FORCE IDAHO TO REMOVE MURALS OF INDIAN LYNCHING sign now

SUPPORT the removal of two murals depicting an American Indian being hanged by armed whites from the currently-abandoned county courthouse in Idaho's capital. Starting in 2008, the Idaho Legislature plans to meet in this courthouse as its century-old Statehouse undergoes a $115 million revamp. Everybody entering this courthouse is forced to walk past the murals as they climb steps to where the House and Senate meet. This year, leaders from Idaho's five American Indian tribes spent much of February inside the Capitol, campaigning on sovereignty issues including gas taxes and tribal gaming rights. Preserving these murals is akin to posting artwork depicting the gassing of Jews during World War II on any governmental office building wall in modern Germany today! Tell Arthur Hart, director emeritus of the Idaho State Historical Society and others in Idaho's historical societies that this is blatantly racist and unacceptable.

    This should not even be an issue. They should be removed, period. If the murals were of African Americans being whipped to death or women being burned at the stake in Salem, it wouldn't be tolerated. This is not a matter of being "politically correct", bu

    How can anyone with a heart, look at that mural everyday when they come for work. It is a disgrace to the intelligence of the human race. My question is, why would anyone paint it, was it for these days, so mankind could question the ways.

    people would not think twice about the immorality of the mural and its despicable racist nature if it depicted Blacks being lynched or Jews being gassed, so what does it take to get ignorant, racist whites to recognize this when it is perpetrated against

    Historical or not, these murals are racist, degrading, and violent and should be removed.

    It would be in the best interests of all people to remove these murals. although they may depict a portion of history , their contined appearance tends to keep alive the tension and anti-tolerant sentiments that are already a strong part of the relationsh
