San Francisco to paint over George Washington mural

San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington. The mural once seen as educational and innovative is now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people. Most of the earmarked funds will go toward a required environmental review and to cover expected legal challenges.
