    First lady Michelle Obama took her inspirational family story on the road over the weekend, telling the graduating class of Oregon State University that having a corner corporate office and a big paycheck isn’t the prize it looks like when entering the job market. “Success isn’t about how your life looks to others, it’s about how it feels to you,” Obama said Sunday, retelling how she and her brother, Oregon men’s basketball coach Craig Robinson, grew up in a small Chicago home pushed by parents who said “be true to ourselves.” For both, she said, that meant throwing away their...

    Michelle Obama has recently taken issue with her critics for allegedly perpetuating the idea that she is an "angry black woman."  "That's an image people have tried to paint of me, since, you know, Barack announced, that I'm some angry black woman," she told CBS. "Who can write about how I feel?" she went on. "Who? What third person can tell me how I feel, or anyone, for that matter?"One does not have to take a leap of faith to believe Mrs. Obama to be an "angry black woman."  It is nothing more than a logical conclusion given the evidence she has provided.  ...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama is challenging assertions she has forcefully imposed her will on White House aides and says people have inaccurately tried to portray her as "some kind of angry black woman." Mrs. Obama tells CBS News she has not read New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor's new book that characterizes her as a behind-the-scenes force in the Executive Mansion, whose strong views often draw her into conflict with President Barack Obama's top advisers.

    First lady Michelle Obama is challenging assertions she's forcefully imposed her will on White House aides, saying she's tired of people portraying her as "some kind of angry black woman." Mrs. Obama tells CBS News she hasn't read New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor's new book that characterizes her as a behind-the-scenes force in the Executive Mansion, whose strong views often draw her into conflict with President Barack Obama's top advisers. "I never read these books," she told CBS's Gayle King in an interview broadcast Wednesday. "So I've just gotten in the habit of not reading other people's impressions of...

    CBS News ^ | January 12, 2012
    (CBS News) Michelle Obama said depictions of friction in a new book, "The Obamas," between her and former top aides to her husband, President Obama, aren't true. In a wide-ranging interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, the first lady also said that some have tried to portray her as an "angry black woman" since Mr. Obama first announced he was seeking the presidency. " ... I guess it's more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and-- you know? But that's been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the...

    Billed as part of first lady Michelle Obama’s “Joining Forces” initiative for military families — and perhaps as a way to woo average American voters — Mrs. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will serve as Grand Marshals of the November 20 season-ending NASCAR Ford 400.

    On my blog last week I posted an excerpt from the Salon piece, “Abortion saved my life.” The writer, a blogger named Mikki Kendall, was relaying her first person account of supposedly nearly hemorrhaging to death because a hospital doctor refused to perform the one procedure that would save her life, an abortion. Here was the quote I pulled: I don’t know if his objections were religious or not; all I know is that when a bleeding woman was brought to him for treatment he refused to do the only thing that could stop the bleeding. Because he didn’t do...

    Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree and other supporters of reparations for Tulsa's 1921 Race Riot promised Sunday to continue their quest despite continued setbacks. "It's Greenwood time, it's Tulsa time . . . it's time to be paid for Tulsa's 1921 Race Riot, time to bring Greenwood back," Ogletree said during a three-hour event at Sanctuary Evangelistic Church, 1228 E. Fifth St. The program, which featured Ogletree; U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; and Chicago Alderman Dorothy Tillman, was billed as a congressional hearing but sounded more like a revival meeting. About 10 of the 97 remaining black survivors of the...
