The two Confederate statutes have stood gallantly in downtown Lexington, Kentucky for over 130 years. They are a testimony for the history of the USA Civil War(1861-1865). History is full of things people like and dislike, but, regardless history has to be respected. Taking down these statures is disrespectful to the history of the USA Civil War. Remember this: blacks in Africa owned slaves for thousands of years and there many places today in Africa where slavery is still practiced and these are in Islamic nations of Africa. See various internet sites for verification. We are not hearing about complaints about this matter from the black activists; only complaints about statutes of long gone Confederates.

You are weak and silly.

Those Statues were of Traitors that tried to destroy the USA.

How does that make them “US Citizens”?

Fir the sake of argument, how about we put up a Statue of Timothy McVeigh or Lee Harvey Oswald?

They were US Citizens and that is certainly US History.
