    “Jeremy shares our vision for the White House as the people’s house, one that celebrates our history and culture in dynamic and inclusive ways,” President Obama said in an e-mail statement. “We look forward to Jeremy continuing to showcase America’s arts and culture to our nation and the world through the many events at the White House.”

    Currently, Mr. Bernard serves as senior adviser to the United States ambassador to France. He previously served as the White House liaison to the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    Thank God he's not a white conservative openly gay person. He'd be pilloried by the left. Just like Black conservatives are.

    Politics?

    It's interesting what passes for politics to USMBers.

    *Note to self: Suggest a 'who gives a crap' forum.*

    I'm kind of worried about anyone who feels the need to 'prove'. We should be seeing beyond gay, straight, black, white.... blah blah blah by now.

    I find it sad.... and a tad condescending. It's like the WH is saying 'Look, we got a token gay person. How cool are we?' It's like assuming blacks like rap and other such prejudices.... if we have to make a point to say we're tolerant... we ain't tolerant.
