host compares Michelle Obama to Chewbacca from Star Wars

Radio show host Jimmy Lakey probably won’t win many African American friends after he compared First Lady Michelle Obama to Chewbacca, the ape-like, hairy creature from the film, “Star Wars.”   Lakey claims that he heard the comparison while relaxing in a cigar club recently.

Lakey, who hosts a show on 740 KVOR in Colorado Springs, said, “at the cigar club, someone used the phrase Chewbacca, and everyone knew or assumed who this person was talking about.  I’ve tested it.  I’ve done group testing, and I’ve said, if I say Chewbacca, what do you think?  And, I’m telling you, I’m in so much trouble right now.”

Lakey critiqued himself by saying that he thought that the comparison was a bit much, and then noted that he’d shown pictures of Mrs. Obama to his wife.   He claims that his wife said that Michelle wears outfits that make her “look like a halfback.”

“If you’re the First Lady, you shouldn’t wear things that make you look like a halfback,” Lakey claims his wife said.

Lakey then said that he told his wife, “What’s the difference between you saying she looks like a halfback and someone else saying the name Chewbacca? I don’t get the difference.”

Think Lakey’s a racist?  Well, consider this:  When someone called into the show saying that Michelle Obama reminded him of a character from Planet of Apes, Lakey thought it was incredibly funny.

This woman is beautiful and classy and I can't believe the way people talk about our first family. I'm waiting for someone to say something about theose pretty little girls.  These white men know they would love to sample the merchandise the way they did back in the days when they could do it against our will!

Simple minds. The only way they know how to process the success. I feel bad for them. Perhaps this man should show a picture of his wife, float it around, see what negative things people come up with about her. I bet it wouldn't be funny then.

It is pissing WHITE AMERICA off, that the most powerful person in the world is BLACK!
Michelle got sexy swagger for days just like Obama. Michelle or Obama don't give a damn about what anyone says, because they or their children will never say ANYTHING from the WHITE HOUSE.

Yeah, they're racist. You can try to hide it behind laughter, but lets call a spade a spade.

Unfortunately, they're all showing their true colors because they can't handle that the first family is BLACK.

I have no clue who Jimmy Lakey is, so had to Google and wow.  When I first saw the Google image pic of  him, it immediately reminded me of that monster from the movie "The Goonies".

I think the racist references of Michelle Obama and monkey by those racists in the media is getting tiring and old.

The chickens are coming home to roost.  The racists and their spawns just can't fathom that, an educated, smart and very articulate man, is the leader of this country and the free world. You have to admire this man, because he has shown grace under pressure and has simply allowed his record to speak for itself.

**This is my opinion** 

For those of you folks from the other groups that are here checking out what we post in "AFRICAN AMERICAN MOMMIES",  tell them Chantalsmom says "OBAMA OR BUST IN 2012"
