Panel Rules New Abe Lincoln Statue Would “Widen Racial Inequality”

Remember when Democrat (and NeverTrumper) politicians and news media derided President Trump for saying that the moonbats would come after Lincoln, Washington, Jesus, and so many other statues, memorials, art, and so forth? Then the BLM/Antifa/Progressive nuts came after them immediately?

D.C. Racial Equity Office Rules Lincoln Emancipation Statue Will Widen Racial Inequity

A government office launched recently to eliminate racial disparities and achieve racial equity in Washington D.C. has determined that installing an Abraham Lincoln Spirit of Freedom Emancipation Statue at the African American Civil War Museum will widen racial inequity even though the council unanimously voted for it and the mayor supports it. In fact, Mayor Muriel Bowser urged the D.C. Council to pass the resolution, known as PR 24-0238, approving the statue’s installation on the public space adjacent to the museum in the historic Archibald Grimke School at 1925 Vermont Avenue, NW. (snip)

Nevertheless, a special D.C. panel created to tackle racism, the Council Office of Racial Equity (CORE), has nixed the idea, writing in a report that “Lincoln’s legacy has long been debated” and the statue will not increase representation of communities of color. The five-page document, officially called Racial Equity Impact Assessment (REIA), delves deeply into the supposed lack of diversity among statues and commemorative works in D.C. and offers a simple conclusion involving the new Lincoln fixture: “Although the overall impact on residents’ lives will be minimal, PR24-0238 would contribute to widening the racial inequity between the number of commemorative works dedicated to white men and those dedicated to Black persons and other persons of color in the District of Columbia.”

The CORE report seems to scold D.C. officials, stating that “commemorative works should be intentional about who is being honored, why they are being honored, and how that representation will inspire future generations.” Under the large, bold heading of “RACIAL EQUITY CONSIDERATIONS” the race council writes that there are at least four statues and commemorative works honoring President Lincoln’s legacy, “which has long been debated,” throughout D.C. It singles out the Emancipation Memorial for being funded by “formerly enslaved men and women” who had no say in the matter. “There is a severe lack of diversity amongst statues and commemorative works in the District of Columbia,” the CORE racial equity assessment states. “In 2019, of at least 115 statues in DC, just six were of American women and only one was of a Black woman, that being Mary McLeod Bethune. Duke Ellington was the only Black native Washingtonian with a statue dedicated in his honor.” Erecting yet another statue of Lincoln underscores the need to close the existing gap, the panel writes.

Perhaps CORE should stop whining about statues and such and consider how segregated Democratic Party run D.C. actually is, and that blacks are very much relegated to the slums and crime ridden areas of the city. It’s the usual for a Dem run city. Anyhow, what statues do they recommend erecting in place of Lincoln’s?

      Are you saying blacks are too stupid to know how to move? Racist!

      “Imperfect as american cities are rural people keep leaving and moving to cities”

      More of your false information from commie websites, no doubt. “Rural people” as you so condescendingly call them ARE NOT moving to cities. They are in some cases moving to suburbs where they are joining all the millions of shitty-city dwellers escaping the filth, crime and one party rule of our blue fascist cities. Just in case you miss THE RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC JAMS leaving the cities to get home to the burbs you brainwashed fool.

      “Imperfect as the Dems are people keep choosing that party over a racist republican party”

      YOU belong to the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, segregation, poll taxes and so many more crimes against humanity yet LIE and call the Party of Abolition and Lincoln “racist”? You commies have no integrity whatsoever. Nor brains. BTW, dems have to cheat to win. You are all crooks and liars. You should be exiled.

      Why do you all hate America?

    It’s true: “Lincoln’s legacy has long been debated.”

    Though Mr Lincoln was clearly opposed to slavery, opposed long before he was elected President, as a man who grew up in the first half of the 19th century, he believed, as almost all white Americans of the time believed, that blacks were simply not the equals of whites, and even if free, should hold no offices of authority over whites.

    But in the first quarter if the 21st century, the #woke¹ are judging all things by 21st century standards, so even President Lincoln is going to be found wanting.

    ¹ – From Wikipedia:

    Woke (/ˈwoʊk/) as a political term of African-American origin refers to a perceived awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice. It is derived from the African-American Vernacular English expression “stay woke“, whose grammatical aspect refers to a continuing awareness of these issues.
    By the late 2010s, woke had been adopted as a more generic slang term broadly associated with left-wing politics and cultural issues (with the terms woke culture and woke politics also being used). It has been the subject of memes and ironic usage. Its widespread use since 2014 is a result of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    I shall confess to sometimes “ironic usage” of the term. To put it bluntly, I think that the ‘woke’ are just boneheadedly stupid.

    Erect one for this hero of the left.

    “The n*gger is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”
    — Che Guevara

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    • Kye says:

      That has always been my favorite Che Guevara quote. I use it to drive the slave masters in the Dem party nuts. Just pointing out who was the party of slavery isn’t enough, gotta show it still continues in the dems modern ghettos.

    • Dana says:

      I’m sure that Señor Guevara and the rest of the Cuban Communists saw themselves as white; “brown” is a 21st century notion, designed to separate the noble Hispanics and Middle Eastern Caucasians from the horribly raaaaacist oppressors of European descent.

    • Dana says:

      Señor Guevara was an evil man and a murderer, but his native language was Spanish. I’d like to see the quote in Spanish, and do the translation myself.

    Try listening to Lincoln’s speeches. They sound just like white supremacist of this century. Lincoln did not like the institution of slavery, he had zero morals so his dislike came from inequality is the work force as it affected whites. Till the day he died his plan for the black man was a one way ticket to any place but the US.

  5. Kye says:

    Lincoln was a White supremacist because he was White. Would you expect any sane White person to be for the supremacy of any other race? That’ like an American being for the CCP. It’s self degrading. Which explains why the Three Blind Mice are both America and White haters. They hate their own race and country. Why is that?

    • david7134 says:

      We know a woman who is a real bitch. Recently she got the hate white spirit, she is white. As a result, she showed up at her maids house with her children in tow. She apologized for her skin color and any real or perceived harsh treatment toward the maid and had her children play with the black children. Of course this was all on social media. After her atonement, she went back to her big house, big car and her life as a shrew. I am ok with her wealth and if she desire conspicuous display, that is her business. But this guilt I can’t deal with.

    Senor Guevara sounds like a conservative. He hated black people, supported torture, believed in capital punishment for traitors.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      No, he was a typical leftist like Rimjob, dipshit that he is, hypocritical and dishonest.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    • Kye says:

      Che Guevara is your typical leftist. He hated black people but at least he didn’t enslave them in plantations and when that became illegal thanks to Republicans re-enslave them in ghettos to harvest their unborn babies and their votes. It takes a lot of hate to murder 300,000 black babies a year. A lot.

      Che, like ALL leftists supported torture. The modern demofascist favors incarceration without trial or bail for protesting causing financial torture to the wives and children of their victims. They keep political prisoners in solitary like serial murderers and refuse them visits, bail and lawyers. They torture the minds of White children by falsely teaching them they are the oppressors of all other races and don’t deserve anything they have because they’re White. They torture blacks by keeping them in ghettos and killing their ability to think and grow as a people. They act as if they still own black people.

      Last year alone at least 500 people were executed by China for treason. Several hundred more in Cuba, N. Korea and other leftist states. None were executed here (yet, that’s coming) or in any other Free Republic. However, execution is a usual punishment for treason in ALL societies. Even George Washington executed traitors but then he was a White, Christian conservative.

      These Free Republics were all created by White, Christian men. What assholes today would call conservatives.

      BTW, the 1980’s called and want their terminology back. There are no more “conservatives” they were absorbed into the demofascist party when they repudiated Trump showing they were no more conservative than Che Guevara.

      Why do leftists hate so many people and lie so much about others?
