Denver removes anti-Chinese historical marker
Hendrik Sybrandy

It’s a painful chapter in Denver, Colorado’s history: a race riot that wiped out the city’s Chinatown neighborhood back in 1880. 

Denver never fully came to terms with the tragedy until issuing a formal apology for it earlier this year. 

Now, a historical marker describing the event, which was deemed offensive by many Chinese Americans, has been removed as well.
