White Feminism privilege denying FLOTUS edition.

The above are screen caps of tweeets made by CodePink and their cofounder Medea Benjamin after Michelle Obama was confronted by a protester named Ellen Sturtz from the pro- LGBT group Get EQUAL. 

After the incident was reported to happen, tweets like the above started to be made playing into racist tropes by framing FLOTUS as an “angry black woman” and telling her how she should have responded plays into respectability politics.

Your white privilege is showing feminists. Just stop and think what would have happened if Laura Bush did the same thing. Yeah that’s what I thought.
