The Windrush statue is a symbol of broken, Brexit Britain

It seems bizarre, at best, that the government has sponsored this monument while continuing to deny the existence of institutional racism and the impact it has on people such as those from the Windrush generation, as well as their descendants.

From what I’m hearing, it seems that not many members of grassroots communities were actually invited to the grand unveiling. Some have expressed fears that it was an occasion restricted almost exclusively to the “great and the good”. The word on the street is that the majority of those invited to attend were people with fine titles and an assortment of letters after their names. Why is that?

Only selected journalists were invited, too, which raises worrying questions about access and the function of our free press.

Statue is a symbol of broken, EU Germany.

Anti-Jewish medieval sculpture can stay on church, top German court rules

BERLIN, June 14 (Reuters) - Germany's top court ruled on Tuesday that an anti-Semitic, medieval sculpture can stay on the facade of a church in the eastern town of Wittenberg, rejecting an appeal by a Jewish plaintiff who has for years argued it is an insult to all Jews.

Eh, speaking as a Jew, I'd say "Carefully remove it and put it in a museum", or if that's not possible due to the age of the item, leave it there as a reminder of how things where back in the day and how it eventually culminated in the holocaust. This isn't like the confederate ones over here where it was put up in the sixties to remind 'uppity blacks' to remember who runs **** south of the Mason-Dixon Line. 

(Since this is a european part of the forum, that's the main reason people are peeved about the statues, not because they where put up to commemorate recently fallen war dead, but because they where put up in surges whenever civil rights gained traction)
