The Truth About Michelle Obama's 'Working Class' Credentials

by Sharon Churcher - February 23rd, 2008 - Daily Mail (London)

"For the past year (she and Barack) have jetted around the country with Oprah Winfrey and Robert De Niro, enjoying penthouse parties and living the high life," he said.

Perhaps, when she contrasts her current red-carpet lifestyle with the unassuming world of South Euclid Avenue, she genuinely may think that her childhood was impoverished. And the one thing that is certain about the incredible Mrs O is that she never intends to have to live that way again.

This is a very interesting article about the childhood of Michelle Obama. It helps to explain the class and race warfare rhetoric of someone who has nevertheless personally attained so much wealth. The total contrast with her personal success in a nation that rewards hard work while she remains so fervently bitter about that same nation is a microcosm of the dichotomy in modern race relations.
