Like Michelle Obama, I have also been asked to help retrieve an item from the top shelf of a store.
While it was not a Target Store as in the her case, it was a grocery store. In fact, now that I think about it, I’ve been asked to do this many times in my life.
You see, Michelle and I share something.
Aside from both of us being around 6′ tall since middle school, and both of us apparently resembling First Ladies, we both are victims of Racism.
I feel her pain.
I know… I’m a Middle Aged White Guy…
But that changes nothing.
It’s clear the little old lady that asked me to help her had nothing but Racism on her mind. (Not the jar of capers she couldn’t reach. And… only racists eat capers anyway.)
So, it happened just exactly like the person who supposedly asked the First Lady to help them retrieve whatever it was they asked her to help them retrieve from the top shelf. Racism Pure and Simple! How could it be anything else? (Although, She might have had bad eyesight… which could explain why she thought I was Michelle Obama… and I was running around the store telling people what groceries they should be allowed to buy. It should also be noted that I was not surrounded by plain clothes Secret Service Agents, not that anyone would notice… in a Target… )
So there you have it.
Just another True Story of Racism in today’s United States.
You are all horrible people.
Not me though… I’m just drunk.
(And Hey! If you’re out there you little old racist lady, I’m NOT the First Lady of the United States! Get a ladder!)
