First Lady Michelle Obama tells students
of historic Brown v. Education town ´by
some measures our schools are as
segregated´ as they were back then

Daily Mail [UK], by Francesca Chambers & Associated Press

Segregation by force of law is no longer legally acceptable in America, but de facto segregation still plagues our schools and neighborhoods, First Lady Michelle Obama told a group of graduating students Friday night. The First Lady was expected to use the speech to celebrate about diversity in America. Instead, she took racism head on, telling the Topeka, Kansas, seniors, ´by some measures, our schools are as segregated as they were back when Dr. King gave his final speech.´ ´And even in schools that seem integrated according to the numbers, when you look a little closer, you see students from different

Comments:
Look up "spurious," Mrs. Obama. And then look up "denial." Finally, look up "shouting ´fire!´ in a crowded theater."

"´And even in schools that seem integrated according to the numbers, when you look a little closer, you see students from different backgrounds sitting at separate lunch tables, or tracked into different classes, or separated into different clubs or activities,´ she said."
Know why that is, Mooch? Its because yo brudders & sistuahs segregate themselves at the lunch tables. Different classes? Check the IQ tests. Different activities? Check the physical build vs the IQ tests.
Its reality. Sistuah!

This self-involved, perpetually irritated woman illustrates her vapidity every time she opens her mouth. Of all presidential wives she is the most destructive to our country and our society.

So begins the Left´s push to bring back busing and require quotas on neighborhood diversity. These draconian measures will require home builders and sellers to require buyers to meet racial quotas. School systems will also be required to meet race quotas to receive federal funding .
Once again Obama punishes America.

This woman and her husband should be the biggest Cheerleaders for America and her People. Instead they are constantly knocking U.S. down. How much must they hate America and all it stands for. Hey Mr. And Mrs. Obama how about you keep the negatives to yourself and start telling Americans that we are One Nation of People under god.

"Or the wealthy and entitled send their kids to the prestigious private school so they won´t have to mingle with the riff-raff". (Long Pause) "Never mind".

Fact: Sidwell Friends, where the Obama children attend, costs $25,000 per year for tuition or about $4,000 LESS per pupil than the DC public schools proving once more that it isn´t about the money spent on education.

And even in schools that seem integrated according to the numbers, when you look a little closer, you see students from different backgrounds sitting at separate lunch tables, or tracked into different classes, or separated into different clubs or activities,´ she said.

How come I know about "freedom of association" and she doesn´t? I don´t think schools can legally usurp that right.

Michelle should check Wiki. They use really easy to understand wording.

Freedom of association is the right to join or leave groups of a person´s own choosing, and for the group to take collective action to pursue the interests of members.[1] It is both an individual right and a collective right, guaranteed by all modern and democratic legal systems, including the United States Bill of Rights, article 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and international law, including articles 20 and 23 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and Conventions 87 and 98 of the International Labour Organization.

Just out of curiosity, I wonder if the First Lady´s Princeton friends were mostly of her own race - not that I am being critical - but if true - then what she is telling these students is dishonest. When she chose her friends she chose them because she wanted them to be her friends - I am sure that it was not because she was shut out of any other group.

Common interests are mostly what makes us choose certain people to be our friends and that is normal - like is attracted to like. (There is nothing racist about what I am saying.)

The difference between Brown v. Ed is that today, there is self-segregation going on. People want to stay with their own kind, blacks mostly wanting to stay with other blacks.

Now why would that be? Could it be because hatred of Whitey has been taught, promoted and embraced by this POTUS, his own "Reverend", Muslims, the government schools, and the Dept. of Justice?

Regarding multiculturalism, what of value has been learned by it? That forced busing doesn´t work, that forcing people to associate with people they don´t really like and have little in common with, and that whatever is forced is resented. That is what has happened.

So if there´s any segregation going on in our schools, it´s self-imposed, Michelle.

It´s OK for the blacks to segregate themselves whenever and wherever they want to. But all hell breaks loose if whites do the same.

There is no hope for the permanently aggrieved. There are more opportunities for minorities in this country than there has ever been. It once again comes down to the family unit. The father and mother play a tremendous role in the success of their own children and it has little to do with race or economic status. For centuries poor people of all ethnicities have been lifting themselves out of poverty through hard work and education. Washington can´t do what a mom and dad can. That is where success is fostered. Give a child a family unit committed to itself, willing to sacrifice for their children and provide examples of a good work ethic, belief in God, and miracles can happen.

The Obama´s will not address the real problems in education. One is the hip-hop ghetto culture that is at war with its children and families. However, the Obama´s celebrate the purveyors of that rot at the White House quite frequently. You can´t fix what you deny. Another problem is the attitude that being smart is acting "white". That is simply unconscionable. This is a great country. There are ample opportunities, but parents can´t ignore their responsibility to the lives they bring into this world. Kids are a product of their environment.

What she said is true. But it isn´t racism, it´s just high school. It is human nature to associate with who you have things in common with. The high school cafeteria is the best example of this. Popular white girls sit with popular white girls. Pot heads sit with pot heads. Blacks sit with blacks. Asians sit with Asians. Drama kids all sit together. It´s all by choice and I´m sure it hasn´t changed much since I sat at the goody goody table 11 or so years ago. Sometimes I think Michelle believes she is the star of a teenage rom com.

If most colleges are like the one my girls attended, the blacks are mostly on a free ride, party constantly, make excessive noise late at night and most drop out before graduation. The students who are serious and want to be able to study at night are subjected to this buffalo behavior on a daily basis. Segregation is not always a bad thing.

As for Michelle, she was no doubt one of those party girls who was pushed through because of who her parents were. After reading her thesis, which was on the same old track of how hard it is to black in a white world, I don´t have to guess what her IQ is.

Now attempting to portray herself as a supporter societal integration, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson (Obama), while at Princeton, sat on the board of the Third World Center (TWC) an organization for select minorities that promoted black Marxism and black separatism. The TWC promoted organizational policies that were blatantly hostile to whites and it attempted to ban all whites from its general meetings and from its meetings with campus administrators.

A Princeton Magazine wrote at the time, “…. drawing campus issues along racial lines—a penchant shared by the TWC and The Daily Princetonian—is the chief cause of racial strife on campus”.

Princeton attempted to implement reforms that would address the self-segregation of blacks by no longer allowing all-black dorms and by encouraging black student freshmen to integrate into the general student body. The TWC strenuously opposed these reforms by stating that by integrating black students, it would harm the ‘support system’ that blacks had set up for themselves.

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, as a board member of the TWC, along with other black separatist events and fund raisers, promoted a ‘Black Solidarity’ event for guest speaker, Manning Marable, who was, at the time, considered the most prominent black Marxist in the United States.

Marable wrote, “"Progressives can gain positions within the state, especially at municipal and state levels, which can help fund and support grass roots interests and indirectly assist in the development of a socialist majority”.

Marable also promoted an “alternate historical narrative” that “could be incorporated into the curricula of public schools”. He said, "the goal is not just to educate and inform, but to …….reconstruct America’s memory about itself" resulting in “new social movements” and “spontaneous insurrections.”

That Michelle Obama would now present herself as being of virtuous character re racial issues, while lecturing students about creeping ‘separatism’, is the absolute epitome of dishonesty and hypocrisy.

We can fix this, Ms. FLOTUS. Yes we can! We can assign seats in the lunchroom, and make everyone sit by someone they do not know. Then, we can a put a bunch of uncoordinated, short white guys (who DON´T got game) on the basketball team, add black non-swimmers to the swim team, and make sure every Mr. and Miss De-Segregated High are mixed race, or transgendered couples. Oh, and make sure there are plenty of girly-girls in auto shop, and plenty of burly boys in dance team. Once this is accomplished, I´m sure it will be as marvelous as your school lunch program.

A Swedish court has ruled that an arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on charges of sexual assault will stay in place. Mr Assange, who denies the allegations, has sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for the past two years to avoid extradition. If he is sent to Sweden, he says he fears charges in the US over the leaking of secret government documents. [Snip] "All in all, the district court makes the assessment that the reasons for the arrest warrant offset the infringement and adverse effects the measure entails for Julian Assange," Judge Lena Egelin said.

One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard.

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
