JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A FACTUAL ERROR OR TWO IN MICHELLE OBAMA’S SPEECH AND WORDS ABOUT WHICH SHE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE   Leave a comment

‘I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves’

That’s a re-tread. She’s used the line before. And it’s so obviously insincere

This woman’s whole life is middle class to upper middle class.

She knows nothing of slavery, or even, for that matter, hard physical work.

And, what is perhaps most pertinent, the statement is simply not true. Most of the construction was by paid skilled workmen, stone masons, carpenters, and plasterers.

Slaves who had those kinds of skills were not at all common, and when they were “rented out” for a special job, they were typically paid a wage the same as any other skilled person.

The final whitewashing of the stone, ironically, was done by slaves.
