Michelle Obama was at Target — dressed like everybody else — and someone asked her to get something off the shelf and that was an act of racism? Well who would have known? I mean, shorter people and wheel chair bound individuals have often asked me to help them out by getting an item off a shelf that was out of their reach. I never knew that meant they were treating me like the help or that they were racists in disguise, instead of just regular people asking for a friendly helping hand .
I’ve also been asked if I worked in various places, where I was likewise a customer. I didn’t know, until I read the woes of the Obamas that I was being insulted. Now I know. Well, not really.
Listening to the Obamas, it is verified that some simply look at the entire world and all things that happen to them (and everyone else) through the eyes of race. Everything must be due to racism — can’t ever be anything else. And yet these people cry racism and/or race insensitivity when speaking of others? I think some have thin skins no matter what shade those skins may be.
Helping someone by getting something off a shelf is being treated like the help? Heaven help the Obamas if they think their examples represent actual racism or that they were being treated like the help. It’s called life among people and helping out when one can. It’s called being part of the “human race“.
