Did Iman Diss Michelle Obama?Published by Runteldat on Monday, May 18, 2009 at 12:00 am.
What’s got them ready to kick Iman out of the race?
‘Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty,” Iman says, startling me a bit. “But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age.”
Now correct me if I’m wrong here, but Iman is essentially saying that while Michelle is no “great beauty,” she’s intelligent and that’s what matters most because beauty fades.
Why are people offended that a person who’s built a career on the superficial acknowledging that beauty fades and intelligence will get you much further?
A person who herself has acknowledged that she’s “average” in comparison to the woman from her home country of Somalia.
I like President Obama and the First Lady as much as the next person, but some people to act like he’s the Jesus Remix and that Michelle ought to be treated like her name is Our Lady of Southside Chicago.
It’s becoming oddly similiar to the Bush zealots of yesteryears. I doubt Michelle Obama even cares.
Iman could have kept that to herself, but do you feel what she said is insulting?
