A school in Topeka KS doesn’t want a radical anti-American black to speak at their school. Could Michelle Obama be banned.
The woman who coined the phrase, “For the first time in my adult life…” or something like that potentially has another reason to hate America, or at least the “fly over” part of Topeka KS, because some students don’t wan to speak at their graduation. I don’t blame them.
According to the UK Daily Mail:
- Taylor Gifford, 18, started an online petition on Thursday with over 1,200 signatures asking that Michelle Obama not speak at Topeka High School graduation
- Obama’s speech is tied to the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education outlawing segregation in schools
- Some students feel that the speech would overshadow student accomplishments and others feel limited seating will be a problem
These are all legitimate reasons. Further, what could Michelle Obama add to the mix, save drivel.
I applaud this young lady for standing up against what will undoubtedly become a “racial” situation. Frankly, I’m tired of politicians speaking at these events anyway. They are publicity stunts, where these should be intimate moments for families and friends, and not freak shows for politicians.
