Everyday there seems to be an attack on women in some form in the media, most notably black women. And the First Lady of the United States doesn’t appear to be off limits in this attack. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner was recently over heard in the Regan National Airport, saying some pretty mean and distasteful things about our First Lady, Michelle Obama. Jim feels as though Michelle Obama should “practice” what she preaches in regard to her “Let’s Move” campaign which promotes and encourages healthy eating and exercise. In his words: “She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”

Whoa, stop the press. He could not be looking at the same women the rest of are, the Michelle that is in great shape, health, and not to mention fashion forward. That comes to total of pure fabulousness. How can a man who appears to be quite opposite, fix his mouth to say such things. Jim Sensenbrenner can really benefit from Michelle’s “Let’s Move” Campaign because his posterior is much bigger there out first lady. Since the news has hit the public he has since apologized, “I regret my inappropriate comment and I have sent a personal note to the First Lady apologizing.” Oh how convenient, trying to cover up your rudeness. I do indeed think that this apology was forced. What you think?

  • I’m supersensitive so this news upset me enormously. When will white male privilege prohibit the attack on black women’s bodies?!?! My other reaction was like the other commenters, which was “Whoa, this is a married woman!” What right does he have?! He insulted the wife of the leader of the free world!

    • So Over This Ish

      I’m very sensitive too, Elizabeth…I understand how you feel.

      But at the same time, you can’t allow the ignorance to hurt you. Not everyone can appreciate the beauty of Black women.
