A Mid-City community meeting was held to discuss the potential removal of Confederate monuments in New Orleans.
"Removing the Confederate statues is tantamount to being like ISIS," said one speaker at the meeting. "Just because we disagree with what these statues represent, we therefore must tear it down instead of creating an actual teachable moment."
It's a conversation that has evoked some strong emotions across the city.
GOP leaders are looking for ways to stop New Orleans from removing the monuments after city commissions have endorsed the plan of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu to take them down.
