The Racism of American Monuments Goes Well Beyond Confederate Statues

EARLIER THIS WEEK, THE SOUTHERN Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released a map of Confederate symbols—including monuments, roads, flags, and school names—on public land across the United States. The map is sprawling, showing Confederate commemorations as far from the South as Washington State and Maine.

It’s growing, too. The map’s first edition, which includes 1,503 such symbols, was released in 2016—about a year after the 2015 Charleston church shooting, during which includes nine black congregants were murdered by a white supremacist. After it was reported that the shooting’s racist perpetrator had posed with the Confederate flag, community discussions around whether or not to continue to publicly display the flag, and other Confederate symbols, became more numerous and more urgent.

    If we allow these cock suckers to destroy our history, they will fill it in, as they are premiere history rewriters, with their own bullshit. This is going past shutting down debate to, whacha talking about Willis?

    This is just a bunch of shit stirrers doing what shit stirrers do. They are stirring the pot.

    Next they’ll be identifying private properties flying the Flag or otherwise not toeing the PC line.

    These idiots don’t realize the two major reasons for commemoration of what happened during the Civil War: 1. To honor those who died fighting for what they believed in, and 2. To remember the awfulness of that war so we won’t repeat it.
    SPLC doesn’t get either.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
