I'd like to see the uniform Jackie Robinson wore in his first MLB game nailed to a wooden stick and burned. It would say so much to future generations about the debate at the time when he broke the color barrier. And though some might perceive the burning as a negation or a criticism, it could just as plausibly be considered a positive compliment to Robinson and what he was able to achieve. Either way, the ensuing discussion would be invaluable. That's the beauty of burning Jackie Robinson's uniform.
That is, as long as we're trying to elevate a Beavis & Butt-Head-level prank to a platform for historical significance and thoughtful analysis. The Semiotics of Nyah-Nyah.
