Anti-Southern activists want to not only eliminate all our statues and flags and other symbols - ultimately they want to eliminate us as a people. Some of them admit this openly, calling for our genocide or demographic displacement by millions of Third World immigrants. In the end the removal of this statue is part of the on-going campaign in the USA against the Southern people as an ethnic/cultural group. It's morally wrong.
do "infrastructure repairs" or improvements, like rerouting MLK to go around the new stadium, count as part of this community benefits plan?
My nigga stay up we out here real nigga sos
Has Ceaser Mitchell recovered from being bamboozled and ashamed and is he now on board with the community benefits agreement? If so, what happened that changed his mind?
"That is the solution for progressive Democrats - don't reproduce."
Sweet job politicizing my non-political statement, guy.
BuckheadBlackBoy is spot on with his accurate and funny post. I live near East Cobb and agree with him 100%
Fahamu Pecou is the shit! This was a great art show. I can't believe it was 8 years ago.
and yet the paganistic, pre-christian wreaths remain on the capitol building.
This hardly rivals the best statue toppling scene: Saddam's in Baghdad a decade or so ago. Of course subsequent events didn't turn out too well there. Maybe Atlanta's dirty little compromises are as good as homo (not very) sapiens can manage?

congrats seem to be in order to joeff davis for starting a successful petition to remove the statue.
So how soon can we expect the Turner Field task force to let a consulting contract that will, out of sheer coincidence, be awarded to someone with ties to one or more council members?
when the guy's self-created wikipedia page is deleted for a failure to "assert the importance or significance of its subject.", that's a sign he's not so much "an internationally renowned painter/scholar with a focus on bridging the gap between the hip-hop and fine art worlds", as he is a somewhat-talented artist with a knack for self-promotion that only certain people fall for.
i never understood the fascination some people had with fahamu pecou.
wait, i thought progressive democrats were all welfare queens? or they are all trying to turn our nation's youth gay?
i can't keep the talking points straight.
a surprise christmas gift for myself. i can't wait to see what it is!
At last! GOOD RIDDANCE! I never thought I'd live to see this day, but Tom Watson's statue has finally left the Georgia capitol.
"Also the question "Why give up having fun in the city for the sake of having a child?", but whatevs."
That is the solution for progressive Democrats - don't reproduce.
"I bet MLK and Crim's marching bands blew your's out of the water, too."
MLK and Crim both looked flashy until they had to play. And play they did - every one as loudly as he/she could, every one in a different key, and only occasionally on the same measure.
