We should burn all the books his wrote too, remove his name from all his legitimate achievements including a life that I'm his early years help many blacks in the south.
Let's not stop there though, Woodrow Wilson was well known as being a racist, funny this is the two men were very similar in there view.
We should remove Wilson's statues , portraits and whatever else from view of the public.
An asterisk should be put beside his name on any presidential list denoting he was a racist.
While we are at it, how many leaders who have statues owned slaves? Those should be removed too.
History must be cleansed and rewritten that any racism or dark sides of otherwise notable individuals be what they are known and defined as.
Whatever good they did is trumped by the fact they were racists.
Modern political correctness is epidemic and lack any reasoning whatsoever.

Gov. Eugene Talmadge told people he liked blacks as long as they stayed in their place, and that was at the back door with their hats in their hands. He was reelected until his death and then his son, Herman, took over the office of governor.

I don't recall Wilson, or anyone for that matter, saying
"The man’s hatred of Jews was so intense that he riled up his followers into lynching of Leo Frank, a Jewish businessman. He even praised those that had done the deed in 1915. Thomas E. Watson then praised the lynchers as “bold, true men".
The guy does not deserve a statue anywhere.
The statue was not placed there because of this statement he made or his anti- semitism or racism.
It was placed there in spite of these hateful statements and his flaws.
This man did a whole lotta good for a whole lotta people in Georgia, my father was one of them.
Research the man along with his faults before you judge his life as an abomination.
His statue there is not a statement that racism or anti semitism is okay or good, it's honoring his service to the state and the millions of poor people his work helped. That's all.
People look for these simplistic causes or so called grave injustices brought on by political correctness

If I'm not mistaken wasn't Leo Frank accused of raping a young girl and then tried to blame it on a black janitor? Hmmmmm. Don't know a helluva lot about the Frank RAPE case, but from what I heard there was sufficient evidence to find him guilty. Don't know what caused the people to get riled up and lynch Frank, but raping a little girl doesn't make people happy or all that forgiving either. If you freaks want to tear down statues what about the one of MLK in Washington? Is a drunkard, a woman beater, a plagiarizer, a communist malcontent, a hypocrite, worthy of having a statue in your book? Get lost creepos.

racist = any White who has some self respect, doesn't kow tow to nonwhites, cites crime stats or facts that are truthful. Sometimes you can be a racist just by being White.

anti-Semite or anti-Semitic = any Gentile who exposes Jewish supremacism, Jewish power and influence in the media, politics, academia, Hollywood, Jewish war crimes, or criticizes the apartheid state of Israel.

Dumass - most southerners, you in particular.
Sorry to expose the agenda behind all those lame ZioMarxist constructs that have been used to silence all opposition through intimidation. Nothing but empty words which when ignored or made fun of, have no power whatsoever. Silly, childish, stupid, name-calling with words like "raycisss aka racist" "auntie Semite aka anti-Semite or anti-Semitic" "bigot" "Nazi" "neo-Nazi" "White supremacist" and other little powerless silly little names. bwaaaaaaaaaaa. teehee. Fire away, silly, little, emasculated, anti-White, freakozoid.

The statute to which you hate mongers refer to is a salute to those who made Georgia the place in which you all want to abide. Delta's ready 24/7. Bless your little hearts.

Of all the hatred posted about Georgia on Topix by damned yankees, never heard of one moving and retiring in the north.

For those having comprehension problems, Georgia is planning to block obamacare, and Delta is ready 24/7 for deadbeats to lazy to work. Massachusetts and California opens its arms to welcome deadbeats requiring welfare, obamacare, and other socialist drains on the taxpayers. Georgia has statutes you won't like.

Are you going to admit that you're a crusty 65 year old hippie who hasn't seen a bar of soap since you took that bad acid at Woodstock 69?

Hey freak, the Seventies just called and said they want their gay porn stache back. bwaaaaaaaaaaa.

The Sofa Douche is a senior citizen but he still trys to be hip and cool with some punk twenty-something looooosers who still live in their mom's furnished basement apartment. Fight the power! The man is holding us down! and all that other antiquated bullsheet from the Sixties. bwaaaaaaaaaa. What a douchebag.

Care to comment on why you are so obsessed with lighteredknot? Is it a man crush sort of thing? Lighteredknot is a normal, straight, heterosexual male, so you are barking up the wrong tree. I think you should try some bi-curious dating site out in Cacafornia, after all you supposedly aka allegedly live in the land of fruits, nuts, and flakes. teehee.
