Tomb of the Unknown Nigger


In El Dorado County California, the county board of supervisors plans to replace 36 headstones marking the graves of unknown Negroes. The graves were originally moved from Negro Hill Cemetery in 1954 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers during construction of the Folsom Dam. So why replace the headstones now? Because they are politically incorrect. Apparently, when the markers were placed over the relocated graves in 1954, some wisenhitler thought it would be funny to substitute the word nigger for negro over each of the graves! So instead of saying, "Moved from Negro Hill Cemetery", the stones say "Moved from Nigger Hill Cemetery". And to add insult to injury, two of the headstones scheduled for replacement were recently stolen!
