    This was a great show. Refreshing. Yale and Ivy league schools are sad. The prof. talks about the masses like the ‘other’, it did not sit well with me. These elitist babies do not care about anything. They have no heart. No soul. No intellectual spirit. My students are the same way–afraid to speak, afraid to be contentious. I want to smack them! Turning away black women at a party like this is despicable racism. It’s disgusting. And they settle it with a dance off and everyone is happy–pathetic. That’s what is wrong with government today. Nobody cares enough about anything. Change requires passion and bold actions. These kids might as well be in diapers. They disgust me.

    I agree with your guest that there should be more variety on museum walls, and less white men, but I don’t think Renoir sucks. He is ridiculous.
