From the article:

Wisconsin Black Student Union President Nalah McWhorter said the BSU wants the complete removal of the Abraham Lincoln statue. The BSU has put forward demands for removal, declaring the statue anti-Black and anti-Native.​
“I just think he did, you know, some good things … the bad things that he’s done definitely outweighs them,” McWhorter said. “And I do want the 100% removal of the statue. I don’t want it to be moved somewhere or anything like that. I want it removed.”​

These people are ignorant, arrogant, and committed. Hope those of us who value history are as well. This is very upsetting and frustrating.

That we have arrived here as a society is maddening…but not surprising.

“There’s a lack of urgency,” McWhorter said. “And I don’t think they really understand. These are the types of things that need to get moving. Black people are dying today in the streets every day by police officers. And for a university that already has a history of problems with their Black students, it just doesn’t feel like they care.”

This above statement proves that some people have absolutely no clue what they are talking about. Using a false narrative of today as to why a statue of a man who died 156 years ago should be removed, completely negates their argument. Go back to the drawing board. Better luck next time.
