Name the nation that has monuments to traitors. Name the nation that names public schools, avenues and public parks in honor of terrorists.
Having a hard time? Probably because it doesn’t happen. This proves that the Civil War wasn’t fought over anyone’s freedom. The end of slavery was only the innovation of chains. Monuments go to victors; memorials go to heroes. Confederates were victors over what and heroes to whom? The answer to those questions are found in the current and perpetual state of U.S. race relations.
The recent tearing down and removal of these trophies to insurrection and terror have been met with protests and violence from same generation crying, “Heritage!” with one mouth and denying involvement with slavery with another.
