Tuesday Evening Thread: FLOTUS on BET’s 106 & Park Tonight!

Check out excerpts from the interview below! (h/t Cocoafab)

First Lady Michelle Obama is already every woman’s girl crush, but now she’s winning over young people thanks to her visit to BET’s 106 & Park. FLOTUS stopped by for an interview, which airs Tuesday at 6pm EST, and opened up about her daughters, the importance of education and ignoring what the naysayers have to say.  Check out a few excerpts from her interview.

On the advice she would give her daughters about education:
“The same thing that my parents told me. You know, they have to put 120% in your education. And one of the things that I’m hoping to develop is their passion for learning. So many young people just get into the grades and checking the boxes—just doing what they think they’re supposed to do. But there’s also a value in learning how to love to learn, because you’re gonna have to be doing that forever. The way jobs are going now, nothing is set in stone. It’s not like people are working at the same job forever and in the end, getting that gold watch. People are needing to retrain and be able to re-educate themselves so that they stay on top of the jobs of the future. I want my girls to be life-long learners. But I also don’t want them to take anything for granted. They don’t have any excuse not to be outstanding students.

On wanting Sasha and Malia to have the college experience:
“I’ve been talking to my kids about college and getting them to think about how much fun that’s going to be, and getting excited about the possibility of living on a campus with other young people. You know, being able to explore and making it something that they are desperate to get at, you know? I don’t want them staying at home up under me!”

On what she’d tell her younger self:
“You know, that girl was always afraid. You know, I was thinking, maybe I’m not smart enough. Maybe I’m not bright enough. Maybe there are kids that are working harder than me. I was always worrying about disappointing someone or failing. And the thing that I would tell that girl is, ‘Don’t worry about failure because failure is the key to success and you are smart enough to sit at any table and compete and have your voice heard.’ Fortunately, I’ve come to know that.”

On applying and getting accepted to Princeton despite being discouraged by counselors:
“I was breathing a sigh of relief because by then [senior prom], I had gotten into Princeton. Even though there were counselors and people told me that I shouldn’t reach that high—that I didn’t have what it takes to get into a school like Princeton. But I ignored that naysayers, I got myself together, I focused on my application and I sent my forms in. It turned out that my parents could provide some support. I got grants and scholarships. I was flying high because I’d achieved one of my most important goals—after all of the worry and the hard work.”

    Dang! What Michelle said touched me so much. I remember being scared in school, worried that I would not measure up. I knew I had to work harder, give more. I was told by some teachers to forget about college because a “girl like me” would not make it.

    I was over the moon when I got accepted to college (not so fancy as our FLOTUS but fancy enough for me!) I even got a scholarship & I was determined to make good & I did!

    I so love how Michelle Obama shares from her own heart & experience. I hope young girls everywhere are listening & saying to themselves…I CAN DO IT!

    • Alma98

      We’ve always told our children don’t let anyone define you or tell you you’re not good enough. If you want it and work hard for it you can have it. We believed in them, supported them and urged them on. Self belief is a wonderful thing!

      • Aquagranny911

        My parents did the same thing & my Granny was fierce on that also.

    • jds09

      Good for you AG! Where do these teachers and counselors come from? Do legions of kids come back to them thanking them for downsizing their aspirations? The world is better cause you didn’t listen to that bullshit.

      While my son was in a private all boys catholic high school (one of the worst decisions I made as a parent, it was not a good fit) the counselor assumed my son would be the first in his family to attempt to attend college and he was just not cut out for it.

      After controlling my impulse to reach across his desk and slap him, I informed him that on his mother’s side his great-grandmother attended college and his grandmother on his father’s side. He was stunned. That moment is still funny.

      • Aquagranny911

        I am enjoying that moment with you after myself suffering some years of catholic education in their schools of the 1950′s which was hell on earth sometimes. There were one or two who actually helped & encouraged me. I still bless them.

    Obama announces $100M in education grants for high school students
    By Justin Sink – 11/19/13 01:32 PM EST

    President Obama will announce $100 million in education grants for high school students during an appearance Tuesday at a meeting of chief executives in Washington.

    The government will award as many as 40 grants to fund the Youth CareerConnect program, which is designed to partner high schools with colleges and employers. “Many high school graduates lack exposure to learning that links their work in school to college and careers — especially in the critically important fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics,” the White House said in a statement.

    The program will be paid for primarily from Department of Labor revenues from the H-1B visa program.

      My arm always hurts after a flu shot but never for 3 weeks. Check for redness and warmth at injection site. No, I’m not a doctor but I’m a regular visitor to Webmd.

        OMG, i just checked and noticed my shoulder is swollen

        • Aquagranny911

          See your Doc as soon as you can. I just read that if they give the shot too high on your arm it can cause problems because it doesn’t go to the right place in the muscle.

          Also, I was told that as soon as you get the shot you should move & exercise that arm as much as possible to disperse the shot & reduce pain & soreness.

          Don’t panic too much. Some people who give shots are just ham handed & they will make you sore for a couple of weeks. But do see your Doc.

        New Orleans Style Stuffed Bell Peppers (before I put them in the oven to bake). After baking they should look like this.

        • crazycanuck

          lamh what do you stuff them with?

          • lamh36

            Usually ground beef and shrimp and seasoning, but my aunt does shrimp and crab meat. We love our seafood in NOLA

          • crazycanuck

            I’ll try it with shrimp, since I don’t eat beef. Could you post the recipe?

          • lamh36

            I’ve never had it without beef. The shrimps are actually more like an non-essential ingredient (it can be taken out for people who dont’ eat seafood or shrimp).

            If you dont’ eat beef, I’d suggest any other meat that can be ground, or a meat substitute. the shrimp alone would not have the same consistency.

            But Here is a good recipe:

          • crazycanuck

            Thanks Lamh, the only meat I really eat is chicken, maybe I can use ground chicken.

          • Aquagranny911

            I don’t know why not. I substitute ground turkey or ground chicken for lots of recipes that call for beef. If you use the chicken, use the dark meat instead of the white. It will taste & work a lot better. I don’t know if yours will but my market will grind chicken thighs for me when I ask.

          • lamh36

            Agree with Aquagranny. I’ve used ground turkey to make meatballs and it was just as good as beef.

            I’ve never used ground chicken, but if turnkey works, then chicken should too. but I do agree with AG, go for dark meat, white meat tends to be too dry

        • Aquagranny911

          I love stuffed peppers! These look & sound delish! I never thought about using shrimp. I do mine more southwest style with chilies & Mexican seasonings. Sometimes I even add black beans & some rice & top with cheese. Sis does hers with nixtamal, a type of Mexican hominy. And of course we do stuff peppers & chilies with all kinds of cheese.

          • lamh36

            I’ve atually had stuff jalapenos peppers when I was in DFW. It was amazing to realize that people outside of NOLA do their stuffed bell pepeprs differently.

          • Aquagranny911

            LOL! We spice ours up & stuff them with what ever is handy. When I was a kiddo, stuffed peppers use to be a way to use up leftovers. I’ve eaten them stuffed with just about anything that wasn’t walking!

    There were slightly more than 21,000 stops for July, August and
    September, after police changed training methods. There were 106,000 stops during the same months last year.

    Officers recovered 99 firearms, down from 198 last year, and 463
    knives, down from 1,016, according to the quarterly data provided to the City Council.
    – -SNIP –

    – -The head of the New York Civil Liberties Union, Donna Lieberman, said the precipitous drop in stops is good news and proves the city, which is on track to have a record low number of murders this year, can stay safe without excessively stopping and frisking people.

    I think I’ve read one of the most ridiculous comments on political wire. Someone said that the Obama administration knowing that the website had potential problems is worse than the bush administration ignoring the intelligence report about a possible 9/11 attack. The person was lambasted but I think this episode has truly exposed how deranged the Obama haters are.

    • Miranda

      It is mindboggling how stupid people have become over the course of this Presidency. So a website being created and expected to debut in October, was reported to have problems in March…big fucking whoop. I have never worked on ANY project that was going to take months to come to fruition where as updates and reports are provided, there are issues and problems…..how is this surprising? Do people think back in March, the administration was told “oh yeah, the problems are sooooo bad that there is no possible way we can have it ready in October.”…are people literally THIS DAMN DUMB?

    So wait…..alcoholism makes you want to do cocaine?

    Freshman Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.) has been charged with possession of a controlled substance.
    According to court charging documents, on Oct. 29, Radel “unlawfully, knowingly and intentionally possessed” a quantity of cocaine. The charges are as a result of a D.C. Superior Court Grand Jury indictment.

    Radel was charged Tuesday and will be arraigned Wednesday. He faces a maximum of 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

    In a statement, he said problems with alcohol led to an “extremely irresponsible choice” and said he will seek treatment.

    “I’m profoundly sorry to let down my family, particularly my wife and son, and the people of Southwest Florida,” Radel said. “I struggle with the disease of alcoholism, and this led to an extremely irresponsible choice. As the father of a young son and a husband to a loving wife, I need to get help so I can be a better man for both of them.”

      • nathkatun7

        Well, Aquagranny, the “white privilege” answer is NO! Unlike those colored people, languishing in prisons because of drugs, the Congressman is not a criminal. He is just struggling “with the disease of alcoholism,” which made him so sick that he had to purchase some cocaine to control his alcohol disease. Besides, It’s not like Radel was doing crack cocaine like those criminals in the “inner cities,” who must never be allowed to use an excuse that they used cocaine because their were “struggling from the disease of alcoholism.

    Guidance counselors STAY telling black kids not to apply to this or that college, that maybe community college or just getting a job is more their speed, even when that kid is in college prep/AP classes……………..

    • itgurl_29

      At my school, they used to ban anyone who didn’t have a B average from getting an SAT application from the counselors office. So if you and your family weren’t familiar with the SATs and the process of preparing for college, you would not have known that what they were doing was wrong and you just would have accepted it. I can only imagine the number of black kids and poor kids who didn’t take the SAT because of that. And this was in the late 90s when I was in high school. They pull all kinds of stunts to keep us from getting into college. It’s crazy. That’s why I’m glad FLOTUS always tells her story. We know EXACTLY what she’s talking about.

      • Town

        And THEY know EXACTLY what she’s (and he) talking about too, which is why they want to shut them up.

          Which is why I rejoiced when I read the NYT article saying FLOTUS was gonna focus on low income teend (read:black and Latino) going to college. She’s basically gonna go around the country telling every child who’s been told by a guidance counselor or friends that they can’t accomplish anything that the devil is a liar, go to college and get training in something because she did it and PBO did, too.

      • JojoRaze

        This sounds like something the Duncan DOE or the Holder Justice dept would crank down on with the quickness now. I heard all these stories about black aand Latino kids getting the shaft during college counseling when I was an early teen that I thought they were gonna do the same to me. But all the college counselors at my high school were black or Latino and they were wondering why I didn’t apply to more hoity-toity schools. Those counsellors worked their butt off and their goal was everyone is going to college, whether the community college, tech school or Harvard. They found a fit for you.

          That is absolutely the way it should be, Jojo. I am so glad this is the way it was for you and your school mates.

      I will never forget when a COLLEGE PROFESSOR of mine, after I got the ONLY “A” in the damn class, told me that I just must have been lucky. #ratbastard

      That right there is proof that’s not her body in the Bound 2 video. She was looking sleek & slim in the video but looks like a gallon of milk in that picture.

        ROTFL! Let that bebe North have some of that. Is she nursing? She should be doing the dairy bar for triplets!

      • itgurl_29

        This pic is just from two weeks ago. She’s short, wide, and hefty. They photo-shopped away most of her body. Because Kim K hasn’t been that slim since 8th grade.

    Detroit teen called hero as he knocks friend off live power line – -

    – - -It was supposed to be like any Monday morning, with students heading to class at the start of a new school week. But at Burns
    Elementary/Middle School in Detroit, classes had been canceled because of a power outage.

    For four boys at the school, the walk home on the unexpected day off turned tragic, with one of them hospitalized Monday after he was shocked by a downed wire near the school.

    Police say he may have only survived it because of the quick thinking of Kenneth Gaylor, 13, who used a piece of wood to knock his 14-year-old friend off the live wire as he was being shocked. The school’s principal was then able to perform CPR.

    “(He) potentially saved the boy’s life,” Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody said of Kenneth. “He’s a hero today.”

      Nobody but NOBODY should ever feel pity for that disgusting piece of caca. He got away with killing a helpless young boy when he should have gone to prison. He, his nasty familiy & his lawyers made mega $$$ off this.

      There is no hell deep enough for him & those who enabled & keep enabling him in his downward spiral. For any who would keep supporting him now, shame should follow them all the days of their lives!

    Don Lemon Wins At Black People’s Expense
    By Michael Arceneaux

    Ever since CNN anchor Don Lemon (pictured) decided to start editorializing, he has not shown himself to be a serious thinker. Lemon has developed a knack for trivializing complicated sociopolitical issues affecting people of color, mostly by offering personal anecdotes to argue positions that could be easily debunked with data, such as when he peddled the silly little idea that if all Blacks just put on a belt and stopped calling each other “nigga,” everything would be okay. Don Lemon should know a style of dress or subtracting words from your lexicon won’t necessarily make you less susceptible to racism. It didn’t go away for him in 2001 when he sued a department store for racially profiling him.

    Then there’s the reality that Lemon often proves himself to be just as culturally ignorant as the older White audiences he’s whispering sweet nothings (about those wayward Blacks) to. You know, like the time Don Lemon came out of the closet and threw Black people under the bus by agreeing that Black people are more homophobic than Whites. Meanwhile, Blacks make up the largest bloc of the LGBT community. As in identified gay. Yeah, there goes your little “down-low-brother” myth too.

    You would think one of the most-visible gay Black men in media would be fighting the stereotypes plaguing people like him and the collective community to which he is a part of.

    Instead, he’s been nothing but a boil on the butt of common sense — cheerleading vigorously for the ideas from the greatest hits collection of systematic racism.
