I cannot read spanish so my co worker read it for me and this is a very disrespectful portrayal of First Lady Michelle Obama. Even if you cannot read spanish, the picture is inappropriate, full stop!!! Michelle and President Obama have faced an enormous amount of disrespect which I primarily attribute to the fact that they are African Americans. Racism and prejudice is very strong in America and Barack Obama becoming president only brought more bigots to the surface.
