Oh, how exciting!

Hey, kids, where would you rather go on vacation...Disney or and "Underground Railroad historic site?

New York is so f*cking clueless, it's not funny. You watch...we'll dump millions into this sh*tty idea, and bunch of brother-in-laws and buddies will get rich on state contracts.

Kids are not the only one's who go on vacations. Older people might enjoy something like this and history buffs of all ages.

What they really need to do is capture your ignorant communist illegal alien taxpayer-sucking leech arse and catapult back to your beloved homeland of China where they can imprison you for the vile rat that you are.

Since this is obviously not your home country, why should it concern you? If they were building a monument to the history of communism in China I could see your interest. Until then, just keep playing with your Chinese noodle.

"the Underground Railroad used by slaves to escape to freedom"

You mean hired field-hands who ran away from their debts? Some gratitude after the white man spent fortunes saving them from their rival african tribes.

We learn the truth about the african slave trade while in primary school back home.

Asians are generally quite intelligent, so that makes you the exception that proves the rule.
