We the undersigned bring this petition for the removal of the statue of Gandhi at The King Center in Atlanta, Georgia for your consideration.
Gandhi is revered and idolized worldwide by many as a prophet, a visionary, even a messiah. However, the popular narrative of Gandhi is a myth. The lack of efficient methods of communication and documentation in the past allowed Gandhi to effortlessly create a convincing but false life story. With the help of linguistic researchers, historians and digital technology, the truth has been uncovered about Gandhi racist views against Black Africans.
Because of these revealing facts about Gandhi, statues of him are being challenged and taken down around the world including the University of Ghana.
A statue of Gandhi stands at The King Center that honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and it must come down. It is such an insult to have a statue of a racist against Black Africans exalted on the grounds that honor Dr. King who gave his life fighting racism.
And yes, Dr. King modeled his non-violent approach to social justice from Gandhi’s work. But clearly he did not know of Gandhi’s genuine racists views of Blacks Africans.
Dr. Bernice King, knowledge is power. Now that we know that Gandhi was a racist, we ask you to use your power to remove/retire this statue at The King Center.
