Re “Davis must go: Commission recommends removing Confederate president’s statue, but not others,” Free Press July 5-7 edition:
The recommendation of Mayor Levar M. Stoney’s Monument Avenue Commission to keep most of the Confederate statues in place was a foregone conclusion.
And the saddest part is our own people — my people — did this deed to their own people.
One day, the statues to white supremacy and a false “Lost Cause” will come down, and my ancestors and their allies will rejoice. But not today.
