This is what I've been talking about for some time now. The media gave Michelle great special accolades for doing something all First Ladies do. So the question is why did they do it? In my opinion it’s because she’s African American. This doesn't help black people this just lowers the bar because it takes less to be recognized as long as you're a person of color.
Color should not be part of the equation, at least that's what I thought we were working towards. Until everyone is held to the same standards regardless of gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation, equality will not exists.
