    Default Libtards remove statues of King Leopold II

    King Leopold II statues are being removed in Belgium. Who was he? - CNN

    Disgraceful. Just because a white man once got a bit of entrepreneurial activity going in Africa, that makes him a so-called racist or some tulip like that. Don't folk care that he used to give money to charity?

    The Belgians were particularly brutal colonial masters.

    But leaving the statue and adding context is a way to give it meaning. Or remove to a museum and add a plaque explaining why.

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    All history is bad. It should be erased.

    Appears both 'The Mighty Boosh' and 'The League of Gentlemen' have been removed from Netflix today over blackface allegations - including one against the 'Old Greg' character !

    From
    Netflix removes The League of Gentlemen and The Mighty Boosh over blackface | The Independent
    "Netflix removes The League of Gentlemen and The Mighty Boosh over blackface"
    "The Spirit of Jazz in The Mighty Boosh and Papa Lazarou in The League of Gentlemen are both portrayed by white actors, wearing blackface,"
    "Mr Fielding also portrayed the character Old Gregg on the show, which appears to be inspired by musician Rick James, with the actor seemingly wearing blackface in his portrayal."
