Fuck Confederate statues. All these people saying statues are good for history; no one learns history from statues. Statues are monuments of greatness. Seceding from the union because they wanted to own other humans is not greatness.— Just Some Guy | Black Lives Matter (@Home_Halfway) June 27, 2020
The Confederacy is, by definition, anti-USA.
Traitors. Say it with me. Confederates were traitors. They executed prisoners. They put free black men back in chains. They were dedicated to preserving the cause of keeping men and women in chains. We don't honor them. We spit on them. Enough of this ridiculous idolatry. https://t.co/rNxhWEPCAD— Fred Wellman (@FPWellman) June 10, 2020
