Rush Limbaugh: Black people don’t like museums because of their ‘cultural upbringing’

Speaking about Michelle Obama’s recent speech at a museum opening, radio host Rush Limbaugh started off his comments wondering why she still has a “chip on her shoulder.”

Speaking about Michelle Obama’s recent speech at a museum opening, radio host Rush Limbaugh started off his comments wondering why she still has a “chip on her shoulder”:

…as though you are an aggrieved victim of something, when you clearly are not. And why not instead take the occasion of your achievement and your accomplishment and motivate and inspire?

He then turned to President Obama’s alleged victim mentality, before returning to the First Lady’s.

It’d be one thing, you know – if they let somebody incarcerated – out of jail to go help open a museum, and started talking about being a victim and this and that, and ‘I can’t believe they let me out of jail to come open this museum.’ But she’s the First Lady of the United States. Why not take the occasion of all this to inspire all these people?

Do you ever stop to think maybe a museum and things like that are not in [black people’s] cultural upbringing, and maybe it should be? Do you think maybe the reason they don’t go there is because places like that are mocked and laughed at? Or what’s the popular phrase – they’re ‘too white’?

Yeah, he said that.

    I don’t see Michele Obama having a chip on her shoulder. Maybe the racist, bigot, hate monger, hypocrite and drug user, Rush Limbo sees it because he’s an idiot and has a guilty conscience! If anyone has an attitude, it’s that POS Limbo! His listeners (sheeple) are no better than he is and are fools to believe a word he says. He uses them for money and notoriety. They are narrow minded and uneducated!

    Theres a grain of truth in what he says and its a sad reflection of black peoples standing in America. People that are marginalized and economicaly ostracized from main stream society tend to have more pressing engagements than visiting museums.

    Michelle Obama is feeding into a ridiculous assumption that black people don’t feel welcome in a museum. Really who says? Where were they told a museum is not for “them”? Maybe if she had ideas and expressions to inspire rather than reinforce a negative she wouldn’t have come off so sour. Why can’t our leaders come from the strength and leadership such as Frederick Douglass?? Now that would be a breath of fresh air not stale rhetoric.

    Mrs. O said it first. Here’s part of what she said. “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.”
