This happened to coincide with the first week of Occupy Wall Street. I called her up the next day and said, “Why don’t we go to Occupy Wall Street? I don’t know what it is, but it seems as though there’s a large group of people who are feeling similar to how you’re feeling.” We went down to Zuccotti Park and marched around the square and banged some drums. At the end of the day she said, “We really didn’t accomplish anything, but I feel a lot better at least knowing that there are people who are in a similar predicament.” I ended up going back to Occupy Wall Street and getting involved doing the speakers’ mike but after a month I still felt this frustration.

Throughout the campaign, the media often labeled Obama as an “angry black woman,” and some websites attempted to propagate this perception, causing her to respond: “Barack and I have been in the public eye for many years now, and we’ve developed a thick skin along the way. When you out campaigning, there will always be criticism. I just take it in stride, and at the end of the day, I know that it comes with the territory.”By the time of the 2008 Democratic National Convention in August, media outlets observed Obama’s presence on the campaign trail had grown softer than at the start of the race, focusing on soliciting concerns and empathizing with the audience rather than throwing down challenges to them, and giving interviews to shows like The View and publications like Ladies’ Home Journal rather than appearing on news programs.
