A state legislator introduced a bill to remove Stephens and replace the statue with one of John Lewis.

Just as a thought, I think that John Lewis represents what we as a country should aspire to while Stephens represents the ideals of white supremacy that we need to leave behind. Hopefully GA goes through with this move. Let’s celebrate those who fought for more freedom for more people rather than those who fought for absolute freedom for a select few at the expense of everyone else.

Stephens should not be tarred by one speech the full scope of his political life should count. During a bloody war he worked for peace and strove post war to heals the wounds of conflict.
