Let's start with Michelle Obama.
Look at Michelle Obama.The attacks on our fabulous goddess of a FLOTUS from Republikkkans (and white Amerikkkans in general) is no secret, nor is the consistent sound of crickets from white feminists whenever she's attacked for, you know, breathing. I mean, she really gets under their skin.
Any of those white men who trash her probably lay in bed at night burning with need for her…and they know it.
Sensenbrenner may appear disgusted with the First Lady’s campaign, but he could be secretly checking her out. He sees that big butt and wants that junk in the trunk. He imagines himself behind that ass and riding it. However, he can not admit it because not only would he invite a lot of unwanted press, but he will incite a possible, unfriendly confrontation with the President.

And it's perfectly understandable when you think about it: she's educated; she rose from poverty, defied obstacles, and became a great success; she has this beautiful skin that you're either born with or you're not; and oh yeah...she's married to this guy:
So the loathing is not only understandable, but quite expected.
I'll be honest; I've long stopped flinching at the broadsides leveled at this woman. It's so obvious where they stem from: lust and envy, two of the seven deadly sins. Hatorade only comes in one flavor, contrary to popular belief, so the "it's not because she's Black" bullshit is summarily dismissed.
Now let's talk abortion.
The Republikkkan obsession with Black women and abortion is another one of those non-secrets which I'll admit, I've dismissed.
Let's be real. Rich white conservatives don't give two shits about Black children. "Comedienne" Lisa Lampinelli referred to a Black woman with five abortions as a "crime-fighter" and the audience didn't promptly kick her ass. This move against Black women having abortions is strictly politically motivated. 1) They want to appear concerned about poor Black women and children, and 2) it's all about control. Saddle a single, sometimes uneducated woman with children she doesn't want and can't afford, and right there you have a family destined to struggle.
And then these Republikkkans act like we don't already know all this.
After decades of having the welfare queen stereotype shoved in our faces, some Black women have decided to not give birth to kids they know they can't support. Sometimes it's because they know that the father - regardless of his color - is a total deadbeat, or he's abusive, or he's someone they simply wouldn't mind avoiding for the rest of their lives. Sometimes it's because - shocker of shockers - the woman in question really doesn't want to raise kids, and vows to be a lot more careful in the future.
But regardless of the Black woman's reason, that's one less child being born into a less than favorable situation. This gives the woman more time to focus on herself, to work on her own issues. She might even decide to go back to school. If she's educated, she can focus on getting a better job, saving up more money, and doing all those other things TPTB would simply prefer Black women didn't do.
Which of course, means less Black kids for cops to use as punching bags and target practice, less Black kids to humiliate and devalue, less Black families shackled by financial strain, and more Black women left free to explore the world and focus on themselves.
God...no wonder the Republikkkans are so worried.
