The former first lady sat down for a discussion with Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday. …
Obama also emphasized the importance of diversity in Congress, after noticing the inequities existing while serving as first lady.
“Usually at the State of the Union address, what you see is this real dichotomy. On one side of the room, it’s a feeling of color. On one side of the room, it’s gray and white. On the other side of the room, there’s yellows and blues and greens,” she recalled. “One side, all men, all white. On the other side, some women and people of color. Whenever I was sitting … I looked at that and thought, ‘No wonder people don’t trust politics. We’re not even noticing what these rooms look like.’”
Do you kinda get the impression that Michelle sees the world largely in terms of colorful clothes? Looking at the world primarily in terms of fashion is not the worst way to go through life, but it is pretty funny when you finally notice it.
Not people of color
