    What a classy lady Mrs. Obama is. I can't see the tuba player being able to smile or even have a nice thought about anyone except to sell her book.

    I think that Mrs. Obama is failing young Americans profoundly, here.

    She is addressing people based on appearances.

    She is not recognizing the potential for a indisputable fact that there exists DNA of African-Americans in many evident Caucasians. As it is that many African-Americans share DNA with Caucasians or other races.

    Speaking to the skin instead of to the people, generally – is intentionally racist in terms of recognizing color as the primary purpose of the talk.

    So, her position here is strange for such an allegedly educated individual that knows better.

    According to many on the Right – the Obamas don't have faith and the "eating right thing" is an intrusion on people lives. But if it was Laura Bush, Nancy Reagan, etc., it would be different!

    Go Michelle – No matter what!!!
