The BBC ran a short program on the fall of the statue of the slaver Colston. Really interesting.
One has to ask why we ever put up statues of these obnoxious people who were involved in making fortunes out of slavery, people who are racist, people who made money out of other peoples’ misery, people who were warmongers?
Surely there are better people to put on plinths???
12 minutes. Black meets White. We need more of this.
