Why Does The New MLK “Embrace” Statue Look Like A Giant _____?


Oh my…

Look, this is one of those articles I’m not going to tell you what I think, I’m just going to show you what a lot of other people think and show you pictures and video for yourself and let YOU decide.

Let’s start off with the background.

A giant bronze statue was commissioned in Boston to honor the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nice, right?

Unfortunately, sometimes things sound better on paper than they do when finished.

The idea for the statue was to honor this famous photo:

Unfortunately, they decided to cut off the heads and the result is, well, you decide…

When it’s being described as “veiny” that’s when I think you’ve got some problems:


Now, it could just be a bad angle, so let’s watch the full video:

Yikes, not much better….

Fox35 reports:

Annual tributes and commemorations of the life and legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. began nationwide Friday and included the unveiling of a statue in Boston.

The 20-foot-high bronze sculpture called “The Embrace” is said to be one of the country’s largest memorials dedicated to racial equity.

When looking at the sculpture, you’ll see four intertwined arms — inspired by a photo of the civil rights leader and his wife, Coretta Scott King, when they learned he had won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

King first met his wife in Boston in the early 1950s, when he was a doctoral student in theology at Boston University and she was studying at the New England Conservatory of Music.

“My parents’ time in Boston is often a forgotten part of their history – and the history of the movement they helped inspire,” said Martin Luther King, III in a press release. “The Embrace is a commemoration of their relationship and journey and represents the meaningful role Boston served in our history.”

So sad that this will be the legacy:
