A teacher uses profanity to get through to a hardened streetwise thug who used the 'N' word in his classroom. This boy is a perfect example of a lost young man who doesn't have a male role model at home.

I'm not saying the teacher was right, because respect goes both ways. But we don't know what transpired before another student began recording the verbal exchange.

I did notice that all the boys were wearing shirts and ties, which might explain why they, for the most part, behaved civilized.

Students at B. Bernice Young Elementary school in New Jersey aren't busy learning their ABC's or 123's, they're being brainwashed by pro-Obama teachers.

Imagine if your child's school hours were taken up by conservatives teaching them to sing praises to George Bush all day. No wonder their parents are outraged and contemplating pulling the kids out of school.

Here's the address of the school and the number if you would like to register a complaint:

Normally I ignore British singer Amy Winehouse's uncontrollable temper tantrums, but yesterday was different. Instead of going off on a drug and alcohol fueled tirade against fans and paparazzi, sober Amy swore and spit on a child -- yes, a child.

According to INF Daily blog, an enraged Amy Winehouse stormed into a North London school ranting and raving at a kid who was bullying her bi-racial goddaughter Dionne Bromfield (pictured below).

Amy caught up with the bully inside the shcool and began swearing and eventually spitting on the child. The altercation continued outside the school, where, witnesses say the 26-year-old former addict began hurling abuse at the child's fellow students, who we assume came to her defense.

The tirade ended when a concerned onlooker (a parent, maybe) stepped between Amy and the children. How embarrassing for Amy and her goddaughter. By the way, doesn't Dionne have parents who could have handled that situation for her at the school?


Some of you may not even notice as you go about your day preparing for the busy holiday weekend. But the public resentment toward Barack Obama that has been bubbling under the surface has finally boiled over.

The purely racist actions by local and national school systems is a sign of tumultuous times ahead for Obama and his administration. According to online reports, local school principals have ordered teachers not to show a planned Obama address to schoolchildren on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Ruth Keenan, in her 33rd year teaching, says she was stunned to learn from her school’s principal that parents would have to be notified of plans to watch the speech. Parents who don't want their children to hear the speech can sign a form and return it to the school.

“I was just so shocked,” said Keenan, who teaches at Booth Middle School in Fayette County. “I have never, ever even heard of getting parental approval to watch a presidential speech. It’s just outrageous to me.”

This action by the school system is of course unprecedented in history -- and uncalled for. The literature that many parents objected to have been revised.

Obama planned to deliver a positive, upbeat message to the kids encouraging them to stay in school. But the speech was politicized by Obama himself when his aides insisted upon sending curriculum lessons to all schools rather than allow Obama's message to stand on its own.

Conservatives and Republicans seized upon the literature as a bold attempt by Obama to indoctrinate the nation's schoolchildren.

I don't mind pointing out when Obama is wrong (as he so often is). But it's obvious that this decision by local school administrators is purely racist and sends a signal that the seething anger of many people at the audacity of a half-black man being elected president is finally rearing its ugly head.


The public outrage and indignation is heating up over Barack Obama's planned national address to schoolchildren on Sept. 8.

The protests forced the White House to withdraw its suggestion that schoolchildren write essays about helping Obama after they view his address.

But the decision is too little too late. Some school systems are refusing to show Obama's address to their students next week. This action is being taken in response to a flood of phone calls and angry emails from parents.

Most of us don't have a problem with Obama's 15-20 minute address to the children, but it is the accompanying literature that conservatives and Republicans criticize as appearing to encourage student support for Obama. The accompanying "educational materials" do lend an Orwellian tone to the address.

As usual, Obama brought all of this drama upon himself. Everything would have been fine if Obama just gave a positive speech encouraging the kiddies to stay in school -- and then let them get back to their class work.

But nothing is ever that cut & dry with the former community organizer.

Obama's egocentricity and narcissism allows him to live a life unfettered by simplicity. Like other dictators-in-training, Obama feels the need to be worshipped and revered. The prevailing perception is if Obama can't exert mind control over most Americans then he'll go after their toddlers and pre-teens.


First and foremost, I want to send a big thank you to all the AUC and Spelman students and my loyal readers who sent in pics of Jasmine Lynn.

From AJC.com:

Jasmine Lynn loved school so much, her mother said, it was hard to believe she died not far from the university she had dreamed of going to since seventh grade.

She was 802 miles away from her home in Kansas City, Mo., the first in her family to go to college.

Now just two weeks into her sophomore year, police said, she was killed early Thursday walking near Spelman College.

“I never in a million years would’ve thought she’d be killed at school,” said her mother, Constance Franklin.

The 19-year-old psychology major was struck by a stray bullet, the victim of the kind of senseless violence she might have healed some day.

She came to Atlanta to make her family proud.

“She had a big heart,” said her grandmother Carolyn Williams. “She loved people, and people loved her.”

Thursday her Kansas City home was filled with friends and family trading stories about Jasmine — how much she loved school, adored her grandmother and hated polka dots.

In the 24 hours since Jasmine was slain, Franklin and Williams have not been alone. Read more...

One man is in custody in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Spelman student Jasmine Lynn who was struck in the chest by a stray bullet as she returned to her dorm last night.

A memorial for Jasmine Lynn is scheduled for 8 p.m. in front of Spelman’s main gate on Westview Drive. The memorial is being organized by students, not the college, a campus spokeswoman said.

Lynn, of Kansas City, Mo., was walking south on James P. Brawley Drive around 12:30 a.m. when a fight broke out among a group of men on the corner of Mitchell Street and James P. Brawley Drive.

A friend who was walking with Lynn saw the altercation and the gun and she warned Lynn to take cover, but it was too late. Police questioned one man at Grady hospital who was chased, tackled and stomped by bystanders who were tired of the senseless violence.

But police say the gunman got away.

Danays Marquez, a Morris Brown College freshman from Miami, said she heard 5 gunshots and saw Lynn fall to the ground. “She was drenched in blood and it looked like she was taking her last breath,” said Marquez.

Jerome Jones, an 18-year-old student from Clark Atlanta, was struck in the wrist by a stray bullet. He was treated at Grady Memorial and released.

Loneia Powell, a 20-year-old Clark Atlanta junior from Columbus, said it’s not unusual to hear gunshots near the campus.

“Look at the area we’re near,” she said. “It happens all the time.”


Responding to angry protests from conservatives and parents alike, the White House has now withdrawn a request for students to 'help' Barack Obama.

The controversial request was made in White House "course recommendations" sent to schools all over the country in preparation for Obama's national address to schoolchildren all over the country on Sept. 8. The address will be televised on closed circuit television from the White House, and all schools will be provided the closed feed.

The accompanying literature "suggested" that after listening to Obama's speech, the children, as young as pre-K thru 6th grades, would write an essay to themselves describing ways they could help Obama.

The White House admitted to the Washington Times newspaper that presidential aides helped the U.S. Education Department write the suggested assignments for the students, which sparked criticism by many who claim Obama is trying to "indoctrinate" the school system.

Christina Erland Culver, former deputy assistant secretary for education, said presidents traditionally address schoolchildren on the first day of school. The problem was with the written recommendations that the Obama administration sent to the schools.

"That's where they kind of got into a slippery spot. Federal statute denies any authority to the Department of Education to provide any kind of curriculum or anything that can be passed down to the state, and that's part of the statute forming the Department of Education. So they kinda got themselves into this mess because they didn't really understand some of the key legal roles or the dos and don'ts at the federal Department of Ed," she said. Read more...


A Spelman College student was killed and a Clark-Atlanta student wounded during a shooting early Thursday on the Clark-Atlanta campus.

Jasmine Lynn, a Spelman student in her 20s from Kansas City, Mo., was shot after gunfire broke out during a fight in the 200 block of James P. Brawley Drive, according to police. Lynn was walking with a group of friends back to the Spelman campus when they passed by the fight. "One of the friends actually heard the gunshots, actually saw the weapon and told her to get on the ground," said Lt. Keith Meadows of the Atlanta Police Department. "Before she was able to get on the ground she was struck in the chest by a stray round."

Bystanders rushed to help Lynn. "I walked up to the girl 'cause she was laying on the ground," said witness Danays Marquez. "She was drenched in blood and it looked like she was taking her last breath." A bullet also hit an 18-year-old Clark-Atlanta student in the wrist. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Two people were arrested at the scene, but police did not reveal the charges against them.

Right Wing conservatives are up in arms over a speech that Barack Obama plans to deliver to the nation's shcool children on September 8 -- the same day that Tyra Banks will reveal her natural tresses on national TV (I had to throw that in).

Conservatives accuse the Obama administration of attempting to brainwash or indoctrinate school children into some sort of Youth Zombie Corp that will report directly to him *sigh*.

As evidence, they singled out a Utah teacher for showing a video to her students that conservatives are calling "radical, leftist propaganda."

Children at Eagle Bay Elementary School in Farmington were shown a short video called “I pledge” on Aug. 28. The video opens with an image of President Barack Obama and part of a speech in which he says, “Let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.

“It’s very inappropriate to show a radical, leftist propaganda piece that political to children,” Gayle Ruzicka said. “If parents want their children to learn about those things and do them in the home, wonderful, fine, but it’s not the place of the school to show a one-sided propaganda piece to children without parents knowing about it.” Read more...

Although the text of Obama's planned speech to the children has not been released, conservatives are in an uproar because the students will be asked, by their teachers, to write a summary detailing what they can do to help Obama in his goal to change America.

I don't see a problem with Obama giving a speech to school children. But then I'm not a conservative either.

The other day I posted a link where you could download the full House version of Barack Obama's proposed Universal Health Care Reform bill. After tracking the downloads I noted that only 17 of you downloaded the bill for review. Not 17% -- 17 downloads total!

That's a shame because it provides the bigots with more fuel to call us lazy and ignorant. The joke goes: if you want to hide something from black people, put it in a book.

So for the benefit of those of you who choose to go through life with blinders on, I will shine some light on sections of the bill that I feel will impact our community the most. Please remember that Obama himself has not read the bill, and has never read a bill before he signs it.

Chuck Norris (yes, that Chuck Norris) blogged about a section of the bill (Page 838) that he found particularly disturbing. The provision titled "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children" would send "experts" into your home to "train" and educate you on child behavior and parenting skills.

While Norris has reason to be concerned about strangers evaluating his parenting skills, the program specifically targets the black community. After all, our community has the highest rate of poverty, out-of-wedlock childbirth and black-on-black crime that can be directly traced back to single-parent homes headed by black women.

On Page 840, the bill specifically targets "communities that are in high need of such services, especially communities with a high proportion of low-income families." That doesn't sound like Chuck Norris' neighborhood to me.

On the one hand, Socialized medicine sounds idealistic, but on the other hand, it's shaping up to be an Orwellian nightmare that could lead to population control of the black community.

Norris terms these services "discriminatory and even prejudicial stereotype and generalization that has no place in federal government, law or practice," and he wonders if the "education" will entail religious teachings as well.

Welcome to the New World Order kids! This is the Hope and Change you voted for.

A greasy looking Ciara stuffed backpacks at the 2nd Annual Staples "Do Something 101 National School Supply Drive" held at the Boys and Girls Club in NYC yesterday. What else is there for her to do these days?

Ciara hopes her benevolence work will help spur sales of her latest CD. Her CD (I can't remember the title) flopped worse than Bow Wow's last disc, which only sold a measly 18,000 units.

In addition to falling off musically, Ciara's style is also missing in action. What the HAIL is that on her head? Surely she can't be serious? Ciara should put that wig back on the mannequin she stole it off and do something original and creative with her own naps.

Remember John Holdren, the Harvard professor appointed by Barack Obama to be his "science adviser"? I told you earlier about his book Ecoscience that advocates population control and forced abortions. Well, it turns out Holdren has even more radical views on life than I originally thought.

In 1973, Holdren wrote another book called “Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions” in which he says newborn babies, if given the right "social experiences" after birth, "will ultimately develop into a human being." I had to stop typing long enough to laugh out loud! THIS is the guy that Obama wants advising him on science when he doesn't even know when human life begins?

Are all Harvard professors kooky like Holdren and Skip Gates? Unlike Skip Gates, Holdren is now in control of this country's science policies!

The more I read about this nut job Holdren, the more he begins to sound like Hitler, who also didn't think a segment of society was human and set about solving his "social problems" by building concentration camps.


A Boston cop might lose his job after he vented his frustration toward Harvard professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates, Jr, in an email.

Gates created a national firestorm of controversy when he was arrested after hurling racist accusations at a white police officer who was investigating a possible break-in at Gates's Harvard-owned residence in Boston.

Both Gates and Sergeant James Crowley have threatened to file lawsuits against each other.

From TheBostonChannel.com:

A Boston police officer was placed on administrative leave after he allegedly used a racial slur when referring to Henry Louis Gates Jr.

In a mass e-mail, Officer Justin Barrett, 36, called Gates a "jungle monkey," according to Elaine Driscoll, a spokeswoman for the Boston Police Department.
Gates, a black Harvard scholar, was arrested at his home earlier this month on a disorderly conduct charge after he tried to budge open the door of his Cambridge home.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis found out about the e-mail on Tuesday and immediately stripped Barrett of his gun and badge, Driscoll said. The e-mail was sent anonymously to his Barrett's fellow guard members and the Boston Globe.

Yesterday, Cambridge police released the tapes of the 911 call that set up the confrontation between a Harvard professor and a cop that made national headlines.

Contrary to media reports, the caller did not mention the race of the two men that a neighbor thought she saw breaking into professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates' Harvard-owned house on July 16. She also didn't mention the word "backpacks" during the call.

Most of you probably never would have heard about this local matter if Barack Obama had not decided to make a racial issue out of it without knowing any of the facts.

The police reports posted on SmokingGun.com clearly shows a belligerent, pompous Skip Gates verbally abusing Sgt. James Crowley for doing his job. "Do You know who I am?" Gates shouted when Crowley asked to see his ID to prove he resided at that address.

When Sgt. Crowley informed Gates that he was investigating a possible break-in at that address, Gates asked, "Why, because I'm a black man in America?" Gates also demanded to know if Sgt. Crowley knew who he was messing with. Witnesses would later say it was almost as if Gates wanted to be arrested.

Gates heaped verbal abuse on Sgt. Crowley, calling him a racist for doing his job. Gates even hurled an insult at Sgt. Crowley's mother as he followed the officer outside and onto the porch. If anyone was exhibiting racist behavior it was Gates.

Obama didn't know any of these facts before sticking his foot in his mouth by referring to the Cambridge police as "acting stupidly."

Maybe Gates prefers that police not investigate any more calls of possible break-ins at at his home.


The fallout continues: Comedian Bill Cosby has weighed in on the remarks made by Barack Obama at the conclusion of last night's televised presser from the White House.

"I’ve heard about five different reports [on the details of the arrest]. If I'm the president of the United States, I don't care how much pressure people want to put on it about race, I'm keeping my mouth shut," said Cosby in an interview on Boston’s WZLX.

Obama deliberately waited to call on Chicago Sun Times' Washington bureau chief Lynn Sweet last because he obviously knew she would ask him a question about the arrest of his friend Henry Louis Gates, Jr., a distinguished Harvard University professor.

Prior to that question, most of the reporters' questions focused on Obama's disastrous health care reform bill.

Sgt. James Crowley arrested professor Gates last week for disorderly conduct. Obama said the Cambridge police reacted "stupidly" in arresting his friend who refused the officer's request for ID to prove he owned the home he couldn't unlock the front door to.

Gates, who was returning from a trip to China, couldn't unlock his front door because he'd jammed his key in the lock.

Sgt. Crowley -- the police academy expert on racial profiling -- responded to Gates' home to investigate a report of a break-in.


From an elementary school teacher who has had it up to here with Obama. I removed her name because it's doubtful that a Fourth Grade elementary school teacher wrote this. But the letter contains some great points that are worthy of debate:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington , DC 20500

Mr. Obama:

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an
adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally. You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States .. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth. I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world.

Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this? Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia. You don't show Great Britain, our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia. How dare you, sir! How dare you!

While perusing the Black Voices forums I ran across this little tidbit of information about Barack Hussein Obama cutting federal funding to historically black colleges. I'm not surprised. This is the same president who killed the DC private school voucher program that mainly benefitted black students from DC's poorest neighborhoods.

I can't wait to see the excuses the Kool Aid drinkers give for this indefensible action by the Obama administration.

Leaders of historically black colleges say they'll fight a reduction in a federal program they call a financial lifeline at a time of economic distress for the schools and their students.

President Barack Obama's education budget, unveiled Thursday, included major spending increases in many areas — but didn't include an extra $85 million that black institutions have received annually for the past two years thanks to a 2007 change to the student loan laws.

That two-year-old program provided direct funds to federally recognized HBCUs — historically black colleges and universities.
Other direct federal support to the schools would increase from $238 million to $250 million, but with the expiration of the HBCU fund the schools effectively would see a $73 million cut.

A program supporting Native American tribal colleges would also see decreased funding, while one for institutions serving large numbers of Hispanic students would see an increase from $93 million to $98 million.

Education Department officials emphasized that all such institutions stand to gain from other parts of the budget, notably the proposed increase in the maximum Pell Grant for low-income students by $200 — to $5,550.

R&B singer Chrisette Michele was in town this weekend to host her album release party at EROS and to promote her new CD Epiphany, which is the only CD that I paid cash for this year.

Loyal reader Scott L. writes:

Hi Sandra ... I do some volunteer work for the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and wanted to pass along the attached photo. Here's a cutline if you need it:

Chrisette Michele visited Atlanta Saturday for a release party for her new album, Epiphany. She's shown here with Joel Alvarado, policy director for G-CAPP, the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention. Chrisette is contributing vocals to a new public service announcement for gPOWER, a fundraising campaign for G-CAPP that launched May 6.

In a PC move, Barack Obama has agreed to allow 1,700 students to remain in the DC private school voucher program until they graduate from high school. But no new students will be allowed to enroll, thus ending the program that provided funding for underprivileged children to attend private schools.

Apparently, what's good for Obama's children isn't good for children whose families can't afford private school education. Obama hopes to save a few bucks by ending the voucher program so he can fritter away more tax dollars on important government projects like updating Air Force One photos.

On Monday Barack Obama made another in a series of embarrassing goofs by suggesting that the swine flu pandemic was "not a cause for concern." Just two days later, Obama has reversed his stance, saying the outbreak of swine flu had created a "serious situation" in the United States requiring the "utmost precautions," such as closing down schools where cases of swine flu are reported.

The cases of swine flu has risen in the U.S. to 91, including one death -- an infant who died in a Houston hospital.

Be aware that there are no vaccines for this particular strain of swine flu. Also, antiviral medications do not kill the virus that causes swine flu. They only interfere with the ability of the virus to bind to certain cells in the body. Antivirals are only effective against specific virus, and only if administered in the early stages of infection (up to 48 hours). There is no known cure for a virus.

What can you do to protect yourself? Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (as warm as you can stand it) or alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Remember when using public restrooms to use a paper towel when turning off the faucet and when opening restroom doors.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth especially when out in public.

It's important to note that the majority of people infected with swine flu do make a full recovery, so don't panic. Remember, it isn't the virus that kills, it's the body's inflammatory response to the virus.

If you have flu-like symptoms (cough, sneezing, runny nose), don't go to work or school. If you have accompanying joint pain, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, go to the emergency room or notify your doctor immediately.

First Lady Michelle Obama wore a cute J Crew cardigan sweater with black slacks as she spoke to children during the "Take Your Child to Work Day" event at the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC yesterday. I love that sweater with the argyle pattern contrasted by sequins and solid block colors. It's different and not too trendy.

I do believe the White House has seen more kids in the past 100 days than ever before in its storied history. Dealing with a bunch of screaming kids that's not yours can wear a sista out. And just think: she's doing it without a court order.

Mrs. Obama could be out shopping or ordering her staff around like I'd be doing if I were her. If anything, she has helped to boost student interest in visiting the stale old White House.

Off topic: doesn't Mrs. Obama seem to glow when He's not around?

First Lady Michelle Obama helped D.C. area students plant a tree as part of a service project at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in Washington, DC yesterday. Her husband Barack was there too, but who cares, right? Anyway, doesn't Michelle look fit and toned? Looks like her early morning exercise regimen is doing wonders for that bod!

From AJC.com:

    The free spirit of Jaheem Herrera is evident in the family portraits in his DeKalb County apartment.

    The 11-year-old enjoyed dancing and drawing, and the easy smile he flashed for the photographers was genuine, his stepfather said Monday night.

    On Thursday afternoon, after returning home from Dunaire Elementary School, Jaheem quietly went into his room and hanged himself. His 10-year-old sister, Yerralis, also a fifth-grader, discovered Jaheem’s dead body.

    “His sister was screaming, ‘Get him down, get him down,’” said Norman Keene, who helped raise Jaheem since the boy was two years old.

    When Keene got to the room, he saw Yerralis holding her brother, trying to remove the pressure of the noose her brother had fashioned with a fabric belt.

    Jaheem was bullied relentlessly, his family said. Keene said the family knew the boy was a target, but until his death they didn’t understand the scope.

    “We’d ask him, ‘Jaheem, what’s wrong with you?’” Keene recalled. “He’d never tell us.”

    He didn’t want his sister to tell, either. She witnessed much of the bullying, and many times rose to her brother’s defense, Keene said.

    “They called him gay and a snitch,” his stepfather said. “All the time they’d call him this.”

    In an interview with WSB-TV, the boy’s mother, Masika Bermudez, also said her son was being bullied at school. She said she had complained to the school.

    She said she asked him about the bullying Thursday when he came home from school and he denied it. She sent him to his room to calm down. It was the last time she would see him alive. READ MORE...

V-103's Greg Street kicks knowledge about Independent Retail Day, which is today. Greg wants you to get out and support the few local record stores still doing business in our community. Our music will not survive if all the record stores in our communities shut down because the majority of our people aren't buying songs off iTunes. If the record labels can't sell our music then it dies.

A lot of readers email me asking about advice on making it in the music business. But I have no experience in that field. Industry vets like Greg Street have a wealth of knowledge on the music biz and they don't mind sharing. He's one of the top DJs in the country. I just got off the phone with Greg and I learned a few things that I didn't know. Such as: Soulja Boy has the #1 record in New York with "Turn My Swag On" -- and he has two records in the top ten in the country. <-- Now I see why they call SB a genius!

First Barack Obama delivered the first Godless presidential Thanksgiving message, and now this:

Georgetown Says It Covered Over Name of Jesus to Comply With White House Request

Jesus Missing From Obama's Georgetown Speech

I guess the White House doesn't want Obama's overseers in the middle east to be offended by any semblance of Christianity. Especially since Obama has already declared America a non-Christian nation.

First Lady Michelle Obama didn't waste any time getting back to her garden after returning from her trip to London. How could you not love Michelle? What other First Lady wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty in the White House garden -- especially when they have servants for that sort of thing?

Mrs. Obama invited students to help her plants herbs in the White House kitchen garden on the South lawn yesterday.


Michelle Obama got all choked up when speaking to English schoolgirls at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Language School in London yesterday. She obviously knew that English kids rank among the smartest in the world, and that she was speaking to the brightest of the best!

I went to an all-girl school in London (talk about boring). I'm happy to see that uniforms are still standard. Maybe one day the substandard American public school system will get a clue and realize that uniforms help children focus better in school.

In the 2nd video, the kids mob Michelle like she was a rock star!

Thanks to Gina from MOW for the videos and text:

    She told them: "We are counting on every single one of you to be the best that you can be."

    In a brief speech to about 100 pupils she she spoke of her working class upbringing in the Southside of Chicago, saying she was “an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them”.

    She went on: “I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity.

    “You too can control your own destiny, please remember that.

    “Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.

    “It won’t be easy, that’s for sure, but you have everything you need. Everything you need you already have right here.

    “We are counting on you, we are counting on every single one of you to be the best that you can be.

    “We know you can do it, we love you, thank you so much.
