Re: “Make history

Peter Eichenberg is the only one with the right impulse. The sculpture does not have to be destroyed to be moved. Destroying artworks is Taliban-esque and wrong. But then again, most of those Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler sculptures certainly got moved and many destroyed didn't they? Nobody saw it as "erasing history". Mr. Hart, and other editors sound like apologists but not like realistic folks with regard to this icon. It is not "erasing history" to move it. Not philistine. Au contraire. It is acknowledging history. Many artworks get moved and removed and stored for various reasons. Some less understandably than others. The Wilmington Article was fine. The Commission was very good. But be aware that money was made on the debate surrounding race issues by Josephus's newspaper too. Are you milking it? Is "race" a business for newspapers? The best acknowledgment of the wrongs of the past would be to put up five more sculptures of other more respectable leaders. AND move it to N$O property as Peter suggested. Let them decide how to appropriately display it. Then stop writing racy conflict stories that divide your community in a never-ending sad string of events. Start writing about Africa where millions are perishing. Start writing about the similarites between people. Try to erase difference, not create it.
