The sexists and racists at the Washington Post – and elsewhere – seem to be missing the point and projecting their own racism and sexism on others. No one cares about Michelle Obama’s race. People comment because you have a fat person who is LECTURING the rest of us on healthy eating. Look at Michelle Obama’s height and weight, calculate her BMI and tell us she is not “overweight” or “obese”.
Would the Washington Post have an article about Chris Christie or Ted Kennedy’s behind? No. Clear sexism at work.
The Washington Post’s preoccupation with race makes one wonder what their issue with skin color is.
Would the same be said about others? Yes, if Honey Boo Boo’s mom was lecturing the country on our food choices, people would say the same thing. If Chris Christie was telling people to eat better while still packing on the pounds, people would say the same thing.
Hypocrisy is lecturing the country on good eating habits while doing the opposite.
