Thank you Michelle Obama??????

I was at a bar having wine time with a client yesterday (yes I love my job) when I was approached by this gorgeous white male. I have dated primarily all white men, not by choice but because that's all I attract, this particular guy was that white business, distinguished but looked like he could have a good time type of guy. And his body looked priceless in his suit. DADDY!! YUM! As I sipped on my wine I looked over and gazed his way as he asked if he could buy me another glass. I smiled and said, "No, I'm ok. I'm heading back to my office." I wasn't giving him the cold shoulder, nor was I giving him an invite to to ask me out. I could admire him without wanting him right? Ok, my mind was drifting into an exciting scene of adventure and hot passionate, wild bumping uglies but then he opened his mouth. He leaned over and whispered, "Since Michelle Obama came along, a lot of my friends and I are curious about what it would be like to have a black woman in our lives." WHAT! I couldn't believe my ears. Now all of a sudden this white gorgeous man is telling me black woman are desirable because of Michelle Obama? So, is it now IN to walk down the street holding the arm of a black woman because Michelle Obama stands strong as an accomplished black woman who is praised by her husband as part of the key to his success? Have we, the black female become the trophy to white men, how the white women have become the trophy and sign of accomplishment for our black men all these years? Or are we just a fad that will fade like when we were in elementary and said, "Light skinned is in." Or even worse, are white men curious about how we are in bed? Something to think about.

Thank you Michelle Obama????
