These people are ignorant, arrogant, and committed. Hope those of us who value history are as well. This is very upsetting and frustrating.From the article:
Wisconsin Black Student Union President Nalah McWhorter said the BSU wants the complete removal of the Abraham Lincoln statue. The BSU has put forward demands for removal, declaring the statue anti-Black and anti-Native.“I just think he did, you know, some good things … the bad things that he’s done definitely outweighs them,” McWhorter said. “And I do want the 100% removal of the statue. I don’t want it to be moved somewhere or anything like that. I want it removed.”
There's been several stories about calls to change US flag in news as well.To those who still think that the eradication of history is only about the Confederates or some other boogeymen.
I have pointed this out incessantly: Confederate monuments were just step one of 1,000. The cultural Iconoclasts wanted to see how much destruction they could accomplish, and they received a blank check from society.To those who still think that the eradication of history is only about the Confederates or some other boogeymen.
All past tense. Can’t see how this is relevant today.By treating the Blacks in America very poorly as slaves, then badly as 2nd class citizens. Racism is a nasty tree with bitter fruit.
I haven’t. Thanks for sharing itHAve you read about the Red Summer of 1919? Sure that was over 100 years ago, but the Lion is older than that.
Oh come now, the whole Civil War is past tense. Nearly all the monuments in question are paste tense. But we can talk about them but not about racism. When you plant a seed it grows into what ever the seed is and it is pretty silly to say the seed is part tense.All past tense. Can’t see how this is relevant today.
