: MediaTakeOut.com just got wind of an article published in the very QUESTIONABLE New York Magazine
about the “upper class” black culture in Martha’s Vineyard.
According to the article’s author, many of the bourgeois Blacks in Martha’s Vineyard are upset that Barack and Michelle Obama are coming to the island. Apparently they have “too much class” to share their little island with the most powerful and influential couple ON THE PLANET.
But what’s more upsetting about the silly article, published by journalist Toure, is that he put a very RECKLESS quote in it – with one black woman calling Michelle ‘ghetto.’ Here is the exact quote:
“Obama is more a man of the people,” says a Vineyarder who’s part of black high society. “He doesn’t seem to identify with affluent black people. His wife definitely doesn’t; she is basically a ghetto girl. That’s what she says—I’m just being sociological. She grew up in the same place Jennifer Hudson did. She hasn’t reached out to the social community of Washington, and people are waiting to see what they’ll do about that.”
Toure should be ashamed for allowing that quote about our first lady to be published in an article … just ASHAMED!!! Whatever respect for dude that we ever had is officially GONE!!
