We should educate on the evil deeds of these men, not glorify them with statues.

Oxford can't expect to diversify its student intake or to have a credible EDI agenda with this very visible reminder of part of its colonial heritage and funding origins. The statue should be in a museum with a plaque to detail what Rhodes did for the College as a benefactor and his colonial past. As it stands, I can see that this monument must represent an insult to many BAME students or staff members and to many others too. There should be no place for memorialising such a figure in this way in 2020, regardless of their generosity to the college.

This statue is still glorifying colonial rule and somewhat justifying the cruel past.

The symbols of white supremacy must be taken away from the public space where they contribute to a climate of oppression.
