Take Down the McKinley Statue in Hawaii: White supremacy doesn't end at the Confederacy
This petition had 1,616 supporters
Hawai'i invites our sisters and brothers across the world to stand with us against the ongoing celebratory recognition of President William McKinley, the figurehead of U.S. imperialism and white supremacy in the Pacific.
McKinley’s statue and commemoration is an act condoning international crimes against native persons of the aforementioned lands and beyond. It stands as a reminder of the same hateful racist-driven “white power” that we witnessed during the recent Charlottesville protests and all that it does to divide us to this day.
As an example to the world, we call for the just removal of his statue in Hawaii and we demand that the currently named William McKinley High School revert back to it’s original name, ”Honolulu High School.”
