As usual this is a bunch of racist deplorable saying that it is a racist painting when in fact it is not. It just shows how far the country has progressed. Yet they LIE and ACCUSE! BS Power grab.

Because It is unjust that actions against Anti Racist Art should be opposed especially with an artist who worked with the great Mexican Muralist who was praised by Leon Trotsky and Others.

This is an accurate depiction of teaching American history in that it shows the evils of slavery and the killing of native Americans as the country expanded at their expense. Being done in the 1930’s adds another dimension to this great art work. Removing this because of mid characterization of the intention for political purposes is not right. Do not destroy this please.

The Murals were created to express the complexity of history by showing the dark side of the historic heroes. This is hard to take, but it is an important part of this art, and an important experience for students. The mural does not glorify slavery or oppression. quite the contrary.

Artistic representation of oppression are to help people learn and understand culture, history, evolution and to rise above oppression as well as not implementing it.
