Michelle Obama Supported Race & Gender-Based Hiring in College
A 1988 article written by then-college student Michelle Obama reveals a great deal about where she is coming from politically and socially.
Known then as Michelle Robinson, the future First Lady wrote an article for the Harvard Black Law Students Association called "Minority Women and Law Professors-A Comparison of Teaching Styles." In the article she claims the following (from the Daily Caller): Harvard and its students were perpetuating “racist and sexist stereotypes” by not intentionally hiring minority and female law professors on the basis of their sex or skin color.
Re-read that last line again a few times. As an attorney, she was heading into the world with the view that law is not the means by which civil society keeps order and civility, but is used against powerless people. Rather than seek "blind, colorless justice," she viewed it differently.
When coupled with her husband's pre-2008 election remarks about "bitter white people clinging to God and their guns," you can draw your own conclusions about their behavior and actions in the White House.
