Confederate Statues Unmoved in Richmond-- Part 3: A List of Dishonored Cities

Continued from July 7, 2017.

Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney's signage approach to Confederate statues could set his city apart from other Southern cities with their treatment of symbols.

In (s)t. (l)ouis the city's decision to remove a Confederate monument prompted scuffles last month between supporters and opponents of the plan. In (n)ew (o)rleans city workers took down three Confederate statues and other one.

In (c)halottesville, Virginia, torch-wielding opponents to the statue removal marched through downtown.  The KKK plans a rally there in July.

But even with signage on the six monuments, many are still not happy.
