Kevin Levin has written an article at The Atlantic about whether or not the Confederate statues on Monument Avenue in Richmond deserve to be torn down.
The discussion has already generated some fascinating comments from The Atlantic readers such as this one:
“Robert E. Lee should have been tried and hung. Same for Jefferson Davis and the rest of the traitorious rat’s nest. Their statues and monuments deserve to be defecated and urinated upon before they are hauled down and broken into unrecognizable bits.”
What should replace the Confederate monuments? Here are a few suggestions:
(2) We could build a monument to the EBT card user considering the fact that African-Americans were over 50 percent of EBT card users in Virginia in 2009. That was before EBT usage doubled under Obama.
(3) We could build a monument to glorify the Black Undertow which terrorized the Richmond Art Walk earlier this summer. See video below.
(4) We could build a monument to the African-American thugs who openly terrorize Whites in Richmond. See video below.
(5) We could build a monument to the Black Undertow criminals who account for 62 percent of inmates in Virginia prisons and who account for 43.6 percent of rape, 81.2 percent of robbery, 53.7 percent of homicide, 50 percent of aggravated assault, 43 percent of burglary, 36 percent of vandalism, 52.4 percent of bribery, 47 percent of drug narcotic arrests, 49 percent of motor vehicle theft, 70 percent of purse snatching, 46 percent of shoplifting, and 48 percent of vagrancy in the Old Dominion.
(6) The J.E.B. Stuart monument could be replaced with monument dedicated to five-time Grammy Award winner “Missy Elliot” of “Da Supa Fly.”
(10) Barbara Johns was the Civil Rights Martyr who campaigned for the integration of Moton High School in Prince Edward County, Virginia in 1951. From 1959 to 1964, Prince Edward County closed its public schools in protest of the Brown decision. The NAACP lawsuit Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County was ultimately one of the five cases that were consolidated in Brown.
In the year 2011, we find that Prince Edward High School failed to make “Adequate Yearly Progress” because of the presence of the Black Undertow in the now integrated high school:
– 96 percent of Whites passed English, but only 82 percent of African-Americans passed English.
– 96 percent of Whites passed Mathematics, but only 82 percent of African-Americans passed Mathematics.
– 100 percent of Whites passed Writing, but 85 percent of African-Americans passed Writing.
– 83 percent of Whites passed History, but 58 percent of African-Americans passed History.
– 96 percent of Whites passed Science, but 77 percent of African-Americans passed Science.
In the now integrated Prince Edward County High School, 82 percent of Whites graduated, but only 59 percent of African-Americans graduated. The African-Americans lag behind Whites in every subject where the two races were tested. Oddly enough, 93 percent of Whites passed Virginia and United States History compared to 61 percent of African-Americans in Prince Edward County where Civil Rights Martyr Barbara Johns heroically made her stand for integration.
The Stonewall Jackson monument could be replaced by a Barbara Johns monument which would immortalize the discredited sociology and the trillions of dollars that have been squandered on integrated public schools in pursuit of the anti-racist El Dorado of racial equality since the Brown decision.
Alternatively, we can gaze upon the Confederate monuments in Richmond and discern that another country and another civilization once existed in Virginia, one that was vastly superior to BRA. We can look upon these monuments and experience what it must have felt like to live among the ruins of Roman Empire in the Dark Ages.
If those monuments stand there long enough, their presence could inspire a Renaissance. Hence, the need by the political class and the cultural nomenklatura to tear them down lest “violent rightwing extremists” (the MSM term for American natives) get notions.
