Chairman King wants a communist quote on his communist statue.

Ironic, since that's pretty much what happened to MLK

I just recently went to the see MLK monument for the first time. The monument itself (the stone mountain with a slice out of it, and on the back of the offset slice is MLK, looking out over the water) is pretty cool; the statue of MLK is downright offensive. He looks angry (I'ma shank you angry), and shifty (he's looking off sideways), and like a racist parody by someone who had never seen a black person. I had to pull up a picture on my phone to check - nope, his lips really weren't that big, nor his nose so broad. And the stance, so weird. It made a lot more sense when I found out that the sculptor was a Communist Chinese sculptor - that was it exactly, it looked like a Communist Chinese sculpture. And apparently the sculptor really HADN'T met any black people before. How that sculpture got chosen, I have no idea. It was awful.

Ugh. They just need to scrap the sculpture and start over. Please.

I'm not exactly an "America! fark yeah!" type of person, but I feel it's a disgrace that we had a foreign national sculpt this monument. Could they not find an American sculptor?

Horrible statue, poor job on the quote

let's get someone who has a love for the man
and his real efforts to bring people together
do the job
even if it's a friggin kindergarten class
and they make it out of macaroni

From another story:

The work is expected to cost between $700,000 and $900,000, and will be paid for by a special fund for the memorial foundation.

It turns out he wasn't a drum major after all.

I think he twirled flags though.

Wonderful. How soon until "The Black Gash of Shame" comments commence?

Where I work one of the recently deceased professors was honored with a special gold medallion in his name which has his portrait on it. He's white, but looks Asian on the medallion. And the gold (or is it "gold"?) is flaking off.

Made in China! It's probably 90% lead, 10% melamine.
