As a black male I feel it's important to learn from history. please stop changing colleges names and tearing down confederate statues. it is offensive to me. I want to teach history to my future kids as it is not this fluffy revised version. Yes we

Answers:

Agreed.

There is a difference between remembering history and honoring those who do not deserve to be honored.

Really, young man?

So...you think it's a great idea for memorials to traitors and slave owners be left in place?

Do you also think there should be statues and memorials to Adlph Hitler and the various Nazi leadership in Germany, Poland, France and Russia?

I mean, seriously. First, I doubt your claims, and secondly, those statues should never have been built,. Yes, they tell history, which is why they belong in a museum, not on public property. Treason, the murder of your fellow Americans, and disregard for human rights and dignity should not earn you a statue in a public park.

Is it normal to try to rewrite history? Totally.

No you aren't.

Remember slavery was a choice. So choose to be free.

Taking down a statue doesn't change history. History is in the past, it can't be changed. If we take down a statue today, that becomes a historical event for the future. It can be relevant in showing how we feel at this moment, to future historians looking at this time period. I think what you are really worried about is people making history harder to know, but there are plenty of ways to keep the knowledge of the past alive, but not require all the stuff that was there.

Let's tear down the Roman Coliseum. They weren't very nice to early Christians, feeding them to the lions and all.

I'm a fan of history like you and would prefer that we teach the next generation to understand history, not erase it.

White conservative goes anonymous, pretends to be black before spouting right wing nonsense. Everyone is fooled.

--How you thought this would go, probably.

To honor those who WERE Slaves, the TRUTH needs to told again, and again, and again.
