Michelle Obama is "Ghetto Girl?!"

So thinks some of the black elite on Martha's Vineyard where the Obama's will be staying for vacation this summer:

...there's also a bit of wariness among the wealthiest ones, an uncertainty whether Obama will affirm them. "Obama is more a man of the people," says a Vineyarder who's part of black high society. "He doesn't seem to identify with affluent black people. His wife definitely doesn't; she is basically a ghetto girl. That's what she says--I'm just being sociological. She grew up in the same place Jennifer Hudson did. She hasn't reached out to the social community of Washington, and people are waiting to see what they'll do about that." (New Yorker Magazine)

The author goes to talk about the prejudices blacks have toward one antoher. I've never understood it either and I've seen it all my life.
