Yes. Confederate statues should be taken down from places of prominence. At best, they are statues of a failed rebellion and government. At worst, they are glorifying historical figures who willfully contributed to one of the worst points in our history when people thought fighting for the right to treat people as property, as cattle for the slaughter, was just. And before anyone starts screaming "They're erasing history!" No, they're not. This time in our history should never be erased. To do so is an injustice to those who died in slavery or in the fight to end it. Statues such as these should stand in museums so that future generations can learn about our countries darkest moments so as never to repeat them. In New Orleans, we have Lee Circle, and a statue once stood of Gen. Robert E. Lee, among many other streets and statues of confederate leaders. I'm fairly certain Germany doesn't have statues and streets named for Adolf Hitler.
