The Civil War ended 155 years ago, but for many people in the South and some elsewhere, they still revel in the Confederate heritage.
This is so despite the fact that the Confederate heritage is one of treason and promotion of the degradation that African American slavery represented.
It is one thing to teach about the history of the Confederate heritage, and it is fine to have public displays of Confederate heritage in museums
But in 2020, it is not acceptable to have such monuments and statues in public squares and on government property!
Whether one likes it or not, displaying such statues and monuments is promotion and endorsement of white supremacy!
The time has passed for such displays, and Donald Trump, a New Yorker his whole life, is ironically bitterly opposing any renaming of Confederate military bases, when a large percentage of the military in 2020 are non whites!
It is long overdue to take Confederate names off streets and schools, and recognize the multi ethnic and multi racial nature of 2020 America!
