[color=#BF0080]I love them!![/color]
I didn’t care so much about having a “black” president because I don’t think it was such a big step from having respected men like Colin Powell in Washington. I’ve mentioned many times on this forum that I really didn’t even see him as culturally back, so I didn’t really think about the race aspect at all.
However, I am smitten with the idea of a black first family. His daughters! They’re so cute! Remember the vicious attacks that were made on Chelsea Clinton and the Bush daughters? How is anyone going to do that to these two lil pumpkins! (oh sure, you can find something, but I have to say the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter have been effectively muzzled.) Calling them “ugly”, as Limbaugh did to Chelsea Clinton, is only going to come back and slap them in the face. I hope they dare. It will be the death of them.
And Michelle, Michelle, Michelle, Michelle! Her charm, her grace! The way she is simply herself, without any need to make herself into one of the charactertures that black women get pigeonholed into in Hollywood (sassy comebacks, Monique, etc.) How is Hollywood not going to put black actresses into roles besides ones that were written specifically for black heroines after four years of watching Michelle travel the world acting only like her intelligent worldly sweet self.
If this sounds glowy, it’s because I have utterly fallen in love with our first family in a way I never have before in my lifetime. I am in love with our first family! And it feels good.
I just hope I don’t see a commemmorative plate I can’t live without. I’d have to hide that in a drawer. I love you Obama family!
