First Lady Michelle Obama never lets an opportunity to play the race card go to waste. In what was suppose to be a speech regarding the opening of a museum, the FLOTUS was quick to point out another “white privilege” that Americans have obviously ignored.
During the opening of the Whitney museum in New York City, Michelle took the platform to see how much more division she could cause with some of the race-baiting tactics that she and her husband have mastered. If you had any doubt that the liberal left can find a way to call just about anything racist, here’s all the proof you need.
Thanks to Michelle Obama’s “insight,” we can now add America’s libraries, concert halls, and museums to the list of racist entities plaguing our society. Did you roll your eyes too? She couldn’t let a well-intended celebration get by without throwing in a little more racial divide for a country already rocked by racial tensions.
According to the Michelle, places such as museums and concert halls are not as welcoming to non-white visitors as they are white individuals, saying she grew up thinking that such places were not “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.”
Perhaps if the black community doesn’t feel comfortable in a museum, then they need to evaluate their own culture rather than shifting the blame to the museums or the rest of society. There’s plenty of white country folks that would feel equally uncomfortable in a museum, so skin color really has nothing to do with it at all.
Although I’m not identified as American Indian or Jewish, I didn’t feel unwelcome when I visited the National Museum of the American Indian or the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Oh, but I’m white, so I’m going to feel welcomed everywhere… except for maybe parts of Baltimore or Ferguson — you know, the places recently affected by the race-baiting mentality the first family loves to flaunt at every turn.
