FLOTUS Michelle Obama can’t get any respect.

In it’s fifth issue of new magazine Candy, the mother of two and wife of the commander in chief was portrayed by a transgender model, Connie Fleming with a controversial headline, “The Candydate.”

The zine’s publisher Luis Venegas says he was inspired by the historical happenings in the White House.

“I remember back in early 2007 when the Democratic Party’s nominees were narrowed down between two “controversial” stereotypes never before seen for presidency: a black man, Barack Obama; and a woman, Hillary Rodham Clinton. At that time, I thought, ‘when will the time come when these archaic walls break down and the White House will be occupied by, for example, a black, transsexual woman?’”

Perhaps he has a point, but seriously, portraying Michelle Obama as a transsexual could be quite offensive to some.

What do you think? Is it disrespectful?

    Is it disrespectful? To whom? How about us? A queeeer for a prez and a tranny for da first lady….she has a freakin’ bulge too. Let’s not forget Larry Sinclair in the back of Ovomit’s limo….this is the antichrist from hell folks. What do you expect, Ozzie & Harriet? The kids are fake, no bio there.

    I think everyone is reaching just a little bit on this one. Although the picture does resemble features simular to FOTUS Michelle Obama, the article does not suggest it’s her. It clearly says the author is exploring the idea of “the White House will be occupied by, for example, a black, transsexual woman?”. No where does the article or the author of the article (Luis Venegas) even mention Mrs. Obama. However, Black America Web tries desperately to tie Mrs. Obama to the picture. Take a look at the cover of the magazine….the name is Candy. Anybody else notice that almost everything on the cover is kind of blurry except the picture of the model. In the top right cover it says “The First Transsexual Style Magazine”. BAW got cha…..hook, line, and sinker……This wasn’t about Mrs. Obama. It was about the possibility of a transsexual being elected President. Come Black folks…..we gotta do better.

  3. That picture is racist towards black women on said:

    This is an ugly and racist caricature of what a black woman is. This looks like it belongs in a KKK handout. I don’t trust those racists – those racists are evil. Be careful because they hate us.

    I think that is so disrecpectful. She is a beautiful woman and very intelligent. She should not be portrayed in that manner.

  5. Black america web is helping them get the attention, It’s also about the bottom line for black america web TOO.


  6. The magazine is just trying to get some attention and I guess it’s working because their cover made it on Blackamericaweb. Up until today, I didn’t know there was a magazine called Candy. It’s all about their bottom line.
