Sorry, I Don't Get It

The Smithsonian Institute has announced the building of another museum in Washington, D.C. This blot on the landscape will be built on the Mall near the Washington Monument and will be the National Museum of African American History and Culture. "Smithsonian officials say the five-acre site will likely include a 350-thousand square-foot building. That would be comparable in size to the institution's National Museum of the American Indian, also located on the mall." according to the AP.

'The black history museum “is in the mainstream of American history, and this site is in the mainstream of the other museums,” said Walter E. Massey, a Smithsonian board member.'

I'm guessing that this means any and all exhibits relating to Black History will be taken out of the museums currently dedicated to American history.

Does anyone else out there agree with me that it's nice to see the Smithsonian Institute doing its part to further segrate and divide our nation on racial grounds? They have already decided that museums of American history can't have anything to do with Indian history, so I guess this decision fits right in with that.

I would have thought that by now we could start judging people by "the content of their character" instead of the color of their skin, regardless that maintaining the opposite is what keeps Je$$e Jack$on, Al $harpton and others in a paycheck. I guess not.

Keep forcing this seperation. Keep drumming into the heads of kids that they're different; they're seperate and not a part of this country.

If this is truly in the "mainstream" (a term I truly despise) of this once great nation, I fear for any chance of us ever overcoming our differences.
