• FLOTUS: Museums and Concert Halls Don’t Welcome ‘Non-White’ Kids

    First lady Michelle Obama celebrated the opening of a museum by slamming museums, libraries and concert halls for “not welcoming non-white kids” during a recent speech.

    “Museums and concert halls,” she said, “just don’t welcome non-white visitors – especially children – the way they welcome whites,” Mrs. Obama said at the new Whitney museum in New York City’s meat packing district.

    “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.”

    Obama revealed that she grew up thinking that museums were not places “for someone who looks like me.”

    “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,” she said. “Today, as first lady, I know how that feeling limits the horizons of far too many of our young people.

    Audio of her remarks:

    Uh… museums and concert halls are open to the general public. Do you recall hearing stories on the news of these establishments banning black and Hispanic people or other minorities from visiting the exhibits?

    Isn’t it racist to assume that art museums intimidate racial minorities?

    Liberals push this racially divisive narrative to keep America split and minorities voting Democrat.

    The racial divide has grown ever wider during Barack Obama’s presidency, evidenced by a newly released CBS News/New York Times poll that finds that 61% of Americans say “race relations in the United States are bad, the highest percentage since 1992.”
