I had the privilege of receiving several comments concerning the name change for the White House.
One talked about pigmentation of color, one talked about black people helping build the White House and another how the color white means purity.
Let me address those issues quickly.
First, there are many ways to add pigment to make paint the color you desire. It just didn't come out white; it was designed that way.
Second, the black people who worked on the White House were slaves owned by white racists, not free blacks.
Third, that theory about white symbolizing purity comes from people such as Aldolf Hitler or the white supremacist groups we have here in America that have no problems talking about killing all the Jews and black people in America.
I implore you to check your history instead of distorting it.
