Stoking the Black Vote: First lady Michelle Obama takes swipe Trump giving college commencement


I pointed out on a prior post that Michelle Obama sought out the most-less White collage to stoke up the Black vote for the general election. 
Its Democrat politics 101—cry racism and the Black vote comes tumbling in on Election Day.  That’s all pretty much Democrats have to do and nothing else gets done as their policies make conditions worse in the Black community.
Fox News reports First lady Michelle Obama on Friday jumped into election-year politics by criticizing leaders who engage in “name calling … anger and intolerance,” a clear reference to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Obama made the remarks in a commencement speech at City College of New York, in Harlem, praising the school for having a diverse student body, which she said “some folks” fail to value.  
"They seem to view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than as a resource to be tapped," she said. "They tell us to be afraid of those who are different, to be suspicious of those with whom we disagree.”
She also said Americans “don't build up walls to keep people out because we know that our greatness has always depended on contributions from people who were born elsewhere but sought out this country and made it their home."
