BET and "Barack Obama: What's in it for us?"

WTF was Jeff (host) thinking asking Barack why he had a black wife? That was so rude. However I do think that if he put her out on the campaign trail more often he would appeal more to African American women. Michelle is smart, strong and sexy all on her own and I think that it is important for us to see black women as more than butt cheeks.

And why did they have to title the show, "What's in it for us?' WTF? How come black people have to play dumb and want to be coddled all the time? The man speaks on health care, education, affordable housing, etc... which effects more than black people so why do have to ask "What's in it for us?" if you need health care, an eduation or whatever then whatever he says applies to you. I don't think he should cater to blacks and only blacks. He is running for pres of the US of A not mayor of Detroit or DC.

Why question his blackness? I swear we don't want to be sterotyped, but we stereotype ourselves.
