While listening to Michelle's commencement address at Bowie State University, one word immediately came to mind; Hubris (often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power).
If you were to read an anonymous transcript of her speech, you would assume it was given by conservative because it decries all of the liberal values and programs which have destroyed our educational system and placed blacks in the bondage of the welfare state.
She goes on to say "please stand up and reject the slander that says a black child with a book is trying to act white". It's the liberal tenets of multi-culturalism and diversification which have encouraged blacks to associate traditional speech, dress, behavior, and good grades in school as being "white", or "uncle Tom", and deterring such positive behavior or achievement through negative peer pressure.
She and her husband are perpetuating the very things which prevent black achievement.
