The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 260: The South's "Confederate Monument Problem"?

From the May 9, 2016, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  The South's Confederate monument problem is not going away.  (Washington Post)  (Win)  I have never figured these memorials as a problem and still don't.  It is not our problem, just those of the racists who want all traces of that history erased.  I'm glad we still have them, but for how long, who can tell?

Of course, something to think about is that is the Confederate monuments offend because of slavery, what about monuments to soldiers of the Union who committed all sorts of unspeakable acts on Southern civilians during the war.

Does that mean they are next to go?  You sure can't honor people who did such horrible things to innocent civilians.
