The meaning behind removing Confederate monuments

Most Confederate monuments were built decades after the Civil War, and serve as an "oppressive reminder of our past." An African American studies professor explains.

    I live in Alabama and I am from a biracial family. I know too well what these statues represent. But I also know that they are part of a story that needs to be shared. We don't get to today without looking back and understanding. I am not an advocate of them. I am a woman who has seen the Kkk rally at my junior high school because a white guy got upset about his girlfriend leaving for a black guy. I rode up on a rally in downtown Birmingham when I was a little girl, and they wouldn't let us leave. I have seen hate, and love. Let me tell you this, that thin line between love and hate?? Its real.

    Sounds like a bunch of petty victimized peasants, sorry to burst your bubble but you don’t get everything you want simply because something might hurt your feelings, bunch of adult cry babies....tearing down those statues wont fix your miserable little lives, change history or grow your bank account in any way!!
