Patience wears thin for Michelle Obama when she ‘plays the race card’ AGAIN at women’s forum

Michelle Obama covered some old, familiar territory on a recent public appearance.

The former first lady told a Colorado gathering that despite her accomplishments and service during her White House years, people still “won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”

Obama spoke to the Denver crowd of about 8,500 at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary on Tuesday, covering topics from education to female empowerment, according to The Denver Post. Of course, she also addressed alleged racism she endured while first lady.

Women’s Foundation of Colorado President and CEO Lauren Casteel asked which of the shards from the glass ceiling Obama shattered cut her the deepest.

“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” she said, recalling being called an ape and comments about her body. “Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”

Obama revealed she is still hurt by the jabs, using the example to empower the many women in attendance and telling them to own their scars.

“Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don’t even notice we’re cut,” she said. “We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we’re still getting up.”

Though she steered clear of direct political statements, she did offer up a veiled shot at President Trump.

“The people in this country are universally good and kind and honest and decent,” she said. “Don’t be afraid of the country you live in. The folks here are good.”

Obama was greeted with a standing ovation at the event, her first public appearance since leaving the White House.

Pulling out the race card is not exactly news for the former first lady who once told graduates at a commencement ceremony how she woke up each morning during her husband’s administration “in a house that was built by slaves.”

Many on social media were quick to call out Obama’s rhetoric on Twitter.
