Stupidest article ever about Melania Trump’s speech
Black female writer Brittney Cooper writes in Cosmopolitan:
Not only did Melania Trump claim that she wrote the speech, “with as little help as possible,” but the Donald Trump campaign has doubled down in support of her, suggesting that the lines she borrowed included “common words and phrases,” and therefore represent nothing particularly unique or remarkable about Obama’s own words. I guess this is what Melania Trump, and generations of white women, mean by “help.” It seems to mean that they rely upon black women’s labor to help them look good, sound good, and gain influence, while treating that labor as wholly expendable.
Is this woman too stupid to know that political speeches are written by speechwriters and not by the people giving the speeches? Michelle Obama’s speechwriter is (according to the Washington Post ) Sarah Hurwitz, a white woman. And the Obamas paid her salary with campaign contributions from rich white people.
