San Francisco to remove 19th century statue some call racist

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco board has voted unanimously to remove a 19th century statue that activists say is racist and demeaning to indigenous people.

The unanimous decision Wednesday night by the San Francisco Board of Appeals involves the “Early Days” statue, which depicts a Native American at the feet of a Spanish cowboy and a Catholic missionary. It is part of a group of statues near City Hall that depict the founding of California.

San Francisco’s Arts Commission spokeswoman Kate Patterson said the statue will be removed as soon as possible but wouldn’t give an exact date, citing security concerns.

Native American activists have tried to have the statue removed for decades. They renewed efforts last year after clashes broke out over Confederate monuments.

“This has been a tough 30-plus years. But this is wonderful,” Dee Dee Ybarra, an Ohlone tribal leader who urged the commissioners to remove the statue, told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Earlier this year, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to end the Columbus Day holiday and celebrate indigenous people and Italian Americans on the second Monday of October.

Board members said Native people suffered greatly after explorer Christopher Columbus arrived.

1. So.. the Left wants to remove a statue that depicts the groups seen as having been most active...

..in destroying native American life actively doing that very thing?! What NEXT, pull down statues of the Reverend Martin Luther King because he famously said he wanted people not to be judged by the color of their skin? Because the Left today is ALL about judging people with white skin, so they may be identified by their color and forced to suffer financially and socially for their poor choice of ancestry!...
