    You know I read about a study that says black women are the most likely to be ignored in public. Maybe thats why only one person noticed her. Anyway, I know she wasnt alone?? usually they have secret service with them.

    Yes I believe you, there is no way she could have been alone.
    That is an interesting study! But it makes me think about other things too, in regards to perhaps based upon certain circumstances and stereotypes in regards to the way people may generally regard Black women. For instance, I believe that black younger women maybe and might have been watched as opposed to the First Lady in a store because people think they might shoplift. Or when black women were spandex clothes that are too tight for their usual shape, I think people gauk and and in this sense, they are notice in this persepective. And also overweight and very obese Black women too, are noticed but not for a good reason but for rebuke. i remember a few years ago when i used to watch the Tyra Banks show, that she did a special about this very issue and she had to two models stand in the mall and there were hidden cameras and that picked up peoples comments as they passed by, and it was just amazing. Rude comments were even made in the earshot of the ladies. So I absolutely agree with you in that study about how Black women are not noticed but, it would be if they appeared as the First lady appeared in regular, unappealing, everyday clothes and inconspicouse scarfs or hairdos.

    You made a good point, and it certainly worked in Michelle's favor! she looked so at ease as she was pushing her shopping basket. She looked like the 'Black' version of the Brady Bunch Mom, to me!--Just enjoying the day out shopping around for her kids and family.

    I Don't believe it!!! There is no way she was there without her compliment of secret service protectors.
    How about this story from 2009
    http://www.luxurylaunches.com/celebrities/michelle_obama_expensive_vegetable_shopping_trip.php
    When the First Lady decided to hit the local farmer's market, just a short block or two away from the White House, her armored limousine was accompanied by a troop of Security Service and Police. About three dozen vehicles swarmed the place and H Street, Vermont Avenue, two lanes of I Street and an entrance to the McPherson Square Metro station were shut down. Barricades were put up to keep the public out, and bomb-sniffing dogs checked for anything that could probably blow up the First Lady’s plans.
