The First Lady of the United States was recently bitten by a dancing bug.
As we reported earlier, singer Beyonce reworked her song "Get Me Bodied" as part of Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign to combat childhood obesity. On Tuesday, both the singer and the First Lady appeared at schools in New York and Washington, D.C., respectively to witness students performing the choreographed routine from the song's music video, "Move Your Body," which incorporates dance with exercise.
Mrs. Obama proved that she can rock with the best of them as she went through several dance moves, including The Running Man and The Dougie. We think she gives Wolf Blitzer a run for his money - dance-off, anyone?
Great – I should certainly say I’m impressed with your blog. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related info. It ended up being truly simple to access. Nice job.
Yes there should realize the opportunity to RSS commentary, quite simply, CMS is another on the blog.
Quoting Twisted: "I like to sit in the monkey cage and eat monkey poo." Since you originated from monkeys you are only doing what comes naturally!!!!! You definitely are your father's child!
How can so many people turn this into a race thin? I’m white, and watching this video not once did i think "fat black kid" you people should be ashamed of yourselves. What the first lady is doing is great! She’s out there making a difference. Ignorance is not bliss in this world. We need to attach the problems with our children head on!
I got Down with the first lady this morning! This made me smile! Thanks!
@brett, forgive me for not making myself more clear. i hadn't anticipated having to go into further detail for somone i don't know, but since you weren't rude, i guess i can humor you. My opinion makes sense...i'm sorry if it doesn't to you. Yes, i am racist, but i have friends that are black, mexi, etc. What my earlier post meant was that i am infact prejudice to the people who...how do i put this politely? live their lives playing the race card...i do not come on here to start problems. However, it is a blog so just like some of the other ignorant racist remarks on here i will put mine. I just don't feel the need to add fuel to the fire while i'm doing so. i really hope that makes more sense to you now b/c i'm off the comp for the evening and idk if i'll be back on before this thread expires :( GN yall
Iggy, you are one of the twits that needs to figure out the world is bigger then you. It pains me to see such dribble come out of the mouths of human beings and I bet most of them would answer on a survey that they are Christian, hmmmm. Funny how the white man makes everything out revolve around him as if he is so mighty. Do you have no humility, are you so pumped up to believe that you are all that matters? We are all domed to continue to walk in the darkness never seeing the light, if one falls eventally we all fall my ignorant euglena.
or better still,go back to the zoo you came from.
Great video,Yes the gas prices are high, yes there are still greater issues that need to be taken care of, (Bin Laden no longer on that list), but to forget the reason for her visit to the school and why she's dancing> get the kids in a healthier place. Most of you keep going back to the dumb and stupid comments being made on this thread, hey ignore them< they don't even have the balls to use their real names. Indy
the problem that most(not all) white people on this blog & in america have is simple.Fear! If i paint a painting,it would be foolish of me to sit around everyday calling the painting ugly,since it did not paint itself. We have to admit that there is something wrong in the black community,but where did it come from? Are we all that far removed from reality that we forget that these issues are a DIRECT result of slavery? So most whites sit & worry everyday if black people rise 2 power,will they...
Wow! I love the First Lady of the United States: well educated (by those intelligent to understand what that means), a good mom, beautiful, physically fit, able to dress up or down and still look great, a trendsetter, supportive wife and the list goes on. She just happens to be African American. Oh and the school is not in Harlem...reading is definitely fundamental.
Regardless of how anyone feels about her husband, I LOVE the first lady. She's doing an amazing job working with kids and fighting hard for a change that she truely believes in. Pulling in celebs, music, and dances that todays kids actually enjoy just makes it all the better. Good job Mrs. Obama, go on wicha bad self :)
I find it disgusting that people would call a group of kid ghetto because they are black and dancing. What in this video implies that these kids are ghetto? If it were a bunch of white kids line dancing to Carrie Underwood would that be considered white trash? (See how ignorant that sounds)The purpose of this campaign is to get kids healthy doing activities they already enjoy. Dancing is fun and great exercise. Just like allot of employers who are putting wellness programs in place to help their employee’s live healthier lives and lower insurance premiums. Its about helping kids understand that living and being healthy is a lifestyle and it’s fun. Healthcare is and continues to be a huge issue in America. I’m personally all for this campaign. Being a Black Female Republican the more programs like this that are in place that means less money coming out of my pocket to pay for people who don’t take care of their health. If we teach kids early how to take care of themselves and live healthy the more money we will keep in our own pockets. Some of you need to try thinking past your forehead.
are you ppl for real
you people are amazing! idc what race you are im seeing racism from both sides and its sickening. WHO CARES of obama is an oreo? hes our president and THAT is whats supposed to be important. the black community takes everything negative and makes it about race when its really just that hes a typical politician LIEING about what he is going to do for our country! yes, white people are racist. i CAN tend to be one of them, BUT im the one who calls you out on why i am the way i am and its soo far from being a skin tone issue! ALL of you people need to wake up and realize if we were all blind our physical appearances wouldnt matter none too much and wed have to survive as an economy which is what were simply incapable of doing now! while we have these little racist wars, our economy continues to sink and we are all acting like or hiding from the mean, racist bullies on the playground. im over it! am i the only one? probably, bc ill leave my house this evening to a world of :o ......meaningless racism
Actually, we have to function as a society to "survive as an economy." So the question of race and acceptance is paramount to the US moving into the future. Prosperity for all demands that we decrease disparities across ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic levels.
I am happy to hear that you are "over" racism, while admitting that you are a little racist. Please understand that what you have written here makes no sense. But I am glad that you didn't call people names and make generalizations in the process of drafting your post.
I love this family and I can understand why some people of a different race hate them. They are beautiful, educated, classy, kids in line and doing well and last but not least this family has broken every rule that people believe about black people! So hate on haters its not my fault all the lies that you bought!!!
Im confused....as i recall...about 70 to 80 years ago it didnt matter if yu wer a mulatto...yu wer still considered black and forced to go to segregated schools. why shuld it matter how much white obama has in him now, now that hes president. Please go back to school and get your education
@kingsmom..you must truly hate the skin you are in when you look in the mirror..its sad that at the end of the day..to you they may be ugly and this and that..but at the end of the day they lose no sleep over your measly little life..put up and shutup..u get one shot at life and obviously you are LOSING! I'd hate to be u too...smh
The only thing typical is your ignorance.
LOL. Thats the best you and the entire tribe has got. You have illustrated my point, thank you. One trick ponies everyone of ya. LOL.
PS...maybe just maybe if ya quit listening to CNN or PMSNBC or Joseph "useless" Lowery ya may learn something new. Then again maybe not.
Gas is expensive because oil is expensive. We buy the oil Overseas. The ppl overseas who own the oil refineries control the oil prices. DUH.
If you can't reach out, and help another human being of a different race.. What type of person does that make you.
Typical? In your dreams..racism is typical it take a brain, love and education to respect everyone. Someone should pee on you.
LOL...such a dullard you missed the point entirely. Like I stated...more typical typicalness...LOL.
Wow it amazes me that people come to CNN.com to talk trash about different races. What is this mediatakeout.com. there are idiots in every race as well as very well educated people. There beautiful people in every race as well as ugly. I see people hate the fact that Obama is part black but if he was terrorists and not the presdient then he would be deemed as black. White people you can not use the one drop rule only when it benefits you as a race.
i hate this whole obama family, our first lady should not know how to do the dougie, and if she can who cares, what about telling her husband to lower gas prices, cause it was way under $3 a gallon when he got the keys to the "WHITE HOUSE" not the brown house, so why is it over $4 a gallon know, il tell u why, cause he was to busy doing the dougie with his ugly ass wife and daughters
why don't you stay under ur rock...the world don't need ppl like ur type spreading hate...
You afroAmericans are so typcial. Lets see I can sum up the majority of you pitiful ramblings as follows. Ignorant, racist, bigots, trash, hillbilly, tiny, hatin...yea thats about it.
Just tribe of parrots with not one original thought in all of your heads. Michelle could take a pee in ya face and it would be blessed from on high, GodSent. LMAO at you ridiculous people.
I am certain that many of the descriptors you reference could easily apply to you and there is a reason they keep coming up. So racist have some common themes, surely that is not a surprise to you. Or maybe it is...
Regardless, I can tell by your eloquence that you are an undereducated, white, male, southerner. Either that or you are from Arizona. You are poor, you are alone, and the world is a scary place to you. In essence, you are a child. Based on the comments of yours I have read on this board, you think like a child and joke like a child. I don't understand why you choose to live this way, and I am certain that it isn't working out for you. Of course, all of it is your fault. So, enjoy your lonely and pathetic life.
If we want our children to be healthy and active wouldnt it be better to encourage outdoor activities? A video is watched indoors. Probably sitting on the couch eating snacks. Alot of good that will do. The intentions of the video are good but we need a better way to get results. As I see it its just another media ploy to make the 1st Lady look good. And what a better way to get even more attention than to throw Beyonce in the mix? Come on America! We are smarter than this.
the youth now are obsessed with imitating their favorite celebrity. Notice how every girl in that video knew the the dance and how much fun they were having. I understand your viewpoint about getting out and getting active but this is just a stepping stone to something great.
From the looks of things, it looks like all the white trash was excused from school today....tsk tsk tsk.
god forbid we actually teach kids real education @ school
Yes, because the answer to the most important questions in life are found in text books.
I am speechless at the hatred and the negativity but sadly, not surprised at the cowardice and ignorance hiding behind the keyboard. And if you're going to say mean and hateful things at least know how to spell.
I'm ashamed of the racist, ignorant, hate that has been spewed on this thread but happy to see others who won't stand for it. Mrs. Obama's program is to help all of our nation's kids to be healthier. This is one school she visited. Just because you only care about your white, ignorant children doesn't mean that others out there aren't above your narrow-mindedness. I'm proud to be an American but ashamed that we still have so many horrible citizens who just don't get it. The sad part is, no amount of logic or decency will ever get through to those people.
These people shame themselves, not you, not the country. There is a remedy to ignorance, but none of these folks would be open to the idea of enlightenment or the concept of acceptance.
This phenomena is not confined to the US. The number of hate groups and membership to a hate group is growing globally. Europe has seen a resurgence of the national socialist movement as a response to growing immigrant populations (Russia in particular). This trend is a result of demographic shifts in the ethnic composition of traditionally white countries and may continue for some time.
as I can see some ppl still can't give credit where it is due. at least she's doin something 2 help overweight kids get some self esteem about themselves. kudos michelle. oh I forgot what was it that the bush's or the reagans did for kids that were overweight? I rest my case. besides michelle could beat them dancing sittn down in a chair. they know it 2. u go gurl show ur moves.
I am amazed at the number of miserable people there in the world and especially writing on this wall. Happy people don't have time to spout such garbage. This is really sad!
Who needs to get in bed with a white man, when there are plenty of well educated black men. Get over yourself lol..you wanna be with a black woman don't you..lol but your little pee pee let's you know that you can never fufill that dream. Lol I will pray for you and your tiny manhood tonight.
So, a white guy pretending to be a black woman... Your comments are most helpful.
Most of you guys are ignorant narrow minded racist. It's simply a waste of time to continue to be racist in this day and age. Things have move on, just accept it u guys are notthe majority anymore. I sincerely hope by the time u die your able to make peace with yourselves and your hate.
you disgusting hateful people talking about the first lady like that,you should be ashamed of yourselves.You are just jealous and can't stand that their is a BLACK family living in the white house.Get use to it and go find something else to talk about you racist demonds.
You people still cant get it right. Obama, black daddy, white mommy = MU LA TTO.
There has never been a Black President of the USA.
who knew sasquatch could dougie
Funny......I just took a look at the video......and amazingly enough, MOST of the kids at that school appear to be WHITE!
Mmmmm......by looking at most of the comments, one would've thought that she was somewhere deep in the 'ghetto'.
You people are beyond sad and ignorant. Talk all this junk on the board but I bet you smile in the blackmans face. Black is beautiful, and the black man is running your country. Deal with it. Racist pigs, spreading stereotypes. We prepare your food. Teach your children. Take care of you In the hospitals. We are not going anywhere!! DEAL WITH IT!!!!
"Black is beautiful, and the black man is running your country."
Let me rephrase for you.
Some black women are beatiful and will do anything in bed for a white man and a Mu La TTO is running the Country.
There...much better. You fill the stereotype of stupid black male.
big rob im so sorry you fell the way u do you need to pray because what ever happen to you to be so damaged inside will one day come back to bite u to hate someone that has never harmed you or a love one of yours is just wrong i see there are a lot of people out there that dont like others because the color of there skin why is that i just dont get it we all want the same thing we want to love be loved and have a happy life why would u deny others of that based on skin color
At least someone is looking at the issue of overweight kids in america .... Which is the second largest cause of death here ... And also a huge drain on the medical field as overweight people cost on average 7000 more a year
@the facts: I agree money for supplies and books would help more
I see racism is alive and well in the USA, when will you realize the world is bigger then you, the individual?
@ Dr Who.
I agree with Dr Who. Finally some intelligence and I will repeat his statement...
"Yes black people when will you realize the world is bigger then you, the individual?"
ROBERT VELASQUEZ- As a teenager your voice is MORE important than most. You are the future of this country and do not ever listen to someone who shuts you down like "big Rob". We know this country is flawed and the biggots out there are getting more and more Radical. They are why our country is hated and laughed at around the world. It is very sad. Thank you for taking the time to let most of us know that that we have smart open minded kids out there ready to make a difference. I would suggest getting out of these comment blogs though. I'm not staying to read any responses as it really won't make a difference. It just gets people more angry than they need to be. TAKE CARE.
It's about time someone who is actually HUMAN is in our White House. I am proud that the Obama's are MY President and First Lady!!!!!
Obama could have married someone so much hotter.
If Beyonce wants to help, why not skip one of her multimillion dollar vacations with the hubby and donate that money instead of a song. Ghetto kids have radios. Plenty of songs to dance to already on there. What a joke
i think teaching kids something a little more relevant than ghetto dance moves would be a more important policy of the first lady, but it seems dancing and actin a foo' are easier for the ghetto youth to understand.. easier to grasp than lets say financial responsibility or proper behavior in public.. only in america!
The way I see it is the black community turns a blind eye to its problems and talks a good talk. Thats about it. Now of course the term hillhilly, ignorant, racist, bigot so loosely tossed about should indeed fly my way, if history is any indicator.
However let this cracka living trailer boy state. I love to sleep with black women.
Im white and love to get it on with the black women!!
This B and M road tour is just a silly Farce and will accomplish nothing. Yes, childhood obesity is a problem in every community, however, in the black community I can think of a few things that might take a priority. But as usual the usual suspects applaud another black persons half-hearted attempt at anything. Michelle O couldve pulled down her panties, taken a dump on the floor and the black community wouldve applauded.
Black community problems remain and will continue to do so because of this condoning behaivor.
Michelle is the Best First lady we have ever had.
I am a teenager and I feel bad for all of you unintelligent bigots that are so angry about your unsuccessful sad lives that you feel the need to say that these CHILDREN will end up in prison. Take a look at yourself and realize that your life is pitiful. I really do feel so sorry that you're forever plagued with such deep character flaws. I hope it hurts you to know that a young "potential thug" like me has a brighter future than you ever had! (: Find a new hobby, you're embarrassing yourself here!
Being as you are a teenager your pitiful opinion is pretty much worthless. See your public school has brainwashed you to think it the terms in which you do. When you gain some real life experience then please get back with us. Until then go clean your room, wash your pimple covered pizza face and shut the hell up.
Michelle is a Super person and first lady.
Is this Fox or CNN? It's hard to tell anymore. Give the ugly hateful people a chance to expose what ignorant traier trash parents produce and they find their purpose in life. It isn't much of a purpoe but it's all they have to show for themselves. Your parents must be really gosh darn proud of ya'll toothless wonders who marry their own brother and sisters and probably sleep with their moms and hillbilly daddy's too.
We are all proud of her and think she is a wonderful first lady.
I wanna freak on Michelle O!!
Wow! I spent 22 years in the military defending THIS kind of racism?!?!?
She's wonderful. Love her!
It always amuses me when I read about racism and bigotry insinuating that it is a white trait, when the blacks are just as racist.
Stop blaming the whites for all your woes and stand on your own and make a good life for yourselves.
@Anna, and stop blaming Blacks for everything. Racist Pig.
Are You racist haters at it again?with all the bad things going on in the world,the only thing you can whine about is black people? All that time and hatred wasted on a group of people who dont even know you exist,and wouldnt care if you did.get a life and do something useful for once in your sad life!
Frankly, I am disturbed at the racist comments posted here. I am not surprised at such narrow minded backwards thinking; but I am surprised that you chose the camapaign against childhood obesity by the First Lady to spew your venom. How can you label those middle school children whom you do not know as potentional thugs? If you and your kind are involved in the schools as teachers or administrators, what hope do they have? Not all African Americans are thugs or obese. The campaign against childhood obesity is aimed at all children. This was one event of many. Where were you complaints when the kick-off at the White House featured a largely Caucasian group of children?
Not sure if "common sense" is referring to my comment, as they didn't get my name right. How smart of you to assume I was a foreigner living here when I am an educated American who has lived in forward thinking countries like the ones you mentioned. Not sure I've heard them called liberal brothels before. Never really thought of Canada as a brothel! umm. That's a new one. Anyway, I hope you have a good day. Once you get a little older and start to travel the world, I think your eyes will be opened and you will be embarrassed by the you of today.
Ouch.....Nice job, Elizabeth! I was thinking the same thing about "Common Sense"...in fact, I was quite perplexed he put his name as "Common Sense" because surely he has none! :)
@ Elizabeth, I totally agree! As far as color goes...We cannot help as how we were born! It saddens me to see how sum people are so racist towards different cultures that it is sickening! No matter what color we are we all bleed the same! I just wanna say kudos to the first lady for reaching out and doin this for a cause!
Love it!! It is so obvious that some of you are so envious of black people. If it wasn't for blacks this country would be nothing!!
This is the most racist country I have ever lived in. It shocks me every time I see the ignorant comments posted on multiple websites. America just can't handle a black president and first lady. Land of the free home of the brave? You should be ashamed of how backwards your country is. Racists are cowards. You are just afraid of something that isn't like you. It is ok to be uncomfortable, but it is not ok to hate. Everyone is a human being and no-one is better than anyone one else, no matter what color you are. The sooner you learn that value the better.
Well its apparent that you are quite Stupid so take your ass back to Canada or France or whatever liberal brothel it is you came from.
Seriously how old are you people? Poop and racist jokes? I bet laughing at yourself sounds pretty cool echoing off the walls of you trailer! Seriousoy, try and aft just a little bit more childish...
That's just as bad as the black jokes. Living in a trailer doesn't make you trash. Comments like yours does, though.
I must agree with the black brothers and sisters. Racism, Bigotry are alive, well and thriving at the web page for your local NAACCP chapter.
Instead of teaching these kids the lastest ghetto dance moves perhaps teaching them reading, writing, arithmetic and some how to stay out of jail skills might be the better way to go.
You're not straight out of compton, you're straight out the trailer... bravo to you.... maybe if you would stop cooking meth in your trailer you would come up with better things to say.
Umm they r real ppl. She's a strong woman\down to earth person. Ppl always have to fine something wrong. (nokoolaidcowboy) that's right hide behind your keyboards n try to do that dance in the privacy of ur home lol.
Rich white folk hate "Po white Folks" (ie bloggers, toothless white trash and inbreeds)
Think they would rather be ghetto kds than "po white trash". Even white folks don't like trash. At least blacks embrace their ghetto people.
Wow. I am white and republican, and yet the amount of racist, ignorant crap coming from this board is amazing. I hope you all feel like the horrible people you are. I think this is a great clip! Dancing is great exercise, and as a horrible dancer myself, these kids do a good job (my dancing upholds every white dancing stereotype). And BTW, maybe we can all act like ADULTS this coming election and debate the issues, and not this childish "team Obama/ team Republican (please don't be Trump or Palin)". Two different perspective actually made our country the best in the world. Give up the childish need to be right and win all the time.
White, republican...Sure you are. *POOT* <-smell it.
And there you are. Bravo. (That means "good job" and I am using sarcasm. Google it).
@Jen – As a Democrat I share your view completely. Michelle Obama is dynamic and so lovable. Laura Bush has been a huge reggae fan long before it was "in". Ignorance abounds and racism on both sides.
Ms First Lady. Im not fat but could you teach me my alphabet.
Im so happy the First Lady is not ashamed to be seen associating with the little Fat people. I bet she brought along a pan of cupcakes for the after workout party. And now B and M can wash their hands of these miscreants as they have reached out.
LOL : ) Poor Obamo has to come home to this
I think it would have been beneficial for you to go to one of those predominately black ghetto schools...maybe you would have learned how to spell.
Michelle Obama really is into this health craze for kids isnt she? And with Beyonce to really get their attention its a win/win situation.
She's reminds me of that awesome mom in the crowd of a game that is always the loudest, cheering for her kid's team to win! I LOVE IT!...Many of you fail to recognize that mom knows what she's doing: she motivating others to do the same...This is a great Campaign I am glad to see she has started as an initiative to combat child obesity–what better way to do that than by getting kids to move and get their hearts pumping by dancing...Brilliant.
Well, she is married to the Campaigner N Chief so yes it should be a great campaign.
I think Michelle did a great job, better than a lot of us. She is trying to relate to the youth and their weight issues, look at all the over weight children and adults. I'm sure some of you, that have the rude and out of order comments, can stand to drop a few pounds yourself.
my 4 year old thinks poop jokes rule !
racial jokes are just mean. please dont link them to poop jokes though. poop is classic humor. it is very funny to preschoolers.
Funny alot of you cant hold a job but you are so high and mighty with your lame poop & racial jokes
Wow, the First Lady is really down to earth. I love it! Can't imagine the Bush First Ladies ever reaching out for a cause like this.
As for some of you, racism is alive and well I see. Especially when you can hide behind your keyboards.
"Hide" is absolutely right, my friend. Bigotry and racism are rooted in Fear and Ignorance. Such people are to be pitied in my view for their obvious feelings of inadequacy and powerlessness.
Of course you wont see the Bush ladies acting like this, they are ladies and know how to behave!!!!!
@Anna--Are you serious? A true lady can shed her lady-like behaviour to have some fun with KIDS. Are you a mom? I am and am more than able to be a lady when it calls for it, and am also able to get on the floor and play with my kids. This doesn't make Mrs. Obama any less a lady. If anything it make her MORE likeable because she can actually have some fun. Being First Lady shouldn't equal stiff and conformist. It should equal Innovative and Approachable.
For the record, Wolf Blitzer's Dougie was terrible.
LOL! Good one! LOL!
what a great vid! it's obvious to see the posters who have nary a musical bone in their bodies. still angry over all those years you held up the wall with your backs during the high school dance?
Good answer Ethan...why waste time trying to explain how ignorant they are!
Jemma: You're ignorant! It takes a lot of hard work to be ignorant and it seems that you have mastered the art of ignorance. It is obvious that you evolved from a defective gene pool!
Letting these kids watch me take a deuce in the floor will be just as effective. These harlem kids are aboard a runaway train headed strait to prison and this is what Michelle and Beyonce come up with.
Oh to White privilege! Ignorance must definitely be bliss!
It is people like YOU, that see a black child and automatically assume that they have ZERO future, that are fueling the demise of our country. You should be ashamed of yourself, all of you, making these hateful racist comments- just because OUR FIRST LADY is black and at this particular event she's meeting with black children. You all make me sick. My guess is that half of you are overweight, can't hold a job, and have nothing better to do than hide behind a computer moniker and spew hate towards other people.... espeically children, that would have a hell of a better chance if people would believe in them. It breaks my heart to see the rampant racism that still exists, loud and clear, in this country. SHAME.
LMAO and I'm black.
I like to sit in the monkey cage and eat monkey poo.
Get hooked on phonics!
Well you must be the monkey so eat the poop. LOL
Twisted you are a hateful and jealous little trash.I kow your life is sad and disappointing.Guess you can't hold down a job,can't pay child support and the bills are piling up.Get over yourself and stop taking out your problem on the black community.
Twisted you are a hateful and jealous person.I kow your life is sad and disappointing.Guess you can't hold down a job,can't pay child support and the bills are piling up.Get over yourself and stop taking out your problem on the black community.
