FLOTUS plays race card: Museums are for white people

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.”

The first lady likely won’t be answering that question any time soon. The tone of her speech was eerily similar to her husband’s remarks during the launch of My Brother’s Keeper Alliance in New York City on Monday.

In the wake of racial tension and turmoil that has prompted riots throughout the country, President Obama unleashed some of his most overt commentary on race yet, as documented by Twitchy.

Obama’s remarks came the same day as New York City mourned the death of NYPD Officer Brian Moore, 25, who died after being shot in the head by an armed thug on a Queens’ street last week.

There was no reported mention of Moore’s sacrifice or if it “mattered.”

    She was talking about KIDS that don’t have a lot of money. You know, young people. Just about everyone here is so bound up by your anger and fear that you can’t see.

  2. susandanielspi says:

    Only an affirmative-action fool would say something this stupid. Is it because she’s too dumb to appreciate museums?

  3. GFY1 says:

    Yeah, museums make the morons uncomfortable… just like all places of learning, like schools & the library. “Wez done be needin no edumations and sheit, whize I wana beez goin in dere?”

    They don’t go because it makes them realize how intellectually inferior they are, and also they would have to behave like humans, not wild monkeys. Sorry, no ooking and eeking allowed.

      You mean to tell me they allow trailer trash inbred hillbillies like yourself into museums?

  4. carljones says:

    Amazing how easy it is to get the hillbillies all up in arms over misleading headlines. Michelle was simply suggesting how museums should create ways to attract an audience that typically do not visit museums such as inner city kids. But when you allow race baiting conservative tabloids to SPIN the story to rile up the old racists, this is what you get – a bunch of nincompoops making idiotic/racist comments.

    Well, it is very sad that two people who followed Marxist Liberation Theology (Rev. Wright’s Church), for over 20 years made it into our White House. Either of them care about Blacks or Whites. Its about securing votes, power and control over all of our lives. Loss of liberties and freedoms due to leftist ideology

    Trayvon was NOT killed by a police officer! Sometimes “facts matter”!

    1. carljones says:

      No, he was killed by a NUT “playing” like he was one

    If she enjoys feeling a lack of good cheer and a lack of gratitude then that is her choice. However in her position of influence and privilege one would expect just the opposite.

  8. DwightMann says:

    She is terribly mistaken about her not being welcomed in a museum.
    Nearly every museum in the world would love to have a real sasquatch on exhibit.

    Mrs. Obama, “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.”

    Based on my experiences providing police services to a Brooklyn, NY Rap Hip Hop influenced community, I will guarantee Mrs. Obama there are hundreds of children living within 5 miles of the Whitney Museum who were irresponsibly introduced to a life by immature caregivers who fail to properly nurture and raise their children to be peaceful people.

    In other words there are hundreds of victims of child abuse existing within a few miles of where my president’s wife is speaking.

    At this moment the focus should be on preventing this child abuse so children don’t grow up like Tupac Shakur and Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar, writing rap lyrics describing the child abuse/neglect they suffered or rapping about harming their peaceful neighbors in order to survive.

    In his 2015 Grammy award winning Rap Performance titled “I”, Kendrick Lamar writes, “I’ve been dealing with depression ever since an adolescent.”

    Quoting a January 2011 LAWeekly interview with Kendrick:

    “Lamar’s parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. “My mom’s one of 13 siblings, and they all got six kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton,” he says.

    “I’m 6 years old, seein’ my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin’ dope in front of the apartment. My moms and pops never said nothing, ’cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like ‘Average Joe.'”
