Michelle Obama Gets Heckled -- That Doesn't Make Her an "Angry Black Woman"
[Editor's Note: First Lady Michelle Obama was interrupted by a protester for LGBT rights at a private fundraiser Tuesday night, and according to the Huffington Post, she stopped her speech and told the heckler to stop or she would leave. Michelle Obama and #FLOTUS were trending on Twitter, with reactions divided between applause and criticism. Michele at Black 'n Bougie says the criticisms are just another example of the First Lady being portrayed as an "angry black woman". Read on and tell us what you think. --Grace]
There is nothing wrong with a black woman showing displeasure when an entitled white woman (or anyone for that matter) gets out of line. FLOTUS has been more that gracious with people that I would have slapped silly and kept it pushing. But as per usual, media outlets have to play to the stereotype and paint FLOTUS as some random reality show chick yanking hair and calling folks all manner of b*tches.
