Our country is being plagued with a variety of serious issues right now that have left millions of Americans struggling to survive. However, during a recent interview with a black ballet dancer, Obama took the time to talk about what he really thinks is important: the negative perceptions of African-American women’s bodies. Things then got really weird when Obama began talking about the bodies of his own wife and daughters.
Misty Copeland recently became the first black principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater, which in the eyes of the race-baiting White House made her the perfect person to sit down with the president for an interview. Even Copeland herself never could have imagined Obama would start boasting about his wife Michelle’s curves, and say that his daughters have inherited the same traits. According to Mad World News, Obama said he “appreciates” Michelle’s curves and long legs, and that he’s happy his daughters have been “blessed” this way as well.
“When you’re a dad of two daughters, you notice more,” the president said, in regards to the negative messages women receive about their body image. “And that pressure, I think, has historically always been harder on African-American women than just about any other women.”
Then he got side-tracked.
“The fact that they’ve got a tall gorgeous mom who has some curves, and that their father appreciates, I think is helpful,” he said about his daughters having a positive body role model in their mom.
Yikes…This entire interview makes me cringe! What do you think about it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
