The Michelle Obama Mandate by Celli Pitt
I should be writing, but this is too good not to share. I honestly am more of a fan of Michelle than Barack, so this resonated with me immediately. It’s penned by Celli Pitt.
Let it be known that November 5th is now the Michelle Obama Federal Holiday!
You both have inspired me and given me new hope in my community, in my people, in my humanity, and undoubtedly in my blackness!!
Sisters and Brothers, the true gift of this election is validation and vindication of Black Womanhood!!
Everyone take note:
Barack has done himself and us a great service by marrying Michelle Obama.
Thank you Michelle for being strong and not diluting your strength.
Thank you Michelle for being highly intelligent and not dumbing down yourself.
Thank you for not starving yourself and not lipo’ing your curves away to fit “standards” that are not authentically yours.
Thank you Michelle for helping to make a great Man Greater.
Thank you Michelle for showing us that intelligence is the True Sexy– bling and oiled biceps can’t compete!
Thank you Michelle for speaking your mind and not allowing that ugly “bitch/angry black woman” label to fertilize itself– thanks for killing it on the vine.
Thank you Michelle for keeping your South Side flavor & roots while upgrading yourself and your community.
Thank you Michelle for showing us that we can have it all– maybe not all the same way or at the same time– but we can indeed have it all.
Thank you Michelle for showing my nieces, female cousins, and all of us women who are trying to do our part in our own skin– that we are more than fine, we are Excellent people who shouldn’t settle and deserve the BEST that life has to offer– unapologetically. We are wothy. Period.
Thank you Barack for recognizing these wonderful qualities in Michelle and crowning them with love, a ring, and a vow– not intimidation and blame!
