Reader: Manifest Destiny is nothing to celebrate
Colorado native Francisco Sotomayor has been touring the country with his monumental "American Woman," a 10,000-pound sculpture he carved from Colorado marble. And at each showing, he signs three-inch chunks of marble from the original block so that visitors can take home a piece of "American Woman," which he sees as representational of this country's "Manifest Destiny."
But not everyone agrees that's a thing to celebrate. Says DonkeyHotay:
"Manifest Destiny" = Genocide
Not something most civilized cultures would be proud of, much less celebrate.
