Michelle Obama the first lady of United States of America recently became the central dogma of bitter criticism from the media as well as from the key board warriors on the forever active social media. Michelle Obama recently gave a spectacular speech at the Democratic National convention in Philadelphia which initiated a wild fire and made critics to come out of their hibernation. The first lady said in her speech that:
“That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.”
This statement turned out to be a nightmare for Trump supporters but if we see this from the historical prospective it is somehow correct .Well making such a statement in a country which is obsessed with the delusion of self-proclaimed superior race; does required some guts.
When construction of the White House started back in 1792, geographically it was located between slave states of Virginia and Maryland, this implies that the labor force which is required for construction was composed of enslaved people and free blacks (local resident), not to mention the white labor from the close vicinity and immigrants from Ireland and Scotland. So facts are true.
