FLOTUS Calls NYT Reporter Racist

Is the headline accurate, or am I missing something?

First lady Michelle Obama is challenging assertions she’s forcefully imposed her will on White House aides and says people have inaccurately tried to portray her as “some kind of angry black woman.”

Mrs. Obama tells CBS News she hasn’t read New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor’s new book that characterizes her as a behind-the-scenes force in the Executive Mansion, whose strong views often draw her into conflict with President Barack Obama’s top advisers.

I remember back in the 80’s reading allegations that Nancy Reagan was an assertive control freak who butted in where she didn’t belong. Who knew that the media was only trying to falsely portray Nancy as some kind of angry black woman?
