General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
It is not an officially sanctioned statue, and the local authority said they had no prior knowledge of it going to be put there, and the sculpture was sculpted by a white man.
The culprits say it is not intended for the statue to be there permanently, and the intention is that it will be put in the same museum as the statue which was chucked in the river, and then fished out ....
Question though, was the black power fist not banned at one time or other ?
I actually think as statues go, it is a good statue, I like it, as regards this whole BLM thing, it has gone over the top, and I don't like history being whitewashed (no pun intended) we were all taught at school about the slave trade and how wrong it was, but it is part of our history, a bad part of our history, but it is our HISTORY
I think ALM doo yoo know what that means
