White Americans are “still running” elsewhere when minorities and immigrants move into their communities, Michelle Obama observed Tuesday.
The former first lady made the remarks at the Obama Foundation Summit, held at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.
In a sit-down interview with journalist Isabel Wilkerson, in which Obama was accompanied by her brother, Craig Robinson, an executive with the NBA’s New York Knicks, Obama described when she first became conscious of what’s been called “white flight.”
“We were doing everything we were supposed to do – and better,” Obama said of her family, recalling when they got a new address on Chicago’s South Side. “But when we moved in, white families moved out.
“I want to remind white folks that y’all were running from us,” she continued, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “And you’re still running.”
When white “folks” start moving INTO predominately black neighborhoods the locals call it “gentrification” and they oppose it.
Why do white folks take flight when black people move into their neighborhoods? I dunno, but it might have something to do with recreational activities in the inner city ghettos like the “Knockout Game” and “Pin the Tail on the Honky.”
OTOH, if I was built like Mooch I wouldn’t be afraid of anybody. This is your WOOT.
