Conservatives Revel In Their Racism As They Mock First Lady Michelle Obama

In the last election, many Americans and politicians, and the press is implicit in this problem, focused their attention on the plight of white Americans despite their numbers, as a percentage of the population, are decreasing as Hispanics and African Americans are growing in a natural progression in a multi-cultural society. In fact, leading up to the 2012 election, the press was preoccupied with the white vote; the white working class, white women, and wealthy white people and how they would decide the election in favor of Willard Romney. However, Republicans lost part of the white vote because of their racial resentment and extremism that goes against the social conscience of mainstream Americans whose attitudes toward tolerance is becoming the norm and, like decent human beings, are more concerned with fairness and diversity instead of religious extremism and pandering to rich white Americans. America is not changing; it has changed, and as the Republican Party becomes more extreme, and racist, they will find themselves declining in popularity among decent Americans regardless of their race, social, or economic demographic.

Hardline conservatives do not necessarily have a problem with Michelle Obamaís body shape, or her husbandís policies, it is with their race after white supremacy has been the explicit governing ideology throughout this nationís history. The dominant idea that guided the concept of democracy, and the role of government policy, centered on improving the lives of white people and limiting it for African Americans and Hispanics who were kept out of good schools, good jobs, and decent housing that has shifted among the population that demands equal opportunity for all Americans that President Obama so eloquently championed in his inaugural address.

Many on the left question whether Republicans are inherently racists, and it certainly appears that they are, but the better question is; does racism play any part in their opposition and obstruction to every policy, agenda, and proposal the President supports? The answer is decidedly yes because based on this nationsí long history of white supremacy and discrimination toward African Americans, any other conclusion is absurd and it is due in no small part to the despicably bad habit of governing solely for and by white Americans. When this President appoints Republicans to cabinet level positions, uses Republican ideas for healthcare reform, and leans far to the right on economic policy and still faces obstruction for the sake of obstruction, there is no other explanation other than racial resentment, and that includes mocking a highly popular First Lady because she is First Lady; not because of her derriere.
