    Even as a contribution from France and being symbolic as an abolishment to slavery, the image/model was that of Bartholdi's mother or girlfriend. It was alleged that he had thought about using a Black image but the image evolved for several reasons…

    Those orphans,those forced from their homeland(being pushed-out),natural disasters or fear, asylum-seekers,christian missions barnardo's call it how you please BLACKS WERE NONE OF THAT, BLACKS WERE DRAGGED OUT OF THEIR LAND CHAINED AS ANIMALS & THAT BEARS ONLY ONE QUALIFICATION "CRUEL SLAVERY"THAT IS CRIMINAL PERIOD. STOP ADDING SALT TO THE WOUND WITH YOUR NONSENSE.

  4. Jr Ushanga says:

    No living WHITE person is responsible for SLAVERY & COLONIALISM at all. But all living WHITES reap SLAVERY & COLONIALISM benefits, just like all living BLACKS wear SLAVERY & COLONIALISM scars. Remember heredity ain't but CASTLES only, BLOOD spelt while erecting them CASTLES too. It's ALL or NOTHING AT ALL-Jr

  5. She made a good point. The chains are not visible like we, black people are.

  6. Linda Taylor says:

    France and Bartholdi's (sculptural artist) gift was to acknowledge the abolishment of slavery. The statue was altered because some Americans didn't want the image of the chains visible because it would offend others who would oppose the changes of Blacks' lives in America.

  7. We're "not visible" except for the black guy who lives at 1600 Pennslyvania Ave. the idea that in 2015, black people are "not visible" is pure delusion. And a sad attempt to continue the tradition of blaming slavery for the problems that black communities face.

  8. Benign neglect. .. let's pretend that blacks don't exist…

  9. Sorry your name doesn't reflect the statement you made Mr. Bright.. everyone knows that we as black americans have been systematicly imposed into a real life monopoly game with no reparations, restitution, repremands for slavery. All other races have received restitution from the ordeals they went through from the government. Keep enjoying your social illusion…

    Post tramatic slave syndrome? What person is suffering from that considering no one alive today has been a slave…u know the hebrews were slaves for yearsssss under egyptian rule, and i hear radical blacks saying they were the rea kings and queens and pharoas so on and so forth so should the hebrew people s till be feeling owed by blacks too. Give it up. Jesus move on

  12. We have to take responsibility for our own actions but don't kid yourself. White America is still hating and instrumental in keeping us from moving as far as we can. Just look at how they have stifled the president and made him out to be unAmerican. How stupid is that? Donald Trump questioning his citizenship? Who else had to deal with that? States putting restrictions on voting in just the last election? Get real. But we as a people need to teach our children the importance of our history and how education, intelligence and loyalty to our country will get us where we need to be.

  13. the figure France gave was an African woman with chains, they left the chains around the ankles.

  14. Thomas Smith says:

    Aston Aj Bright your statement is categorically in error, and you're a damned fool if you believe what you wrote; or even worse, a brain washed apologist for chattel slavery!

  15. Thomas Smith says:

    please, keep your stupidity to yourself and never have children!

  16. Our people still are suffering from slavery, but a much more subtle form of it. It seeps into all faucets of the modern society. The judicial, political, educational and of course the economic systems of today, were founded upon slavery, but they had to subjugate our minds first! Sites like guidetomoderncredit.com helped me a lot in learning how change some of the economic traps that plague our people. As a people, we have to change our way of thinking and our old ways of doing things before we can expect any different results. We must empower ourselves through knowledge and we will be successful.

  17. THE PEOPLING NON VOLUNTEERY IMMIGRINS SLAVERY IS THE WORD……

  18. Aston Aj Bright Unlike your name you are neither smart nor bright.
