From Huffington Post, via the Columbia Journalism Review:
Wanda Sykes made fun of the media skirting the race issue when talking about Michelle Obama during an appearance on Leno Wednesday night…
Sykes says the media didn’t know how to cover her.
“There are little subtle ways they dance around the race issue,” Sykes told Leno. “‘When are we going to see the real Michelle Obama?’ And you know what they’re saying… They’re waiting for her to throw all his stuff on the White House lawn… They’re waiting for Weezy to jump out.”
Weezy being Louise Jefferson of the 1970s sitcom The Jeffersons. But, I thought it was Clair Huxtable everyone was waiting for?
When she said “Weezy” for some reason I thought of Lil Wayne, not the character from The Jeffersons. But I’m pretty sure it’s SOMEONE’S narrow-minded fear that Young Weezy will be at the White House — chains, tats and all — letting Sasha and Malia braid his hair on the south lawn while they have a tea party with their My Little Ponies and Jonas Bros. dolls.
Oh, and he’ll be high. It’ll enhance the My Little Pony experience and someone will serve him caviar and chitlins from official White House china. As Michael Steele would say, “Best believe it. Word to your grandmothers, and what not.”
