I am now picturing a group of school children surrounding the Missy statue, and the teacher is trying to explain her role in American history....

Why not NO STATUES? That way nobody will be offended or whatever the claim is... Think of the kids... Instead of statues why not have kiosks of famous people on 'selfie sticks' taking pics of the Self-absorbed; the aforementioned famous person(s) and what once was the statue/monument. That would work until a self-absorbed liked the stick so much they swiped it.

I must confess I've never come across a statue that made Me remember it??? I'm much more concerned about the 'statute' that allows folks to whine about it.

What's sane about it ?

Pretty much ANYONE can get a statue made.

All it takes is some cash.,

She's a one percenter.

So it's not a problem.

Let's put up a statue of Hitler wearing a confederate flag for a cape and a native headdress. then have him beating Jesus with a burning kuran.

We could offend everyone that we.
Equal opportunity offender

Is it weird that I hope this happens?

Purely for comedic value.

That would have to be on my bucket list.
Especially if the statue is on a platform being carried by topless women.

Only read the title, and gagged.



Me too! I would prefer Rosie O'Donnell.

Can we spare the resources to make that?


Probably not. The Mexican wall would have to be three miles shorter. Not acceptable.

Missy Elliot is awesome but no. Public parks should be neutral and music is subjective.

Got a big statue, let me research it.
Put that thing down, flip it, and reverse it.

Exactly, people having over reactions should not be taken seriously.

The Mexican Wall??? How long do You think that would last? Perhaps everyone is channeling Shiva and We are in "Destruction Mode"?

Be nice if they would find someone with some sort of academic or humanitarian type of achievement to nominate.

I'm sure the main criteria is that it is a black person, there has to be plenty of black people from that area(throughout history) that has made an actual substantial contribution to the world.

Lets put those statues up.

Personally, I don't idolize anyone, though there are some truly great minds that are hard to ignore.

However, a petty "entertainer" certainly can't be the best these people can come up with. Unless they are dimmer than I could have ever imagined.

Granted I may be wrong, maybe someone will post some unknown fact about her concerning the curing of a disease, pioneering some life altering process or technology, or saving the lives of hundreds(or thousands of people). Doubt it though.

Either way, not too shocked. Par for the course. Tear down history and idolize trivial pop culture fools, this is why aliens will never come here. At least not in the context to coexistent. If they do come, they will see the human race as well beneath them and not worthy of the energy it would take to fire a death ray at the planet.

Why can't parks tell the story of a town/city/state?

This is my home town, met her once or twice through mutual friends. Can't say that I'm surprised at this though. That statue was originally in downtown Portsmouth and the biggest ghetto area in the city. Not to sound derogatory but that half of the city was the broken and most run down area. You could visibly see the "other side of the tracks".

It's also a big military town.

Either way there's enough entrenched old white people there that it won't happen. My god fearin' born agin' parents included. I just think it's a stupid petition.
