George Washington High School to Erase ‘Offensive’ George Washington Mural
George Washington High School in San Francisco, California, plans to remove an “offensive” mural of George Washington. At a school board meeting this week, no board members spoke in defense of the historical art, which one speaker claims causes “visual offense.”
According to a local news report, George Washington High School in San Francisco plans to erase a 13-panel mural from 1936 that depicts George Washington. Many critics of the mural have condemned its depictions of slaves and Native Americans. Now, the school is on the verge of removing the mural altogether.
“Why do we have to explain the pain caused by visual offense that we see in that building that is supposed to be an institution of learning,” one local said.
