    You ain’t never been enslaved and nobody here has ever owned a slave so shut up with your poor little black girl junk. You don’t deserve anything.

    Do you not realize that we are all still slaves that's why you have a Social Security number so they can sell you to the highest bidder

    Now its going the other way..people afraid to have an opinion on anything , fear of being labelled, huge guilt and almost brainwashing media aimed at those living now who had nothing to do with slavery because they were never bloody there! Digging up and going back has never worked for anything.... slavery was a disgrace but has nothing to do with the now.

    If you erase enough history it is bound to repeat itself

    Even how you try to topple those statues you will never erase history that there were slaves before. It cant change your color.

    It's like erecting statues of Hitler in Jewish communities. Well done. Bring them all down! Because we don't want to be reminded that we were enslaved, tortured, raped, killed, etc etc

    Anything related with racial discrimination should not represent or reflect the pride of a nation and should be destroyed or placed in a museum as a dark part of human history...it's simple and Clear!..if you want it take it and put it in your home.

    Good. Put them in a museum and we can all learn how the human species can sometimes get treatment of our fellow man SO wrong.

    Why can’t you leave them and celebrate how far things have moved on. Hate always begets hate. 😢😢😢 forgiveness sets you free. The bigger man forgives

    Slavery is a shame for a nation...but the civil war was never about slavery, but instead an understanding of the Constitution, with less central federal governing and more local democracy. So, You can not only look on a statue of general Lee, with hatred over slavery, when he actually stood for local democracy and independency. But sure, I am glad Lee lost for the sake of the slavery.🔍👀🔎
