won't make attendance goal (even after spending more than 9 million dollars to open)
(snip) The museum's annual budget is about $3 million with the money coming from ticket sales, special programs and corporate contributions. The museum also hosts three fundraising events to help with operating funds. No public money is used for daily operations.

every other commercial on TV these days shows that we are out of the discrimination era. But if they want visitors, I suggest they make a few commercials showing more dumb white guys, obediently following their much smarter wives who are deeply infatuated with the conversation they are having with the very intelligent and masculine black man. That would draw them in by the millions...
There are a good handful of people in Greensboro who have become very, very rich off this museum.
There's lots of those millions that have wound up in the pockets of a select few. No one can mention who, though. 'Twould be racist to notice such things.
A compulsory trip for elementary school kids is exactly all this waste of space is. I drive by it every day as I go to work, and the only time I see people inside are when I see a bunch of school buses parked in the street.
To me this shows that while the civil rights movement of the ‘60s was needed, and a welcome relief, compared to the continuing world-wide denial of SERIOUS civil rights (slavery in Africa and China, 3rd class citizenship for women in Muslim countries, dictatorships and terrible corruption throughout the developing world) American racial discrimination, while wrong, was not as horrible as the Left today believes.
Americans BEFORE the ‘60s—the WWII and before generation—were a good and godly people, more-so in many ways, than they are today. Blacks, Jews, and other minorities—while treated unfairly by the system—were not cruelly and severely treated—as so many all around the world still are.
Yes, I’m glad for the accomplishments of the civil rights movement, then end of legal segregation was a very good thing—and I greatly desire to live in a color-blind America...but it seems to me the remnants of “the movement” are the biggest barrier to color-blindness left.
I also get very tired of the liberal-orthodoxy that we were a monstrously evil place before the enlightenment of 1960s generation....
But strangely enough, I have found that the only time I personally am “color-blind” is when I'm in a group of believers or interacting with a believer (and it might be a stranger). That might sound strange, but it's true. That's what breaks down all the barriers.... age, color, background, appearance, education...
Secular humanism--the ethic behind what we call liberalism--is most properly regarded as a Christian heresy. It is an attempt at (more or less) Christian ethics, without Christ. The love of Christ alone really breaks down the ethnic/racial/cultural barriers between peoples.
Christianity is "humanistic" in the sense that we have a Human as our head, that is Christ Himself. It is the only real and valid humanism--as it is also simultaneously the real worship of the one accessible, loving-and-righteous, personal God, unlike other forms of theism.
you have put into logical sentences what I was trying to say which makes it make sense! :) thank you
