Michelle Obama 'knocked back' by race perceptions

US first lady Michelle Obama watches while US President Barack Obama speaks during an event in the East Room of the White House March 3, 2015 in Washington, DCMichelle Obama says she had to fight misperceptions due to her African-American race during the 2008 White House campaign that saw her husband become the first black president of the United States. “As potentially the first African-American first lady, I was also the focus of another set of questions and speculations, conversations sometimes rooted in the fears and misperceptions of others,” Obama said Saturday. Or was I too soft, too much of a mom, not enough of a career woman?” she asked in a frank commencement address at historically black Tuskegee University in Alabama. “Back in those days, I had a lot of sleepless nights worrying about what people thought of me,” Michelle Obama recalled.
