Re Letter to the Editor, “ ‘How would you feel if we demand all of your statues … and heritage be removed,’ ” Free Press July 27-29 edition:

In response to Irma Cummings’ letter, I believe it was a good read, although she totally missed the point.

You see, it did happen to us. Black Americans felt our ancestors were robbed of our statues, heritage and country to make us slaves.

The only reason your statues on Monument Avenue mean anything is that they honor men who were hurting us for years and years.
