    Confederate street names stir debate in ... New York City?

    Ah mean if you EVER find yourself at an intersection of Martin Luther King and some other dead black martyr, you best get your ass moving back the way it came!

    I find it really interesting that there are a whole bunch of people who are adamant about keeping memorials to people who lost a war?

    Didn't Trump say that he only likes winners?

    Still doesn't change the fact that Confederate memorials and statues are actually celebrating the people who lost the Civil War.

    Actually, they are celebrating significant moments in American History! Whatever you think of the war, 3/4 million Americans were killed fighting it. As to the Confederate Generals, the Confederacy is another significant time in history---- you simply cannot wish it away. And the Generals who fought in it, they were around long before the war, had there not ever been a Civil War, they might have served and done many noble things. All this is about is political correctness trying to erase our history. The history of slaves in the South, a history that was ironically championed largely by the Democratic Party that pretends today to be the savior of the Blacks!

    What the Left fails to be able to do is keep separate that you can acknowledge your past, pay tribute to the Generals who fought in the largest war in American history for what they thought was right, and honor the memory of all those fallen boys without necessarily embracing slavery. Only the PC police would have us believe that acknowledging great leaders and moments in our history as a fascinating time and study means that you also embrace the slavery that was the trigger of it.

    Slavery wasn't so much a racism against blacks as much as a pure business decision; during that time, Africans were seen as a cheap resource that was invaluable to the success and profits to the cotton industry, a matter that Geo. Washington tried to address during the talks leading up to the founding of the country, but it was such a hot issue then that it threatened to fracture the states, and it was convenient for those who needed slaves to think of them as an inferior species, therefore not entitled to the same rights as other men.

    That was a long time ago, but today's efforts to now hide from the past rather than keep it before us and study it closely and remember it is a dangerous thing, for as Santayana once wrote: Those who fail to remember their past are condemned to repeat it.
