Michelle Obama Watch
The attacks gathering on her are scurrilous, profoundly sexist and racist. Will prominent white feminists and female pundits and officials — including Congressional Republican women — speak up forcefully against slurs on Michelle Obama? It will be a strong test of their good faith. Do they care about fairness to all women involved in public life, or are they just whining for Hillary or maneuvering for her voters?
Pam Spaulding tells us of an ‘art’ exhibit shut down in NYC that featured Obama’s daughters labeled as “nappy headed hos.” The exhibit also included the cover of his book altered to say “The Audacity of Black Hope,” among other offenses.
…a nonpartisan effort to monitor the media’s treatment and depiction of Michelle Obama, the most visible African American woman in popular culture. Michelle Obama Watch will become the repository of the good, the bad, the ugly and the indifferent.
