MLK day in Columbia, SC. George Washington boxed in by NAACP.


MLK Day in Columbia,, S.C. 2011
The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting
twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse.
Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington.
This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the Father of His Country
from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.

They shielded George Washington from public view.
Are our traditions now fully askew?
Would MLK say:
Put this father away?
Our nation must give him his honor anew.

      Just one question? Do you mean the people in the picture are sick, or the people that report on it?
