    Honest question, not trying to stir up a hornets nest here. What was the point of ripping down the Lincoln statue when he has done more for black people than any other president

    I'm still waiting for the movement to force Yale University to change. Yale was a slave trader and owner.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    I also heard that Seattle pd finally broke up that stay woke area.

    Seems that only after they marched on the goveners 7 million dollar home, she finally cared enough to orfer the police dept to shut it down

    She didn't shut it down when people were being killed.

    Only when her personal property was threatened.

    My only guess is that you have stupid protestors too. That riot mentality catches on quick even if someone has no idea what they are advocating against.

    WhT is he supposed to do? Go blame China for this. They shutdown cities yet allowed people to leave their country and travel the world. You donít see a problem with that?

    The only people who are against the removal of many of those statues are white people who dont like change. Those are many of the same people who dont like the BLM movement either.
    What about The Washington Redskins? The Indians were treated worse. But that name Washington Redskins is still going on in 2020. The Washington Redskins name is more offensive than some statue. Profit is being made from it.

    Where is the movement for that?

You learn about history in class, reading, or like you on TV. Take them down in a year no one will remember.

    The problem is HISTORY is being removed from history books in school as well.

    Look, Iím not for the Confederacy. So quit that argument. My issue is people go too far. Idiots tearing down Ulysses S Grant in SF is ridiculous. How about those morons learn some history before tearing down the winning General of the Civil War?

    And show me one episode of Dukes of Hazzard where racism existed in the show besides some stupid car. Just blotch out the top of the car for christ sakes.

    But we still glorify WASHINGTON REDSKINS?

    How disgusting is that?

    Where is the anger for THAT?

    A question for Dr?

    Why would a Country back in Dec/ January purposely shutdown cities because of a virus and at the same time allow people to travel the World leaving those cities? Yet we donít want to blame China?

    I thought Trump did more for black people than any president?


    Or, it's trump supporters tearing it down! They are afraid of the Lincoln project so they want to get rid of him.

    If your house was on fire, would you do whatever you could to put it out or at least save everything you could? Or would you play golf?

    It's a good article. It shows very good points by both sides. I appreciate the contributors who discuss the aspect of this being a tit for tat by the far right while fully acknowledging the legitimacy of the claim and the slippery slope aspect of it all
