Tear it down!!! It huuuuurts my wittle feelings.

What next.  What issue will next offend.  Interstate highways?   They were started by a war monger.  How about Mt Rushmore.  Grand Canyon is a big crack, has to remind someone of a sexist construction worker making  catcalls

If LHC Bill Snyder had been hired at KU years ago, we'd have a national championship in football and a couple more BCS bowls. - beems

I don't know why we have statues for traitors in the first place, not even accounting for the part where they wanted to subjugate blacks as slaves

It makes more sense when you realize most of these were put up in racist states around the beginning of the civil rights movement

Baltimore quickly removed 4 confederate monuments in the middle of the night. Good idea.

I think it's important to note that some of these confederate monuments do date back over a century and some are memorials (e.g., the Durham statue). The rest should be melted down and sent to China. This blanket approach of if its theme is the "confederate civil war" let's protest it and get rid of it is weird and obsessively hateful.

IIRC it's a confederate women memorial.

Suggestion for the next historical pieces to be protested and removed:
Road-side monuments documenting the massacre of Native Americans

Instead of tearing them down, they should just switch the plaques on all of them to say "Total Loser." Not as expensive and historically accurate.

Sometimes it's an all encompassing "Confederate heros day"

Just happens to be the same as mlk day, weird coincidence

Yeah. There was a time when the rural school district I attended didn't even recognize MLK day as a holiday.
