"I'm not going to waste my time screaming at a neo-Nazi who's gonna hate me no matter what. Iâm 54 years old, Iâve never thought about those statues a day in my life. I think if you ask most black people, to be honest, they ainât thought a day in their life about those stupid statues.â A statue here and there will not make or break anything. Most of us, no matter what race, don't pay any attention to the statues around your city, especially if you live in a large city. Born and raised in the South and living in small towns in the South I've seen a bunch of confederate flags, worn a couple, and have seen a bunch of Confederate monuments, but I never thought anything about them. Today, I still think nothing about them, they are what they are. We see a bunch of things we ignore. I doubt you could tell me who or what what every street, road and boulevard is named after, other thank MLK BLVD. It seems like with every racial issue like this comes a bunch of angry white liberals there to tell me and others how to feel. Entitled white liberals who feel guilty about past events they were not apart of. Removing a statue or monument is not going to do anything to help close the 26.7% wage gap between white works and black workers. Nor is it going to erase unequal jail and prison sentences for black and white criminals. Yes there are more races than just black and white,but this seems like the oldest and most popular go to racial comparisons in this country. So go out and protest and counter protest things that are not going to make a difference today or tomorrow nor is it going to make a dent in true racial injustices in this country or change anything of importance, other than the landscape of a park.
