I just read this story in the Greenwood Commonwealth and it's not surprising that you still have racist people in Greenwood and the nation as a whole. I say racist because only somebody white would do something so stupid and ignorant. They stole the Emmett Till marker last weekend and now this. The Robert Johnson marker was on state-owned property and I hope that when the capture - if they capture - whoever is responsible for it, they throw the book at 'em. Here's a great idea: Install a motion camera in the church - which is located a few feet from the sign site - and replace the marker. See what happens then.
