US: Statue Of Enslaved Man Kneeling Before Abraham Lincoln Removed

In the wake of the George Floyd incident that happened in June, Boston authorities have decided to remove a statue of an enslaved man kneeling before Abraham Lincoln after 141 years. The statue depicted a nude man kneeling in front of fully dressed Lincoln. According to the activists, the statue highlighted racism. However, the sculpture would not be destroyed but only moved somewhere else, where it can be "better explained".
