Do you recall Rick saying "We should keep this picture online" (that's the topic description)? I don't want to blame him for posting this up. Like Mei Houwang said, such historical facts should be well kept for the generations to come but I can sense that he has an ulterior motive. The first time I looked at his post, it had already receive a red -1 rating. Despite getting negative comments, he said nothing to defend himself. Instead, he dropped another link for us to have a look. To be honest, I do think he's pretty darn cunning.
But it is important, IMO, and I agree with him. Just as important as the Enola Gay or the bus Rosa Parks rode on. While it's true that the sign doesn't say what Rick wants it to, it is a reminder of how petty people can be and hopefully a fixed point to measure how far we've come...or how much further we need to go.
What's needed here is to not become enraged by a rumor, which you and I believe to be Rick's goal. I have faith in human nature and I knew the members of CHF wouldn't rise to the bait. And mostly, we didn't.
Let's keep this thread clean (move Bruce Lee to his thread, if you would like to continue discussing him) so that when the mistaken sign resurfaces in a few years time, there will be even less to accuse humankind of.
