A POLL: WHAT COLOUR(S) SHOULD THE WHITE HOUSE BE PAINTED TO BE REPRESENTATIVE OF ALL AMERICANS?

Voting has Ended

Americans seem to want to display only the parts of its history that it can be proud of, and hide that for which it is ashamed.  Now that statues are being torn down all over the USA, and a State is even considering changing its name, it's time for the "White" House to become seen and known around the world not as representative of only a portion of the American population but to include the many races in the melting pot of the country.  At one time the "White" House was at least partially black, when the Brits and Canadians burned it down in 1812, so there is some historical justification for a change to a historical truth.  What would be YOUR choice to truly display the "White" House as being representative of all the people in America?

White is the convergence of all three primary colors Red, Blue, and Green from which all colors are derived.

How much more appropriate can you get than that?

Oh, come on, CK.  Did you really have to post an intelligent scientific fact that screws up the poll?

It seems a silly question to me...but since you asked.

I say just leave it the way it is but turn it into a historic tourist destination and build our next President a more appropriate modern executive mansion with a new name. Something like The Presidential Residence...

Has it not been the residence of some of the persons who are presently being criticized, and if their monuments are being torn down, maybe this ediface, which is considered an important symbol of the USA, should be as well - actual history is being hidden these days in favour of "acceptable" history, is it not?

I just realized, having been a big fan of the West Wing series with Martin Sheen, the White House is a lot more than a residence for the POTUS.  As it is, tourists do go through it.  I was once on a tour of the White House, myself.

White is the absence of all color, leave it white.

Absence of all colour would be transparency.  How about taking down all exterior walls and replacing them with glass.  LOL.

Now the image of “baby T” waddling around in his diaper, through the glass, is not easily forgotten.

Perhaps you are unaware that I am unable to open youtube, so I would appreciate the courtesy of your explanation of what it is, since this is my article to moderate.

I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah ~ The Rolling Stones

Good choice, relevant too...Of course the trim can be painted any color
