It's crap. Talked to a friend that lives in downtown NOLA today. He said there were marches around Lee Circle.

History is what it is, can't change the facts.

What is it going to change?? Not a dam thing.. It should've been left alone..
History is history. It cannot be erased.. I can't believe someone would allow this..
It's truly mind boggling.

What's worse than removing the statues is the intentional changes to school history books to either not teach anything or to skew the truth that is being forced on our youth.

Jobs not done. Librarys and schools and museums are full of historical accounts and pieces. Someone start a fire, the socialists have returned.

People r stupid. They dont realize the Civil War was about states and individual rights. The North still had slaves. Abraham Lincoln wanted to deport all the black people, yea, its true. Civil War wasnt about slavery. Stupid snowflakes melting the truth.

im far from apathetic. i just dont care about this particular issue. a person cannot put 100% of their time/thought/effort into every issue.

but, im not surprised by the judgement and false assumptions.

OP asked for my thoughts and I gave them to him. I dont need someone telling me which issues I should get behind. or telling me im lazy. you obviously dont know me.

No assumptions here. I'm well aware of what you post. Lazy? Not sure how you came to that conclusion. As far as knowing you, well, it matters not. We would not get along anyway, I assure you.

Ok. Thanks for your response. I can respect that. But I am curious, what if enough people here in Texas from Spanish/Mexican descent started saying all the monumnents to the heros of the Texas Revolution were offensive to them and wanted them removed? Or the SAN Jacinto monument torn down? How would you feel about that? Those things are as much a part of Texas history as the monuments in NOLA are to that cities history and the South's in general.
I'm not trying to debate you just trying to gage at what point would you be bothered by certain groups trying to change history.

Removing statues and flags isn't now nor has it ever been about showing a level of sympathy or feelings for a certain group of people........ Its all about hiding history from future generations...... The REAL question is why would someone, our government, want to hide history about your people rising up against an oppressive
government??????????????? Just something to ponder on..

I find this very different personally. The Texas monuments are about fighting a entirely different country. If they find it offensive they can kindly take their butt back to Spain/Mexico.

I personally don't like the other monuments taken down either, but it's a different can of worms I think since it's about a civil war instead of a war against a foreign nation.

I understand what you're saying, but it doesn't change the fact that Robert E. Lee was a respected General in the greatest conflict this country has ever seen.

Obviously the Texas monuments relate to a very dear and close issue to us native Texans. On a scale greater than Texas, taking down civil war history is worse.

Was a good read and thanks for sharing, I don't agree with the first paragraph that stated Lee was responsible for the war though. Lee wanted to preserve the union but when Virginia succeeded he went with his home state. Much the way I would should Texas ever succeed.

The concept of a monument is to pay tribute to a person, place, or thing. A monument to a Civil War general is in essence hailing them as heros. Many simply don't see it that way. The Civil War was fought for state's rights, but also was fought over slavery. The south wanted to keep the institution of slavery intact. Therefore, the people who fought for the south were in part fighting for slavery.

I don't think this is a matter of erasing history so much as determining which parts of history and what historic figures best represent the general population. NO has a lot of black residents and they certainly aren't that interested in celebrating people that fought to keep their ancestors as slaves. There are of course exceptions, and this is only about generalities.

I grew up in the south and have many ancestors who fought for the Confederacy. Many of my relatives are still butt-hurt over losing it.

The Civil War and the actions/ thoughts that led up to it are an important part of our history and it has been well documented in history books and is still debated today. But, when it comes to monuments, there should be some rights for the locals to decide who should be celebrated and who should not.

That was the case and it should have went to the polls. Now with that being said, if it had went to the polls it would have went down in flames as the city is approaching 62% descendants of slaves! The Mayor did this unilaterally as he has other political aspirations in the future......total political BS!

Can you be so dense?
New Orleans has the demographic makeup of 5th ward Houston
You think over 50% would have voted to keep the statues?

It's New Orleans not The Woodlands

Let it go
Not enough residents of New Orleans are crying about it because they don't care
Ask Landrieu if you can have the statues to put in your backyard (if your HOA will allow that type of thing)

It's New Orleans not The Woodlands



Let it go

Not enough residents of New Orleans are crying about it because they don't care

Youre an idiot. There was no referendum vote to do it was there? Research it and get back to me troll

If you got everyone in NO at the ballot it could of very well gone in favor of removal. In a democracy the majority rule and that would be that. I agree 100 percent on motive of the Mayor. He wants his sisters old seat at a minimum.
