Chicago, Children, and Family: Ballerific Woman: Michelle Obama, From The South Side Of Chicago To The White House @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Ballerific Woman: Michelle Obama, From The South Side Of Chicago To The White House -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are BallerificWomen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is MichelleObama, from the South Side of Chicago to the White House. Our forever First Lady is the true definition of a 'Phenomenal Woman.' She walked into our lives in 2008 and has shown the world the true meaning of love, dedication, family, education, and healthy living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No matter the occasion or event, our First Lady was sure to take over with her elegant and classy sense of style. She was featured in Essence Magazine as one of the ‘World’s Most Inspiring Women’ and appeared on the cover of Vogue and made the Vanity Fair best-dressed list two years in a row. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As our First Lady of the United States, she was not afraid to address the issues at stake. Every speech that she has given has left us with the hope of progress. In her final speech as our FLOTUS, she stated, “Being your First Lady has been the greatest honor of my life and hope I’ve made you proud”..........to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

Af, Batman, and Bless Up: Thought I should share this pic of my tiny wrinkly pup Pic: reddit u/Chris Vin54 @DrSmashlove Last week I was driving on Lower Wacker, a big tunnel that go underneath Chicago. They filmed Batman there. It’s dope because u can drive fast AF and the lights whoosh by u and u feel like Batman for a sec before u come back to reality and realize u just a idiot in a Camry 🤗. So I hit the off ramp to get into the loop. Stopped completely. Long red light? 🤔 12 minutes later tho? Sumting Wong. I get out and walk and see two trucks stuck with they lights blinking. They ain’t going anywhere. And it’s a long, one way ramp. Now I done seent the movies bruv. When the tunnel is locked off like this and cars can’t go nowhere? This is where the Arabian terrorists (played by jewish actors with aggressive beards who do they best Arabic accent but really Issa Israeli accent - I see u Hollywood 🤗😂) jump out and gas everyone. Nah ✋. So I talk to some construction workers and I’m like “I’m backing everybody up” and they like *skrong Chicago accents* “IT’S IMPASSIBLE (impossible) DA CARS CAN’T BACK OUT OFF DA RAMP INTO TRAFFIC”. I’m like “bish watch”. So last car in line, Ol boy in Connie’s pizza truck who was barely onto the ramp? I negotiated with him to back straight back into the main tunnel. Then two sedans. A big a$$ delivery truck. A pickup truck. Basically just promising them it will be ok (it wasn’t Ok, someone could have come around the bend and onto the ramp too fast and killed us but I had to get to lunch with a client bruv if u gon get between me and my money u gon HAVE to kill me 🤗😂). Then me. I drive a lil coupe so I actually did a three point turn into a small loading dock and drove the wrong way out the ramp. The construction workers was like “this a$$hole in a suit did it” and I just waved at them like “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE KEEP GOD FIRST BLESS UP”. I tell this story because everybody on the damn ramp had accepted and resigned themselves to they fate. They was all frantically telling the people at the place they was supposed to be that they’ll be delayed. I wasn’t gonna be resigned to my fate. GET UNSTUCK. IT WILL ENTAIL SOME RISK. BUT HELP YOURSELF AND OTHERS AND WITH GOD’S HELP YOU’LL BREAK FREE AND FLY. BLESS UP ❤️

America, Chicago, and Club: Former President Obama Talks Hitler's Rise in Warning to America; Encourages Citizens to "Pay Attention and Vote" @balleralert Former President Obama Talks Hitler’s Rise in Warning to America; Encourages Citizens to “Pay Attention and Vote” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ America’s forever President BarackObama took the stage in Chicago earlier this week to discuss the current state of politics in America. Obama encouraged voters to stay devoted to democracy, warning of the rise of Nazism in the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You have to tend to this garden of democracy, otherwise things can fall apart fairly quickly. And we’ve seen societies where that happens,” Obama said at the Economic Club of Chicago on Tuesday. “Now, presume there was a ballroom here in Vienna in the late 1920s or ‘30s that looked and seemed as if it, filled with the music and art and literature that was emerging, would continue into perpetuity. And then 60 million people died. An entire world was plunged into chaos. So you got to pay attention – and vote.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite the fact that Obama refused to mention Donald Trump by name, many believed the former president’s comments were in reference to the chaos Trump has caused throughout the country and abroad, with his divisive rhetoric. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Obama also touched on the importance of the free press, which has been attacked by Trump on a consistent basis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “During my presidency, the press often drove me nuts,” he said. “There were times where I thought reporters were ill-informed. There were times where they didn’t actually get the story right. But what I understood was that principle of the free press was vital, and that, as President, part of my job was to make sure that that was maintained.”
