The monument of George Washington was concealed from the crowd during the annual King Day at the Dome rally.
The NAACP says no insult to Washington was intended - the three-sided structure that covered the front and sides of the statue was intended to display a rally graphic.
George Washington statue is hidden at the MLK rally in Columbia , SC. The rally was sponsored by the NAACP. They hid the statue of George Washington in order to avoid offending anyone. What would happen if a statue of MLK was hidden in order to avoid offending anyone...some races would get their feelings hurt. How can we promote racial equality when crap like this continues to happen?
FUNNY, the other statues were allowed to be uncovered with the signs and banners around them...
