As leftist agitators have set their sights on the Washington, DC, Emancipation Memorial depicting President Abraham Lincoln and a freed black man, a group of black historians are calling for it to remain in the city park where it was placed in 1876.

Despite threats to tear it down, some are noting fundraising began for the memorial when Charlotte Scott “used the first $5 she earned in freedom to kick off a fundraising campaign as a way of paying homage to Lincoln after he was assassinated in 1865,” WJLA reported.

"He is in the act of getting up. And his head is up, not bowed, because he's looking forward to a future of freedom."

Some want D.C.'s Lincoln statue gone. Others point out: Freed Black Americans paid for it.

Tooobad.  The white leftists, who are really calling the shots, want to rip it down.  Nobody cares what a bunch of Collards want.  The Dems considered them slaves since before they were called "Democrats," and to them, they are slaves still.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.
