Do you think there should be a statue of a

White Supremacist

in front of the Georgia State Capitol?

 

The Thomas E. Watson statue in front of the Georgia Capitol celebrates a white supremacist who compared African-Americans to apes, praised the lynching of a Jewish man, and was prosecuted for sending anti-Catholic-literature through the mail. He believed that black people should be denied the right to vote, that lynching should be legal and that Catholics were traitors.

So why does Watson’s statue still stand in front of the Capitol’s main entrance with a plaque that calls him “a champion of right who never faltered in the cause”?

Take the Statue Down

We want to live in a state that does not have a statue celebrating a white supremacist in front of our capitol. The only way this statue, which has stood for over 80 years will be taken down, is if the people who represent us hear our voices.
