does remembering involve the honoring of traitors in public places and government buildings?

you are reducing this issue to an either/or. either we display them proudly or we completely forget them. should Germany put up statues of Hitler to remember him?

but the objects in question are not private property but state property to being with.

Also the actions are being demanded by ordinary people, not state officials.

There is no hiding the effects of giving free guns to so called whites once their slavery or indentured service expired, while the people of color are still being denied the ability to buy their own to this day. Why else are police willing to commit suicide to make sure they have felonies? Police are paid to surround and attack them so they can be denied guns, this is because they aren't giving free guns away to the so called whites anymore. It's the same tactic used by employers, they will always place a so called white as the supervisor, even if less qualified. I don't place the blame on men. The blames is on those dastardly wights, they are black as the devil themselves but advocates of this white superiority game played in USA and South Africa.

Yeah, they remove all punctuation when you post threads.

There is nothing wrong with historic monuments, but history belongs in a museum. monuments in public parks and in front of government buildings are more than history, they are an honor. And traitors should not be honored.

Also the monuments were not put up after the war to honor the dead but in the 1960s in response to the civil rights movement. that means those particular monuments that fit that (like the famous grant statue) were made entirely with evil purposes and don't honor anyone. that doubles why they should not be in public places.
