Make Octavia Butler the WFA Statue Instead of Lovecraft

This is important to me not only because Butler is a vastly superior writer, but because Lovecraft's racism and sexism permeated everything he wrote: his fantasies were those of the bigoted and intolerant, while Butler's works explored the dystopian and utopian possibilities of worlds forced to confront injustice and intolerance of all kinds.
