Is there some reason why any American city should celebrate “African Culture”? With a 25-foot-high statue, no less.
This monstrosity now occupies Rockefeller Center. It is said the artist used his own face as a model. Don’t worry; he doesn’t really look like that.
What does that sculpture even mean? Why is it there? Just how “African” are African-Americans?
Well, all right, Italian-Americans and Irish-Americans are not exactly bashful about celebrating the Old Country–although their ancestors didn’t choose to stay there, did they? So if African-Americans want to “celebrate,” they have a right to it.
But it’s not clear to me, from the nooze story (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/05/25-foot-statue-just-unveiled-nyc-rockefeller-center-honor-african-culture/), how this artistic disaster was paid for, or by whom. If it was public money, tax money, the people of New York have been ripped off again.
Question! When are Far Left crazies going to tear down this statue?
Quote, from Cato the Elder: “I would rather people asked why I don’t have a statue, than why I do.”
