Okay, from my perspective, here's where we are with statues. The president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe wants Mount Rushmore removed because it's on Sioux land. Okay, good luck with that one.
Anybody who had anything to do with slavery should come down. Okay, the biggest slave traders in the Southwest were the Comanche, the Apache and Navajo, so take all those statues down.
I'll give you ten bucks if you can identify who is portrayed on this statue. Hint: he's a white guy and he liked to ride horses.
Okay Wise Guy, What About Your Own Statue?
It started with an Arizona Centennial painting to honor both of my grandmother's pluck and tenacity.
Okay, one final offer: I'll give you twenty bucks if you can tell me who is being honored on this statue?
Hint: He's a white guy who liked to ride horses.
