ATLANTA–The statue of Thomas E. Watson, racist, is set to be moved from capitol grounds thanks to an order from the governor, but crews are finding it hard to locate the bronze statue thanks to it being apparently racist against marble statues.

“He was such a vehement racist in life that even a statue made in his likeness is racist as well,” said Gerald Hindman, GA Capitol worker. Hindman says every time they try to place the bronze statue of Watson near a group of historical figures carved out of marble, it topples repeatedly, seemingly in effort to knock over the marble counterparts.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Hindman. “That statue is racist as hell.”
