Here's what happened when Baltimore removed the Robert E Lee statue.

Some people replaced it with a different (more contemporary) statue.

According to the story, it got knocked down too (or rained on).

WTF is going on ?


Local TV report


Robert E. Lee Statue Replaced With Statue of Pregnant Black Woman

Artist Pablo Machioli and a few of his friends erected a papier-mache statue of a pregnant black woman holding her fist into the air, to stand in front of the Lee and Jackson statue. The statue is adorned with a rainbow sash, a baby on her back, and her raised fist is coated in gold glitter.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the statue is called “Madre Luz,” or “Mother Light” in Spanish.

Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh reportedly said she has "no position" on the "lady liberty of black power" statue being put up.

While the Robert E. Lee statue could have stayed up for centuries due to its fine craftsmanship, the "lady liberty of black power" was destroyed overnight either due to rain or being tipped over.

I heard that is only half of the monument. Margaret Sanger's statue isn't finished yet!

Well it is kind of fitting.
First they remove what is considered a symbol of black oppression. General lee.
Then it's replaced by a new symbol of black oppression. Unwed mother.

I knew the movie Idiocracy was true, I just didn't think it would manifest so quickly, and while there were so many of us with brains left.

It is a modern artist rendering in the print of abstract and modern art, I don't like it. They could have made a beautiful piece, but chose to be divisive.

Depends on somebody's definition of "value".
