Michelle Obama's Darker Shade Of Skin: Whoopi Weighs In


Imagine my surprise when, during The View's "Hot Topics" segment this morning, moderator Whoopi Goldberg confessed that she was woken up during the night by a "strange thought" regarding Michelle Obama. "It was a thought that had never occurred to me," she began. "Barack Obama is one of the few men that we have seen who is a black man who has a very, very dark-skinned wife. She's very dark-skinned for normally what you see. And I wondered to myself, would he be electable if he had a white wife?" Yeah, not exactly what I said yesterday, but close! Maybe even inspired? Clip — in which hottie Harold Ford also gets a shoutout — above.

@chuchobaby: 1) Jada has mighty street cred. She was one of the "Set It Off" principals with "her homiez da girlz", she plays in a band, she's married to the Willster, she invested in Carol's Daughter (and if you don't know who that is or why it's relevant, perhaps boning up a tad would do no harm)...

2) Who is this Barry creature that keeps being bandied about? I know you all don't mean Marion Barry. Do you mean Halle Berry?
