Rebel Pundit decided to follow a local activist to see what the Southside Chicago residents think about moving a statue of George Washington…Surprisingly, they want to keep the statue where it is even though Washington was a slave owner. The video below is an interesting take on what some in the black community feel about the statue hoax.

Bishop James Dukes wants the parks in Chicago’s south side to be renamed for famous black leaders…The opposition is coming from blacks who know the whole statue outrage is a hoax.

Local activist Paul McKinley: “While they’re taking about changing the name, our community needs jobs, contracts, and opportunity. This is a way to stop talking about black folks not working. Black folks get no contracts. Our schools are being closed down. Our houses are being boarded up. But you want to talk about a statue.”

He’s so right!
