    FLOTUS is like most Black ppl in the USA. We hold no illusions about how we’re viewed and treated by White society. None at all.

    Mrs Obama is spectacular… I love her strength, I love her decency, I love her integrity, I love her dignity, I love her sincerity, I love her humility which Maya Angelou rightly described as authentic and deeply respectful and acknowledging of the ancestors who bore the deepest burdens on all of our behalf, I love her mind, wisdom, brilliance and big brain as Toni Morrison poetically describes it, I love her grace even under pressure, I love her wit, her sense of humor, her groundedness, I love that she’s at once tough, no-nonsense, but also sweet, bashful, and when she needs to be, reticent. I love how she loves, respects and supports her husband so passionately, but isn’t a step-ford wife. I love how she loves being a mom and wears her mom badge so proudly and unabashedly. I love how much she values family…

    I love that there’s absolutely nothing generic about her, that she doesn’t reinvent herself and her life story to fit or to pander or to be accepted. I love how she could easily have gotten sucked into and desperate to be accepted, turned her life upside down to be acceptable to the hoity-toity, the influence purveyors and the kingmakers, but she instead refused and continues to live and enjoy life completely on her own terms – never beholden to anyone.

    And after all these years, she’s still so recognizable and unaffected and so beautifully and unapologetically herself…
