It is an unprecedented time in America where we are revisiting our past in the hopes of making an impactful change for the future. Statues honoring the confederacy and glorifying slavery have been coming down all across the nation. State, City, and Public grounds are no place to honor a time in history that is hurtful for so many Americans. In order to progress as a country, we have to say goodbye to this painful relic of the past. Removing this statue from my deep red western North Carolinian hometown will be very symbolic. No black child should have to look to a courthouse that is meant to serve all only to see a reminder of a time when America thought he was not worthy of justice or equality. This confederate statue has no home there and it’s time for it to come down.
