Michelle: ‘Afraid White Folks’ Were Running From Us & Still Are, Gets Smackdown

Michelle Obama was at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago on Tuesday when the former first lady started making racially charged statements. Michelle claimed that “afraid white folks” were running from “us” and that they still are in 2019. In fact, she peddled some pretty disgusting stereotypes to make white people appear extremely racist. Well, that’s when a few patriotic Americans made sure she really regretted it. You’ll love this.

Michelle Obama spoke out against “white flight” in a recent interview, saying that she experienced it as a kid and that it remains a problem. “White flight” occurred in certain cities when a predominantly white neighborhood started to see an influx of black families move in. There are complicated reasons why the white Americans left, and to blame it entirely on racism is totally wrong.

“As families like ours — upstanding families like ours who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better. As we moved in, white folks moved out because they were afraid of what our families represented,” the former first lady said Tuesday at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.

I want to remind white folks that y’all were running from us … This family, with all the values that you read about, you were running from us. And you’re still running because we’re no different than the immigrant families that are moving in,” she continued.

“The families that are coming from other places to try to do better. But, because we can so easily wash over who we really were — because of the color of our skin, because of the texture of our hair — that’s what divides countries, artificial things.”

Michelle is lying by omission about “white flight” which happened primarily between the 1950s to 1960s.

The best example of what she is talking about happened in Compton, California. Most people have heard of Compton today as the place made infamous by major rap stars and gangs.

Most people don’t know Compton was 95 percent white in the mid-1950s. When the neighboring Watts area, populated by African-Americans, started to prosper in an economic boom after World War II, those families started to move next door into Compton, which was a much nicer area.

White families did not start moving right away from Compton. However, after the 1965 “Watts riots” which were similar to the 1992 Rodney King riots, many of those families became scared. Real estate agents fed that fear, and by the 1970s Compton’s population had become 65 percent black.

Michelle wants to paint all white people as racist who would move after a horrendous riot went down where people were killed. We can all do without her sick race-baiting talks. She’s as bad as the Rev. Al Sharpton.

That’s why patriotic Americans let Michelle know they see right through her sick tactics to divide America. 

“It’s got NOTHING to do with skin color lady,” tweeted “Unashamed Patriot.”

“The O’s are at it again. They set back race relations for decades in office & continue to widen the divide after they leave? Are they trying to cause a civil war?” tweeted Twitter user “Tara.”

“Funny stuff seeing your hubby is half white and your daughters’ one-quarter white. Are they running too?” tweeted Don M. Guilmette.

@MichelleObama continues her efforts to divide our country by race-baiting. She can’t stand the thought of a united America,” tweeted Rhonda Kazmierski.

The real people to blame for “white flight” are Michelle’s own party: the Democrats. 

In 1965, 75 percent percent of black children were being raised with a father in the home. Today, over 70 percent of African-American children are raised without a father in the home. No other race in America has seen such a huge change. So what caused this horrible dynamic?

Honest scholars all point to the Democrats “Great Society” which introduced welfare and public housing in 1964. When 1964 also saw a recession, Democrats sold these minority families onto the government system of welfare and free housing.

“About half of all blacks had moved into the middle class by the mid-sixties, but now progress seemed to be stalling. The rise in black income relative to that of whites, steady throughout the fifties, was sputtering to a halt in the 1960s,” City Journal reports. 

Add Planned Parenthood after 1974 targeting minority neighborhoods which gave minority men every reason to refuse to be responsible. Now, babies could just be “gotten rid” of, so the men thought there was no reason to get married. Unwed black mothers skyrocketed. Abortion wasn’t the answer to many African-American women who are deeply Christian. Those public housing structures became today’s ghettos.

This became a systemic problem and a way of life in black communities thanks to the Democrats who were eager to bring them into their tent for votes. So now we can see why Michelle wants to keep America divided racially. If the majority of blacks ever left “Uncle Sam’s plantation,” the party of Obama wouldn’t win any elections. We can only pray more and more people will wake up and learn the truth— that it was the very party who vowed to be helping minorities, who were really the ones enslaving them all over again.
