China gets the call on MLK

 I tend to agree with the critics here, the monument of Rev. King will be sculpted by Lei yixen of China. In my opinion the statue should have been done by an African American or at least by an American and you can’t tell me they could not find an African American with talent galore to perform this honer, Ed Dwight a prominent American sculptor said he was overlooked for the project because the backers of the King Memorial Foundation hoped the Chinese government would donate $25 million to the King memorial fund. Not to take anything away from the Chinese sculptor I would think America can find one with skill also and I believe that an American could capture the best ‘essence’ of King knowing more of what King stood for and his accomplishments.
