Comedian filmmakers try to understand those fighting to keep Confederate statues

"Those are statues that never should’ve been erected. The South lost." Comedian and filmmaker CJ Hunt embedded himself with Neo-Confederates to understand those fighting to preserve the monuments and troubled history.

    "The people who cling to white supremacy"? You mean the people who blame literally everything on a non existent boogeyman?

    They may have found people like that, but this video makes it sound like everyone that enjoys Civil War history is a racist. Well I love Civil War History. I got to visit Gettysburg once. There is a lot of history there. General Robert E Lee didn't even want statues of himself erected. From what I can see in this country very little American history is being taught. And we are slowly segregating again, but this time minorities have been convinced that they are the ones that want to be segregated.

    Slavery is wrong but nobody ever talks about the white slaves my family didn't have any slaves but we will still be prosecuted for them why can't we just all coexist and be happy slavery was over a hundred years ago

    Folks who cling to anger and hatred to justify their lack of accomplishment are not interested in any opinion that doesn't reinforce that victim mentality.

    Although, the confederate south loss. General Grant didn't FINISH THE JOB !! We know General Grant went to West Point along with generals from the south. Enough, wasn't done to discourage the " mindset," Of white supremacy.. fast forward to 45...Once again Enough wasn't done to discourage white supremacy. I point to January 6,2021

    It cost $1,000,000 to remove three monuments in New Orleans.

    I love how ppl act like the north isn't full of racists too. Like no one in the north ever owned one single slave.

    You can't learn from history by deleting it

    A Georgian senator pointed out that if America wanted to get rid of slavery then all they had to do was amend the Constitution. Which was finally done after fighting a bloody and costly war. Maryland approved the amendment in the 20th century

    I don't know who needs to hear this but the confederacy only lasted 5 years. Look it up🤷🏾‍♀️. I don't see how it can be such a HUGE part of southern "heritage" when it fell apart in the same time it takes a 9th grader to make it through highschool. Just admit you are racist and don't want anyone but people who look like you to live a peaceful happy life. The heritage BS fools NO ONE

    Not one mention of the Southern White Democrats who owned those slaves, who were against freeing them, and who fought like hell to keep segregation and Jim Crowe laws alive. Now the democrats have changed the narrative and ignorant people do as they are told to keep racism alive and well in a country that has made progress... Stop being used and think for yourselves instead of doing what those corrupt white politicians are telling you to do...
