Mrs. Obama was hoping to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, which struck down segregation in schools. And what better way to honor the anniversary of integrated schools than telling the nation’s first black first lady you don’t want her to speak at your high school graduation?
That’s’ what the parents and students did at a high school in Topeka, Kansas. The parents and students went so far as to circulate a petition asking the school administration to reconsider having the first lady speak. So far, over 1,700 people have signed this petition.
The reason being, the parents feel the first lady will outshine their students on their special day, I say it’s racism what do you think?
