    Link: The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Statue - It`s obvious, Mao Zedong, the Chinese sculptor who made this statue, is an Empire Strikes Back fan.

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

    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.`

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

    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.

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

    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.
