Never understood the removal of these. If it offends you, move to another state that doesnt want to display their history. Free country right?
The ongoing eradication of symbolic racial historical artifacts (confederate flag, statues, and monuments) that portrays the history of America as a racist country and slavery, that may stir emotional repression and racism within the Black community be removed because it has a racist connotation. If this is the will of the Black community to the elimination potential racist symbolic of the past than is it racist to present the same symbolic Black Lives Matter to the White, Asian and Hispanic Community? With this be the marching banner of the Black Community, like the Confederate flag to the South. Will the respected Leaders of the Black movement be represented with monuments, with this not stir the same emotional frustration of American racism within the other Ethic communities? Be careful what you wish for. My feeling is, that this moment in time will set the progress of the eliminations of racism on both sides, this is a perfect and wonderful opportunity for America. However, if America leaders, communities, and citizens start this endeavor of change with symbolic Black Lives Matter / African American connotation / Rioting Frustration we are just repeating the wrong history. All parties must now enter this monumental process, not as Black or White or Political Identities but as non-bias Leadership, supportive communities and faith base joining of people to discover the root of the issue, be honest and truth of the facts, alter policy, education, government and identify the social wrong and provide a solution for the future of Equality America.
