Alright, that's a little much, don't peeps think? A statue for being a figure in history that chose to stay seated on a bus. Why a statue?

I think it's what she represents...yeah she just "stayed seated" and yeah people had done it before her, but her moment came to symbolize a benchmark in our struggle.

But a statue for it? They afraid she going to be forgotten?

If people admire the person, let them be admired, not some cold image of them that doesn't show forth much at all.
