Richmond's mayor, who is African-American, has already said he's in favor of keeping the monuments but adding historical text around the building of the monuments. Makes sense to me.
I disagree. These people fought to preserve the institution of slavery. They have no place in America.

Your Cultural Revolution will have to go deep to erase everyone from American History who had involvement in prolonging/preserving slavery. So deep that American history would pretty much be unrecognizable.

But I suspect that is the actual intent.

I'm not talking about erasing them from history, I'm simply saying we shouldn't have statues honoring them.

Erasing them from history would be a mistake. People need to always remember that these people fought to preserve the institution of slavery.

And I'll say it again. Britain is building a new fancy burial place for King Richard III and he probably murdered two young boys in cold blood.

At some point you have to allow history to be history. You are currently on a rage of destroying and censoring historical objects because they are not politically correct. Like some modern version of chiseling the bad pharaoh's face off of the obelisk. Its stupid and the future will hate you.

If Rome doesn't bust up the statue of Nero we understand that this does not mean that the inhabitants of Rome today support homicidal mother-killing arsonist dictators...its just a freaking historical object.

You are essentially the sculptural version of book-burners.

Aye. I agree.

I didn't care for the Arthur Ashe monument. There are many other black Virginians that deserved it. Like Joseph Ranger of the Virginia Navy in the Rev. War or William Harvey Carney who was the first African-American awarded the Medal of Honor. Those guys should have been put there rather than Ashe. Just my opinion though.

Agreed. Much better ways to do this.

So, there were apparently around 200 protesters at the Lee Monument last night from which could be heard, " "cops and the Klan go hand in hand". Lots of Einsteins out there last night it seems.
