Why outrage about the flag and not the Statue of Liberty?

Re Jan. 23 Issac Bailey column, “Join me for flag discussion”

If history demands that we keep this symbol of racism, then I wonder why the Germans have given up on the swastika. I see that the black community has not given up on the flag, but has given the Statue of Liberty a free pass. George Bernard Shaw once wrote “I have always been called a master of irony, but not even I could have thought of putting the Statue of Liberty in New York”.
