Statute Removals Aren't Closing The Economic Gap, Only Reparations Can Achieve That Goal
The black communities across the USA shouldn't allow the removal of a single Confederate statue that honored the Lost Cause. Why? Because, until reparations to those Descendents of slavery and Jim Crow impacted by the terror-driven, hateful actions of the Ugly Americans that are due are paid. This nation should be forced to honestly confront its past not hide and run for cover from that past. Take away those statutes and you then shield the truth from this generation and coming generations will negatively impact the True Cause, the payment of reparations to all Africans born in the United States. So, bring back the statues of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and all the others who fought for the eternal enslavement of our ancestors before, during, and after the Civil War and that false promised black emancipation. America may think that it can hide those sins with insufficient actions like statute removals. But we who understand the reality of broken promises and 400 plus years of oppression cannot, and will not be fooled, #ReparationsNow once those reparations have been constructed and payments start coming then and only then should we allow those statutes to find their hiding places. You see those statutes were created specifically to harm and disrupt the black communities. They were the embodiment of a complex plan to halt the progress of Black Americans. The gaps that exist today link directly to those statutes and until reparations are paid it is imperative that each of those statutes remain in place.
