This is what happens when the kids skip History class...

 
From New York Post - On Thanksgiving, a statue of a young Abraham Lincoln in Senn Park in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood was found covered in splotches of red paint along with the words “COLONIZER” and “LAND BACK,” the Chicago Tribune reported.
According to the outlet, the statue also had “Dakota 38” written on it, in reference to the Dakota Sioux members who Lincoln ordered to be executed following the Dakota War of 1862. Lincoln commuted the sentences of 264 Dakota fighters but sentenced 38 to be hung in Minnesota, which became the largest mass execution in US history. The statue has resided in the outdoor park since 1997.
Here's the report on local TV:

  1. Lincoln has been whitewashed for generations, some red paint and a dose of truth might be in order.

  2. Don't blame it on kids - it's the pick & choose History that is currently taught in schools.

  3. Sorry, but Lincoln is in the top 5, maybe top 3, worst Presidents ever. Not for ordering the death of natives. Not for freeing the slaves, but for the methods he used to do so. Many of his decrees violated the Constitution, even more so than Obammy and Bush, or Roosevelt. His war caused the death of almost a million people, for no good reason.

  4. Must have been done by all those white supremacist anti-abolitionists that want to bring back slavery. Chicago is a known hotbed for them, I hear. Some guy named Smollett said so.
