Michelle Obama’s podcast is a real downer.
Instead of being a happy/positive beacon of hope and strength, Michelle is a huge bummer. She’s always complaining about her family, her kids, and her country.
She also is working overtime to push division. Everything is about “race” and how systematically racist America is.
It’s puzzling because this woman was the first Black FLOTUS – her husband was elected twice by the American people, yet Michelle comes off as so angry and bitter.

On the finale of her new podcast, Michelle and her family (brother and mother) discussed an incident that helped shape Michelle’s belief that being black is a crime in America.
She told the story about how her brother was stopped by two police officers who falsely accused him of stealing the bike he was riding. She goes through the story and talks about how impactful it was on her in a “racial” way, and then at the end of this story, her mother pipes up and says the two officers were black.

According to People Magazine, the season finale of the “Michelle Obama Podcast” featured a round table of Obama’s family members discussing Obama’s childhood growing up on the south side of Chicago. As part of the discussion, Michelle Obama and her brother, basketball coach Craig Robinson, recounted an incident where a 10-year-old Craig was confronted by two Chicago police officers who accused him of stealing his own bike.
Obama recalled that “he was riding down the street on the yellow two-wheeler when the police stopped him and accused him of stealing the bike,” the New York Daily News noted. “He brought the cops back to his Chicago home to prove the bike was his, Obama, 56, said.”
“It was terrifying only because I was always taught that the police are your friends and they’ll believe the truth,” Robinson recalled. “I was telling them the truth and this guy would not believe me.”
Robinson eventually asked the police to bring him home, where his mother could prove the bike was his.
“I was absolutely heartbroken,” he said, “And I finally said to him, ‘Listen, you can take me to my house and I will prove to you this is my bike.’”
The police officers then put Robinson into the back of a police car and drove him home where his mother, Marian Robinson, confirmed the bike was his.
Marian Robinson added some details to the story, including that both police officers who confronted the 10-year-old Robinson were black. She says she lectured the pair on how they “canceled out” what she had been teaching her children about interactions with police.
Michelle Obama saw things a bit differently. She. told. her audience that the bike incident with her brother actually reinforced that there was systemic racism in policing and it was a “pervasive and persistent problem.”
“Nobody thinks about the fact that we all come from good families that are trying to teach values,” Michelle said. “But when you leave the safety of your home and go out into the street, where being Black is a crime in and of itself, we have all had to learn how to operate outside of our homes with a level of caution and fear because you never know.”
