Chief Art Curator of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Ousted over racism claim

The community had been calling for the museum to display art from more diverse artists, and the Chief Curator agreed. However, he said that while he would focus on collecting future art from women and POCs to get to parity faster, he would not completely stop collecting art from white males because otherwise they would miss out on some great art, and it would also be reverse racism to completely shun them.

That last bit about reverse racism did it, and after the presentation, the angry NPCs collected and filed a change.org petition, called him a racist, white supremacist, and called for his job. He quit.

There's a video which starts right at the point where he says the above, and they have a slideshow behind the presenters, and its all filled with radical feminist, patriarchy, decolonize, transgender, leftist junk. The whole room is womyn, and the other womyn on stage seem to be hostile towards maleness, while virtue signaling their victimhood. No wonder the guy got the hell out of there and quit. He's been with the Museum for many years and is a highly esteemed Curator nationwide.



Our world is burning.

I guess they need to display more third world finger painting by children, preferably those ones on TV that are starving, have cleft palates, etc.

The Left eats its own.

The Right does not.

We just have to hang out until they deplete themselves.

You can bitch and moan about it, or you can take action.

A simple way would be to boycott the businesses responsible for this repression, and also let them know that you have.

For example, Robert J. Fisher is chair of the board of trustees of SFMOMA. He is also the chairman of the Gap, Inc. Quit buying GAP crap and write to them to let them know why.

Mimi Haas, Vice chair of the SFMOMO board, is a billionaire director of the Levi Strauss company. Quit buying Levi's and write to the company and let them know why.

If you disagree with the Washington Redskins name change initiative, quit using FedEx and Comcast, and quit buying Nikes. And write to the company and let them know why.

Sure about that? Look how many corporations are kowtowing to BLM and Antifa. A few years back, would you have believed the NFL would support "Hand Up, Don't Shot," BLM, have a "Black" National Anthem while taking a knee for the actual National Anthem, plus allow leftist causes to be decaled on players uniform while specifically prohibiting any that honored fallen police officers?

I think Americans need to take major action against the left. Inaction isn't working well, even if eventually they may collapse themselves, they will take a lot of others with them on their path that may take a very long time.

"Punch a Commie!" has a nice ring to it.

He was ousted for NOT being racist, in the new politically correct sense.
