Friday night, Michelle Obama delivered a commencement address for graduates from five Topeka high schools.

She got one thing right — the only way I’m going to end up in a country governed by leftist ideologues is if I’m dragged there:

Many school districts, she said, are withdrawing efforts to integrate their students, and communities are becoming less diverse as people flee cities for the suburbs.

“As a result, many young people in America are going to school with kids who look just like them,” Obama said. “And too often, those schools aren’t equal, especially ones attended by students of color, which too often lag behind with crumbling classrooms and less experienced teachers.”

Obama suggested that segregation in American schools can be seen in how students cluster at separate lunch tables or isolate themselves in different clubs or activities.

“They never really reach beyond their own circles.”

The tendency toward separation isn’t limited to the classroom, she said.

“Too many folks are still stopped on the street because of the color of their skin, or they’re made to feel unwelcome because of where they’re from, or they’re bullied because of who they love.”

The Brown decision, she said, isn’t about the past. It’s about the future.

She called on students to battle deep-seated prejudices that persist years after the civil rights movement swept across the country.

“Graduates, it’s up to all of you to lead the way and drag my generation and your grandparents’ generation along with you,” she said.

“When you meet folks who think they know all the answers because they’ve never heard any other viewpoints, it’s up to you to help them see things differently.

Gee, I wonder why people are fleeing the cities for the suburbs. Oh yes, it’s because liberal/progressive policies have destroyed our cities!

It’s also hilarious that a couple who send their kids to an elite DC private school are whining about people who are fleeing inner-city public education (justifiably so).

Hypocrisy is the foundation of Hope & Change.

    Mooch went further and said that children need to "police" their parents:

    Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism.
    “[O]ur laws may no longer separate us based on our skin color, but nothing in the Constitution says we have to eat together in the lunchroom, or live together in the same neighborhoods,” she said. “There’s no court case against believing in stereotypes or thinking that certain kinds of hateful jokes or comments are funny.”

    Of course not a peep out of Mooch when her own husband made his bitter clinger remarks about rural America or what about all those years in the pews of Rev Wright's church. It is not like she gave Rev Wright a tongue lashing for his sermons against whites or Jews.

    The Obamas should be know as the first family alright, the first family of hypocrisy.

    When I went to college, the black kids ALWAYS went to the same table at lunchtime—, they would not even get NEAR the white kids.

    Also, I noticed that this separation continued even in major league baseball. On the field, the players all played together, but if you looked in the dugout, the blacks sat together on one side of the bench. The Cardinal's bench with Ozzie Smith was like that all through the 1980s. They are taught from early age that the white man can't be trusted. And the Obama's are continuing that message full force every day in office.

    And who is it hurting? The black race…all of us. They are using the blacks for their own empowerment.

    Michelle should be saying, "Hey, give white people a chance!" LOL! Fat Chance.

    "as people flee the city for the suburbs"

    Way to keep the whole "White Flight" misnomer alive & kicking FLOTUS..! Firstly, as a long time bubble blogger tracking real estate and migration trends, it's actually been quite the *opposite* over the last several decades.

    Young, professional white couples have been FLOCKING to downtown areas in effect "fleeing White suburbs", that's where all those pricey downtown condo projects your DONORS cut a fat hog off of CAME from!

    Your husband's $4 a gal. energy policies pretty much cement that trend for any foreseeable future as commuting from da' burbs becomes increasingly ( in essence ) TAXED right out of existence and left to die a slow painful death.

    Dim's do a great job playing the Understandable Cognitive Dissonance Game and the know full well Meanchelle is FULL of it. But as long as tainting the narrative skews the tipping point, even if only a handful of DOLTS buy into it, then it was all worth the lie.

    So true. We're more or less from that same era and the military branches were all that same way. There's even been a revealing article on how blacks, with varying degrees of 'success' opted for segregation all throughout Viet Nam.

    Here we are in 2014 and after having come a long way, FLOTUS is perfectly willing to dash any and all progress if it gives the LSM the dog whistle to echo her [twisted] talking points.

    When what SHOULD have happened was the mike getting cut off and a her nurse administering meds. Guys, imagine had Laura Bush launched into a hateful RANT like this..?

    Joyanna,

    I went to one of the schools back in the 80's in a seedier side of San Jose, CA. Each group had it's own area of the school at lunch. The Jocks were by the bleachers, the preppy kids in the quad. the Latino's had the parking lot (most of them had some nice hot rods they rebuilt), the blacks were in the gymnasium, the Asians were out on the lawn, the book worms were in the library, the stoners were on the backside of the gymnasium (out of sight of the faculty).

    People flock to things that they find comfortable and similar to their belief structures. It isn't racism, but human nature. Early man formed groups as a way to ensure their own safety, but the groups were not randomly thrown together. They were of individuals with common emotional responses to situations.

    The military is pretty much still that way. You still see the self segregation going on within the units. Sure they fight together, work together and what not, but you still have your cliques going on.

    If Laura Bush had even said anything about race (even in a positive light) she would have been labeled a racist.

  7. Marshall_Will on May 19th, 2014 7:48 pm

    Right, there's even cliques at my [guard] base, where the ethnic composition is more in alignment w/ the local breakdowns. On the Active Duty side, G.I's are more or less thrown together by career field/specialty etc.

    Our cliques run a) hunting/fishing/outdoors crowd b) volunteers/do-gooders c) jocks/extreme sports and I head up group d) the party animals! Surprisingly it's a fairly even breakdown.

    You could add subsets as a function of Age; older hunters aren't going to rough it like the youngsters!? But that's hardly to imply there's anything "ageist" going on.

    “Too many folks are still stopped on the street because of the color of their skin, or they’re made to feel unwelcome because…"

    Again, if a Conservative had made any such assertion we get gang tackled from all directions as to where our FACTS are to back that UP? FLOTUS keeps wanting to relive the 70's, but without a smidgen of proof…

    Personally, most productive Americans only use "the street" as a means to get from point A to point B. Not *hang around* on it all day EVERY day. Might be part of the problem huh?

  9. Truesoldier__ on May 19th, 2014 10:41 pm

    Could you imagine the poor cop that "stopped her on the street" they would never make it out of the court room after that.

  10. Marshall_Will on May 20th, 2014 12:05 am

    Lol, and you thought Cops Reloaded was a gas! What's funny is FLOTUS staff probably had to call all OVER the country for her little speaking gig and uh… Topeka was the only town that din't turn them down?

    Good friend in Austin, TX brought to light the reason Dim's come unglued any time we suggest voter I.D laws is b/c a certain % of their base simply can't GET a legit I.D

    Be it traffic tickets [unpaid] moving violations, misdemeanors, back child support etc.., a trip to the local DMV is essentially the same thing as walking into the local POLICE precinct..! I'm pretty sure Dims know that.

  11. Truesoldier__ on May 20th, 2014 10:15 pm

    And that is why Holder is pushing for criminals to be able to vote. Pretty sure he is even trying to make it so that those that are currently incarcerated would get to vote…..Which to the dems makes sense seeing that most prisons are in rural areas, and rural areas tend to be more Conservative. It is about the only way the dems could turn the rural areas blue.
