    Take it down. Nobody who did such a thing should have a statue (not even as a reminder as Charles said)

    I guess charles should have word himself better if you focus it as an issue. Saying something like:
    “If we take it down, wouldnt be considered as an act of neglection and whitewashing the issue”

    Then again I think this problems usually are hard to detect and there is more harm to be done trying to fix it than not doing anything at all. Take for example all the ridiculous laws been passed in the name of fixing this type of issues.

    i usually agree with chuck, but on this one, i disagree. i think it’s a disgrace that instead of taking it down and melting it, they put it into storage…why, so some sicko can buy it at an auction someday?? i think that would be similar to neo-nazis buying nazi memorabilia to decorate their house. it perpetuates tolerance of hate.

    i think taking the statue down is important- it symbolizes the end of the lies, and it symbolizes the victims finally getting justice. i think it absolutely had to be taken down.
