No, President Obama’s performance at the first presidential debate wasn’t anything to write home about, but according to Michelle Obama, President Obama showed up and did what he needed to do with such a poise and genuine honesty that she couldn’t do anything but be proud of him.

FLOTUS is in a small club with that one because instead of being upset with Romney for wanting to give him the axe, Big Bird is upset with President Obama! The nerve! Check out both of these stories and more–all a part of stories smart black chicks should be aware of this week. As always, you’re welcome.
1. Big Bird Is Mad At President Obama, Not Romney
Ok so we recently found out that one of Mitt Romney’s first orders of duty would be to fire Big Bird along with the rest of his PBS friends, but it seems that Big Bird’s not even mad at Romney for that. He’s mad at President Obama! The Sesame Workshop, which runs “Sesame Street,” put out a statement earlier this week asking the Obama campaign to take down an ad that features Big Bird. The ad mocks Romney’s vow to end PBS, making Big Bird look like a criminal. Check out the ad takedown on Huffington Post.
George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman, Jr. has taken a cue from the rest of the Zimmerman clan and hopped on Twitter to voice his disdain with his brother’s trail. He directed messages like these to Natalie Jackson, one of the Martin family’s lawyers:
Robert’s always been an active supporter of his brother and has now started a media tour, including Piers Morgan, as well as a few Spanish-speaking stations. It seems Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara would shut Robert’s diarrhea of the mouth, but O’Mara says that he can’t control Robert. Check out the entire story on The Grio.
Stacey Dash is not new to bad press. The stunning actress is always making headlines for being difficult to work with, being fired and the like. Her latest headlines label her a Republican in full support of Romney. Dash’s support was shunned by many people on Black Twitter and it led to the question: What makes some black Republicans more accepted in the black community than others? Check out the answer to that question on The Root.

Our brother site, NewsOne was hand-picked to be a part of an intimate interview with the FLOTUS.

Check out the full exclusive with Michelle Obama on NewsOne.
The feud between music mavens Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj seems to be more for ratings for the flailing “American Idol” than an actual argument. While I would obviously be #TeamMiMi, I find it interesting that other black journalists think Mariah’s playing both sides of the race card deck. Check out what Clutch Magazine had to say about Mariah Carey’s fake fear.
