Imagine if George Washington had focused on defending the Union Jack 🇬🇧 and protecting statues of King George III instead of, you know, leading a revolution to make things better for the people...

By that logic... since Lincoln was against equality between blacks and whites. Let's get rid of him too America isn't a perfect country but that doesn't mean we have to destroy memory of our imperfect past. We should recognize what's good about America and those that came before us while recognizing that there's more to do, and always will. Just like within ourselves, we are imperfect and always have more to develop.

Agree you do not have to destroy the memory of our imperfect pst but we can correct it and remove this fantasy washed down “revisionist” version that highlights the good and skims over or never mentions the negative.

King George III was in the right as well. Divine Right of Kings and all that.

I don't think we need to remove all statues, but the ones of Confederates don't really have any place in our country. They aren't Americans by definition and stood by ideals that don't fit American values

Let’s also remove statues of FDR because he pushed all Japanese people into prison camps. Thanks Democrats. Also JFK was a womanizer and LBJ used to expose himself to people and said his driver was property. Would anyone be left to have a statue of besides the organizers of the woke movement?* *until their issues are unearthed

A lot of people on this app, but not the majority, have felt very strongly that we should dismantle likenesses of GW because he owned slaves in the 18th century. These people are trying this opinion into their iPhones. Do you think posterity will look kindly on our ubiquitous use of cheap products built with essentially child slave labor? Would it be fair of them to?
