Misconstrued? I don't think so. Frederick Douglas wrote a letter at the time the statue was completed and he basically called it inappropriate and offensive in its depiction of African america.. this was over a hundred years ago.You mean the one that freed slaves paid for that shows a slave with his chains broken standing up for the first time as a free man? The one that keeps getting misconstrued by morons to be a slave that is lower or bowing to Lincoln?
Ugh. Don't fall for that crap.
