In a newly released interview, Michelle Obama talked about how hurt she was after critics portrayed her as being an “angry black woman.” This is probably a publicity stunt to keep her in the limelight as her husband gets set to leave the white House once and for all.
“That was one of those things where you just sort of think, ‘Dang, you don’t even know me,’ ” she told Oprah Winfrey in a CBS interview out Monday. “You just sort of feel like, ‘Wow, where’d that come from?’
“That’s the first blowback because you think, ‘That is so not me,’ ” Obama added. “But then you sort of think, ‘This isn’t about me.’ This is about the person or people who write it, you know? That’s just the truth.”
“You start thinking, ‘Oh wow, we’re so afraid of each other,’ ” she said, noting she initially encountered the phrase “angry black woman” in 2007, when her husband started his first presidential campaign.
