Disappointed, Fanatic, and Memes: The Greatest Black Love Story Ever Told @17th Soulja President Obama has shown Black men what loving a Black woman completely and correctly looks like “Michelle LaVaughn Robison, girl of the South Side…” so began President Obama’s tearful address to his wife during Tuesday night’s farewell address. As the most visible Black man on the planet stood before the world bidding us adieu, there sat his brown, statuesque, unmistakably Black wife blushing as her husband of 25 years stood at the podium raving over her. If you asked me to define Black love, I’d point you to that video. Nearly 13 years ago when a young, Black Illinois Senator first entered Black America’s radar, I was looking for the great woman proverbially at the side every great man. Controversial as it may be, I always appreciate seeing a powerful Black man married to a Black woman, since too often, non-Black wives, especially White women, are used as a tool to bargain for proximate Whiteness. So when I found out that Barack Obama’s wife was Black, and not the kind of rigid, palatable, ambiguous Black woman that America loves to hold up as proof of its diversity but an unambiguously Black, thicker-than-cold-grits, abundantly-melanated sister from the South Side, I melted. In the decade plus since Obama shot to political superstardom, I have been less than a fanatic of his policies, vocally critical even. But my disappointment in his performance as president has been in stark contrast to his performance as a family man and husband. I expect any man to adore his wife, but Obama’s unabashed adoration and gushing over the woman he referred to as the “brilliant, funny, generous woman who, for whatever reason, agreed to marry” him is the wildest dream of my wildest dreams of love. The unimaginable sacrifice Michelle Obama made in allowing her entire life to be scrutinized, demonized, judged and laid bare for a public largely relentless in its brutal racism and misogynoir has been repaid by her husband with the dreamiest intimate gazes from a podium before millions. The man she met nearly 30 years ago when she was assigned to mentor him as a summer associate at the law firm where she practiced has shown his appreciation for her . 17thsoulja
