Second, the fierce Tyre Banks in this month's issue of Harper's Bazaar. . .In the issue Tyra pays homage to Michelle Obama as she role plays and poses as the First Lady. In the spread she reveals her beliefs and ideas as a model citizen, the fierceness of Abigail Adams, her admiration and fascination with Michelle Obama, and the affect a black president would have on kids today.
"When Barack won the nomination, I just started bawling. I started calling all these people, and everybody was talking to me like I was crazy. They're like, 'Well, he hasn't won yet,' but I'm like, 'Yes, he has, because he's gotten this far.' I think he gives everybody so much hope." […] "I did a talk show, and we were testing racism with little kids. We showed them a picture of a black man in a suit and a picture of a white man in a suit. And we asked, 'Which one can be president?' These kids were all of different races — black, white, everything — and not one of them said that the black man could be president. Not one. So what gives me tears is if Barack Obama wins, kids are going to say that a black man can be president, too.” - Tyra
And lastly, Michelle Obama herself graces the cover of Ebony Magazine with genuine and warming essence.
