Petition To Remove African American Memorial In Columbia Closing In On 50,000 Signatures

Via Bob

 
An on line petition at change.org calls for the removal on the African American memorial on the South Carolina Statehouse Lawn. 

Stating the reason for removal is that it is offensive to a greater number of South Carolinians than not. That the African American Monument depicts slave ships, mistreatment and words such as "segregation" and "Jim Crow" and that this invokes in the white community feelings of shame, humiliation and offense, (ha!) serving as a constant reminder of the dark history of slavery.

Not surprisingly the main stream media doesn't see the current 35,000 signatures as news worthy.
