I know a lot of people dont like obama but what do you think about his wife???
Yes, you are right, you are not black, and you have no idea what it is like for a young black male living in this country. It may seem to you that they don't live in fear, because they live with everyday and have become used to it. But believe me, there experience is far different then yours.
These quotes are out-of-context about her feelings, which are very valid, and say nothing about her patriotism or love of country. I have been ashamed of my country over the last 8 years, but I still care deeply about it. Did you consider John McCain saying that he "really didn't love America until he was deprived of her company" to be talking negatively about our country? He is basically saying the same thing.
You need to start expanding your horizons beyond Rush and Fox. This is nothing but regurgitated crap coming from the right. When they first spread this on the net, do you know they added the word "really" before "proud" in the quote? Now if they were so "fair and balanced", why would they purposely lie to make it sound worse? To rally the mindless lemmings maybe?
"For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country"
"I don’t lose sleep over it, because the realities are that, you know, as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station, you know." Now I may not be black but I dont believe there is a fear among black men and women when they go walking into a 7 eleven.
Those are some bad quotes, and yes negative to the image of the United states because it is untrue. You cant justify it but I give her the benefit of a doubt.
I don't like Obama on many issues, however I deeply respect his wife. She is a women who will stand by her man and that is admirable. Dispite her negative comments about America, I believe they were made in the heat of the moment.
