I didn't understand his legacy growing up. Now that I do, I fully support this movement.

I'm signing because there are so many ACTUAL heroes we should be celebrating. the underground railroad came through Buffalo; why would we have a statue of this dude if we could celebrate free enslaved people with more than just a plaque?

Museums and history books are for remembering history. Statues are for glorifying historic figures. We can remember Christopher Columbus without praising his racist actions.

Because Statues of oppression and colonization should be dismantled. It’s time to honor our native brothers and sisters, especially in Buffalo
