Read the truly moving oration by Frederick Douglass for the Freedmen's Monument and I saw this portion in the appendix. It is so saddening that no one cares that the freedman was based on a real person and they specifically made him an "agent in his own deliverance".

The rising man is based on an image of โ€œthe last slave in Missouri taken up under the fugitive-slave law. His name was Archer Alexander.โ€

Unless weโ€™ve suddenly created a time machine how the hell can we change history? Leave the statues alone, they will remind us moving forward about mistakes made in the past!

Itโ€™s beautiful and should not be moved. It is a symbolic display of the end of a dark time, and the promise of a new free future.

The minions(I refuse to call them humans) rioting and tearing down statues don't seek beauty. Just like the BLM movement is a front for sinister minions. They seek chaos and to warp society. God isn't happy with what's occurring in this world.
