I realise I am a year late with this response. However, the topic arose, I wrote my thoughts on it, and I have decided I would like to share them with you. This is my response to a collection of six articles on the web talking about the Charlottesville incident last August and what should be done with American confederate monuments. ~
My opinion on the whole confederate monument fiasco which sparked last year is, for the most part, divided. I do believe that part of what they represent is terrible, and they should not glorify parts of America’s past. Thus, they should be removed. However, they should not be completely removed. Though Davidson brought this point up in his article as something rather critical, I agree with the idea: put them in museums! I don’t think they should be destroyed by any means. After all, as several articles point out, whether we like it or not, it is part of America’s past – or the whole world’s.
