Christopher Columbus Statue in Chicago Taken Down, Reportedly on Mayor's Orders
A Christopher Columbus statue was taken down by city workers from a park in Chicago in predawn hours, a win for Black Lives Matter demonstrators who recently tried to tear it down themselves.
The decision to remove the statue of the Italian explorer was reportedly made by Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat.
