    All over the country statues of historical figures are being attacked as details about their personal lives become known.

    Columbus day is in the process of losing its name because it has become known that Christopher Columbus was something of a slave trader and a racist.

    Bostonians want the name of Faneuil Hall changed because Faneuil at one point in his life owned slaves.

    Martin Luther King's sexual exploits aren't exactly a secret. You do have to be careful about believing urban legend. However it seems there is some foundation for believing that he was a real sexual predator. The question that we're asking here is whether or not that should make a difference to his place in history?

    If that turns out to be true should the name of the holiday be changed? If he did indeed victimize dozens of women as rumor has it...should his statue still be standing down in DC? Or should the me-too movement speak up until it is removed?

    Anyone who did a crime against women needs to be taken down. The METO group should demand it. Like that is going to happen.

    I am sure the Me Too Movement would like to toss his monument in Washington DC into the Potomac over this.

    A bullet in Memphis ended that debate ! He may have been a womanizer, But womanizing was an accepted part of Black Culture in the 60's. He probably banged some white girls too ! A statue for another dead guy big deal!

    Columbus has been dead for hundreds of years..... But still we're punishing him.
