Ms. Phyllis Carter here is your proof.
Not that there would ever be a valid reason, but this? This shows a level of idiocy that's hard to swallow -- even for them.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 16:  US First Lady Michelle Obama crosses her hands on her chest as she speaks to students as part of the 'Let Girls Learn Initiative' at the Mulberry School for Girls on June 16, 2015 in London, England.
The US First Lady is travelling with her daughters, Malia and Sasha and her mother, Mrs. Marian Robinson, to continue a global tour promoting her 'Let Girls Learn Initiative'. The event at the school was to discuss how the UK and USA are working together to expand girl's education around the world.  (Photo by Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images)
Conservatives spend an immense amount of time trying to convince people that they aren't racist. As liberals, we have a saying: "All conservatives may not be racists, but all racists are conservatives." That's not as bold a statement as one may think if you've ever spent any time perusing the conservative pages of Facebook. Go to the comments on just about any page run by conservatives and check the comments.For people who claim to not be racist, they sure do attract a whole slew of them.
On the other hand, if you spend time on a left-leaning page, the only racist comments you'll find come from conservative trolls who feel the whole world needs to be reminded that there is a lot of violence in Chicago. They truly.
For nearly eight years, conservatives have had an n-word field day. A black family moved into the white house and the racism conventions began. They've done away with the common respect most people show for the first family by attacking the First Lady for waking up in the morning and her daughters for everything from making a peace sign to getting into Harvard. It's disgusting.
The latest round of a**holery came shortly after a commencement address given by our First Lady at CUNY, where she reminded people of the stark reality of being a black person living in a house built largely on the backs of slaves:
It's the story that I witness every single day, when I wake up in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters – two beautiful, black young women – head off to school – waving goodbye to their father, the President of the United States, the son of a man from Kenya who came here to American for the same reasons as many of you: To get an education and improve his prospects in life."
That statement is absolutely factual. The White House and most of the government buildings were, in fact, built by slaves. Not exclusively, but enough that the foundations will always hold the memories — in the form of their blood, sweat and tears — of people whose "masters" were paid for their work. These aren't myths or accusations, they're historical truths; information cleverly hidden for years in books that is now readily available online.
So how did conservatives react? The same way they always did. The best example so far was rooted out by John Prager of Addicting Info, who after reading the idiotic thoughts of a blogger from couldn't help but post these screenshots of how fans of bigotry and hate responded to an amazing, successful woman telling the story of her life and her family:
