Like all the other articles I have read concerning this sculpture there is no mention of the symbolism behind the sculpture. The sculptor of the statue, James Earle Fraser, stated the intent with these words: "The two figures at [Roosevelt's] side are guides symbolizing the continents of Africa and America, and if you choose may stand for Roosevelt's friendliness to all races." Those pesky details, the ones who wanted it removed should have been told to Piss Off!
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.
