Hostilities flare at Emancipation Memorial, black man slams protesters: 'Y’all don’t know the history of this statue' - TheBlaze:
Protesters gathered in Lincoln Park to demand the Emancipation Memorial be removed, but one black man stood up to the crowd and attempted to educate them about the historic statue.
Don Folden, a tour guide in D.C., gave a history lesson on the statue that shows Abraham Lincoln freeing a slave.
"A lot of people out here are talking about tearing down something that they don't even know the history of," Folden told the protesters assembled outside the fence protecting the statue. "Y'all don't even know the history of this statue, but you want to tear it down because you are offended."
