Maybe Michelle Obama was the one who was prejudiced all along?

Updated: Nov 28, 2022

Former first lady Michelle Obama made the ridiculous claim last week that she always wanted to wear braids in the White House but didn't because she thought the country would not accept it. This nonsensical claim reveals more about the former first lady's prejudices about white people than the reality of the situation.

Obama commented on her previous hairstyles while on a book tour to promote her latest novel, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times. She never wore braids because she wanted the focus to be on her husband's political goals instead of her hair. That is why she always wore her hair straight. She claimed "Americans weren't ready" for her to have braids.
