Black designers are pissed at Michelle Obama
In a sign that the grievance culture is not about to end anytime soon, now black gown designers are all pissed off at Michelle Obama because she didn't wear an inaugural gown that was created by a black designer. Isn't this about the most petty gripe you've ever heard of. Are there not bigger problems in this world then this? Is it not good enough for some people that this country has elected it's first black President, and now we have to criticize what they wear? This story just causes so many questions to pop into my head about how are we to get along with others when we can't even get along with ourselves.
