The Soapbox: A Black Mom-in-Chief Is Revolutionary — What White Feminists Get Wrong About Michelle Obama

No, Michelle Obama Topless On A Magazine Cover Is Not “Artsy”

Plenty of absurd things are "artsy," like crafting Jesus on the cross out of elephant feces or giving birth inside an art gallery as a live action installation.
