A statue of Theodore Roosevelt will be removed from the front of the American Museum of Natural History. The New York Times reporting the decision was finalized on Monday.  Critics say the statue, which shows Roosevelt flanked by a Native American and African man, glorifies colonialism and racism. The statue which stands in front of the museum will be relocated to a yet-to-be-disclosed cultural institution.
