There could not be a better person to honor in DC than Dr. King. He was a great man and this nation is better for having him. So when I heard about the monument, I thought it was a really great thing, until I saw it…… Before reading anything about the sculpture, I thought it looked “funny”. It reminded me of the monuments we were used to seeing all over the Communist nations, extolling the great leaders of their communist/socialistic/Marxist countries. Then I read on, and it all made perfect sense. This thing was carved by an “artist” in Communist China and it does resemble Mao and whats with the Asian eyes? . If I was an African-American, I would be so insulted by this monument, I would force its removal and call for a “re-do”, having a new monument carved by a someone who for one, is not communist, and two, will not embellish the image of Dr. King to look other than what he was, a noble and brave man. Why couldn’t or didn’t they contract this out to African-American artists? I am offended by this monument being made by the communist Chinese. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the man and I feel that he was one of the few true hero’s America has ever produced. He was a great man whose memory and accomplishments deserve much, much better than this. Click here for more pics.
