Talk about missing the point!

The Black Artists Association has their knickers in a twist because Michelle Obama (delightfully dubbed FLOTUS) didn’t commission any gowns from THEM.  I’m sorry, but they sound like a bunch of whiney white hipsters.  Any honest fashion designer would have started their interview with "THANK GOD I didn’t get mixed up with a collection that included that hideous ball gown made from an old chenille beadspread!"

.

Despite that horrid gown, the Endless Inauguration did have the
positive effect of disabusing me of my last unfortunate stereotype of
Black Folks: neither Barack-0 nor Michelle can dance.  There ain’t no
inborn natural rhythm.  I suppose next Christmas, our new President
will demonstrate  there’s no Santa Claus, either.  Live and learn.

Update
(27 January)  The latest research suggests we ALL are born with natural rhythm.  I guess the Obamas must have outgrown theirs.
