Remove Rizzo

Remove Rizzo

Let’s demote this “crumb bum” and remove his statue from the steps of Philadelphia’s Municipal Services Building. Frank Rizzo’s legacy of racial divisiveness and thuggery is no longer one that Philly should endorse. Like an effigy of an authoritarian dictator, the statue looms over our provincial politics and is a symbol of our dysfunction. Move him somewhere less prominent and let’s reserve our high profile public spaces for memorials of figures that all Philadelphians can be proud of.

  4. With a changing society a sociaties symbols must change with it this promoting growth. You did say move it to a less profiled place and I think that would be righteous, a museum for instances and our history books so the symbol's lesson is never forgotten.
