The southern region of the United States has been going through some drastic changes after the recent tragedy in Charleston.
A new petition on MoveOn.org is actually proposing to not remove the Confederate leaders monument at Stone Mountain, but to add both members of Outkast, André 3000 and Big Boi, sitting in their Cadillac to it.
According to the petition page,
I believe it's important to recognize the history and heritage of all Georgians. However, the carving of Davis, Lee, and Jackson on the side of Stone Mountain only represents a small, regrettable time in the history of the Peach State. It's high time we added a bit more of our history and culture to this monument. By no means do we wish to erase or destroy the current carving, which, regardless of its context, is an impressive and historic work of art. We simply wish to add new carvings, of Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast, to the mountainside. There's plenty of room. I believe that Daddy Fat Sacks and Three Stacks should be carved riding in a Cadillac (as is their wont). This will help the new carving blend nicely with the Confederates who are on horseback. Outkast are two of the greatest Georgians in the history of our state. It's about time the Empire State of the South paid proper tribute to them, while also improving a great monument and tourist attraction.
With over 5,000 signatures so far, what are you waiting for to make sure two of the greatest Georgians get recognized?
Joke or not, this would be awesome if it actually happened.
Placing them next to Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson definitely sounds appropriate.
