The city of Derbyshire has faced a 'racist' move in which residents have removed hidden things

The Ashbourne sculpture will be returned with a 'black paint coating', its defenders said

Residents have been taken to a "secret place" for "black liking" in exchange for the fall of a black man with exaggerated amenities to be removed from the town of Derbyshire by the local council.

A wooden sculpture posted on a bend in the middle of Ashbourne has been denounced by campaigners as racist care. After a statue of slave trader Edward Colston topped the statue in Bristol on Sunday, a petition to remove the Ashbourne doll reached 42,000 signatures.

On Monday, the Derbyshire Dales District Council said it would head down with "immediate effect". But before doing so, the sign "Save Me" hung from the archway outside the main Royal Hotel of the Green Man and Black.

Residents of the Dean-infected community gathered on Monday evening and took it upon themselves to hide it, saying local consultations should be held on its future. One participant said the council had sent a cherrypicker to move on Tuesday morning.

There is a national debate on how to view public idols with racism or colonialism. After the removal of Colston's number, activists moved the campaign elsewhere. A protest march against the statue of Cecil Rhodes on Tuesday afternoon in Oxford.

Lucy Hill, the spokeswoman for the original campaign in Ashbourne, said: "They are not in any way saying that the population trying to raise their heads is racist." He said it should be kept in the museum as part of an effort to "eradicate racism" in the museum.

His son, Sean Mark Redfern, wrote on Facebook that the fallout would be "painted black" on the back of a counter-petition that has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. He told the Guardian: "The locals have to stay quiet for a while and let the media's attention die down and watch it."

Local Conservative Councilor Thomas Congenley said: "The people of Ashbourne must decide Germany or France or the Netherlands." He's not aggressive to stir because "it's not black anyway, it's turkey."

That means the headman is now at the councilor, perhaps to pave the way for the front line. After the council statement, "We hope to have a head figure later today," residents said they hope to avoid putting it in the hands of the council.

The group's supporters who removed the head were hesitant to reveal its whereabouts. Danley said: "It's in a secret place."

Another Tory councilor in the city, Stuart Lees, smiled when asked by phone whether he was moving. Hello? ”And hung up.
