There’s been a more than reasonable amount of rather strident commentary about Lizzo aka Melissa Viviane Jefferson being allowed to play James Madison’s crystal flute. None of it makes much sense to me beyond people just using it to rather pointlessly signal their patriotism to either America or her domestic enemies.
Because please! Someone tell me how a Negress getting her mouth on a White slaveowner’s instrument in order to better her situation is anything novel, anything for the Dems and their Blacks to crow about, or for the average American to rant over? I’ll wait. 😉
Oh, and by the way – or by the by-blow as the case may be – Lizzo’s a Jefferson, which might just mean something given his preferences. So, since Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were close friends, there’s even less cause for commentary.
