Michelle Obama went to City College of New York and told the graduating students that she is living in a house built by slaves. This speech happened on June 4, 2016. Here is video of that speach.

we've come a long way.....but unfortunately Pres Obama hasn't been accepted by all the people....Bigot Donald, the Birther, did what he could to make sure the Obama was seen as illegitimate.....shoot, even a CDF poster and Trump supporter phma called Pres Obama a monkey a day or two ago.....

She could have stayed in Chicago. No one forced her into the W.H. and chained her up in the dungeon. Looks like a house with a lot of room. Why don't she put up some of the refugees there. They were vetted weren't they ? Charity begins at home just not her home.

Great that she has come this far with free education as she got scholarships for the best Ivy League schools but she tend to "forget" to mention how blessed she is and if she hates the WH as it may have been build by slaves and other people than she should have told her hubby not to run or get a divorce and move on.

The slaves were not pushed in the gas chambers like more than 6 million Jews and amongst them a lot of my family members who would have loved to live and perform some labor to stay alive!

Of course we can keep dwelling on the past or move on. Btw WWII was more recent than slavery and both were not the best times in history
Michele has not been proud of this country until her hubby started to run for the Presidency.

I was proud of this country long before I moved here as my life and the life of many other people (gypsies, gay people, Jewish people, etc.) have been saved by Americans who gave their life for Freedom of others!

Well, it won't be long, thank God, before Michelle and her anti-American husband are out the front door with their baggage!

If she felt strongly about this, she would not have moved in.

I take it neither of you actually listened to the speech! It was a good speech by the way. Maybe you can turn off your absolute hatred of her to give a listen. But I doubt you would.
