Debates over confederate statues are raging across the country and petitioners in Virginia are taking a stand. A petition has been created to replace a statue of a confederate soldier in Portsmouth with one of Missy Elliot. The petition celebrates Elliot, who was born in the city, as a rapper, dancer and producer and calls out the fact that she never once owned a slave. The petition currently has more than 25,000 signatures with a goal of 35,000.
