Celebrating people for the color of their skin is racist, is it not?
“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
EDITOR’S NOTE: For the Liberal Democrat race baiter, fostering racism is a key rung on their ladder of political success. They desperately need the whites and the blacks to be separate, angry and at each other’s throats. On one hand, they decry racism at the hands of “elite white males” who rule society, and on the other do everything they can to draw distinctions between the races. Would Michelle Obama have been the keynote speaker at a “White Girls Rock” event? Could such an event even be allowed to take place in America? I think you know the answer to that one. A much better name for a group like this would be “Young Girls Rock!” which would include everyone and draw attention to no one in particular. That’s how you begin to end racism in America. But who wants to do that?
NEWARK, N.J. — First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated the beauty, power and tenacity of black women while spreading her own message of education for girls at Black Girls Rock!, an annual event honoring trailblazing women of color from all walks of life.
“No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, you are beautiful,” Obama told the crowd, which included many young black girls.
Obama got arguably the night’s loudest ovation as she came on stage and declared “Black girls rock!” – the slogan and name of the organization founded by Beverly Bond. It is designed to uplift young black girls, a group that often has difficulty finding positive and reaffirming images of themselves in the world.
Obama’s speech was just one of many highlights of the nearly four-hour event, which will be shown Sunday, April 5, on BET.
