Aug 22, 2017 | G-BLOG | 0 comments


A petition has been launched in the Virginia to replace an unpopular Confederate monument with one of veteran rapper Missy Elliot!

The current monument located in the city of Portsmouth was built between 1876 and 1881. Petition organizers say Missy Elliot would be “true Portsmouth native hero,” and who better to “encapsulate the culture and spirit of the city” than the Grammy Award-winning rapper.

So far the petition has attracted more than 26,000 signatures, enough to be submitted to the mayor and city council for consideration.
