Shhh
It is on their list but they probably need to re-think any thoughts of doing so.

My money will be on the home team.

If they do take out the Alamo, I'll still remember it.

Followed through to it's illogical conclusion we should prolly shred the Declaration of Independence and hand ourselves back to Britain. Heard it was signed by a bunch of racists and slave owners

Yeah, some smart people took care of the Alexandria Library years ago.

The Coliseum would make a great parking lot.

The Wailing Wall is racist.

Stone Henge was made by some drunk Druids.

You truly must be a miserable human being, move back to California. You don’t belong here in Missouri.

It's way past the civil war names and statues. That I will always feel differently about than many here do. This is now an attack on America. You want to destroy statues of great Americans, or great human beings? That isn't our America. Our America is a place I am willing to lay down my life for. Yeah I'm just one insignificant old man. Yeah, politically neither side gives a crap about me. I'm not willing to give up on us, the people. I honestly feel that's what it's come down to. Maybe, just maybe something else will rise from the ashes. I am going to do my best to help that happens. I know that isn't much, yet it is the best I can do. By the way, those ashes may be real, or just allegorical.

it's not really the statues...if we as a people were more like our ideals, where we treat everyone as equals, those monuments of stone and metal would mean little... many were purposely erected as symbols of power and intimidation

but given our history of one race dominating and oppressing others, with a legal framework for segregation and subjugation only 55 years in the past, and in the decades since the legal end to discrimination showing very little effect on the lives of most blacks and minorities, there's pent up animosity...

fueling this outpouring of rage is the partnership of some whites, who recognize the harm and wrongfulness that systemic racism has caused, especially in this era where ugly acts of racism, which were hidden from view in the past, are now captured on video and shown around the globe ...

the younger generations of Americans may lead this country into a more egalitarian future, whereas the older generations in power will fight to maintain the status quo...

Newsflash: Some people are black. Some are white.
Deal with it.
You want a new statue? Or no statue at all?
Fine.
Do it the right way.

Tear down my statue and you deserve a bat to the back of the head.
Deserve one to the front, too. But I'm feeling kindly tonight.

I'd like examples of systemic racism, Al. If our "system" is inherently racist, how did we elect a black president... twice?

How does our "system" hold anyone down? We have black doctors, lawyers, politicians, business owners, athletes, cops, etc... inner city troubles are the direct result of democrat policies.

Squirrel got a mound of nuts that he didn’t have to work for.
He’s learning that he no longer needs to be self-sufficient.

He won’t survive in the long run though...

Having to hear a bunch of people claim a statue taught them history does make me miserable. And I will likely move out of Misery the first second I can get... you don't actually think I like this state do you?

This is actually true.

There were statues commemorating all the many, many french military victories. But someone tore them down because they were communist and now we don't know about them.

inner city troubles are part of the legacy of segregation, our legalized society that institutionalized systemic racism that was supposedly ended by the Civil Rights Act in the social equality movements in the 1960's...but the efforts at establishing equality have not resulted in a truly equal society....

blacks in general were limited to certain specific and less desirable parts of cities all over the US during the segregation
era and there they remained...society didn't loosen its grip on bigotry overnight...whites who harbored racist beliefs didn't go away: many hardened their hearts and erected statues of intimidation in response to civil rights activism...examples included discriminatory housing practices, the refusal to sell property to blacks and other minorities in many all -white areas...law-suits over this racist practice continued into the 1980-90's

blacks continued to be denied access to many public and private places of employment, despite the laws against discrimination...many lawsuits were filed to force agencies like the LAPD and LAFD, previously all-white institutions...change came slowly and in many cases, by court decree...legislation to open up hiring opportunities included the SCOTUS approving affirmative action mandates that forced institutions to mire minorities...

there was no mass embrace of blacks into white society...so they remained where they were during the days of legalized systemic racism...in places with pervasive poverty, substandard schools, lack of work, substandard healthcare...despite many efforts to change these blackholes of poverty and despair, nothing really changed for a large number of black and brown Americans

here are some numbers that illustrate these persistent inequities:

^^ That's in the past, bud. And ya had to google it... nothing came to mind because none of that is true any more.

Everyone in this country is as free as anyone else (except criminals... they're locked up) to do or be or move or live wherever they want, and if they meet with any resistance there are laws on the books for them to take action.

I say . . . take ALL of the black people who hate white people, and ALL of the white people who hate black people, out to a wide open field somewhere in the midwest. Give them EACH a baseball bat (ram27bat ), and let them bang it out until there is only ONE color remaining, whether it is black or white. This would solve HALF the problem.
