There is nothing to say about this one.  Perhaps this is a moment to reflect in silence.

  1. This underwater statue has nothing to do with slavery. Do the reasearch before you believe everything you read on the internet.

  2. This is not the right statue , there is one were you see lots of african Americans women , men and children praying and thing like that . This is also a stair that represents African American history I just know its not the right statue the the topic explains

    This is a wonderful thing but why is it hidden on the atlantic ocean floor it should be where it can be seen by all that wishes to.

  4. It needs sculptures of the babies many women were holding when they jumped. Never forget that so many slaves jumped overboard or were dumped due to sickness, example, or to avoid detection that it permanently changed the migratory routed of Atlantic ocean sharks. For millions of years they followed the magnetic currents, now they swim the routes the slave ships took to the Americas. NEVER FORGET.

  5. I went looking for this and I don’t think that’s what it is. I found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molinere_Underwater_Sculpture_Park which says it’s a ring of children and has nothing to do with slavery. It’s an impressive piece, though.

    TO: My Fellow Americans and People of Good Will Around the World!

    SUBJECT: Unreported Taser Incident of 20 Year Old Black African Male (Boston, Georgia)

    Why are today’s patriots and Christians not demanding that freedom of speech and freedom of the press be respected along with South Georgia Citizens right to know what takes places in their beloved communities? Is it that the State of Georgia is so use to these incidents that this is no longer considered news worthy in the State?

    In addition, we must remember that Georgia Legislators have allowed the State of Georgia to remain “An At Will to Work (State) Law.” This means that Georgia workers can be fired for good cause, bad cause or for no cause at all. And that their employers are not even required to tell them why they were fired. Thanks to the politicians we sent to serve our reverse needs in 2012—how sad?

    So why were you NOT informed about the news worthy Taser incident? Were you informed about Congressman Sanford Bishop Staffer and Aid Worker “Michael F. Bryant” case that were completed in Brooks County last week? What have been reported about the sentencing date of the individual that pleaded guilty to charges that involved a firearm? So what is happening here in the New South? Please follow the links and make up your own mind….It is what it is…

    g.Valdosta State University Professors perhaps got it right! See the Chorus of Fear Video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3930808120854021155#

    •So, we are not who we claim to be but who we prove ourselves to be over a given period of time. Thanks for being in tune to the realities of what has been excluded from our mind for whatever reasons.
