San Francisco flies a questionable flag with its treatment of George Washington and Harvey Milk

On July 23rd San Francisco International Airport opened the first gates at Harvey Milk Terminal 1. The project will be finished in 2023 with a $2.4 billion price tag, paid for by taxpayers. Milk was a pioneering gay rights activist in San Francisco. In 1978 he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He was the first openly gay person to be elected to a public office in California. Milk was assassinated that same year. The new terminal includes not only Milk’s name but also an enormous 380-foot display dedicated to Milk’s life. Meanwhile, in the very same city, San Francisco will spend over $600,000 to paint over a mural depicting the life and times of George Washington The mural contains images that are being deemed as “racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.”

Kim discusses the seeming deification of Harvey Milk, the cost to the public, and the contrast to the treatment of George Washington.
