    OK, and what is your point? You approve, makes you mad, you think it's racist and should come down. I mean, nice post, great pic, but what's your stand?

    I'll tell you what I think of it... the opposite of whatever $tinkle writes, that's what.

    So, since Stink didn't copy pasta the rest of the article, there it is. Erected in 30's, been moved, plenty of chances to replace it, never was, doesn't seem to be any outrage in Arlington, plenty of memorials in DC, probably a lot more with this type thing.

    While the fact they were colored is irrelevant now, at the time, it's how they made the memorials. Here's how I see it:

    I'm glad there's a memorial for veterans there and anywhere there is one.
    I think that instead of removing it, look to it as a teaching point that we should not classify people by color, and as a point of reference to future generations that despite the bias against them, peoples of various ethnicity contributed to the wars.

    Retarded politicians are not highlanders. There can be more than one.



    (Also, love equivocating misunderstanding a holiday's significance with failing at every stated responsibility of a president)
