These idiots are tearing down statues of lincoln and slave abolitionists too.
It's not about removing "confederate" statues it's about removing WHITE statues. The great erasure of white history marches onward.
lol is this real?
You realize the lincoln statue people want to take down looks like this right:
It isn't BECAUSE its Lincoln its very clearly the depiction that people have issue with....had you looked into this at all?
We can celebrate historical figures without reinforcing ideas of racial superiority my dude. If this was a regal looking black man standing over a kneeling, half naked, white guy in chains giving him blessing to shine his shoe or whatever (wtf is that guy doing down there? is Lincoln standing on the chain?) I'm pretty sure you would understand people having an issue with it. Again, erasing a problematic depiction is not erasing Lincoln OR history.
Why do you think there is an attack on 'white history' tho? More than the statues or thats it? Are you worried about the decapitated Frederick Douglass statue or does it only matter when its a staute of a white guy?
Seem's absolutely insane to be a product of the American educational system and also somehow think 'white history' is under attack...that's basically all we teach bro lol...you live in a bubble? Not like white people would ever white wash history anything like that tho right??? Not like ALL OF EUROPE would superimpose whiteness on every biblical figure for hundreds of years or anything right??
You heard of al-Khwarizmi? Nah? Bet you know who Pythagoras was tho....but somehow the history we learn isn't white enough?
I get it, you're scared/feel threatened so you aren't thinking straight...hope you can get past this.
1. Lol at "problematic". More like realistic
And if you think that's the only statue they want to tear down
that has nothing to do with the confederacy, you're either deceiving yourself, willfully ignorant or stuck in your little bubble. On a side note. Well documented Lincoln thought the differences between the races irreconcilable and wanted to send all the blacks he freed back to Africa. So by that logic all statues of him are "problematic" and must come down. Problematic is just another latest buzzword mindless NPC drones like you have gobbled up from your leftist media overlords. Just another word for "it's white and we must remove it." It's as hilarious as Black Lives Matter retards tearing down Churchill statues in England
Not that i'm a fan of that drunken war criminal but it's still our history.
2. You've touched on it! I don't care as much about statues of Frederick Douglas. He does not represent my people, my culture or my country. Like it or not this country was forged by white European men. Every county in history was forged, fought for, gained, earned etc with the blood sweat and tears of a nation of people fighting other nations for control. I won't apologize for our ancestors being better at it than everyone else. Sorry that our pastime of brutally conquering and occupying other peoples lands interrupted the "native" american's pastime of brutally occupying, killing and taking the lands of their neighboring tribes
3. You're out of your mind if you think that in this day and age white history is not under attack in all of the educational system, all the media, and all the universities. I was in college over 10 years ago and it was horrid. Everything boiled down to white bad everything else good hurr durr. I can't even imagine how bad it is now 12-15 years later.
4. I do feel threatened as would you if you weren't such a self hating delusional leftist. But I assure you I've never been more clear headed in my life. The fact the idea that one would be more familiar with famous historical figures/scientists/philosophers of their own race, culture etc is "problematic" to you... well that really just says it all. You have fun being delusional about what's going on in the world and hating yourself up in Canada if you live there like Tflock. I will be somewhat south of you being jealous of your much more mild summers.

1. There are two, no? Want to point out some more and get me educated up? Happy to be wrong-I didn't put TOO much time into my search but I found this one and an abolutionist and I believe both were in the same city (Madison) but, again, didn't search TOO hard on it so feel free to drop knowledge! NPC? Dude, can you just be you for a bit? You don't have to jump on every alt right everything that ever happens to be good enough bro...regardless I clearly never said anything about Lincoln, I said the depiction is problematic because it is...you just so happen to believe in white superiority so you love the depiction. If you were intellectually honest you would be able to admit that if the roles were reversed you would also find it problematic but you have no interest in truth...only in fortifying the narratives you believe in because you ascribe personal value to external politics (this is stupid btw).
2. Okay. You're racist and only care about white people history. Cool man. Just FYI Frederich Douglas IS your people-you've just been conditioned/brainwashed into thinking he's different cuz he has different melanin levels than you and your eyes are able to perceive it. There is literally no scientific basis for race....you just nurture the divide because 'your people' are on the right side of it. It has nothing to do with justice or right v. wrong-just a child clinging to a toy (thats made of lead and making all yall even more dumb).
3. If you're okay with removing 'other people's' history because it isn't yours why would anyone give a shit about your history? I could give a fuck about race dude-the history I celebrate is humanities accomplishments. Sometimes its gay folks, sometimes its chicks, sometimes its white dudes and sometimes is POC....you're limiting your world and none of us are suffering for it brother-only you. History we were taught white washed. That is a fact. If people trying to round out the historical perspective with the reality of the other side is an 'attack on white history' you don't care about history at all, you're just really attached to the white fairy tales everyone told you when you were a kid. Boo fucking hoo bro
4. If white peoples accomplishments are as great as you say they are you wouldn't feel threatened at all. I love how anyone who challenges these simpleton racist views of yours is a canadian leftist who hates themselves.....I'm not surprised by your perceived mental lucidity tho-those who don't burden themselves with responsible introspection and logical coherence in favor of an emotionally driven narrative often FEEL they're thinking clearly. You really busy out here feeling all kinds of ways huh?
If you step out of your feelings for a minute you might be able to grow out of this brother!
Appreciate the weather wishes but my ass is in CO and it ain't too temperate....better than TX but at least AC is basically a human right down there-CO don't give a fuuuuuck about staying cool.
