Michelle My Bell

Thick, optimistic, intelligent, gregarious, giving, opinionated, fashionable, graceful, chocolate, sassy, intuitive, outspoken, determined, charismatic, sassy, and well proportioned; just a few adjectives that describe the woman of my dreams. As a child-I imagined Claire Huxtable- the mother from the 1980's sitcom The Cosby Show, as my ideal woman; I grew older and realized that Claire was nothing but a facade; a phony; a fictitious t.v. character created by middle, aged white men. After 12 years of of arduous searching, my real life version of Claire Huxtable finally arrived, and trust me, t.v. producers could never create a creature so divine-Her name is Michelle Obama-Unfortunately, a gentleman by the name of Barack snatched her before I could make my move. Since I cant have baby girl exclusively, I took it upon myself to write a tribute article on this mahogany goddess, hoping one day she will read it, leave team Obama, and hop on team Wallace.

Mrs Obama has the intellect to complement her good looks. Barack isn't the only Obama to graduate from Harvard Law School- In fact, when Mr Obama was entering Harvard Law School in 1988, Mrs Obama was exiting, with a Juris Doctor degree in her hand. To go along with her Harvard Law degree, Michelle has a Sociology degree from Princeton University. Princeton and Harvard, not bad for a black woman from the south side of Chicago. There is nothing sexier than a woman who is intellectually equal to her spouse. After graduating Harvard Law, you would assume that Mrs Obama took some big attorney job, at a prestigious law firm, where she pulled in a six figure salary-guess again-instead she went back to Chicago and worked with the mayor on several planning and development projects; including a nonprofit organization that encourages young minorities to improve on social conditions in their communities. Never shying away from the spotlight, Michelle has been recognized by several highly publicized magazines: she was named one of "The 25 Most Inspiring Women" by Essence magazine and she was included on the list of "10 of the World's Best Dressed People" by Vanity Fair.

Race will play a big factor in determining who will win the Democratic nomination, and if Barack wants to win, he better win the black vote first. Luckily, he has Michelle by his side to boost his credibility among black voters. Many people don't realize that Barack is racially mixed- He was born to a black Kenyan father and a white American mother. Honestly, black Americans would have a totally different view of Obama if he had a white woman as his wife- I could imagine the reaction from black women now " Oh my God!! Why does Barack Obama have a white wife, he couldn't find a decent black woman in Chicago". Among black Americans, women vote more than men, Michelle appeals to black American women- she appeals to a demographic that no other presidential hopeful can touch- not even Barack Obama himself. Michelle has made many stump speeches across the U.S; among her most important issues discussed are: race relations, poverty, education, and health care. While these other potential first ladies are smiling and waving to the camera-looking like puppets- Michelle is out there campaigning, backing her husband one thousand percent.

Okay, Lets assume for a minute-that Barack Obama wins the Presidential race in November-and Michelle Obama is the First Lady. Every First Lady raises awareness on a certain issue during each presidential term; With her experience in Sociology and African American studies- In a addition to her extensive work in urban development-maybe Michelle could create a real initiative to assist poverty stricken areas in the United States. This is not a far fetched idea, If her husband becomes president, she would have the necessary tools to create a massive social improvement plan for urban America. In my opinion, Mrs Obama looks like she could be a good politician for the future. With her personality, intellect, and will-the sky is the limit for this magnificent beauty. Maybe in another 16 years, well see another Obama running for president- this one will have breast of course.

  1. cool im glad im not the only one that thinks she bangin lol

  2. I really enjoyed reading this article. It's rare that anyone dares to shed light on ANY intelligent, educated,and sophisticated, black woman. I honestly thought that she was simply just the wife of Barak Obama and not a woman with so much ambition and credential that even without Obama, she'd be a movement in one way or another. Thanx for the article!

  3. I love her! I'm a Michelle Obama stan!

  4. GW has kept the current First Lady under wraps for pretty much her entire stay at the White House, which was a real shame. I think she might have been able to do some good, even as her husband was rampaging around messing everything else up. Perhaps he was concerned that his wife would outshine him.

    In any event, I've heard some of Mrs. Obama's speeches, and you're right. She's very articulate, and if her husband wins, whatever social issue she puts her attention to will undoubtedly see improvement.

  5. yea Seattle Slim...I'm a Stan

  6. ummm i was very uncomfortable with the last line in your little article that the next obama for president would have breast......maybe if barack divorced his wife and started a gay relationship with you and you could run for president and rest assured the next obama would have huge breast......G

  7. George..Be a man and stop commenting under anonymous..I know it is you..Only a fool of your caliber would write such garbage...

4 Reasons Why BET Is An Embarrassment To Black People

1. BET(Black Entertainment Television) did not air Coretta Scott King’s funeral on it’s station. BET claimed it wanted to offer viewers a different kind of experience by posting a live webcast on it’s website of the funeral where viewers could access it "at work, at home, traveling,[and] at school". Likewise, the four major networks; NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX all broadcast their own live webcasts on their respective websites. But these stations as well broadcast the funeral on television. C-SPAN and CNN also aired the funeral live.

This reason alone proves that BET is the epitome of trash on television. And not to equate the struggle of blacks with Coretta Scott King, but there would be no BET without her. BET felt that viewers would prefer to watch women shaking their rumps in music videos rather than some funeral for a beloved civil rights leader.
2. BET is not black entertainment television. It does not represent the views and ideals of the millions of Blacks in the United St…

The Light Skin Complex

Anybody who knows me well, or well enough for that matter, knows I was going to write about this at some point...smh...
Why do Dark Skinned Black people hating on Light Skinned Black people? Without Frederick Douglass, we would probably still be slaves. Without Jesse Jackson, helping out MLK jr,, White people would probably ignored him. Without Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas wouldn't be Judge now. Now we got Obama as President... and you know eventually we will have a dark skinned African American President. Bush looked at Colin Powell, made him Secretary of State, then gave Condi Rice a chance. See... Dark Skinned Black people should be grateful that we Light Skinned Black people are making their life easier...Agree?” - Yahoo Answers Poster
I have grown to accept that many African-Americans don't have a genuine desire to learn or embrace their history and heritage. I have become accustom to one's “Blackness” in America being more so defined by their clothes and vernacu…

I would like to present to Black Salvage readers the first regular segment to appear on the site, "Blog of the Month". The intent of these monthly pieces is quite simple really; to provide awareness of many of the great blogs and sites out there relevant to our focus. [Below is a sample of the type of pictures that appear on this month's "Blog of the Month].

The first "Black Salvage Blog of The Month" recipient is author of the thoughtfully racist web log "Fed Up", which is home to dozens of anti-black writings(here is a link, The author, who goes by the pen name "Intolerant" has been writing about his love of hating people of the African diaspora since November of 2005. Stories on the blog range from jokes to serious pieces on the all the supposed ills of black people in the author's opinion.

Before the comments questioning my reasoning for entertaining such a blog come in, let me first ask you t…
