I'll pause to let the quaking in boots subside.
Well, not exactly us.
Rich white people.
Joseph Curl, the author of this piece, can't help but be a bit derisive in describing her outrage - and her target - and her target audience:
Yes, Republicans hope to regain the White House so they can install Supreme Court justices who will trample Americans’ privacy, ignore the nation’s security, crush free speech and persecute the religious.
Oh, and they’re rich and racist to boot. “Will we be a country where opportunity is limited to just the few at the top? Who are we? Or will we give every child a chance to succeed no matter where they’re from, or what they look like or how much money their parents have. Who are we?”
That’s right, rich people (white, of course) certainly don’t want black people to succeed. They want to squelch success based on what people look like, how much money they have. “Are we going to let them succeed?” the first lady yelled. “Nooo!” the rich white people screamed. [emphasis mine]
It's the Michael Moore syndrome, I guess. (See below)
Rich white people hate the thought that rich white people don't want black people to succeed.
Suppose Mrs. Obama laughed at them when she left Davis Island, Florida to prepare for her next multi-million dollar vacation?
Rich white people. What would the rich black woman do without them?
