Black music was once a respected and celebrated genre unto itself. Singers, writers, and performers were revered and their contributions to the craft were held in high esteem until technology and laziness devolved a once great art form into the simplistic trash it is today.
“Art” has also been devolving over the decades and the latest presidential portrait is more proof, this time at the expense of Barack and Michelle Obama.

Barack Obama, during the unveiling of his presidential portrait, said he hoped his painting would be “bringing it down just a touch” from the traditional portraits of the past.
It sure did bring things down just a touch, like most things as a result of his presidency. Michelle Obama’s portrait was equally cringe-worthy.
To date, Michelle Obama has made no mention of the portrait on her Twitter feed.
