Oh, good grief. Enough with the essay answers. Blah, blah, blah. Because YOU are always championing under-appreciated strong black women and blubbering about Mother Africa I'd think that you wouldn't be so clueless in regard to the ironic overtones that dim this shining moment of triumph. Once again Fate has cast a white woman in the goddess role - as the "Virginal Mary" who gave birth to the savior. And Michelle, of course, has been marginalized. Po sistahs jes cain't catch a break. GET IT???

And I didn't inject Toni Morrison into this observation. I just pointed out that, contrary to Chrishayden's claim, "Invisible Man" was not written during the 1940s.
