Michelle Obama wowed the crowd at an annual conference honoring black women with her typical celebration of racial differences.

Black girls rock!” the first lady said, getting a raucous ovation at an event also dubbed “Black Girls Rock!” according to Yahoo News.

“No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, you are beautiful,” Obama told the adoring crowd. “I am so proud of you. My husband, your president, is so proud of you. We have so much hope and dreams for you.”

It is a beautiful message, and surely it’s deserving of white girls, or black men, or white men, too, right?

Imagine former first lady Laura Bush standing on stage, saying, “White girls rock!”

The slight was not lost on many in the Twitterverse.
