Michelle Obama 'Fears' Her Daughters Will Be Treated Differently for Being Black
Former first lady uses children to push more race politics
Former First Lady Michelle Obama said she is concerned for her daughters being treated differently because they are black.
During an interview on CBS’s “This Morning,” host Gayle King noted that 22-year-old Malia Obama is graduating college.
Obama said, although she is “excited” to see Malia enter the next chapter of her life, she was worried she would be treated differently for being black.
“[Sasha and Malia are] driving,” Obama stated.
“But every time they get in a car by themselves, I worry about what assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them.
"The fact that they are good students and polite girls, but maybe they’re playing their music a little loud, maybe somebody sees the back of their head and makes an assumption."
"I, like so many parents of black kids, have to — the innocent act of getting a license puts fear in our hearts," she continued.
"So, I am excited, but I’d like to be more excited to know that as she gets her first apartment and rides the subway somewhere that they don’t make assumptions about her based on the color of her skin, that she’s not at risk out there in the world as an adult because she’s a black woman."

Earlier this year, race-baiting Obama backed Meghan Markle's claims of "racism" within the British Royal Family, saying it was “not a complete surprise."
Markle claimed that a Royal Family member asked about the possible darkness of her son’s skin.
The Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry, accused an unidentified royal of being racist about their son Archie.
“I could never understand how it wouldn’t be seen as an added benefit and a reflection of the world today, especially right now, to go how inclusive is that that you can see someone who looks like you in this family, much less someone who was born into it."
“I feel like that was heartbreaking to hear, that she felt like she was in her own family — her own family thought differently of her.”
