      Michele Obama is NOT beautiful. In fact, many people i know think she is plain ugly. Whose butt are you trying to kiss but placing her in this poll?

      I know. I agree with DynamicS. Alicia Keys is beautiful! All these women of color actresses are beautiful. It is sad that they aren't on TV as much as their White counterparts.
