We the people of the Mastic, Shirley, Moriches community; hereby petition to “remove, relocate, contextualize, or cover the monument of William Floyd.”  William Floyd is a constant reminder to the oppression of the minorities in this community. The statue is a symbol of rebellion and subliminal RACISM. Although William Floyd was a New York senator and a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence, he is not a Hero. William Floyd was a proud slave owner! Floyd is a major contributor to the division amongst our community. The statue was placed to honor Floyd for building this community but institutional racism must be removed in order to achieve our ultimate goal of unity.
