From the article:
" Will its tale be primarily one of pain, focused on America’s history of slavery and racial oppression, and memorializing black suffering? Or will it emphasize the uplifting part of the story, highlighting the richness of African-American culture, celebrating the bravery of civil rights heroes and documenting black “firsts” in fields like music, art, science and sports? Will the story end with the country’s having overcome its shameful history and approaching a state of racial harmony and equality? Or will the museum argue that the legacy of racism is still dominant — and, if so, how will it make that case?"
Black firsts in science? Ummm.
I'm pretty sure that the communists at the Times don't even realize how stupid they sound sucking up to blacks in such an obviously paternalistic manner. Even blacks probably laugh at the way the Times patronizes them, that is when they are not cursing them for being members of the elite that has traditionally "held them down."
You might want to take notice of the usage of the word "Thorny" in the title of this mealy-mouthed article, too. To us here at COTT, the subliminal suggestion is as clear as day: the Times are likening the suffering of modern American blacks to Jesus, who wore a crown of thorns while on the cross.
Since when is a path "thorny," after all? Aren't paths usually bumpy, or muddy, or even torturous?
Once again we see the New York Times using Christianity only when it suits them in the furtherance of their sinister agenda: they will print hundreds of articles on the "church abuse scandal" from incidents that occurred half a century ago, they will sneer at evangelacists and churchgoers, while at the same time trying to make us believe that illegal Mexicans are noble and harmless because they are good Christians.
But we digress...
