People have been pulling down confederate monuments from left to right lately and I’m here for it. Although there are still many confederate monuments in place, Nathan Coflin started a petition to replace one in particular with Missy Elliot.

He wrote, “Who better to encapsulate the culture and spirit of the city enshrined in a new monument than Grammy Award winning rapper, dancer, and record producer Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott?”

“Together we can put white supremacy down, flip it, and reverse it,” the petition continued.

The petition only needed 100 signatures, but as of now, it has over 16K.

Now that the number of signatures on the petition has exceeded that of 100, it will be presented to Mayor John L. Rowe, Vice Mayor Paige Cherry, and city council.

If you want your signature on this wave, visit the change.org website.
