The following article, College Students Demand Removal of George Washington Statue Citing ‘White Supremacy’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
He led America through the Revolutionary War, refused to be named king, and is one of the most recognized human beings to have ever lived. But his day has come.
George Washington may soon be canceled by students at the University of…Washington.
When will these morons wake up to realize that our history is not perfect, but it is ours and it can’t just disappear!?
Students at the University of Washington (UW) are demanding that the school remove a statue of George Washington, claiming that its existence “perpetuates white supremacy.” Washington, the first U.S. president, is the namesake of both the university and the state it is located in.
A petition started by the University of Washington Black Student Union titled, “Demand for the University of Washington Administration to Meet the Needs of Black Students,” demands that the university “remove statues of racist figures,” and specifically calls out George Washington.
“Statues in place at the University of Washington are preservers of our dark past,” the petition reads. “The George Washington statue, in particular, symbolizes a man who owned over 300 black slaves and profited from their labor.”
If this far-left Senator gets her wish and all statues of America’s first president are torn down, where does it end? Will the Evergreen State and District of Columbia be renamed?
Should Mount Vernon be razed?
Lefties, man. SMH.
