Default Man busted for painting ‘slave owner’ on George Washington statue in Union Square Park


Man busted for painting ‘slave owner’ on George Washington statue in Union Square Park

A 37-year-old shi thead was busted Wednesday for scrawling “slave owner” on the George Washington statue in Union Square Park, cops said.

The man was caught with brushes, bottles of acrylic paints and cans of spray paint just after 11:40 a.m., according to police.

Richard Maye was charged with two counts of making graffiti, criminal mischief and other misdemeanor graffiti charges, police said.

Maye did not immediately respond for comment.

Officials said there will be a George washing soon.

“We are aware of the graffiti and will remove as soon as possible,” a city Parks Department spokesperson said.

Washington relied on hundreds of slaves to build his Mount Vernon, Va., estate, according to the group that runs a historical site there.

The vandalism was the latest incident as part of the nationwide backlash against historic American figures associated with racism amid protests over racial inequality and police brutality.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the statue of President Teddy Roosevelt at the American Museum of Natural History will be removed.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
