    U.K. city removes statue of Black Lives Matter protester that replaced monument to slave trader



    July 16, 2020 / 6:02 AM / CBS News

    London — "The sculpture of a Black Lives Matter protester that appeared on a plinth formerly occupied by a statue of a slave trader, which was torn down and thrown into a river last month in Bristol, England, was removed Thursday by the city. The city of Bristol has not yet officially decided what to do with the plinth on which a statue of Edward Colston previously stood.

    In a statement on Wednesday, Bristol's mayor, Marvin Rees, said that the replacement statue of a female protester with her fist raised to the sky, which appeared early that morning, had been put up without permission.

    "We have established a history commission which will help us tell our full city history," Rees said in a statement. "As we learn this fuller history including the part played by black people, women, the working class, trade unions, and children among others, we will be in a better position to understand who we are, how we got here and who we wish to honor..."

    The (darkly-complexioned) Mayor of Bristol says they will remove a statue put up by its maker for publicity so that the people can choose what is put up. Big deal!

    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    Sorry, you racist right wing rube, I don't goosestep, and I don't worship the dear leader like you.

    Don't you have a few QAnon pages to read before you take the pledge?

    Baltimore City Jail employees -lovely. Baltimore is 100% corrupt -including the jail.
    ~~
    The Baltimore jail that was run by a gang
    http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/s...jail-gang.html
    The Baltimore City Detention Center is old. It was in business before Abraham Lincoln was president. Ghosts are everywhere – in the concertina wire lacing the sky, the ancient stone façade, the trash swirling on the sidewalk, and the white door with a small barred window set hard on the street. It was once said that inmates who walked up the steps and through that jail door exited on a gurney.

    The jail was also, until recently, run by a gang.

    “Everything is drugs. The gangs were just, basically, the face of the drug dealers," said Ralph Johnson, who was a corrections officer at BCDC for 18 years and a supervisor for most of that time. "…Nobody cared. You're going to an environment where people are trying to survive. People are trying to make money. People are just trying to stay out the way.”

    Allow me to correct your post, Katzguts.

    The far left loons who are rioting, looting, burning, assaulting, and murdering in Democrat controlled cities have gone insane.

    Yes, much better.

    your admission that white nationalists are posing as leftists is correct

    Well, no, Katzguts.

    Conservatives don’t stockpile baseball bats in Democrat controlled cities.

    Do you understand now?
