Should controversial statues around the country be removed?Slavery is absolutely wicked, but it is the history of the world - back to ancient Egypt when the pyramids were built by slaves. We can not erase it by removing statues, but we have to learn from how destructive it is to human identity. There has been a lot of social deprivation in this country over the last two?hundred years, and this needs to be addressed along with slavery - as it still exists in some of our towns and villages. If we could have more openness this would be a major growth for future generations in our society - to set up meaningful conversations with more tolerance for each others differences, and not revert to violent outbursts and removing statues without thought and more understanding.
