Our Classless First Lady: Museums are for White People

America's most classless First Lady ever joins in the chorus of
race-baiters on blame for the ills of non-white children.

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."
According to Twitchy, Obama’s remarks went largely unnoticed outside of the event, until a local radio host reported on “Museums as White Spaces.”

Michelle Obama clearly illustrates what is wrong with America and it's leadership. Why does she believe "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 ?"  Because she was probably taught to believe so, just as many children today are being taught they have their own 'culture' and should relate only to their own kind, even if it's detrimental to their achievement and success in life.

Or maybe her problem is the museums and halls are filled primarily with the works of people of European decent, the very people who gave her the system of civilization and human advancement that allowed even someone like her the opportunity to become the wife of the most powerful man in the world of the President and First Lady of a country that she seems to so dislike. 

Museums and Concert Halls are filled with a "Cultural Experience" that belongs to humanity, not a skin color. If you feel you don't belong there, that's a prejudicial problem of yours,........and you own it.
