UW-Madison student gov votes to remove Lincoln statue, a `remnant` of `white supremacy`

Ken Notes: I edit this news archive, and wanted to weigh in as editor with an opinion. There is a history to be remembered regarding our past successes, failures, opinions, and beliefs. To suggest a historical figure has to be perfect by our current standards would suggest that no statue could be on display, Lincoln - out, Martin Luther King - out, founding fathers - out, leaders in the civil rights movement out.

I would suggest that the Student government at the UW would be better served by requesting more statues be included on campus rather than fewer. I would strongly support Vel Phillips, Father Groppi, Lloyd Barbee, Marilyn Morheuser, Vada Harris, and more. There is work to be done but our motto is Forward and that is the direction we need to be moving...
