Kalamazoo commissioners reconsider controversial monument

By  | 

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WILX) -- Officials in a southwestern Michigan city could decide whether a monument featuring a European settler with a weapon in his hand towering over a Native American should be removed from a park.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports that Kalamazoo city commissioners are to meet Monday night to consider plans for the Fountain of the Pioneers in Bronson Park.

Some residents say the piece is racist. Others argue it's a work of art.
