I guess it's more interesting to imagine.
This conflicting situation here and a strong woman and you know but that's been an image that people tried to paint of me since the end of the day you -- announced that -- some angry.
I was -- -- Jenkins former miss Louisiana known attorney.
So I I.
What do you think Michelle Obama is disturbed bot what what is bothering her about this latest round off this book.
I think she's disturbed by me angry black one description which he brought I hadn't seen that anywhere else Mitt mrs.

In the months leading up to the presidential election there were several high profile individuals they use certain worse describe Michelle Obama.
They tended to inflict pain that she was a part of the stereotype of an angry black one.
They caught her style black we'll take a -- was bitter and angry.
They say she seemed to have a chip on her shoulder and you with the new -- and there you see all this as it is code of four.
A a cliche yes OK are you -- are you angry are you.
Are you an angry woman.

He is a state like it's not just a woman who represents that it is a -- not -- -- that -- -- women in leadership positions.
-- told you were being to outspoken -- Nancy you hit it isn't about color -- all women get that.
Be all all women can hit anyone can be described as angry but this -- somehow attaches to black women.

Your -- as has -- aware or has she gotten past that.
I including 2008 was crucial because her image was being developed -- but now now and 2012 I I don't see it anymore I think she's widely accepted in the polls say that people like.
Well some people like her I think you like her -- -- -- and she would she's in the sixties his approval shuts off the too big that he normally when you -- if you go in with it a lot of people who talk about her.
In the blocks on the iPod and I'm not I'm not you know -- lives.
But I'm talking about how to get around me how many people now you bet anything way to describe -- and I think it started in 2000 Jenkins.
