This is a video showing First Lady Michelle Obama being booed at a NASCAR race in Florida. It’s ignorant behavior, but not necessarily for the reasons many seem to be suggesting.
I think this is being blown out of proportion somewhat. In the U.K. we openly boo our politicians if we don’t like them including the Prime Minister. But in the U.S. there is generally a lot more respect for the President. For some strange reason.
I guess the controversy is over the fact that this was in the south and Michelle Obama is obviosly African American. But I doubt the color of her skin had anything whatsoever to do with it.
Let’s face it, the United States, like every other country in the world (bar Germany and China) is in financial difficulties. And this is a reaction to that. It’s still stupid, however, as most of the problems were sewn before Barack Obama became president.
