Michelle Obama praises Jackie Robinson movie

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama said Tuesday that a new movie chronicling Jackie Robinson's rise through Major League Baseball, including the racial discrimination he endured while breaking the sport's color barrier in the 1940s, left her and the president "visibly, physically moved" after they saw it over the weekend.
The film, "42," also left the couple wondering "how on Earth did (the Robinsons) live through that. How did they do it? How did they endure the taunts and the bigotry for all of that time?" she said.

This doesn't surprise me in the least. Maybe she should speak about how Jackie Robinson was used tom BREAK UP the Black Baseball League because white people back then was coming to watch our people play ball. Maybe she should speak about Jackie's son who went back to Africa and owns one of the biggest Black owned coffee plantations there and how they are trying to keep his coffee off the open market. The goal of the slave was never to work in the big house but it appears to be our goal. Michelle my @ss!!!

Michelle didn't need to go into the turbulence past of Jackie Robinson and his family. Its true Jackie's wife and family have suffered racism but that's not what this is about... this is the story of Jackie Robinson and his story of his times in baseball and how he broke barriers. It wasn't an easy road for him and his family, but they made it...
