Civil War II-- 498: Keep the Confederate Statues in Richmond, But Add Context

From the June 24, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Richmond mayor:  Keep Confederate statues, but add context.  (Virginia)  (I'll Call This a Win)  And Mayor Levar Stoney is Black.  From what he said, he has no love at all for the Confederacy, but at least he proposes to allow the statues along the famous Monument Avenue to remain, just add context markers to them.

I can definitely go along with the mayor on this one.  As if there is anyone now who doesn't know that the Confederacy was fighting to keep slavery.

This is an amazing statement, especially coming from a black person.  We need more like him.

To me it would be a reasonable compromise.  At least our monuments would not be desecrated as they were in (l)ouisville, (n)ew (o)rleans and (o)rlando.

The Chicago Tribune had an article on this story which I will write about in the next few days.

Thanks, Mayor!  --Old Secesh
