A California high school named after George Washington may remove a mural of the first US president amid complaints from students. RT panelists debated whether the students are role models or ‘virtue signaling’ crybabies.

History is what it is ! Democrats were the parents inventors of the KKK ! And Frankly I think they still practice it today except with all Races ! They blame everyone else for what THEY are ……..

I hate to be one of these conspiracists but whose behind erasing all American history?

It doesn't matter if somebody takes it upon themselves to deem it bad or good….it's history and art….It belongs to me the taxpayer. I don't want that mural destroyed.

Its the truth…it shows what happened…it shows where we started a few hundred years ago and where we are now……..I am not making light of it….we need to teach our children the truth…..Look what happens when we start feeding the good wolf……

The blacks are going to suffer if they go after the white majority culture. These lunatics see racism everywhere. The black woman is not able to put forward one single argument. She does not feel safe.

This is exactly why the new generation of children are a bunch of slowflakes, they’re sheltered from reality. They should keep those things up, it’s a reminder of our history. Even though it’s bad, it shows us all the terrible things that happened in history and not to repeat it. History should not be about purely glorifying America, it should be about learning from the mistakes of the past.

Leftist artist who openly criticised the glorification of the founding fathers creates a piece of art critical of george washington. Idiots presume it glorifies slavery and desecration of native americans, then learn about the same thing in class. Maybe we should burn the books too since they depict the same things.

The black female lawyer says people are still hurt over slavery. White people or just blacks? My black friends are all Christians who forgive and move on…they don't keep pounding on people like me whose ancestors came in 1938. They realize that the culprits…ole massa and family are dead. Many don't even know who their slave ancestors were. Does anyone know that if a Korean commits a sin the Korean people hold it against their children and grandchildren for a few hundred years…is this us? I saw the German relatives of Hitler forgiven by the Jewish people on the Utube.… Read more »

I have the answer. Change the person from George Washington to Mohammed. That way the slavery raping and killing of indigenous people is sacred, holy, and the act of "The Perfect Example of a Human Being". Something to mirror you life to. Think of the beauty and peace that mural would provide everybody.

a rationale look at the mural doesn't traumatize or offend, if you are rationale and reasonable other than the dead Indian lying prone on the ground so again using the words reasonable and rationale purposefully a reasonable compromise would be to paint over the dead Indian. But don't let sensible and reasonable stop you libtards from trying to erase America, good luck, oh…sorry, did I make you cry.?

Maniacs and spoiled narcissists! BTW you idiots…the painter apparently was a Communist and was making a statement about the United States and Washington the fact that he had slaves…it would seem that it's an indictment – EXACTLY what the insane left and their robots are disturbed about today…but they want the work destroyed. How sick is that? I taught at the HS of the Arts in San Fransicko and I couldn't paint over the hideous murals on the walls of the classroom that were painted by inmates of the former MacAteer lock down juvenile facility…they said, "It's art"! The left… Read more »

And I thought Satire was dead, Lionel. Put the Murals in a museum if possible (since they are painted on walls I am not sure how that would be done but I think it could be done). Put all the controversial Art from the past in Museums.

I want to know where the school system in San Francisco came up with $600,000 to paint over the mural when they have homeless people crapping all over their streets and Drug needles everywhere!

The members of the "Reflection and Action Group" need to sue the high school that let them pass U.S. History without an understanding of it.  They have completely misinterpreted what the mural is.   This reminds me of a group of activists who had a civil war cemetery paved over without first finding out who was buried there.   They saw a confederate flag and became enraged and a few weeks later all the headstones with the appropriate information on them were removed and destroyed and the cemetery paved over.   They never bothered to read a single head stone.   My 4th great… Read more »
