Mak­ing the case for Con­fed­er­ate stat­ues

USA TODAY US Edition - - NEWS - LET­TERS@USATODAY.COM LET­TERS FACE­BOOK FACE­BOOK.COM/ USATODAYOPINION

The Jim Crow era is a stain on our his­tory. It was a means of push­ing the slav­ery agenda. Take ev­ery Con­fed­er­ate statue down that was erected dur­ing and af­ter the Jim Crow era. Leave the rest stand­ing. If you re­ally care about these stat­ues, you can sup­port putting them in mu­se­ums. Mike Glea­son

Sad day in Amer­ica when his­tor­i­cal stat­ues that have been here for years are be­ing de­stroyed be­cause of the po­lit­i­cally cor­rect left. Gene Washer

This line I saw said it all: There is noth­ing great about two men who com­mit­ted trea­son against the United States to fight to keep the in­sti­tu­tion of slav­ery in­tact.

Racists can com­plain about tear­ing Con­fed­er­ate stat­ues down as much as they want. As soon as they do it, they ex­pose them­selves. Mas­simo Marino

This stain re­moval is the best re­sponse to white su­prem­a­cists all over the coun­try. They achieved the ex­act op­po­site of what they wanted with their demon­stra­tions. Good job, Amer­ica! Daniel Her­nan­dez
