Wake up, America. Today’s issue about removing Confederate statues is ridiculous. You cannot erase history because the black race thinks you can. That’s why it’s called history. Accept an apology and move on. If you remove the Confederate battle flag and all the Confederate statues because they want it, then I want everything with Martin Luther King’s name on it moved. Racist, maybe. But so is changing history. It’s as stupid as the person who started this movement.
