"It’s very ignorant and backward to think that you can erase history, erase reality by destroying art."

Alice Walker is against the destruction of the San Francisco murals:

"Ms. Walker, who is also a poet and activist, criticized the stance that the images traumatize young people. Her daughter went to Washington High School and was not traumatized, she said. 'This feeling that everybody now is so tenderhearted that they can’t bear to know their history is ridiculous.'"
