Y'all.... I just want you guys to know that at the protest in Rochester, cops keep gassing the Frederick Douglass statue on the sidewalk because they think he's a protester who isn't leaving.

You cannot MAKE THIS SHIT UP.

@marie_joseph @rey

Also any Confederate/Colonialist statue not yet toppled by activists could be discreetly covered over by a giant inverted soup can after the cops have gone home to bed. Just sayin'.

"I am glad, fellow-citizens, that your nation is so young... I repeat, I am glad this is so. There is hope in the thought, and hope is much needed, under the dark clouds which lower above the horizon. The eye of the reformer is met with angry flashes, portending disastrous times; but his heart may well beat lighter at the thought that America is young, and that she is still in the impressible stage of her existence. May he not hope that high lessons of wisdom, of justice and of truth, will yet give direction to her destiny? Were the nation older, the patriot's heart might be sadder, and the reformer's brow heavier. Its future might be shrouded in gloom, and the hope of its prophets go out in sorrow."

- Frederick Douglass, "What to a Slave is the Fourth of July?," delivered July 5th, 1852, Corinthian Hall, Rochester, NY

The building in the background with the Corinthian columns... By any chance would that be Corinthian Hall?
