Is the Nelson-Atkins going ghetto?

Review: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Masterpieces of Modern Mexico, from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Is the Nelson-Atkins going ghetto?

By J. Randolph Swope

As has previously been noted both about the KC schools and the KC Ballet, it seems that the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is also going ghetto.  But before I even begin on the "Masterpieces of Modern Mexico," a few words about the Nelson in general.

The Nelson-Atkins has been in full decline for the past decade or so.  The canary in the coalmine was the building of the hideous new wing to the museum.  Whether the wing more resembles a cheap-looking shopping mall or a low-rent airport, I'll leave it to readers.  Regardless, this Walmart aesthetic disgraces the majesty of the original structure of the museum.

Now, on to the new Cultural Marxist exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins.  Yes, I use 'Cultural Marxist' because the motivation behind this exhibit is pure political correctness -- nothing more.  You know, it's all about diversity.

Of course, the last thing proponents of such diversity want is real diversity -- such as the recognition of human biodiversity.  Or the fact that Mexico is a dung-heap of a civilization.  Countless studies show that Mexicans aren't very bright people, and the cause of this lower average Mexican IQ is probably genetic.  But don't let this stop the Cultural Marxists from elevating mestizo artists alongside Michelangelo and Vermeer.

In short, such an exhibit, which appeals to Cultural Marxists, those without any class, or those with lower IQs, only demonstrates that, unfortunately, the Nelson-Atkins, once a great treasure of KC, is slowly going ghetto.

  3. HOLY SH*T.

    What on God's green Earth is wrong with you? Do you only see things as either "for white people" or black or ethnic or Mexican or something?

    So now the Nelson can't celebrate Mexican art?

    Let the racism and any ugliness continue, eh?

    1. This polarization is brought to you by the fine folks at the Attorney General's office in conjunction with Prez Obama.

      When the President of the United States gets involved in a local shooting, where the evidence is not just in question, but falls so short of indictable and says, if he had a son, he would look like the deceased, which in turn, leads to the beatings and deaths of white folks, then I gotta beleive, a little grapeshot across the bow of the civil rights garbage scow is in order.

    2. mo rage who sees everything through the prism of the good liberal vs the evil hillbilly republicans. Irony be thy name. Go read your blog dipshit, then ask yourself the same question you just asked here.

    3. First, "Anonymous" your comment makes no sense (not that you'll get that) and second, people who post as "anonymous" are pussies and cowards.

      But we knew that.

      As for Chuck--please. "..the President of the United States gets involved in a local shooting...and says, if he had a son, he would look like the deceased, which in turn, leads to the beatings and deaths of white folks..."?

      And your direct proof of that is in what non-partisan source?

  4. Race is a social construction, not a biological fact. You need to get some education and some critical thinking skills.

    1. Wrong answer. Only Cultural Marxists deny existence of race.

      Race is very real:

      And modern genetics and evolutionary theory proves it.

  5. Both Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were part of the Mexican Marxist anti-white movement of Amerindians / Mestizos. Kahlo even had an affair with Marxist leader Leon Trotsky. These people were enemies of Western Civilization.

  6. Someone "had an affair with Marxist leader Leon Trotsky"--a sexual affair, I'm assuming you're saying--and that's somehow an indictment?


    You need to read Karl Marx. And with an open mind.

    Not that you ever have or will, of course.
