Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama appears in a promotional video for her Global Girls Alliance. The former First Lady appears in the video with adolescent girls from multicultural backgrounds.

The Global Girls Alliance empowers girls through education in foreign countries.

Mrs. Obama uploaded the video to her social media accounts on Thursday.

In the caption on Instagram.com, she wrote:

"Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. I see myself in these girls. I see my daughters in these girls. I know alot of you see yourselves and your families in them, too."

Obama came under heavy criticism due to the prohibitively high ticket prices for her book tour, which kicks off at the United Center in Chicago on November 13.

Her loyal fans expressed disappointment at the high prices which range from $500 to $5000 after the cheap tickets sold out within minutes.

But others defended the ticket prices, saying any price is justified since Mrs. Obama is the only Black First Lady in U.S. history.

Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. I see myself in these girls. I see my daughters in these girls. I know a lot of you see yourselves and your families in them, too. That’s why today on the International #DayoftheGirl, the @ObamaFoundation is launching the @GlobalGirlsAlliance—a program to empower adolescent girls around the world through education. We believe that change happens from the ground up, so we’re working to support grassroots leaders and to spur action from people like you, all around the world. We can accomplish more together than we can on our own, so I hope you’ll join our alliance—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls. #GlobalGirlsAlliance

  • CrunchyBlack1

    Michelle is so damn fine and thick.. no disrespect intended!

  • iWasteTime

    Thank you First Lady Michelle Obama

  • Itzgoingdown2

    She's pushing the white liberal message to black women. Our ideology and SOCIAL ENGINEERING had nothing to do with the breakup of the black family. Heterosexual Black Men are to blame for all of your problems. Liberalism, Black women and Homosexual men can solve all the problems in the black community. lol

  • iWasteTime

    Who is the "Our" that you're referencing?
    Where was the issue of the black family mentioned in this write up or where is the correlation to Global Girls Initiative?
    In reality, you've come here to push an agenda and you've done it poorly

  • Alextra Ballard

    Whur is Melania ol Be Bess asz at? She needs to be Front and Center. This is wassup!

  • Marlika

    I wish the fake, money hungry Obamas would disappear. They did nothing to help the black community. But hey. The gays got legal marriage, and illegal aliens became citizens. Black folks were left to their devices. The truth is life got better under President Trump for black people. The lowest black unemployment rate for blacks and everyone in 40 years. Plus tax cuts. You better enjoy it while you can. The Federal Reserve keeps raising interest rates which is going to lead to another recession. Our President is trying to stop them but ...they won't listen. Start saving your money.

  • Yoni7

    The lowest black unemployment rate for blacks

    So fine!!!! This ole crusty prune face saltine got my blood pressure up last week when she said Mrs Obama was ugly!! I was in a professional setting so I could not even react to the old demon colonizer. I just said "I respectfully disagree, she is beautiful inside and out but may not be the European standard of beauty that you subscribe to" and sashayed outta there. uuuggghh!!!

  • Rayne

    Now you know Melanie is just going to write a book saying the same thing Michelle said. Of course she going to change the words around. ???

  • dontgetblocked

    Furthermore....for those of you who keep calling Michelle -The First Lady. How would you have felt if someone disrespected Michelle by calling Laura Bush the First Lady after Bush left office? I respect Laura Bush far more than Michelle. She did more for blacks and education than Michelle ever could. (Do your research.)

    Michelle Obama is an everyday citizen. She is not the First Lady. Calling her the "my forever first lady" is low-class, ghetto, and uneducated. Every other race laughs at us. Your FLOTUS is the elegant and beautiful Melania Trump. She is doing an incredible job and was amazing in Africa. She was well-received, admired, and respected as she should be.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    This is just one ad in her laughably basic, remedial messaging to black women. If black women want a better themselves they should do the exact opposite of most of what Black Liberalism or liberalism in the black community tells them. Black liberalism does not work, never has worked and never will work because it's core ideology is Socialism over Capitalism (ie black business ownership), Horrible ghetto public education over Excellent schools, Matriarchy over marriage, Counter Culture challenge all power and authority except liberals and liberalism (blacks who question liberalism are wellouts c00ns) and homosexuality is safe and normal for young black boys and uncommitted, casual sex is ok for young black girls. Add in their support and or silence for millions of illegals invading this country and it's easy to see why blacks are at the bottom of every group in this country.

  • Truth Or Die

    Globalism + Feminism = Destruction of the 'Black American".

  • dontgetblocked

    Well her homosexual husband ...excuse me...bisexual husband didn't solve any problems in the black community.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    I'm pretty sure 20 years from now he's going to come out with some nonsensical statement about his sexuailty being fluid... blah, blah, blah.

  • dontgetblocked

    You better stack those letters behind your name. The competition is stiff and most people are walking out of college with an undergraduate and graduate degree. I had to go back to school and snatch up a couple myself.

  • Yoni7

    Got a degree. Just wondering if he's the reason behind lower unemployment, then why.....nevermind.

  • Phillybruh

    ummm that is her title now first lady Michelle Obama they will always be referred too as such.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I’d like to see her eat the ? she had setup for lunch in schools!!

  • what?why

    She needs to go home and spend a little time with her high school senior. Jeez she is never home for that kid, sad.

  • hi-liter

    How you know where she been and how much time she spends with Sasha? For all you know, Sasha could be wherever First Lady Michelle is, if you don't see her, then you wouldn't know.

  • hi-liter

    BIG FACTS!!!!

  • Bossy704

    Pure propaganda.

  • Marlika

    I’m cheap ?

  • dblogged

    Too bad that she’s a man. ??????????

  • CrunchyBlack1

    The jealousy is very obvious with them. The fact that she has and WILL remain a class act even in the mist of all that venom...has them seething

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Black folks are now celebrating black adults with families working low skill menial jobs? A SINGLE parent can't adequately provide for a family working at a low paying fast food, security, retail or customer service job.

  • Yardgirl

    Exactly!!!

  • Jethro

    Pure unadulterated Excellence.

  • Waya Hedia

    " 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school."

    Yeah and about 90% of kids graduating from AMERICAN urban schools can't read or do math and know nothing about science, Michelle. Why don't you help fix your own country first?

  • Waya Hedia

    no. it's FORMER First Lady if anything. She's NOT the "First Lady" in any country on earth.

  • Waya Hedia

    Yeah. That's what school, trade school and nighttime studying is for.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    How are they going to go to school if they can barely read?

  • Waya Hedia

    It does become a problem, doesn't it. Sometimes, people don't fall down holes, they jump.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Sometimes they're born and buried into a hole that was already dug

  • Malcom Flex

    Nice to see FLOTUS doing good as usual.

  • Merkaba morris

    Ok Wankster promote your Agenda for all the worlds to come together and Unite and restart this Bullcrap over again , These Gatekeepers never stop they are fighting for they very existance its only two sides victim or victamizer . Either you are connected to the Source or to the Entity . Things understood dont havet to be explained .Too late yall been judged this shit is destroyed .....Love and Light

  • Eileen

    you speak the truth!

  • Eileen

    Sad to admit but we got NOTHING!!!! That is why all of this illegal immigration crap under odumer made me sick! That is money that the black community could have utilized. Black folks got NOTHING!!!

  • Eileen

    i saw the video...interesting

  • the conscious one

    Glad I'm not the only one that sees it for what it is.

  • the conscious one

    Well said

  • what?why

    Reading is fundamental.

  • Yoni7

    Pardon me but, I don't think I understand your comment, because it looks like to me, it's the YT folks who are "celebrating" the "lowest unemployment rate for blacks under Trump's administration". Again, WHERE are these jobs that folks are speaking of?

  • Fated4greatness

  • hi-liter

    Apparently.

  • opinion

    those who have eyes to see---i will never understand why people dont see thru all this--

  • Peppermint Patty

    Michelle does her best to come across as an empathetic philanthropic down for my people african queen but underneath it all I truly feel like she loves and thrives off her celebrity, wealth, and access.....from where I sit....she's is a self serving narcissist like the rest of these political wives.....

  • ShWa

    LOL Wow.....

  • ShWa

    Absolutely!

  • ShWa

    LOLOLOL Yes.

  • RBH

    We are a GLOBAL community. No?

  • Waya Hedia

    no. you concern yourself with your family first, then you can help everyone else. American urban schools are a massive failure of incompetence, cheating, violence and waste.
