Dr. M'Bow is very well qualified for the directorship of MOCA. Not only his educational background but also his international experience in the world of art and also his understanding of the people of North Miami. It seems Mrs Braman just wants to use her considerable influence to dictate her own desires and ensure that her incompetent puppet, Mr Gartenfeld, keeps his place as loyal lap dog.
The situation is already more than pathetic and it is sickening to see how the city and the taxpayer (who Mr. Braman usually seems to show such support for) are being treated like second class citizens.
I don't think this fight is about race but rather social class with the Board thinking that the citizens of North Miami do not deserve to have MOCA or it's art collection since they seem incapable of appreciating it and therefore did not agree to the expansion. Also the Bass seems most happy to appropriate the art collection for their "enlightened and entitled" community, who cares about the taxpayers of North Miami, they do not have the money or influence to matter.
Hopefully this situation can be corrected soonest and Mr M'Bow installed to his rightful place. If Mrs Braman thinks so highly of her little Gartenfeld then maybe her husband can get him a job selling cars, I'm sure at least he might be qualified for that.
