I love the picture of the statue here, symbolizing a brighter tomorrow. I think the controversy is a bit silly- people need to think about important things, not silly stuff like the size of a penis or whether the sculptor is black enough. How can people break free of slavery's remnants if they are filling their minds with only complaints?
I am reading the narrative of Frederick Douglass lately, and I am very inspired. He used education to break the chains of slavery, and I think that's a good lesson for everyone to learn. Even with the token Black History month celebrations, we never got to read this book in high school. I think that's a shame.
