I’m sure that First Lady Michelle Obama brushes all of the offensive comments and racist remarks off her shoulders.

But, it’s just annoying and such a shame how much disrespect she and President Obama have received over the years for being Black.

Last month, Pamela Ramsey Taylor, a West Virginia county employee who worked as the director of the Clay Country Development Corporation, was suspended after posting the following status to her Facebook account:

“It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a[n] Ape in heels.”

Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling commented under the post, stating, “Just made my day Pam.”

She soon resigned from her position.

However, after six months of suspension, Taylor will return to her position on December 23.

Both Taylor and Whaling issue an apology, but it doesn’t change the fact that their true feelings were expressed on a national platform and are now known to the general public.
