Does Michelle Obama's Insightful Senior Thesis Play Race Card?
People who have no lives recently discovered that Michelle Obama's senior thesis had been "withdrawn" from the Princeton library until after the general election. How peculiar, these same terrible people wondered. The wait, however, ended recently when the Obama campaign sent Politico a copy of the 1985 thesis, titled "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community." From the excerpts Politico features, it seems like a brilliant, personal analysis of the struggle to preserve, or disregard, "black identity" in a largely conservative, white environment (Princeton). So what are the terrible ways that the Republicans will use this college paper during the general election?
It's pretty simple: she obviously hates white people and will never get along with them:
"My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my '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. Regardless of the circumstances underwhich I interact with whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be black first and a student second."
Well good for you, Michelle, but while you were busy being "black first" at Princeton, John McCain was busy being tortured for his country in the war. This despite the fact that John McCain is 500 years older than you.
And John McCain isn't "pretending" to only represent white people -- John McCain is authentic about only representing white people. Why can't Barack, who didn't write this paper, be authentic about only representing black people?:
Perhaps one of the most germane subjects approached in the thesis is a section in which she conveyed views about political relations between black and white communities. She quotes the work of sociologists James Conyers and Walter Wallace, who discussed "integration of black official(s) into various aspects of politics" and notes "problems which face these black officials who must persuade the white community that they are above issues of race and that they are representing all people and not just black people," as opposed to creating "two separate social structures."
This intelligent paper that Michelle Obama wrote in college, one time, could very well spell the end of Barack Obama.
