The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Statue [Pic]

It"s obvious, Mao Zedong, the Chinese sculptor who made this statue, is an Empire Strikes Back fan.

He`s supposed to be coming out of the mountain (which you can`t see because that is the front view). The quote is "Out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope." The monument is actually really beautiful, I was just there in November.

Unlike Solo, MLK took the pain of the carbonite without flinching. Badass!

Strange (or at least it should be strange) to see so many comments about race considering who the post is about...

So an Asian guy sculpted this...in China? They couldn`t find an American black man/woman to do it? That seems kind of...stupid.

Gerry: It was carved in China, which is why he looks a little Chinese.

Mao Zedong? Gosh, it must have been hard to sculpt it from inside the mausoleum he`s been entombed in since 1976.

Yeah, I met Dr. Martin Luther King in 1962 in Memphis, Tennessee. I walkin` down the street minding my own business, just walking on. Feelin` good. I walk around the corner, a man walk up, hit me in my chest, right. I fall on the ground, right. And I look up and it`s Dr. Martin Luther King. I said `Dr. King?` and he said `Ooops, I thought you were some body else.`

Is the poster making some kind of bad joke? The sculptor`s name is Lei Yixin, not funny sweetie, not funny at all.
