Michelle Obama aiming to inspire African youth

WASHINGTON -- Michelle Obama is fond of saying there's no magic to her being first lady.
She didn't come from a wealthy or well-connected family. She came from the South Side of Chicago and is a descendant of slaves. But she says it's a passion for an education that she and President Barack Obama shared and a willingness to work hard that helped them become successful.
It's a message that young leaders in Africa soon will hear when Mrs. Obama makes her second solo trip abroad as first lady, visiting South Africa and Botswana this coming week.
"In so many ways, I see myself in you all. And I want you to see yourselves in me," she recently told Washington high school students, hoping to inspire them with her personal story.
The weeklong visit, beginning with the first lady's arrival Monday in Johannesburg, is intended to improve relations between the U.S. and Africa and promote youth engagement, education, health and wellness. In the centerpiece speech of the trip, she will appear Wednesday before a U.S.-sponsored forum of young women leaders from sub-Saharan Africa.

You left out the part about the taxpayers having to pay to fly not only her fat ass over there, but her two kids, mom and a niece and nephew. So glad my tax dollars are going to a good cause.

Why anyone would listen to bubble butt or her sorry ass mussie husband is beyond me. I don't care what race you are, they are arrogant, ignorant and liars. Like she came from a humble background and he ever really WORKED a real job a day in his life? F--k both of them. Inspiring future terrorists and community activists is all I see and hear from them. I truly loathe her and him.

It might scare Appalachian WHITE Youth to discover we have a black president.
