  2. I find her findings racist and small minded. If one takes the blue colar white or even more uneducated, the white trash and compare them to educated whites one will find the same change and differences. So of course she found that education and not the white community will change anyone who continues to learn from those who don’t become educated! Duh! So I find her thesis as not very bright and she should go back to school and continue to learn.

    • Melody,

      I know I am a bit late on this however, as I read Michelle Obama’s “Mumbo-jumbo” thesis, I had thought the exact same as you. Individuals with more in common with one another, will be attracted to one another. Isn’t that her whole thesis?

      It’s my understanding Michelle had a full scholarship to both Princeton and Harvard. I am high school educated man. Is this the best she could come up with?
      Let’s see, 1) If you are a women, who conceived a child; studies show*: you will spend more time with other women who conceived and not single women.
      2) If you are a man who is an avid golfer, studies show*; you’ll spend more time with other avid golfers and not softball players.
      3) If you are _____________, studies show*, you’ll spend more time with ____________ and not _____________.

      studies show*; to mean my own observations.

      I am sending this to Princeton and see if they will give me an “Honorary Degree”.

      http://www.electcwspada,com and we’ll bring the American dream back for “The Common People”.

    • I was working Security at a complex where college grads would apply for work..As they signed out at the front desk they were given a token to go out the Security gate.
      At the gate there is an arrow pointing to the slot saying insert coin here.
      75 to 80 percent of the time they deposited the coin in the card reader slot shorting out the card reader for active employees????
      A mechanic would come 2 to 3 times a week to fix the shorted card reader..
      He tried to have his boss remove the arrow since no one was paying attention to it anyway…..
      Point being. just cause your educated in a particular field. doesn’t garutee common sense….How in God’s name could you not figure that out with an officer standing there to help you…
      Sad part is…applicants would come back multiple times to apply at different companies and do the same thing again…

    • An AP Englih teacher would have red lined this lightweight thesis out of existence if he/she did not fall asleep from boredom first. What have we allowed to happen to our great country? Meritocracy, no more!
      I can honestly say that this (2008 – 2016) is the first time that I feel fear for my country not pride in my country but fear for my country.

  4. What I know about the candidates has me a commmitted McCain/Palin supporter. None the less, Michelle Obama’s thesis shows a woman trying to understand the role of race in her life. She did not come across as racist & small minded.
    Her thesis definetly has an affinity for keeping the status quo, black racism, alive. She comes across as preferring to see black segregationism instead of American integration.
    But that perceived preference is muted by the general tone to the thesis which is: what happens when blacks enter an integrated social setting. That is not an outrageous question to ask.
    The results seem to say that integration is the normal result.

    • Originally, blacks (in power) encouraged integration with whites.
      Michelle has pushed her race back 40 years plus with her remarks. In addition, the topic of her study is so trite, that it is amazing that tax payer dollars paid for this trash! What do you expect when Chicago politics mix with Princeton liberal thought?

  5. After reading this today and considering the 20 years spent with the Rev. J. Wright, my conclusion of the Obama’s is that they are both racist.

    Racism comes in all colors. I surely don’t want this taken into the White House.

    As a Democrat, the choice for me would have been Hillary Rodham Clinton, but now I will vote for John McCain. A man of honor, to all Americans and our Country.

  6. She keeps using the words predominantly white. Well African Americans are a minority correct? So unless you are in an all black college, it’s a given that the college is predominantly white. If she spent more time helping people and less time worrying about color and status, she could accomplish a lot more. We can learn from the past but it’s foolish to dwell.

  7. My question to Michelle.
    Why do you want to help the poor black people so much more than the poor white people. Why not just give all your money to the very poor?
    Forget about the past. Live in the now. Change the way you think.
    Don’t change America.

  10. There are gaps in the thesis, does that mean this is a censored copy? People who vote for “change” must be careful what they wish for. What I see from these two will be complete collapse of our freedoms with more taxes and government intrusion into our lives.

    If a conservative wrote about this subject, there would such an uproar by the liberal press.

  12. It is very clear that this issue weighed heavily on her mind. I am also sure that it was always at the forefront of her husband’s mind. What strikes me funny is that her husband Barack, is half white. That fact was not nearly promoted enough during the entire campaign. It is obvious which group the Obamas identify the most with. It also obvious which one of Barack’s backgrounds was leveraged to his advantage throughout this race. Saying this, whether I agree with his political views or not, I am glad that he one the race as a glass ceiling has now been shattered! His accomplishment should remove this contrast in the future as it is an advantage that can no longer be leveraged!

  13. What about the Arab part of Obama’s gene pool? He is only a little more than 6 percent Black. The whole black issue is one of a welfare state pushed on blacks throughout generations and also one of well educated blacks like Michelle who live with a big chip on her shoulder. There are more reasons for so many black babies without fathers and for a high percentage of black men in prison. When most babies born to blacks are to unwed mothers, it is not the fault of white, blue eyed citizens. When black men are in prison, it is not because they are profiled, it is because they are caught. Get real people. Get an education. Use a condom if not married. Get a job. Get off drugs. Be responsible.

  14. I think everyone is forgetting that this Thesis is from 1985. How old was this college student in 1985? 21 years of age.

    I would like to address angrynana. “The whole black issue….” The whole black issue is white people (yes, I said it white people). White people are always spouting forget the past, moved on. BE RESPONSIBLE! Well, when are you going to be reponsible for your actions, what you have done.

    Less, than 50 years ago Eugene “Bull” Connor, used high-pressure water jets and police dogs to control black protestors. Who is going to be responsible for that? Who is going to be responsible for the lack of educational equality for minorities. When the tides change and whites are the poor minorities, what then?

    So, do you think only blacks are in jail, pregnant and on drugs. You don’t know any whites on drugs, uneducated and in jail (some for blowing up schools, or shooting them up). Even, though studies and the news predict Blacks tragic downfall as part of this country…if you look thru eyes wide open you will see that Blacks have made great strides inspite of the torture they have endured. Please, recognize that the African American race is a phenomenal race and a compliment to this country.

    Just like YOUR President. Again, Michelle Obama was 21 in 1985 when she attended Princeton.

    • Gee, jjacki3 – Did uou mean Eugene “Bull” Conner, the DEMOCRAT? Funny how when you leftists point to America’s “racist” past, you always neglect to mention that it was YOUR party who was engaged in most of the racism and continues to fan the flames today. The whole race issue is Democrats (yes, I said it – Democrats). It was Democrats who started a civil war to keep black people enslaved. It was Democrats who established the KKK to keep blacks in fear. After Republicans adopted constitutional amendments to guarantee black rights, it was Democrats who passed jim crow laws to keep them from voting. It was Democrats such as KKK member and Senator Robert Byrd who attempted to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1964. After losing that battle, Democrats switched gears and enslaved blacks by handing them welfare crumbs to buy their vote. Democrats have been peddling soft racism for years by telling minorities that they are too inept to make it on their own. They need government assistance, because they are too stupid, or too lazy, or too weak to overcome the same adversities facing ordinary middle class Americans. Democrats continue to support racist organizations such as ACORN, which keeps blacks enslaved to drugs by paying voter registration personnel with crack cocaine. There is no level to which Demcrats will not sink in order to keep the black vote at the end of a short leash. It is not America who needs to apologise for the past. It is not whites who need to apologise for the past. It is not Republicans who need to apologise for the past. It is overwhelmingly DEMOCRATS who need to apologise for the past. Stop trying to drag the rest of us into the bed that you made. Our sins are buried at Arlington while yours continue to multiply and decay what little soul you have left.

The english stole their land. America was theirs so really none of us have a right to say anything unless you are in fact a native american or indian or whatever name you wanna come up with. So really if you wanna get down to it none of us deserve America or anything else. We have all just kept on and on worrying about things that are not important we have forgotten what is important.

  17. Judge a person by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin…or has she forgotten Martin Luther King’s civil rights credo? Michelle is a racist, most obviously. Her comment during the campaign…”For the first time in my life, I am proud to be an American” is a sad testimony from a woman who lives in, what was and hopefully will be again, the greatest country in the world. She is biting the hand that feeds her with the help of 26 assistants to wait on her in the White House.

  20. Judge a person by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin. “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud to be an American”. Michelle’s thesis is truly an eye opener. I and many other Americans have had a ‘gut feel’ about Barack & Michelle Obama, and this thesis gives a look into her thinking, attitudes and character. Watching them now, with Barack out on the golf course, the family vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard and Michelle in Spain with 40 of her closest friends and arguably hundreds in her entourage, what do they think and feel now about their ‘blackness’ or in the case of Barack, his multi-racial background? They do not appear to be as concerned for the black, white, or brown poor, or any of the millions of jobless, homeless, struggling small business owners, black, white, yellow, brown, or grey (seniors). They’re too busy ‘experiencing’ the power, control, and privilege afforded them by Barack being elected on a flimsy slogan of “Hope and Change”. America is struggling to keep it’s collective head above water, folks, so how’s that ‘Hopey, Changey thang’ working for you now? My hope and prayer (yes, I have a Savior, and it’s not Barack), is that America will still be able to redeem the principles by and for which this country was founded on, historical revisionists be damned. And let’s get past the whole slavery issue; I’m part Native American Indian, and the atrocities upon that race are still evident – have you seen a typical Native American Indian reservation lately? Talk about slum lords. Alcoholism, domestic violence…sad but true. Black Americans are not the only ‘victims’ in this world – it’s a fallen world, and evil does exist. Let’s get past the ‘victimization’ and work for the common good of America, and it starts with me. Take care and God Bless.

  21. et’s not forget about the “whole slavery thing”. Let us remember it and grow and strengthen ourselves from our history. Nobody ever tells the Jews to forget the Holocaust, and they have used that as a Battle Cry for the group…”Never Again”. African Americans are not only asked to forget Slavery, to forget The Civil Rights Era, “We Shall Overcome”. Well we haven’t overcame yet. African Americans are the most poorly educated in America, comprise the largest percentage of prison inmates, and hell, we just ain’t doing that damn good! We need to remember, we need to relish in our strengths and our survival, we need the unity that other groups of minorities have, we need to Overcome!

    • Nobody has told African-Americans to forget the slavery issue (it happened, it passed, it’s done!), what they are trying to be told is NOT to use that as a “crutch”, yes, I said it, a CRUTCH. As a hispanic female, I can tell you that nobody is more appalled about racism as I am (there is native american (of our region), African, Spanish, English, etc) in our blood, but when we speak out, apparently, we don’t have a voice or vote or don’t even understand what “blacks” go through. As for education, there is no “Hispanic” group that would grant us easier access to Universities or Colleges, there is no UNCF that “helps” us get into college. We pay just like everyone else, via student loans or grants. If young black men and women do not go to college, it is not because they are not given the opportunity, it’s because they do not want to go… If a person goes to prison (white, hispanic, black, etc), it’s not because they were “framed”, but because they CHOSE to go due to their actions or inactions.
      What I believe the black community is guilty of is “living in the past”. We cannot change what happened years ago, but if we continue to live in the past, how can we change our present and future? We are ALL guilty of doing this (I am referring to the different cultures), but if we continue do so, what is the legacy that we leave for our children? That “white” people are bad? That “black” people are victimized? How about, regardless of your culture, (NOT race, for we are all a part of the “human race”) we seek to enrich and grow in the present despite what others have us believing about our past.

  23. The nasty race card has been played faithfully, continuously, repeatedly in the White House since George Washington sat in Office in his powdered wig, all the way up until now when Obama made history in being the first Black president of this country.

    And that just royally p/sses people off. So the backlash has been and is tremendously venomous and absolutely senseless.

    There is nothing wrong with this paper by Michelle Obama. There is nothing wrong or shameful for a person to choose to study his/her own culture and heritage within a nation of diverse cultures.

    The attitudes towards people of color in this country, such as the blacks and Native Americans, is shameful. On the one hand if black people or the natives try to rise up above the oppression, the whites get all bent out of shape just like they are doing right now towards the Obamas… Yet if these oppressed races don’t try to rise up, evolve, make changes they’re condemned and looked down upon by races who believe themselves to be more superior, which is usually the white race, and they’re treated with disdain.

    It’s like Peoples of Color are da/mned if they do and they’re da/mned if they don’t. It’s pitiful really because the one thing that will always keep a nation divided is racial prejudice amongst the people.

Give a help hand and be a accused of trying to impose our own culture on someone, or give the culture space and be accused of trying to keep the man down. Take your pick. However I agree there is nothing wrong with studying your own culture and I hope it gained her insight and wisdom. I know reading it gave me a new understanding of things and raised questions I’d never thought to ask before.

We are just unfortunate that we have been saddled with a racist president and First Lady, however there is usually a rainbow at the end of a storm, and we are hoping for that blessing. There are so very many people of color that are not so hateful, we tend to dwell on them rather than Michelle and her attitude.

  25. It took her a thesis paper to figure out that educated people will identify more with other educated people than with uneducated people? This isn’t a racial issue, it is a general human issue. If you play basketball all your life, you’re going to identify more with other people that play basketball than with people that play badminton, aren’t you?

  27. I agree that Michelle Obama missed the whole point that those adults
    who are more educated will gravitate toward others who share similar life styles and economic/ educational status whether it be through work or community activities no matter what racial culture you were exposed to during your formative years. A well educated black or white person unlikely would ever associate with a very impoverished black or white person on a social level. They are in completly different circles of society in general.

  29. We have all said things and wrote things we have later came to regret. Maybe Michelle Obama still feels the way she did when she was constructing that paper 27 years ago. Maybe she doesn’t. Only she knows that. In the meantime, we have ALL had prejudices and views of our own that have changed, evolved, or disappeared over time. I would probably shudder at the views and thoughts I had when I was 21. THANK GOODNESS that time allows for all of us to gather wisdom and change our minds..

  41. I,myself, had to write a critique of this paper as an assignment in my college Social Work program. 1989 ish. I wrote at the time that I found the author to be racist and the paper to be disorganized and rambling. I received a failing grade for that assignment, (I had a 4.0 at the time) , and was told that Blacks could not be racist, because they did not control the institutions. I was also refereed to the Dean of Social Work, a black woman, who told me that a “white girl like me from the Suburbs” would not be allowed for further study in the MSW program, and would not make a very good social worker, because I didn’t understand the issues of the black community. I absolutely hate this paper, but it did save me from a life of being conflicted in the world of Social Work.

    • As I finish reading your post, I am completely baffled on the “racism” the dean of social work had expressed in those days. When she stated that a “white girl like me from the Suburbs”, could not understand, she displayed her racism towards caucasian students. I guess the only culture that can be called “racist” are caucasians and the only victims are “blacks”.
      Sadly, we see this every day in our daily lives. I hope you found the area of studies and work where you are rewarded for your actions and not the color of your skin.

  46. I came from a very poor lower class background and I am white. And after growing older and realizing that I have to build whatever future for me, myself, and not blame my parents bad mistakes and repeating them. Wow! Lots of regrets and mistakes have been made by me. But I will say this with total clarity; of I stay away from trashy poor white people and the mistakes or culture or whatever someone might want to call it that keep them there, then I changed more to the better and see it for what it is. I am not poor now, and I see myself as an American and truly don’t care what color a person is as long as they do not blame their mistakes on me because I am white. Mrs. Obama would be well advised to lose the I’m black attitude and concentrate on am am the First Lady of The United States and realize she is representing us all whether we voted for Obama or not. That would go far in building a better country for all Americans.

  48. Hmm… scholarships to Ivy League colleges for her and her hubby. He is the first black POTUS, and she the first black FLOTUS with world class perks, including taking multimillion dollar vacations on our dime, and the racist bimbo is STILL playing the race card…

    I guess if it weren’t for her hubby’s massive failures in all phases of the presidency, she’d be able to play something OTHER than the race card…

  49. Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal on a
    daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for
    brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  58. I understand what Michelle Obama is saying. She is saying likeness gravitates towards likeness. This is called preference not prejudice. She is saying she feels alone because she is black in a white college and wonders if other blacks feel alone. She writes about blacks hanging with whites and if they do will they ignore their culture, answer maybe yes and maybe no. This I find interesting because I thought our concept for Unites States was integration and not separation. You can’t have both so maybe that train of thought should be checked and re-visited. If a black can show other blacks that whites and blacks can be equal by mingling why question that atmosphere. What should be questioned is why it bothers you.

  59. I am only going to talk about the paper. I’m not interested in the Affirmative Action points of view. I am not interested in the political meaning of the paper. Mechanics and structure only. There is no way she would have graduated from my program with a thesis like this, and I went to a State school. She wrote roughly sixty pages and had only EIGHT sources? That’s a lot of conjecture. My thesis was a little over sixty pages and I had eight PAGES of sources with over one hundred footnotes and I could’ve added more. My first reader wanted more. Secondly, she quoted the dictionary. That is the equivalent of quoting Wikipedia, and an instant “F” at my school. Then the grammar… Oh the grammar… We are talking about Princeton here, right? Princeton. Were there rough drafts? I wonder how many drafts were written. Then I think of Professor Wallace. If this paper was meant to help the black community, then why did he allow for these errors? I would think he would want the paper as pristine as possible if it were truly represented something. I’m still shocked this was Princeton. Princeton.

  64. I have waited 8 yrs. to read this. Stumbled upon it today as the Obama’s are ending their tenure in the White House. We were told when she and her husband entered as President and First Lady that this thesis would be sealed until she left her position so I am astonished to see that some responses came as early as 2009.. Why were we told this would not be unsealed until she left the position? Actually, I was not surprised by anything Michelle wrote and actually, I did not find it to be so anti’white as just a summary about black/white society. I did not find it so mentally stimulating as some said. She basically was writing a thesis in her last year at Princton which is required to graduate. She did not really state her own thoughts as much as other view points. In closing I am glad they are ending a very devisive 8 yrs. as our First Family. I look forward to the change our country will be coming into in 2017.

    • An AP Englih teacher would have red lined this lightweight thesis out of existence if he/she did not fall asleep from boredom first. What have we allowed to happen to our great country? Meritocracy, no more!
      I can honestly say that this (2008 – 2016) is the first time that I feel fear for my country not pride in my country but fear for my country

  67. Michelle Obama’s Princeton College Thesis came onto me as an extremely Racial person towards the White communities. I personally believe that both Michelle and Barack Obama are “major” Leaders of this Racial problem that we have Today. Racialism did not become this strong until Barack Obama became President. I also believe that the Obamas divided the Black and White communities a great deal more than they already were.
