The Obama’s recently talked with People magazine about dealing with their own “racist experiences,” in their goal to declare America a “racist nation“.
Michelle Obama re-told one story about a trip to target that recently took place while she was first lady of the United States.
“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the 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. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”
When she originally told the story it didn’t involve racism, but now being retold, it has become an issue in today’s “racist society”
