New Orleans is severing its ties to the racist Confederate history that lingers in the city by removing several Confederate statues. Early Monday morning, city workers were to begin to take down the statues while it was still dark to avoid clashing with those wanting to preserve the [white-washing.]
Yeah you right! Good on ya, New Orleans.
In response to a LOT of comments I saw when the mayor went live to talk about this:
1.) Yes confederates were traitors. (What are you, f’ing stupid?) They were literally waging war against the US government. How much more of a perfect definition of treason do you want?
2.) No one is erasing history. They are just refusing to elevate a totally twisted and slanted version of it above the truth anymore.
3.) You want to boycott New Orleans because of this? Great! If that’s how you feel nobody wants your backwards, hateful, fucktard self on their streets anyways. Please, stay where you are. No need to slither out from under your rock, trash!
And finally, wooohoooo!!
