Rejected petition Reinstate ‘Nigger’s’ the black labradors headstone owned by RAF wing commander

We want the black labradors head stone reinstated. the headstone has been taken down due to it ‘possibly’ causing offence to black people! This is barbaric, Nigger was a dog owned by RAF wing commander Guy Gibson of RAF SCAMPTON. On top of that he was a dog, how can a dog cause so much offence
