Protesters now demand removal of Central Park statue honoring 'father of modern gynecology' who conducted experiments on enslaved black women in the 1850s
Daily Fail

Just another data point.

In a way, I can see taking this one down more than the ones of General Lee.

A slavery era Doctor Mengele.

I wasn't sure where to put this since it's technically confederate.

This is really, really fucked up.

This sort of thing is why Trump won in 2016 and why he could win in 2020.

There has been a lot of pontification on this. Mr. Lee, apparently, is keeping quiet. However, it has been affirmed that it was ESPN that "initiated" the conversation. After all of the layoffs, and given the seniority of a play caller of a college game for two colleges No One Gives a Shit About, you can see how they "spun" this to a "mutual" decision.

'Racist' Gandhi statue banished from Ghana university campus
Teh Gruniad
A statue of Mahatma Gandhi will be removed from a university campus in Ghana after professors launched a petition claiming the revered Indian independence leader and thinker was racist.

The statue of Gandhi was unveiled in June at the University of Ghana campus in Accra by Pranab Mukherjee, the president of India, as a symbol of close ties between the two countries.

But in September a group of professors started a petition calling for the removal of the statue, saying Gandhi was racist and that the university should put African heroes and heroines “first and foremost”.

...
There's a Gandhi statue in NYC that's been there a while. Union Square, not some obscure venue.

Pretty sure that Cleveland's "Soldiers and Sailors Monument" in Public Square has bas-relief sculptures depicting a couple of vanquished Confederates on the center wall. One of them includes George Armstrong Custer!

There are sculptures on the outside depicting actual warfare. Probably should take the whole damned thing down.

I assume you joke about Custer; brevetted a major general fighting for the Union.

Meanwhile, other statues of actual scum that have to come down:

I didn't think to screengrab it, but I saw one yesterday, Robert Lee's face shopped onto Robert E Lee's body. So you can be not COMPLETELY disappointed.

It was so well done, t3h g00gl3 ignorez it.

As the Streisand Effect continues to roger ESPN--"Look, we are sensitive to people being triggered over Charlottesville, so instead let's watch hours of us slathering a serial woman abuser!"--I suppose Richard Lee may do something with the notoriety. No one knew who he was and this will be the only reason to know him now.

Unless ESPN is only responding to imaginary popular pressure (which is quite possible)-- we can no longer pat ourselves on the back for maturity having elected someone with the middle name "Hussein." We've backslid.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Lucky for you, I remembered what FB group I saw it in ("The Discussion Group" which reminds me a lot of this place. Seriously I think people from here would be quite at home there. The admin changes the name frequently for various reasons though, so if you can't find it, he must have done so again), and it isn't a heavily trafficked group so I was able to find it again.

Now these might have been made by the people who posted them, thus not on google. I don't know

P.S. Just another FAIL for the network that tried to foster Jessica Mendoza as a baseball expert, elevate Bruce "Get Out of My Road" Jenner as "brave" over Pete Frates, and whose various "reporters" go into six months to years of hiding every time their conspiracy theories get debunked.
