12:18 PM 12/19/2014

As we all learned this week, America is so racist that short white people feel justified in asking for Michelle Obama's help reaching high shelves at Target.

Michelle Obama: America Is So Racist, A White Lady At Target Asked Me To Reach The Top Shelf

10:49 AM 12/17/2014

The current People will sell better than the Hillary Clinton issue, because Hillary Clinton isn't on the cover. And when readers turn to the magazine's latest hard-hitting look at the Obamas, they'll learn that even the First Lady of the United States isn't immune from racism.

This news story has nothing to do with any previous news stories or any subsequent news stories. It is a completely isolated event that tells us nothing about the world in which we live.
