A GREAT UNIVERSITY AND A GREAT FIRST LADY!

I applauded Mrs. Obama for taking time out to come to the Howard University panel on Black History. This should be an example to other Blacks who are in higher position to take the time out to not only come out to events such as this regarding issues in the Black community, but to also to show support( time, money, resources,etc).

It seems that once certain Blacks are in the position to start helping and supporting other Blacks who are in dire need and want to be help, they seem to have forgotten about those people who are once where they used to be.

I hope that President Obama and his wife, Mrs. Michelle Obama continue to reach out to support, uplifted,and bring resources the Black community and make sure that the Black community is doing their part to meet the President so our race can continue to grow and grow successful. If we don't we have no one to blame but ourselves.

THE PRESIDENT AND MRS. OBAMA HAVE PUT THE WORD
OUT THAT THEY WILL BE VERY ACTIVE IN THE
WASHINGTON D.C. AREA, AND IF THE FIRST 3 WEEKS
ARE A MEASURING STICK, D.C. IS GOING TO BE IN FOR
A GOOD TIME BY THE PRESIDENT AND HIS GREAT WIFE!
ISN'T IT GREAT TO SEE A VISIBLE PRESIDENT!

It's wonderful that she attended the panel!!

what resources to the black community? themselves? i got a family. maybe you need to take a look at his state senate district and his record there, back in illinois. hasn't the guy told you he's president of 'all america'? perhaps folk are hearing what they want to hear. perhaps you should read what's happened to education in the 'stimulus' package.

ur tha bestest i love u and i hope to see u in real life love always latanya andrea ross bye now love ya
