The SCV Sees Flag Attack As a "Nightmare"-- Part 3

Commander Barrow also said that he had not seen any protests at the convention, something I was sure there would be.

Following the murders, some Richmond Confederate monuments were defaced and there was a call to take the Confederate statues down which are along Richmond's famed Monument Avenue.

Dwight Jones, Richmond's mayor, is black and disagrees with the removal and calls for more statues recognizing other heroes.  He points out that there already is one recognizing pioneering black tennis player Arthur Ashe.

Last month, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe called to remove the SCV license plates which feature the Confederate flag which is part of the group's logo.
