Changing history or removing it is the most offensive thing I can think of - I understand racism because my paternal grandfather faced real discrimination when he came to the US and knew of some who actually were killed but as many things in our past have taught us not knowing history dooms us - we have to stop the PC history and teach real history and not tear down statues and memorials or it will never end. My great great grandfather on my maternal side actually fought for the Union in the Calvary in the Civil War but has he showed he knew after the war the nation had to come together and he helped by finding jobs and being friends with the former enemy because Lincoln told all to put the nation back - he made sure when both died they had their flag on their gravestone like on his was the US flag - we can not get offended by things that are historic its criminal what I see being done by protesters and allowed by politicians
