North Carolina lawmakers need to have this discussion, and they need to have it without the current, ridiculous law that makes the state seem resistant to change and disinterested in the views of minority residents. "Each of us deserves a voice in determining how to address the questions raised by the statues of Robert E. Lee and others, and confront the darker moments in our nation's history".
The removal of confederate statues nationwide continues to take place.
Signer said his personal pivot moment came during a memorial service for Heather Heyer, 32, who was killed when a man attending the rally allegedly plowed a auto into a group of counterprotesters. A few months ago, the park was renamed Emancipation Park.
For many Australians, the surprise lies not in the outrage at the statue's removal, but at the existence of the monument at all.
Richmond, like so many cities across the South, has been grappling with the future of its monuments for years - forced to consider whether they should remain part of the city's landscape or be taken down to ensure those who fought to preserve slavery are not glorified.
"A slave whipping post isn't something we want up, just out in public without interpretation", said W. Fitzhugh Brundage, American History professor at the University of North Carolina. "We feel strongly that Gen".
The statue of Lee in Charlottesville, Va., was the focus of the violent protest that turned deadly on August 12. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, their likenesses, etched into a mountainside, continued to overlook a Georgia state park.
TC: How do you think the decision to remove the statue in this way reflects President Price's leadership style? And now that the struggle over the Charlottesville monument has ended in a tragic death, perhaps we will see the Robert E. Lee statue as more a part of an ongoing political dispute than as a historic relic that teaches us about the ideas of the people who put it up in the 1920s.
Can they really tell black people who interpret it differently - who look at that statue, erected in the same period as "The Birth of a Nation" and the second Ku Klux Klan, and see a public display of contempt for their dignity and rights - that their reaction is absurd?
A rational person looking at the status of blacks in the United States would note the great strides made since the Civil Rights Movement, starting with the integration of the Armed Forces by President Truman.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans, a group that advocates the preservation of these monuments, says it only wants to protect the heritage and commemorate the valour of ancestors.
President Donald Trump argued after the violence at the white supremacist rally - which led to the death of counterprotester Heather Heyer - that taking down the monuments is akin to uprooting USA history.
Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, who represents Gov. Larry Hogan on the trust, House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Charles L. Edson, who represents the Maryland Historical Trust, voted by email to remove the statue. Are we going to take down statues to George Washington? Twenty-two people in the Ezekiel family - ages 20 to 90 - from across the country signed the letter calling for the Confederate Memorial's removal from Arlington. He also noted that other commissioners, who are white, generally defend keeping the monument where it is. Jefferson wanted to move our country forward; Lee became a hero of the "lost cause" version of Civil War history, which glorified our country's dark ages at a time when we needed light.
Lee, the great-great-grandson of the general also issued a statement along with Tracy Lee Crittenberger, his sister, condemning the "hateful words and violent actions of white supremacists, the KKK or neo-Nazis".
