More Stone Mountain Controversy

Stone Mountain

In light of the decision by park officials to not remove the Battle Flag from the Stone Mountain Memorial, U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson has asked if we should blast the images that are carved into the mountain. Even though it is a Heritage site, he said “… it is a public park that all of us go to, and I guess we have to all keep it in perspective.”

NAACP’s Atlanta branch President Richard Rose wants the offensive (to him) himage gone as well, saying “They can be sand-blasted off, or somebody could carefully remove a slab of that and auction it off to the highest bidder.”

Maybe Rose could be auctioned off to the highest bidder instead….outside of the US.
