    ‘Glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny’

    A Northern California public school district may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School due to concerns that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans.

    I saw this yesterday and wondered if this story would make it to this board.

    In order to be traumatized by a painting a person must be taught and then believe the content of the painting is horrific or immensely insulting. Now who would teach our kids something like that?

    And their pants on the ground.

    Demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans? First, how many 'Native Americans' are actually left? and second, the gansta rap they listen too is more offensive.

    I'm telling you these lunatics are gonna come after people for having the American flag hanging from their homes next. It all starts with this. Just like how Hitler did it.

    This is their plan:

    First they go after the early American heroes and call them racists. Then they go after the writers of our Constitution and call them racists, and if they're racists, then everything they ever did, spoke or wrote is racist which means the Constitution is racist and needs to be voided out. After that, who knows what they'll want next.

    Namby Pamby little Twits, if they're so offended by George Washington, they can start emptying out their pockets and burn every $1 Bill they have or send um to me. Let's see how offended they are, when their little protest empties their wallet, purse or they have to run around with 10 lbs of change in their pockets, because they don't want to be exposed to those awful Dollar Bills.

    MLK is next.

    He was homophobic, worse then John Wayne, and believed people shouldn't be judged by their race, which is the exact opposite of what Democrats believe.

    Exactely. They were taught to have this reaction. The logical conclusion/solution is that America must be "radically transformed", history erased and revised.

    I agree with these students and want to help them avoid being offended. If they give me all their money, (Washington, Lincoln, etc!) I will be offended for them.

    He was a great man with great character flaws.

    He understood that "All Humans are Created Equal" and that Slavery is Evil, yet he upheld Slavery.

    He won the War of Independence, but slaves lost the chance to gain freedom in 1780s or latest in 1833.

    Of course History is History, but all sides must be remembered.

    Did you read the part about people wanting it removed back in the 1960's???Personally I feel it should remain to show the true representation of George Washington not some sanitized version.Interesting it was all painted by a Russian communist??

    These folks should be whining to the loser Indians who didn't fight hard enough to keep their land or the loser Africans that let other Africans sell their ancestors. What is America coming to?

    Is this the mural?

    I can certainly see why it would upset Native American kids.

    Would you be ok if this was painted in a public school?

    Put it in an art museum, it doesn’t belong in a public school.

    Probably not.... At least they aren't proposed changing the name of the school (yet), which has happened to several schools where I live..

    From the URL, they were proposing changing this in the 60's, so nothing new here...

    Much like the thread on the TJ statue at the Long Island college, each year of the school should be able to decide what decorations should represent their school...

    One mural has a killed native American, an other shows slavery.
    Seems obvious that far right snowflakes can't handle these to be removed for obvious reasons.

    Sounds more like white supremacists are whining, and can't seem to win a fight.

    Now now people if we have learned anything from 2009 to 2015 it is that sons and daughters of democrats are very very delicate people and must be protected at all times. Maybe instead of painting over the mural they just give them blue ribbons every time they pass the mural. Oh, an along with a wedge of an orange. An organic orange of course.
