A wall in Liberty City that was built to separate blacks and whites is being considered for historical status. Am I the only one that thinks this is a terrible idea? For one thing, a wall with historical status is still a wall: still does what the original did: make it more difficult to get from here to there. More importantly, the perpetrators of racism are the ones that need to be reminded of stuff like this, not the victims. Update: Miami-Dade historical page. (via Urban Paradise)

    I absolutely agree. It is a stupid idea. The Berlin wall was torn down. Today, there is only a little piece with a lot of historical explanations as to why it was a really bad idea. Perhaps we can keep a 6 foot piece of the Liberty City wall along with a display about why racism is always a bad idea.
