The destruction of the Confederate statues across america can and is met with alot of controversy around this country. I do believe that Racism need to be abolished and every symbol of racism need not to show its face anywhere in a free nation. You can’t call America a free nation if you continue to subjugate the minority population of that nation, You can’t call your nation free when the law tilts in the favor of one group of people over the other group of people. You can’t call your nation a free nation if you have Confederate statue blanketed in every city and town that you visit.
These confederates represent the enslavement and killing and the down right brain washing of another nation. Countless hangings of innocent people that did nothing to the southern man but be born. The unbelievable profit that the southern white’s generated from free laber that these so called black people provided while the people that profited just sat on the porch of the homes andf was paid unheard of amount of money for basically doing nothing. The countless death and rapes of the black woman and new reports that came out lately that the black man was also sexually accosted as well. I can go on and on why these statues need to be taken down.It was a dark area of the united states that hopefully most black and white American’s wish to forget. That is why most if not all of these statues are being taking down.But there are people out there will see this is some kind of ploy to destroy white nationalism.
In my opinion these statues and monuments should not have been put up in the first place. These monuments should have never seen the light of day because these southern soldiers and general lost the civil war. Its like the North and the South both got messages that they won the war when it was the North that won the war. You have more confederate statues up around the United States then you have Union Soldiers that are in the United State.
Statues are only given to the victor of the the war not the loser. But still these statues are every where in every city and county and most of us just walk right past them and don’t realize who or what a certain statue that they are looking at represents. I was in Atlanta and i was in a park and being absorbent that i am i walk up to one of these statue and sure enough there it was a confederate soldier just standing there with the expression of pride in its face. Then i read the message and i walked away.
Sure ever person every nation deserves a culture even the people of the old south. But the old south was bloody and evil to it’s core. What i would say for these statues is that even these men who lived in the south at that time was fighting for something they knew all there lives and could not be blamed for fighting for something like keeping there slaves and keeping there culture because it was all there knew since birth. The normal man should no the difference between right and wrong But that is a little difficult if your parents talked bad about black people . Your friend talked bad about black people , Basically your whole world talked bad about black people that did not know how to read and write because they was not allowed to and at that time if you was around most slaves at that time they probably did not smell so good. I am not giving these southern people a pass on common sense by no means!!!!
What they should do with these statues are to create a confederate museum . I do not believe in destroying no form of history at all even this evil history of our great nation. If you destroy these monuments you will in time repeat history. In fact !! I would not be surprise if that was not the plan in the first place. If you destroy these statues it’s like giving permision to repeat the people in history mistake of enslaving black people.
To destroy history is a mistake and that history are in books for a reason not for us to make the same mistake twice . That is the purpose of recording history. But if you destroy history history will repeat it’s self.
