Paint the White House black!
Paint the White House black!
For almost as long as history itself has been recorded, there have been various accounts of wrongdoings that have impacted many of the minority race. For centuries, the white race was thought to be the supreme race. Often times if you were not white, you were sold to be a slave or were beaten and mistreated. These things are still going on today with meetings such as KKK rallies as well as other white supremacist marches and rallies. In addition to these rallies, there are still shootings occurring in which an armed white individual might shoot an unarmed colored individual with the intention to kill just because of the color of their skin. It is still very evident in today's world that some of the minority are just being very mistreated. We need to get on track to put a stop to this.
So what would painting the White House black do you might ask yourself? Well, it would do a lot of things. Here are some of the things that it would have the capability of doing.
1. Painting the White House black would give the minorities, as well as the majority, a sense of enlightenment. It would give almost everyone a sense of peace and a resurrection of the belief that "all men are created equal". This newfound sense of peace will not only be good for the population, but it would be good for the government as well. In an era where the government and its officials are being criticized for the way they can sometimes treat members of the "minority", it will shed a good light on them for a change. It would make everyone realize that the government DOES have good intentions and that they are viewing everyone as equal.
2. Painting the White House black would give the whole plot of land a much nicer color scheme. If it were decided beneficial to paint the White House black, not only would it give enlightenment, but it would also create a much nicer color scheme. As represented by the image below, it creates a brilliant contrast with the bright green grass, as well as the blue water of the fountain. Tourists likely are much more taken aback than if the house stayed painted a bland, boring white color. https://goo.gl/lwZ7sw
3. Painting the White House black would give the nation a brighter image. If you are not yet convinced that the White House should be painted, listen to this. I'm positive that if we changed the color of the White House, it would drastically change the way other nations perceived us. If other nations see how we overcame our struggle for equality by changing such a dominant part of the American Culture, they would look upon us with beaming eyes. Countries would start realizing that maybe we are not, in fact, the troubled nation that we once were. Maybe even us, the stubborn citizens and politicians of America, can overcome even the direst of situations. Once the world views America as this, and not a nation of crazed fast food eaters, the sky is the limit for the people and leaders of this great nation.
The re-painting of the White House would sure be a huge step in the right direction for the United States of America. We must all join together and take a stand against racism and "white privilege".
