NAACP's hiding of statue an insult to our history

On Jan. 17, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on our Statehouse grounds placed high partitions around the bronze statue of George Washington, the first president of the United States, effectively covering the statue from view.

Do I find the actions of the offensive? Yes, I do.

When the NAACP and their fellow travelers deliberately refuse to honor, teach or recall the efforts of those who built our nation, then we risk losing it all.
