    Why not just tear them down anyways????? Keeping them up is glorifying an era where hundreds of people where murdered/hurt

    Nahhhhh eff that. Take em all down, re teach the truth instead of "history". Tell kids that the colonist raped, slaughtered, and even hunted and ate the native Americans in the winter. Tell them how getting whipped and hung was the Easy part of slavery. Tell them there were worse things like knowing masta is fucking your 9 year old daughter or wife , how some were castrated to keep from wanting to use energy for sex instead of work. Tell them how the Mexicans were thrown in ditches by white people then set on fire for amuse. That's HISTORY and not His story.

    If the media would stop covering this, people would forget about it pretty quick.

    How about take them down put them in a museum. Some of these statues are of memorable people and some of ones that we shouldn't remember however it is still history. And once taken down put up new ones of our presidents or American noble prize winners. Just throwing it out there.

    History is there to remind us of how far we've came from the past. The past will never represent the future so quit thinking it does.

    Pretty sure without Chiang Kai Shek, Taiwan wouldn't exist. Taiwan would have remained part of China. And Chiang Kai Shek did NOT want to rejoin Communist China. He wanted Taiwan's government, rooted in the principles of Democracy, to retake China. He hated the Communists and dreamt of eradicating them. But he is a pragmatic figure. While he is a follower and close ally of Sun Yat-Sen, founder of China's short lived Democratic government and founding father of Taiwan's current government, his turn at governing after Sun was autocratic...but fact of the matter is, Taiwan's Democracy would not have survived if it wasn't for him. This video is a gross simplification of China and Taiwan's complicated history and relationship.

    History belongs in museums and libraries. Not glorified in town hall plazas and court house steps, not when that history represents oppression and genocide
