'The sacred tomb is velforvaret'.
this is the sound of an old saying. However, it is not always the case. It can clearly find in the british town of Warwickshire, where a 118-year-old tombstone for a dog has just been removed, because the dog was named with the so-called 'N-words'.
After pressure from the currents in the international Black Lives Matter movement, the city council have now removed the tombstone from 1902, because they believe that it may be perceived inappropriate and racist.

A spokesman from the city council in Warwickshire, says the following to the Coventry Telegraph:
- We can confirm that the historic tombstone, which was erected in memory of a beloved pet, now is removed. Our position with a view on racism is clear. And although the tombstone dates from a different era, it may be perceived as inappropriate in the day.
In July 2019 demanded of a citizen in the city also, to the tombstone, with the N-word should be removed. He said the following to the local media Coventry Live:
- the N-word to a dog, was supposedly at that time in history is a common name for dogs owned by white british people. A lot of people defending the name, because it was accepted back then. They lack, however, to understand that it was only acceptable for white people. Black people have guaranteed at that time been hurt over the name, as they also are now about to see the N-word immortalized engraved in a tombstone in a public place, explained to the citizen about the gravestone, which was set up in the public park of Coombe Abbey Park.
the Citizen also contacted then on Twitter the police in Coventry, where he described the tombstone as an example of hateful racism. And he asked how he could report the 'tombstone' to be racist.
at the Time, there was not, however, taken action to remove the tombstone, in spite of the notification. But now the dog's tombstone thus removed.
