Protesters Vow To Take Down Emancipation Memorial Statue — That Was Entirely Funded By Freed Slaves

Protesters vowed Tuesday to topple Washington DC’s Emancipation Memorial statue that depicts President Abraham Lincoln freeing a slave from his fetters.

“A speaker at the protest against the Emancipation statue of Lincoln in DC said it represents how black people are inferior to white people. He added they aren’t going to wait for the police to give them their liberation,” journalist Julio Rosas tweeted Tuesday.

The people who paid for the statue to be built were reportedly freed slaves — including many former Union soldiers who were not even allowed to join the U.S. military at the beginning of the Civil War.

In recent weeks vandals have toppled statues of various American historical figures — frequently without interference from police. The mobs began with Confederate statues but soon progressed to other leaders.
