Michelle Obama upsets Black Artists Association over Inauguration

the Black Artists Association is taking her to task for not wearing
anything by an African American designer. Cofounder Amnau Eele
“It’s fine and good if you want to be all ‘Kumbaya’ and ‘We
Are the World’ by representing all different countries. But if you are
going to have Isabel Toledo do the inauguration dress, and Jason Wu do
the evening gown, why not have Kevan Hall, B Michael, Stephen Burrows or
any of the other black designers do something too?”

“It’s one thing to look at the world without color but she had
seven slots to wear designer clothes. Why wasn’t she wearing the
clothes of a black designer? That was our moment.”

Ughhhhhh give it a rest people, her main hair stylist is black.
Isn’t that enough?
