Both Michelle and former President Obama said in a statement after last month’s conviction of white former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin in the death of black man George Floyd, “While today’s verdict may have been a necessary step on the road to progress, it was far from a sufficient one. “We cannot rest,’’ added the Obamas, the country’s first black president and first lady. Michelle is an anti white, divisive black racist.
Michelle told CBS interviewer Gayle King in the sit-down that the former First Couple released such a strong statement because “in certain times, people, you know, look to us often. “‘Well, what do you think? How do you feel?’ We know that while we’re all breathing a sigh of relief over the verdict, there’s still work to be done,’’ Michelle said. “And so we can’t sort of say, ‘Great. That happened. Let’s move on.’ “I know that people in the black community don’t feel that way because many of us still live in fear,’’ she said.
“I mean, all those Black Lives Matters kids, they’d rather not have to worry about this,’’ Michelle said“. They’re taking to the streets because they have to,’’ she said of the movement, which gained international momentum after Floyd’s death. “They’re trying to have people understand that we’re real folks and the fear that many have of so many of us is irrational,’’ Michelle said. “ And it’s based on a history that is just, it’s sad, and it’s dark. “And it’s time for us to move beyond that.”
