I don’t know about ya’ll, but I for one am tickled pink that our first lady is a black woman.
I’m happy for Barack Obama and I realize that him becoming POTUS is history with a capital “H”, but it’s Michelle Obama that really makes me grin and want to do a silly dance.
It’s kind of strange. I never realized how much of an impact that the endless line of white women being ‘First Lady’ impacted me until Michelle Obama. When it comes to race I’m somewhere between white woman and woman of colour with most people classifying me as middle eastern or plain “not white”, especially if I’m out with my daughter who is very white.
The point of this post? I suppose there is no point. I guess I just wanted to share my joy at the First Lady looking a bit more like me than not this time around.
