August 15, 2017
While white supremacists worked themselves up into a murderous rage this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, following the announcement of plans to remove Confederate monuments, this has only renewed efforts around the country to get rid of the rest. As reported by NBC, mayors in Lexington, KY; Baltimore, MD and both Jacksonville and Gainesville, FL have already announced plans to move forward with removing rebel symbols in their city.
But this is only the tip of the ice-berg! Below is a list of all the Confederate monuments in the country, pulled from Wikipedia. If you’re white, not saying you should get an early start taking them down, but know that Black and Brown people have more to lose, and check out what’s happening in North Carolina 🙂
