Michelle Obama An Angry Black Woman

Michelle Obama An Angry Black Woman

Following the release of a new book about the Presidential family, The Obamas, first lady Michelle Obama is upset that she has been portrayed as an “angry black woman.”

In an interview with CBS This Morning, Obama said, “I guess it’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and — you know? But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I’m some angry black woman.”

New York Times reporter and author of The Obamas, Jodi Cantor, re-touched the “angry black woman” theme in her book, writing that there was tension between the First Lady and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and with former Presidential Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. Obama denies the reports.

“Rahm is, and Amy, his wife, are some of our dearest friends,” Obama said. “Rahm and I have never had a cross word. He’s a funny guy.”

The first lady said in the interview that she did not understand how a book like Cantor’s could be written, because it does not represent how she really feels.

“Who can write about how I feel? Who? What third person can tell me how I feel, or anybody for that matter?” she asked.
