Michelle Obama Visits Target, Immediately Cries ‘Racist’

Michelle Obama thinks it's racist for someone at Target to ask her for help.

Barack and Michelle Obama are sharing their own personal experiences with racial prejudice, saying they’ve been mistaken for valet drivers and Target employees — the latter even occurring during their time at the White House.

“The only person who came up to me in the [Target] store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her,” Michelle Obama told People magazine, recalling a trip she made to Target, according to excerpts released Wednesday.

She continued, “Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

President Barack Obama shared that he has been mistaken for staff as well on numerous occasions during his life.

“There’s no black male my age, who’s a professional, who hasn’t come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn’t hand them their car keys,” said the president.

Michelle just sounds so resigned, as if Selma, Alabama was a recent memory. And Barack is miffed that he has the style of a Waldorf valet. I would be too. But the real question is are these experiences of true racism, or contrived annoyances the Obamas are using to relate to underprivileged minorities who have experienced true racism? The First Couple must be playing with us.
