(If you believe that, I have some beachfront property in Idaho to sell you).
Yesterday, the First Lady and Dr. Jill Biden (wife of Vice President Joe Biden) were grand marshals at a NASCAR race in Miami. I know what you're thinking,
"What were they doing at a NASCAR race to begin with?"
I know, I thought the same thing.
They were there on behalf of their husbands to honor our troops and their families.
No big deal, right?
THIS is what happened when they were introduced:
Before you get too upset, here's what you need to understand. NASCAR is home to the most racist fans in sports. They openly fly the confederate flag at races. They think of people like Hank Williams Jr. as one of their own. They are just a different type of people.
I know that.
You know that.
But apparently the First Lady's people don't. Or if they do, they were too naive' to think this group of people wouldn't boo the first black First Lady in this country's history.
Where is Desiree' Rogers when you need her?
I'm sure Desiree' would have said (with an attitude),
"NASCAR? Oh......Hell naw. The First Lady ain't doing NASCAR."
But since Desiree' is no longer handling business for the First Lady, let me give her handlers some advice.
(because I know they check out The Board Room)
What? They DO check out The Board Room.
Here's the advice:
The next time you want to have the First Lady honor our troops and their families, bring her to a HBCU football classic.
As a matter fact, here's a personal invitation for the First Lady to come to Birmingham next year
for the largest and most popular black football game in the country, The Magic City Classic.
That way, you won't have the First Lady sitting around looking like this:
Memo to the First Lady:
Hire more competent advisors QUICK!
