If somebody broke into your house and killed some family members would you allow someone to erect a stature on your front lawn to honor them. I wouldn’t. An if someone tried, I would tear it down. That’s sort of what I think about statues honoring confederate generals and politicians. They killed members of the family as well as defended an inhuman system of racial exploitation and oppression. Shouldn’t honor them in any way, let alone put up statures for their treason and bloodletting.
