(AP)The White House and President Joe Biden celebrated 2022 Pride Month which kicks off in June and honors the LGBTQI+ community today by lighting up the White House in rainbow LGBTQI+ colors. The social media discussions are intense, to say the least.

In a Facebook post from our news partners KATC, many in the Acadiana community are wondering why the White House wasn't showing its red, white and blue colors yesterday for Memorial Day.
