Michelle Obama rises above racism to empower women

Michelle Obama shattered a glass ceiling when she became the first black first lady in the United States.

In her first public appearance since leaving the White House, the former first lady was asked which shards of glass had cut her the deepest.

In response, she referenced an incident in which a West Virginia county employee called her an "ape."
"The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut," Obama replied, according to the Denver Post. "Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won't see me for what I am because of my skin color."
