Michelle Obama’s Commencement Speech

I searched it out and watched the whole thing because I heard some pretty nasty things and was reading from some that the quotes were taken out of context. They were and they weren’t.


So much of what she is saying is beautiful and so inspiring for everyone but she ruins it when she makes it sound like it’s only hard for black people. Everything she is saying could be applied to anyone. It makes me sad. I loved a lot of what she said but then she alienated me. Why do we need to set ourselves in small groups? Why can’t we inspire people with the fact that we are all under similar pressures? Why can’t we lift people up with the message that we are all in this life together? There are no black rights. There are no gay rights. There are only HUMAN rights.
