Chinese sculptor Lei Yixin is the creator of the monumental tribute to Martin Luther King and many are very unhappy with his finished product. The statue portrays Martin Luther King in a very angry Asian/Mao Tse Tung-like pose and facial expression. Obviously Mr. Yixin is a big fan of Mao Tse Tung and Marxism. He was clearly the wrong choice to create this memorial tribute. The statue does not capture the true essence of Martin Luther King in any way. It's very sad.
