The Official Portrait of the Obamas is Anything Like The Obamas

The official portraits for former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were unveiled last 12 February at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., and most people tend to agree that those doesn't look like the Obamas at all.

Standing onstage at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., the couple watched as their official portraits were unveiled. And the Twitter was flooded by millions of critics saying that those paintings were not done by any professionals at all, but were chose because well ... they were black.

Michelle Obama's portrait, painted by Amy Sherald, depicts the former first lady in a white dress with geometric patterns, set in front of a pale blue background. But it doesn't look like her at all.

Barack Obama's portrait, painted by Kehinde Wiley, showed the president wearing a suit (but no tie) and seated in a chair with a backdrop of leaves and flowers.

One critic said that to put the President in a bunch of poison ivy looking leaves is disgraceful. In short, these paintings are horrible.

Compared to the other Presidential portraits, the latest work pales in comparison when it comes to class.

The Only Fashion Show That Makes Sense In NYFW

Ralph Lauren
No drama, no political statements and definitely no grotesque, obese, unhealthy and disfigured models. That is how Ralph Lauren showed everyone when he took them to the tropics for his Spring/Summer 2018 show.

The iconic American designer's latest collection is inspired by his home in Montego Bay, Jamaica. From the tranquil color palette to the airy fabrics, Lauren didn't fail in showing the magic of Montego Bay.

"Everyone wishes for a magical place where they can step out of time into the beauty of nature. For Spring 2018, I wanted to share the mood, the light, the blue and white freshness of my retreat in Jamaica," Lauren said of his collection. "My collections for women and men conjure up the carefree, sophisticated style of this special experience -- exuberant, luxurious, timeless!"

More importantly, it featured the really beautiful models and popular stars in the audience.

Who Is The Most Beautiful Winter Olympian Today?

Russian Beauty
It won't be hard to figure out by this time. As expected, it came from a European country and as usual a white female because it is obvious ... they are really beautiful.

Russian eye-catcher and figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva is the favorite to win gold in PyeongChang and almost all male viewers are watching her.

Her legion of fans even followed her around when she twists during practice at Gangneung Ice Arena ahead of the team event of the women’s figure skating.

Good thing she is Russian because everyone there are not concerned about this whole #MeToo embarrassment. They also don't have SJW snowflakes there, only the literal snowflakes.

South Korea Doesn't Want Muslim Prayer Rooms

After the start of the games, it became more obvious that PyeongChang has gone out of its way to welcome the world for the 2018 Winter Olympics. But not everyone in the South Korean host city is feeling the Olympic spirit.

The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) has announced that it will no longer go forward with plans to set up a mobile multi-faith prayer room for spectators in Gangneung, where all of the Games’ indoor events are taking place, following "strong opposition" from anti-Muslim protestors, according to Al Jazeera’s Haeyoon Kim and Faras Ghani.

The KTO’s Kim Yeong-ju told Korea Exposé’s Ho Kyeong Jang that opposition to the prayer rooms was so strong that local officials "could no longer do their jobs."

Much of the hostility has flowed from the PyeongChang Olympics Gangwon Citizens’ Islam Countermeasure Association, a very popular new group that pushed a petition against the prayer room via Google. The petition — which stoked a justified fear about radical Islam in the South Korean province of Gangwon — has collected more than 56,000 digital signatures.

"The government has already spent too much of the taxpayers’ money on the Games, and we shouldn’t spend more building a prayer room," Seo Ji-hyun, the director of operations at the Islam Countermeasure Association, told Al Jazeera.

Even Sammy Sosa Doesn't Want To Be Black

Sammy Sosa
A few days ago, baseball legend Sammy Sosa set Twitter abuzz when new pictures of him surfaced sporting a lighter skin tone.

Barstool Sports podcast host Dan Katz was a fan of "cowboy Sammy."

"The craziest part about the Cowboy Sammy picture is that I just assumed it was an old picture because the 'weird Sammy Sosa picture' catalogue has gotten so big nothing new shocks me," he tweeted.

Born in the Dominican Republic, Sosa had darker skin when he first garnered fame in the MLB, hitting 609 homeruns in his career.

In 2009, Sosa addressed his complexion, saying he used skin bleaching cream.

"It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin tone," Sosa told Univision’s Primer Impacto show. "It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I'm not a racist, I live my life happily."

And that is how Sosa wants to live his life ... as a non-black person.
