”Blackness” than ever before. I have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don’t belong.”
Soak all that up for a second. She’s black first and foremost. An Ivy league education makes her Blacker than ever. No matter that her liberal Whiteys treat her no different than anyone else – she *feels* persecuted. There is no placating her racial insecurity.
She goes on again at some length about how she *feels* like she will be on the periphery of “White culture” that she is going to throw her entire resources into being a better Black. Essentially, voluntary self-segregationism.
Do the old Racial Reverse-O-Gram on Mrs. Obama’s talk and it’s the most racist claptrap you’ve ever heard. If I feel that black people are nice to me but I’m still unsure that I fit in so I’m going to make sure I dedicate my life to helping the white community.
On page 12, she complains that Princeton only had a black enrollment of around 10% and that the they “focus their attentions on accommodating the White students who comprise the majority”.
Nevermind that according to the US Census bureau that Blacks only accounted for around 12% of the population at the time.
By page 21, she is hypothesizing that the more blacks have positive relationships with whites, the more negatively they will view their own race.
Pg. 26 – such strong leaders as Stokely Carmichael. A Marxist who later died claiming that his prostate cancer was caused by American imperialism.
Pg. 50 – My speculation for this finding (ed. – idea that black “self-help” is hopeless decreasing among blacks more inclined to assimilation versus black separatists) is based on the possibility that a separationist is more likely to have a realistic impression of the plight of the Black lower class because of the likelihood that a separationist is more closely associated with the Black lower class or within their communities as a result of their ideologies, a separationist may better understand the desperation of their situation and feel more hopeless about a resolution as opposed to an integrationist who is ignorant of the plight.
Her “Major Conclusions”
pg. 54 “‘Integrated blacks’ have lost touch with the Black culture in their attempts to become adjusted and comfortable in their new culture — the White culture.”
Not exactly rocket surgery in terms of a conclusion. When examining the cohesive bonds from Pre-Princeton attitudes of black alumni to their attitudes while attending, she is so blinded by the racial prism she views everything that she cannot see that these attitudes are there for every college student regardless of race. When you leave home to go to school far away – you don’t have the support group you did before.
I began this study questionning (sic) my own attitudes as a future alumnus. I wondered whether or not my education at Princeton would affect my identification with the Black community. I hoped that these findings would help me conclude that despite the high degree of identification with Whites as a result of the educational and occupational path that Black Princeton alumni follow, the alumni would still maintain a certain level of identification with the Black community. However, these findings do not support that possibility.
Oh noes! White Princeton is infiltrating her subconscious and making her turn on her Blackness without her consent. If only she had Free Will.
So what to make of all this? Well, she’s been out of school for a while. Does she associate with Whitey? Does she attend an integrated Church or does her life revolve around the same segregationist principles she seemed to be in favor of at the time of this thesis?
We have 8 months to vet those questions out.
