"NEW YORK A statue based on the famous photograph of the flag-raising at the World Trade Center site is being criticized because the three white firefighters in the picture have been transformed into one white, one black and one Hispanic."
Um...yeah...so it was inspired. Is that an excuse? I don't know but if he's going to put a black man and a latino up there, the designer may as well add a fourth or fifth dude. Where are the AZNs, yo? How about an Arab?
I think it's lame, lame, lame. I wonder how the real firemen feel...
"Gee, I don't *feeeeeeel* black..."
I'm just surprised there's not another white-looking one there with a yarmulke and a Star of David flying out of his ass or something.
