“Yes, America does owe black America for slavery, for the Democratic policies of Jim Crow."

Conservative author Ann Coulter ripped Michelle Obama on Fox News Monday night, blasting the first lady for recent comments made on race during a commencement ceremony.

Speaking at Tuskegee University over the weekend, Obama said she was the "focus of another set of questions and speculations" because of her race.

Coulter unleashed in an interview with Sean Hannity, saying, "I think she's just letting out her Reverend Wright now."

Coulter contended Democratic policies have been detrimental to the black community and the country, taking particular aim at affirmative action.

“Yes, America does owe black America for slavery, for the Democratic policies of Jim Crow,” Coulter added. “I think we’ve — we’re making it up now, when you’re getting admitted to Princeton when you can’t read, is that enough yet?”

During the segment, the conservative author also seemingly said she doesn't believe there were any peaceful protesters in Baltimore.

"This nonsense about the peaceful protesters. No, I want a milk carton for, 'Has anyone seen a peaceful protester in Baltimore?' As if work-a-day blacks are rushing out to protest Freddie Gray. No they aren't," she said.
