Is America Ready For Black Women To Heavily Criticize The Wife Of A White Presidential Nominee?

Republician presidential nominee, John McCain's wife Cindy was trying to clap back at Michelle Obama in a very sneaky way. She made some very veiled swipes at some remarks Michelle Obama made about feeling proud of her country. Now, I feel that Mrs. Obama is going to have to get a little bit better at making sure her remarks cannot be so easily misconstrued, but I am wondering if "Grandma" Cindy McCain really wants to mix it up with Michelle Obama.

Black women have rarely had a reason to get involved in sniping between presidential candidate spouses, but I am wondering with all the chips on the table, will black women put up with a white woman openly attacking a sista, particularly if that sista is Michelle Obama. Black women are truly finding their voices in this campaign season and I could see black women flipping out if they feel that Cindy McCain is getting out of line. Is America really ready for that? I'm not so sure.

This is truly a unique situation. Do you really see Cindy McCain addressing questions about race and gender in a way that will interest and support the views of women of color? Do you see Cindy McCain in a black church or mixing with poor folks? I don't. Michelle Obama seems to have a free and easy way with different kinds of people, she is definitely a serious advantage for Obama if he wins the nomination. I just don't see black folks putting up with Michelle Obama being criticized in any fashion.

Oh they'll put up with criticism of her alright. Trust. They don't say jack in defense of Oprah, and won't for her either.

Somehow I think she'll be able to handle herself though.

i agree with you shecodes...i feel that she is prepared for whatever happens. and that she will be able to handle each situations with grace and mercy.
even if she has to go and close the door to a rrom and "cuss everybody out! so that no one hears her.
lolol

Although I do think that Michelle can handle her own, I don't like to hear the likes of O'Reily referring to lynching her if he understands her comment to mean that she doesn't love this country.

I'm making a call and sending an email message to Fox Nexs eventhough it may go on deaf ears.
