The Obama’s are planning to spend part of their summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. However, some of the residents aren’t quite sure if the First Lady is going to fit in. They’re calling Michelle Obama “Ghetto Girl”. Read more below, see photos and a really strange video.

Michelle Obama is ‘Ghetto Girl’?

In the land of Teddy Kennedy, John Kerry, and Barney Fwank – the rich, the famous, the powerful – lies an incredible undercurrent of elitism that is simply stunning. It seems the affluent, high society Black community in the popular New England vacation spot have no idea what to make of the Obamas coming to town, even resorting to calling Michelle Obama “basically a ghetto girl”. Ouch!

So it seems that Black folks in America can be VERY class-conscious. According to a recent New York magazine many of the Blacks in Martha’s Vineyard are upset that The One and his bitter wife are coming for a vacation. Apparently, they simply have way too much class to share their little island.

“Obama is more a man of the people,” says a Vineyarder who’s part of black high society. “He doesn’t seem to identify with affluent black people. His wife definitely doesn’t; she is basically a ghetto girl. That’s what she says—I’m just being sociological. She grew up in the same place Jennifer Hudson did. She hasn’t reached out to the social community of Washington, and people are waiting to see what they’ll do about that.”

Well. Alrighty then.

As you can imagine, many Blacks not on the Vineyard, are outraged at calling MO ghetto. In fact, some are completely stunned that “bourgeois Blacks” would be so unkind to the most important and influential couple on the planet if not the universe.

I guess they have short memories. Because about that Michelle Obama Ghetto Girl comment? All you have to do is go here, here, or here to look at just a few of her media makeovers which succeeded in turning her into that ‘glamour icon’ she is today.
