A statue that stood in tribute to Jackie Robinson was removed and burned over the past weekend, in Wichita, Kansas. I should be speechless, but the way things have been going, I'm not surprised...sadly. Sad

I don't know what to say! Exclamation It's a horrible act and I feel like there's nothing I can add to the shock here.

My gosh and now I am even more shocked than before, that they found the statue was stolen for scrapping metal!

Good news--the recovered cleats are being donated to the Jackie Robinson Museum.
