Ann Coulter reacts to First Lady Michelle Obama's remarks on racism in her commencement address at Tuskegee University over the weekend.
ANN COULTER: I think she's just letting out her Reverend Wright now. You know, a week before this, I'm really glad you played the segment of her saying it was the first time in her life she's proud of her country, and then she's indignant that people might think she doesn't love her country.
Last week, she was claiming museums discriminate against, aren't welcoming to minorities. What do they have to do, be even freer? What are museums doing?
And you know, I think it is what you were saying, this is -- and I wrote a book about this. This is exactly as I predicted. We had finally got rid of a lot of this racial demagoguery in response to the O.J. verdict, and Obama and his enablers and the left-wing media have brought it back in order to gin up and keep a certain segment of the black community angry and voting against Republicans.
But I think they've opened up a beast they're not going to be able to control now. And who -- who is victimized the most by the predator class among -- in the black community? Of course, other blacks. Law-abiding blacks don't like this.
As I've written before, talk to any prosecutor. They -- the jurors they seek are married blacks or blacks with jobs. This nonsense about, Oh, the peaceful protesters -- no, I want a milk carton ad for, has anyone seen a peaceful protester in Baltimore, as if, you know, workaday blacks are rushing out to protest Freddie Gray. No, they aren't!
This all comes from illegitimacy. It is to cover up their problem in subsidizing illegitimacy, and that is the most unfortunate part of this. By keep -- by harping on white racism, white racism, white racism, no one notices, oh, the black illegitimacy rate before the Great Society programs was about 20 percent...
Twenty percent! It's above 70 percent now. And that just breeds a predator class. In my book, "Mugged (ph)" I quoted a liberal institute, the Urban Institute. They said if you take out the factor of illegitimacy, the defense in the black and white and black crime rate disappears. This is all a question of illegitimacy creating a predator class that mostly is attacking hard-working black people with jobs.
