Statue of Slave Trader Taken Down In England. Some Object.

This version of the story is from Bored Panda.

The street artist Banksy proposed an innovative solution to what could be done with the empty plinth formerly occupied by a statue of a slave trader known as Edward Colston.

Some people disagreed with his idea, as well as the actions of the crowd in removing the statue in the first place. Well, people will disagree, and everyone is entitled to an opinion, one supposes.

This comment included below the story took the cake, in my own opinion.

"anne.302 That makes you as bad!"

Sorry, anne.302*, but pulling down a statue isn't quite as bad a thing as making a profit off of selling thousands of human beings into bondage where they would regularly be beaten and raped. But hey, that's just me. You probably think that I'm as bad as the statue topplers and slave traders. Actually, I think of myself as more of a Genghis Khan type person.

*Are there actually 301 more like you? I may need to re-adjust some travel plans in the future.
