Statue of doctor who experimented on enslaved women removed from Central Park
by Gabriela Milian

Tuesday April 17th 2018


WHO'S IN CONTROL?


New York (CNN) — A statue of Dr. James Marion Sims is being removed on Tuesday from Central Park.

The decision was approved by New York City's Public Design Commission after Mayor Bill de Blasio created the task force following protests across the country over Confederate statues.

The city will relocate the statue, erected in 1894, to Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York, where Sims is buried, according to the mayor's office.

The design commission on Monday voted unanimously, 7-0, to move the statue.

Sims was a surgeon in the 19th century who conducted experiments on women, usually women of color and mostly enslaved black women.

Silent Sam Removed!
by Will Michaels, Elizabeth Baier & Lisa Phili


North Carolina's flagship public university removed the pedestal where a now toppled Confederate statue, known as "Silent Sam," once stood on a main campus quad, early Tuesday morning.
 
The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill announced at 1 a.m. that the removal had begun, and by 2:40 it was all over.

A work crew with a large truck, a forklift and floodlights took the last piece of the base from the main quad, leading to cheers from a crowd that had gathered to watch.

The surprise removal was ordered Monday by Chancellor Carol Folt, who also announced that she will step down.

Though Folt said she would resign at the end of the school year, the university's Board of Governors voted on Tuesday to make her resignation effective Jan. 31.

In a conference call with reporters Tuesday, Folt said her resignation is not connected to her decision to remove the remnants of the monument from campus.

She said she did not want her job status to be part of her decision about the monument.

"I have not used it in that way," Folt told reporters.

"That's not how I've thought about it. I try to do the right thing regardless of that effect on my job situation.

And it may be hard to believe, but that's absolutely how I operate."

Folt said she believed it was time for her to move on after checking off a list of accomplishments like meeting fundraising goals and leading the school through an academic scandal.

Board of Governors Chair Harry Smith said the move to end Folt's time at UNC early is not meant to punish the chancellor.

"We just felt strongly that based on where we're at here, in order to move the institution forward that we needed to make a change," Smith said.

"That's not punitive in any way, shape form or fashion.

She resigned and we accepted it.

We just felt it was better to compress the timeline and work more toward a healing process."


The statue had stood on a main campus quad from 1913 until it was torn down by protesters in August 2018.

Folt announced her resignation in a campuswide email and said she was concerned about safety at the site that continues to draw protesters for and against the statue, but she gave no timetable for taking away the massive pedestal and bronze memorial plaques.

The items will go into storage while their fate is decided.

"The presence of the remaining parts of the monument on campus poses a continuing threat both to the personal safety and well-being of our community and to our ability to provide a stable, productive educational environment," Folt said in her letter to the Carolina community.

"The fact that despite our best efforts even since then, threats have continued to grow and place our community at serious risk has led me to authorize this action."

Last month, the board overseeing North Carolina's public universities rejected the UNC Trustees' plan for a center to house a Confederate statue on the Chapel Hill campus.

Detroit City Council vetoes Autorama stunt, objects to Confederate flag

by Jonathon Ramsey

Detroit's Autorama hot rod show will stage its 67th annual event next month, and wants to kick off with Burt Reynolds tribute.

The plan is to re-create the Mulberry Bridge jump from "Smokey and the Bandit" using a movie-correct 1977 Pontiac Trans Am.

But the Detroit City Council voted 7-1 to prohibit the jump.
Why?


Because the Trans Am's front license plate holder displays the former Georgia state flag, a portion of which is the Confederate national flag, and the city council doesn't like that.

In the movie, Bo "Bandit" Darville was a Georgia driving legend, and the flag on the car was Georgia's flag at the time.

Councilman Scott Benson laid out the council's position when he said that the car "still proudly flies a Confederate flag, which is a symbol of oppression, slavery, as well as home-bred American terrorism.

So this body said we are not going to support that type of symbolism nor the audacity to support that type of activity in the city of Detroit."

It seems part of the council's ire comes from the same event two years ago.

A stunt group called the Northeast Ohio Dukes re-created a "Dukes of Hazzard" jump in 2017 using a series-correct 1969 Dodge Charger, complete with a Confederate flag on the roof.

Benson said the stunt group "expressly said they would not display that [Confederate flag] symbol during the jump."

Not only was it displayed, but when driver Raymond Kohn gave interviews after the jump, his driving suit featured the Stainless Banner on the collar.

Seems the council has been grinding its axe in silence for two years. Now Benson accuses Autorama of "a history of supporting images and symbols of racism, oppression, and white supremacy."

Autorama is certain to take place March 1-3 at Cobo Center.

This year's show will have around 800 cars on display, along with a special exhibit of 17 low riders and a Batmobile built by Flint native Carl Casper.

Even if the Bandit car doesn't make the jump, the Trans Am and other memorabilia from the film will be there.

A spokeswoman for Autorama said, "We are continuing to work to try to resolve this with the city."

New Jersey Park Removes Mississippi Flag From Local Display, Denounces Its Confederate Roots

by CBS News NY



(JERSEY CITY, N.J.) – A battle between two governors is brewing over a flag in New Jersey’s Liberty State Park.

Gov. Phil Murphy has ordered the Mississippi state flag removed from a display that includes each of the 50 state flags and overlooks the Statue of Liberty.

The Mississippi flag displays a confederate battle emblem in the upper left corner.

Murphy said, because of that, the flag does not reflect the values of “inclusivity and equality.”

Murphy said he made the decision after Democratic state Sen. Sandra Cunningham raised the issue with him.

Cunningham said in a statement that the flag symbolized “an era of hate, violence, and division.”

On Saturday, Mississippi’s governor, Phil Bryant, said he’s disappointed in the decision and that his state’s voters should decide what is represented on their flag and what is not.

Mississippians, who voted in a 2001 statewide election, chose to keep the flag.

Several Mississippi cities and counties and all eight of the state’s public universities have stopped flying it in recent years amid criticism that the battle emblem is a racist reminder of slavery and segregation.

Supporters of the flag say it represents history. "Yeah... a cowardly, creepy racist history"
