I thought that Michelle Robinson Obama was great First Lady. When her husband’s ex Attorney General Holder went low she scolded him for not going high! But the political conversation in the country continues to get lower and lower on both side.
The other day I saw a picture of the ex-first lady with her naturally curly hair and instantly thought of my beautiful granddaughter who has the same beautiful curls…All of this made me think of cultural appropriation and I asked myself if Mrs. Michelle Robinson Obama was guilty of this as well…
I don’t think so. If you’re a member of a long term discriminated class you are going to try to fit in with the mainstream whether it’s straightening your hair or driving a Cadillac. I hope my granddaughter never feels that she needs to do either to fit in!
And that’s all I have to say about that!
