A “dog” burial dating back more than 100 years sparked widespread controversy in Britain due to a “racist” text written on it since the dog was buried. Still, anti-racism protests against blacks have recently drawn attention to it, prompting officials to remove it.
And once again, the wave of controversy erupted after the news that the responsible racial witness had been returned to the grave by officials in the city of Coventry, which angered the public opinion.
The Coventry Council has denied that it is looking to return the tombstone of the dog carrying racist insult after it was quietly removed at the Black Lives Matter protests’ height.
Coventry City Council deemed the memorial to the pet that died in 1902 “inappropriate” for the current era.
It included displaying the Black N-word, which was deleted when the anti-racism movement swept the Atlantic after the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in the United States.
The headstone has since been placed in a “safe store” near where it has stood for more than 100 years next to a hotel in Combe Park.
The council has remained silent about plans for a dog’s grave but released some details under the Freedom of Information Act this week.
This comes after a previous controversy due to the local authority’s statements that it will not remove the quarantine following a complaint about “racism” last year.
Members of the public reported that it had disappeared despite the statements. Later, in its response to the information request, the council said: “We have removed the tombstone on June 9, 2020, to remain in a safe storage in Coombe Abbey … and its planned future use will be discussed with the park management.”
He added, “It is only a discussion about plans for tombstones at this stage.” This created a sharp division in public opinion about the responsible racist text on the headstone.
It was believed to have been a popular name for pets at the time, as they likened “black people to ancient dogs,” and a visitor to the park Nathan said: “I think holding an exhibition to showcase the participation of luxury British homeowners like Combi Abbey in the transatlantic slave trade would be an appropriate way. To present the case. ”
This will explain the shamelessness of these ancient Britons. America used the offensive word when blacks were being killed and burned alive in the street, which is what the average British citizen considered “nice” and appropriate to call their pets.
Another explained to Metro: “I also believe that the vast majority of blacks do not feel offended at all from the dog’s grave witness and that it was removed just because officials feared that they would be described as racist.”
