The Obamas will be on "The Broadway" tonight attending "A Raisin in the Sun".... Other recent shows over the last couple years have included "Memphis" "The Addams Family" "Joe Turner's Come and Gone", "The Trip to Bountiful" and "Motown". Interesting choices?

In that they've seen mostly black shows, Reg.

Come on. Don't act stupid.

This is the one area in the entire Obama presidency with a slight bias to black people.

Yes, I connected the dots. I just don't see what's particularly interesting about it.

They're BLACK, and they see a lot of BLACK shows. If that's not interesting, Mr. Roxy's got a mixed metaphor to sell you.

It's not interesting in the least. The Addams Family isn't a "black" show, nor do any of these shows means there's a bias in his presidency.

The Addams Family had some black comedy, though.

Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter and Miss Lillian went to see Carol Channing in Hello, Dolly.

And she said in her autobiography that she was one-eighth black.

Seriously people. This is where your horrific blindness to your own privilege shows itself. You need to just keep quiet if you think it is anything but great when minorities are able to experience the art &c. of people of their minority group.

if "Joe Turner's Come and Gone" how did the Obamas know he'd be at the theater the exact night they went to see the play? Maybe they are just huge fans of Arliss Howard, who's white, thank you very much. Ever think of that???

You know how it works.

If a black person sees a show, then it's a black show.

If a white person sees a show, it's just a show.

If a black person eats at a restaurant, it's a black restaurant.

If a white person eats at a restaurant, it's a restaurant.

If a white person eats a black person, it's Sweeney Todd.

If a black person shows a white person in a restaurant, he'll go to jail for indecent exposure.
