'Making Mistakes Was Not an Option.' Michelle Obama on the Pressure of Being 'The First'

'Making Mistakes Was Not an Option.' Michelle Obama on the Pressure of Being 'The First'

Fomer First Lady Michelle Obama opened up about race and the elevated expectations that come with being “the first” while speaking at the American Library Association’s annual conference in New Orleans on Friday.
“Barack and I knew very early that we would be measured by a different yardstick,” Obama said of her husband’s tenure as the nation’s first black president during a conversation with Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden. “Making mistakes was not an option for us. Not that we didn’t make mistakes, but we had to be good — no, we had to be outstanding — at everything we did….When you’re the first, you’re the one that’s laying the red carpet down for others to follow.” Obama, who spoke during the conference’s opening general sessions, also emphasized the need to look beyond a person’s color.

His boy was shot, covered in a sheet but was still breathing.

The father of a Chicago teenager who was among six people hit by gunfire said Wednesday he will put aside grieving until he gets answers as to why his son was covered in a sheet for an extended period when he was still alive. Eric Carey's son, Erin, died later at a hospital. Officials said paramedics treating him at the scene thought he was dead or mortally wounded. Bystanders at the scene of the shooting alerted first responders that the 17-year-old recent high school graduate appeared to be breathing and moving. Erin Carey died hours later.

Shaq told ex-teammate who protested during national anthem in 1996: 'That's tripping'

Despite his pro-police stance, O’Neal doesn’t offer a strong opinion on most topics — a rarity in today’s Twitterverse. On Kaepernick, he says, “I have nothing bad to say about the guy, but if I was making a stand, I probably would have got about 500 top athletes, set up a press conference, invite everybody to say something and come out on TV,” he says. People forget that Kaepernick isn’t the first to balk at standing during the anthem. Denver Nuggets guard Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was doing it back in 1996. “I called him and said, ‘Hey, bro, you don’t want to be standing for the anthem, just stay in the back, you know? ’Cause you’re starting to offend some people,” he says of his ex-LSU teammate. “I was like, ‘Look, man, that’s tripping. Stay in the tunnel. Don’t come out.’ ”

Body of high school student found dead in rolled-up gym mat to be exhumed for second time

The parents of Kendrick Johnson asked Valdosta City officials to exhume his body, which is set to occur on Friday. This will be the third autopsy on Johnson. His mother, Jackie, wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday that it breaks her heart to exhume her son’s body, but that it “has to be done.” “Lord this again is one [of the] hard things to bear in life, [which is] the death of a child. On Friday June 22 my son Kendrick Kj Johnson body will be exhumed for the 2nd time to have a 3rd autopsy done, Lord to have to disturb his resting place breaks my heart into so many pieces, but it has to be done.

Kendrick's dead body was found lodged inside the gym mat in Lowndes High School in January 2013. The first a…

What is Juneteenth? We explain the holiday that commemorates the end of slavery

What is Juneteenth? We explain the holiday that commemorates the end of slavery

What is Juneteenth?  On June 19, 1865, Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger came to Galveston, Texas, to inform a reluctant community that President Abraham Lincoln two years earlier had freed the slaves and to press locals to comply with his directive.  Why did it take so long for the news to get to Texas?  There is no one reason why there was a 2½-year delay in letting Texas know about the abolition of slavery in the United States, according to Juneteenth.com. The historical site said some accounts place the delay on a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with the news, while others say the news was deliberately withheld.

Officer's 'racist' posts key to Sterling Brown suit against Milwaukee police

Officer's 'racist' posts key to Sterling Brown suit against Milwaukee police

The NBA's Sterling Brown, who was tased and arrested earlier this year after an altercation stemming from a parking violation, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the city of Milwaukee, the police chief and the eight officers involved in his arrest. Key to the suit will be one of the officers' alleged social media posts, which appear to celebrate the actions of the officers, three of whom were suspended without pay. Though an initial police reportdescribed Brown as aggressive, Police Chief Alfonso Morales has since apologized for the officers' behavior, saying they acted "inappropriately." Mayor Tom Barrett said, "No citizen should be treated this way." The lawsuit alleges, among other things, unlawful arrest, excessive use of force and violation of the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause. It also accuses the officers of collaborating to conceal their actions. …

City where many slaves entered US to apologize for slavery

City where many slaves entered US to apologize for slavery

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina city where almost half of all the slaves brought to the United States first set foot on American soil is ready to apologize for its role in the slave trade. The resolution expected to be passed by the Charleston City Council on Tuesday offers a denouncement of slavery, a promise of tolerance in the future and a proposal for an office of racial reconciliation. The vote will be full of symbolism when it is taken by a majority-white council that meets in a City Hall built by slaves. It will happen less than a mile (1.5 kilometers) from the old wharf where slave ships unloaded - soon to be the site of a $75 million African-American history museum. Tuesday is also "Juneteenth," a celebration of the end of slavery and just two days after the third anniversary of the racist attack by a white man that killed nine black church members at Emanuel AME church - a target picked in part by…

Jesse Lee Peterson "Racism doesn't exist."
I agree with alot of wat he says. But racism doesnt exist? Tell that to the kkk and neo nazi groups who still march and hold meetings. Tell that to the people in power like donald sterling who just havent been caught. Tell that to all the news storys and headlines of racist cops, judges and politicians, mass shooters and all the other racists u c online and in every comment section on the web. Why did bill clinton apologize for the crime bill? Why did the supreme court find the NYFD guilty of racial discrimination against minorities? Why did the police chief president apologize to black people in 2016? #thenewafricanamericanflag#theiconiumfoundation

Michelle Obama joins Laura Bush in taking on Trump's immigration policy

Michelle Obama joins Laura Bush in taking on Trump's immigration policy

Former first lady Michelle Obama just weighed in on the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, and she's calling on members of all parties to wake up and take action. Over the course of a six-week period, nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents at the border due to strict immigration policies. Now, immigrants who cross the border, including refugees seeking asylum, must be detained, which means their children are taken from their custody and sent to detention centers. 
On Sunday, former first lady Laura Bush published an op-ed in The Washington Post to address her concerns with the harmful policies, titled,"Separating children from their parents at the border 'breaks my heart.'" "I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zeo-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immo…

'Black Panther' star Chadwick Boseman hands over 'Best Hero' award to James Shaw Jr.

'Black Panther' star Chadwick Boseman hands over 'Best Hero' award to James Shaw Jr.
Not all heroes wear capes, or Wakandan catsuits. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman handed over his "Best Hero" award at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards to a real-life hero.
In his acceptance speech on Saturday, Boseman thanked the incredibly brave James Shaw Jr., the 29-year-old who disarmed the Waffle House shooter without being armed himself, likely saving many lives in the process.  "Receiving an award for playing a superhero is amazing, but it's even greater to acknowledge the heroes that we have in real life," Boseman said on stage, given his award by Olivia Munn and Zazie Beetz.

Texas deputy sexually assaulted undocumented immigrant's child, sheriff says

Texas deputy sexually assaulted undocumented immigrant's child, sheriff says

A Texas sheriff's deputy was being held Monday on a charge of "super aggravated sexual assault" of a 4-year-old girl after authorities say her mother, an undocumented immigrant, was being blackmailed to stay silent about the abuse — or face deportation. Jose Nunez, a 47-year-old detention officer with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, was arrested early Sunday while he was off-duty after the mother took her daughter to a local fire station for help, officials said at a news conference.

D.C. Is Being Sued For Gentrifying. Here's What To Know About The Case

D.C. Is Being Sued For Gentrifying. Here's What To Know About The Case

A D.C. lawyer has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the city on behalf of three native Washingtonians and CARE, a community group with over 20 members. The suit claims that the city’s housing and urban renewal policies have discriminated against some of the District’s longest-standing residents in favor of attracting millennial renters. The suit is seeking more than $1 billion in damages. So, what exactly does it allege? The complaint points specifically to city policies like the Adrian Fenty Administration’s Creative Action Agenda and Vincent Gray’s Creative Economy Strategy, which are specifically geared toward remaking D.C. as a city for “creative” workers. According to Aristotle Theresa, the lawyer who filed the suit, the city’s successful attempts to attract these kinds of workers have come at the cost of D.C.’s low and middle-income African American families, who have been pushed out of the city by sky…

Detroit church wants black men as leaders for youth

Detroit church wants black men as leaders for youth

A stream of black men of all ages and stations in life walked the right side aisle in a line, then filled in, pew by pew, the entire middle section of the church as women sat in the sections to the right and left. The service, called 200 Men in Worship, was intended not as an event, said the Rev. Darryl Williams, leader of the congregation, but as the start of a movement.  Williams, who became the church's pastor in October, said he was approached recently and asked why he doesn't participate in the men's ministry. His response: I can have coffee at home.

Jeff Sessions Cites Old Passage Used By Slave Owners To Defend Donald Trump

Jeff Sessions Cites Old Passage Used By Slave Owners To Defend Donald Trump

Jeff Sessions tried to defend Trump's child separation policy. It doesn't help that Jeff Sessions is a bit wiener, so when he deliberately crosses the line, it hits like a belly flop. The Attorney General of the United States continued his defence of Donald Trump, this time citing a controversial Bible passage to get his point across. It just so happens the passage was one that's been general disregarded since the Civil War, due to the fact it was used by Slaveholders to defend slavery. According to NBC, the following citation is the exact transcript of his speech: "Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution. I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order. Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful." O…

Chester teen punched in face by man at Virginia Beach soccer tournament

Chester teen punched in face by man at Virginia Beach soccer tournament

CHESTER, Va. -- A 14-year-old boy is recovering after he was assaulted by the father of an opponent during a large soccer tournament in Virginia Beach, according to the victim's family. The Vickerie family from Chester traveled to the Oceanfront to watch their son, Timothy, play in the North American Sand Soccer Championship (NASSC) last weekend. The tournament draws more than 10,000 players and hundreds of teams to the area. "It’s a fun weekend and something we look forward to. It’s our second year doing it and we were looking forward to it," Timothy Vickerie explained. However, during the end of a close 5-4 game dozens witnessed the Vickerie's son and an opponent fight for a ball on Saturday. Jennifer Moss, who traveled to the tournament from Bon Air with her son, was watching the game from the sidelines.
