Obamas Say They're Still Affected by Racism

Washington (CNN) -*


They're the most powerful couple in the country but President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama say they're sometimes still treated like the help.

Speaking to*People Magazine, the first lady recounts a trip to Target when a fellow customer asked for assistance with an item -- not recognizing her as the wife of the President of the United States.

"She didn't see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her," Mrs. Obama said. "Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn't anything new."

The president said he -- like many African-American men -- had been mistaken for a valet.

"There's no black male my age, who's a professional, who hasn't come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn't hand them their car keys," he told the magazine.

Obama said those indignities don't compare to the violent struggle for equal rights waged a generation ago. But he said it's concerning when law enforcement regards African-American men with undue suspicion.

"It's one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It's another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed, or worse, if he happens to be walking down the street and is dressed the way teenagers dress," he said.

The Obamas comments come after a spate of incidents that involve police and race -- in two cases, grand juries failed to indict police officers responsible for the deaths of unarmed black men, leading to angry protests.

Some have called on Obama to take a firmer stand against aggressive police tactics. The White House announced earlier this month a review panel to look into the relationship between communities and police forces nationwide.

Playing the victim... They have zero respect for the Presidency.

And I call bullshit, if the First Lady is at Target she'll be escorted by secret service. And we all know she's never seen in public without a $5,000 outfit on. No way someone mistook her for a Target employee, they wear red shirts that say Target..

I know there's racism, whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics, they all have racist people among them.

I've been asked if I work somewhere before I'm sure a lot of whites have. It's funny he thinks and she thinks it's racist.

This kind of buffoonery is below the the office of the Presidency. It's embarrassing our nation that our President says he's felt racism. Because he was mistaken for a valet..

Re: Obamas Say They're Still Affected by Racism

I agree with you niknik on there being no way possible for the First Lady to have been at Target and being approached by some commoner.

I can only imagine there being at LEAST 4 secret service personnel within arms reach of her.
