A statue of a white angel standing
on a black demon in a southern Ghana churchyard has sparked a backlash on
social media, with many stating it reinforces racist stereotypes.
Some users on social media accused the statue’s sculptor of advocating
white supremacist ideology. “This needs to come down, not [be] repainted,”
Others are suggesting that all
statues of Jesus Christ be painted black.
This isn’t the first time Statues has caused debates in Ghana. In 2018, A
statue of Ghandi was demolished in a protest stating that he didn’t have
respect for Africans and it reflected in his writing.
