First lady Michelle Obama used a speech Monday that was supposed to be celebrating the opening of a new museum to instead dig deeper the racial divide that’s been growing ever wider during her husband’s presidency.
“Museums and concert halls,” she said, just don’t welcome non-white visitors – especially children – the way they welcome whites.
Speaking at the new Whitney museum in New York City’s meat packing district last week, Obama said she grew up thinking that museums were not places “for someone who looks like me.”
“You see, there are so many kids in this country who look at places like museums and concert halls and other cultural centers and they think to themselves, well, that’s not a place for me, for someone who looks like me, for someone who comes from my neighborhood. In fact, I guarantee you that right now, there are kids living less than a mile from here who would never in a million years dream that they would be welcome in this museum.
“And growing up on the South Side of Chicago, I was one of those kids myself. So I know that feeling of not belonging in a place like this. And today, as first lady, I know how that feeling limits the horizons of far too many of our young people.First off, she just told a whole bunch of museum workers that they were racist bastards who didn't want any one of color in the museum.
|Why didn't you let me go to a museum??|
Thirdly, there are not any little black kids within a mile of that museum giving it one damn thought. They probably don't even know what a museum is. Did I go to museums when I was a kid. You betcha, 'cause my mom and dad took me to them.
And finally she's claiming she was one of those poor oppressed blacks who wondered why she was not welcome in a museum. Give me a break. She grew up in a middle class family with a father and mother who had gainful employment and she's claiming she didn't feel welcome at a museum? Ask your bitter undignified mother why she didn't take you to a museum and quit blaming whitey.
And further more, ask yourself why your form of "culture" is inundating your own kids with the likes of a nearly nude Beyonce writhing in the White House and calling her a "role model."
Who can forget this display of class and dignity:
