The bronze-clad structure on Constitution Avenue, its ugliness capturing the soullessness of 21st century America and with all the charm of a mud hut, represents only about a third of the museum's total space. After entering the central court, visitors will be encouraged to take an elevator 40 feet underground, where the journey begins with the black slave trade.
Having turned white guilt into the national religion, it's a place White liberals can actual have contact with real black people while simultaneously being told they are the problem.
The $540 million project was funded to the tune of $270 million by our spend thrift Congress, the other half is being raised through private contributions. Gustafson, Guthrie and Nichol are the landscape architecture firm, and Ralph Appelbaum Associates is the exhibit designer.

President Obama is expected to cut the ribbon and sure to have a lot of slobbering exuberance to rub in America's face. You will definitely see a number of White politicians from across the political spectrum, making high profile visits as a way to prove their racial bona fides.
