“An Ape in Heels” is Worth More Than an Americanized Starlet
Ezinne Ukoha

Ezinne, I really enjoyed your article on the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

I agree that “apes rule” and they are beautiful creatures. Nonetheless, the woman who posted that Michelle Obama is “an ape in heels” clearly was being derogatory. That really goes without saying. Those words are viscous and demeaning and should have no place in our society. However, I am not that naive. I am glad to know the mayor was fired. I hope the staff member that wrote those words was fired, too.

Michelle Obama is one of the most beautiful women in the world, inside and out. She exhibits grace, class, integrity, love and she is so sexy. She is a true Lady, and I am proud that she has been my First Lady for almost eight years.

I agree with a gentleman that commented on Black women being beautiful. I know that color does not define the person, but Black is beautiful.

Thank you again for your honest and thought-provoking article. I look forward to reading more of your thoughts and ideas.
