Did you hear about the First Lady playing the race card at the dedication of the Whitney Museum in New York?
In 2008, I wonder many voters thought the election of black president would put an end to the racial divide they imagined in this country. Actually, he’s made matters worse as he sends in his Department of Justice; first Eric Holder and now Loretta Lynch, to interfere in state and local matters.
Enter the First Lady, Michele Obama. Speaking at the dedication of the $429 million Whitney museum, she told the assembled audience that museums and other cultural centers are really only welcoming to white people.
“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,” she said. “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,” she added.
If that’s true, why is that so? Could it be their upbringing? And what has she and the President done in the past six years to correct that? All they do is throw our money at worthless projects, and Baltimore is the perfect example. Some $2 billion of the stimulus went to Baltimore alone.
I don’t suppose the First Lady is aware that there are at least 20 museums of varied interests in Baltimore. Since blacks make up 63 per cent of Baltimore’s population, and the white percentage is just 29 per cent, are those museums being funded just for the whites?
We can imagine the curators at the Whitney scurrying around trying to come up with visitation programs for New York’s intercity blacks. Not.
