Michelle Obama Masters Thesis, what do you think?

Have you read her thesis?

I don't think she is doing much to get skin color out of the picture.

"My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my 'blackness' than ever before," the future Mrs. Obama wrote in her thesis introduction. "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."

My uncle who is a black homosexual during his time at Princeton, has the very same story as she....it's a "gotta be in the shoes 2 appreciate it", kinda thing.

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.

Her thesis says a lot about her. It sounds to me that she thinks of herself as black first and a student second, yet integration is her goal? It's contradictory at best. She makes plenty of unfounded assumptions also.

In the words of Katt Williams:
"It's called SELF ESTEEM! It's esteem of your mothaeffin' self. How am I gonna eff up how you feel about you?"
