Hate symbols

Members of Mayor de Blasio's controversial statue commission are hoping the public can help them decide which of the city's monuments qualify as "symbols of hate."
He'll take a position on each controversial symbol or monument by the end of the year.

Does Ulysses S. Grant qualify as a hate symbol? Does Christopher Columbus? Questions continue to mount as the Mayor works to refine the criteria of his new hate symbol review.
