SJWs Outraged That Curator Of African Art Is White

"I feel like I’m in a scene from 'Black Panther'"

If a black man had been elected by a museum as curator for their Medieval European art collection, it would be entirely racist and evil if people said a white person should have the position.

However, according to the Left, if a museum elects a white male and white woman as curators for a museum's African art collection, only black people should be admitted to the position, because somehow that's not racist.

According to the Huffington Post, the Brooklyn Museum announced on Monday that it had appointed two white curators to head their African art collections: Drew Sawyer for photography, and Kristen Windmuller-Luna. SJWs have been going crazy on Twitter, derogatorily referring to the two individuals as "cultural colonizers."

Strangely enough, some people say the whole scenario reminds them of the scene in "Black Panther," when the villain Erik Killmonger looks upon an African artifact at a museum and accuses a white female curator of stealing it from Africa. In the movie, Killmonger goes on to murder the white woman and then steals the artifact — a revanchist attitude that the movie condemns.

When announcing Windmuller-Luna’s hire, the Brooklyn Museum said she was selected because of her expertise in African art. In fact, biographies of her published by universities and museums say she received her "Ph.D. in African Art History from Princeton University, worked as an African Arts research specialist at Princeton’s art museum, and is a lecturer at Columbia University."

“Kristen is the perfect choice to build upon the Brooklyn Museum’s track record as an innovator in the collection and exhibition of the arts of Africa,” Jennifer Chi, the museum’s chief curator, said in the release, adding that she has a “vision for a new permanent collection installation that transforms how viewers relate to the arts of Africa” for the museum’s exhibit of African art in 1923.
