Anything put on social media is put there to cause controversy and stir up hate . Point made when it was posted about a Klan meeting in Amarillo.This should not have been given the attention it was given We are a peaceful City lets keep it that way

Come on Amarillo, let's do the right thing and remove this hateful statue safely and respectfully to a appropriate location before it gets destroyed or starts a fight. Maybe a museum? Maybe we could auction it off for charity? It should not be destroyed but it should be relocated away from any public venue.

The f cking statues have been around for many years, what the f ck is really going on? This is what happens when you let too many of the wrong people into the country. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Maybe people should stop with all this garbage about being 'offended' by the confederacy, those who served, the flag...would it not serve a better purpose to say those symbols are reminders of a difficult time in our history. You cannot wipe out everything that could ever offend anyone and pretend it didn't happen. Use your time to create a better future.
