Slave trader Edward Colston rightfully gets tossed...

Black Lives Matter protesters have rightfully teared down a Bristol statue of 17th century slave trader Edward Colston. 

They covered it in red paint and then threw it in the river. In 2014, a large portion of the community had petitioned to have the offensive statue removed, and the government did f*ck all. Colston was an oppressive figure and should NOT be immortalized. All statues of oppressive figures should be removed, PERIOD.
