With Confederate soldier statues being torn down all over the South, the trend continues to the West Coast. A 1,600-sq-ft mural at George Washington High School may suffer the same fate. It features historic oppression of minorities.
It portrays George Washington reading a map, while white settlers with rifles walk over the body of a dead Native American. Another scene shows the owner of Mount Vernon plantation’s slaves at work in the fields. Of course, it’s all true history, something many contemporary political activists seek to erase or modernize.
