So if people in the South say, "No, I don't want that monument in a public park" or "No, I don't want that person's name on my child's school", then all knowledge of the past will be suddenly and irrevocably erased? No one is going to wipe the Confederacy from the history books by taking down a statue or refusing to put one up. There is a difference between remembering a thing and memorializing it.
With respect, since I never said that, I'll decline to respond to this straw man.
If you want to put up a monument to anything from the Confederacy to your beloved pet rock on private property, by all means feel free to do so.
Your gracious acquiescence is greatly appreciated.
I have zero strong feelings about that one way or another. But on public property? There are more stakeholders involved in that than you, and they do get a say on the subject.
Interestingly, I have already gone into this with other stakeholders, but I cannot say how much I appreciate your input.
