You probably have read or seen something about the pulling down of statutes on the internet, it’s happening every place, either defacing or complete removal by cities governments or communist groups, roaming the parks and plazes of America.
What are they doing this for, have any idea? Short answer complete destruction of American history, the good the bad the interesting.
Here is a longer list of reasons :
As far as I can tell, there are a few reasons, one is the people depicted are older historic figures, who, have some relation to slavery or Empire, either enslavement or the subduing of Indians.
Those are the main reasons, the last reason when the above fails ; if it looks old and white/European and it’s able to be be destroyed ; let’s topple it and google the history later.
Why should this concern you? Why should I care about a statue?
Well let’s make a shortlist:
• Did you ever have a say? What happens to civic and historic art? No. But do you ever!
• Maybe keeping something from the past and learn about, rather delete it like, it’s a post on the internet.
(We need real historians to explain and support what the monument or statue were originally created for, only then can you place your opinions over the top.
• If statues are judged to be removed, you must make them available to view and study. (not hide them, or you must sell them to a trusted group, that will show them.
