Skull A Racist Message Buried for Thousands of Years in the Future

The Atlantic 24 October 2018

It's hard to predict how many years, decades, or centuries the crypt will actually last: Oglethorpe may have no legal obligation to maintain it, even though a large metal plaque outside implores future generations to keep it shut. Should it (and we) actually survive until 8113, maybe it will be dangerous in how it influences a future people who, one could hope, have shed constructs like race. [History professor at Georgia State University Perimeter College Paul] Hudson, for his part, retains optimism about the ultimate outcome thousands of years hence. "That whole concept of 'bigoted' might disappear by then," he says. "People might just not understand it at all."
This article was one of the most fascinating articles I've read all year.
