Amnau Eele is the co-founder of the Black Artist Association is admonishing First Lady Michelle Obama for not wearing works by Black Designers during the Inauguration.
I’m sorry dude, but this is absolutely ridiculous. What difference does it make whether the First Lady is wearing a dress by a Cuban American or an African American? I’m Black and although I like Rocawear, Sean John, and Russell Simmons’ Argyle Culture I don’t have it on 24/7. This is ridiculous. She can wear whatever she wants to wear.
What are you wearing?
Our First Lady is a pretty woman and her dress was equally as beautiful as she is. Just because she’s Black doesn’t mean she’s obligated to wear only Black designed clothes. Why is this an issue? Perhaps the President should have come out in some Black Dickey’s and some Timberland’s with a gold chain with the Presidential Seal, how about that. Maybe the First Lady could have worn one of those Jersey dresses with the #1 on the back. Come on now, this is crazy.
The First Lady was working what she had on, so chill out. Go get yourself a Latte and sit in the corner and roll your eyes at everyone walking by you deem to be a fashion mishap.
Dr. Jill Biden was looking good too, but I guess I’m only supposed to comment on the attractiveness of Black women. Whatever, we have a beautiful woman in the White House and another equally beautiful woman in the Navel Conservatory (VP Residence). Just for added measure Laura Bush was a nice looking woman too. J
