The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 248: Racist Group Lists Confederate Tributes

From April 21, 2016, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  SPLC study finds 1,500 government-backed tributes to the Confederacy across the U.S..  This would be the Southern Poverty Law Center, a truly racist outfit if there ever was one.  Making the list was admirable, but their reason is to identify items that need to be eliminated according to their racist views.

Not surprising, most Confederate tributes are located in states that made up the former Confederacy, but they have also found ones as far away as California and Massachusetts.

718--  Monuments and statues, with nearly 300 in Georgia, Virginia and Florida.

109--  public schools named for Confederates  (and, that number is dropping quickly)

80--  counties and cities named for Confederates

9--  official Confederate holidays in six states

10--  military bases named for Confederates

To show how racist this group is, they also included an action guide for removal campaigns.
