The answer has already been provided hasn't it? It needs removed for "public safety" as others targeted by vandals have been.......or was removal for "public safety" not the right course to vandalism?

modern culture has no limit to its destructive goal of removing American History. Anything before the summer of 2020 is old, stupid, racist and out dated - and must go
Black, white, north or south, it is stupidity and ignorance that has no limit to its destructive goals of removing anything it cannot grasp or understand, to include American history.

In that vein, anything stupid, racist or an outdated concept of such - should go.

He continued, "I saw some things when I was here for three hours yesterday. Some very questionable forces. I'm not saying it was them."

In 2018, Eison helped organize the installation of 13 Douglass statues around Rochester to commemorate the 200th birthday of the abolitionist...."
