The Alachua County Commission voted 4-1 to tear down a Confederate Veterans Monument in Gainsville, FL. The county is only about 20% black and the city of Gainsville is only 23% black. Unlike New Orleans, which is majority black, most of the people who voted to tear down the statue are white. They are giving the United Daughters of the Confederacy, which paid for the statue in 1904, 120 days to come up with the funding to remove the statue at their own expense.
It is noteworthy that a white female politician voted to keep the Confederate statues in New Orleans, while three white male “beta-cucks” voted to tear one down in Gainsville.
Only Lee Pinkoson of District 2 voted to let the statue stay.
The New Orleans City Council voted 6 to 1 to tear down four Confederate Veteran Monuments in the city. The New Orleans City Council is 66% black. The city council members who voted to tear down the monuments are Jason Rogers Williams, Susan G. Guidry, LaToya Cantrell, Nadine M. Ramsey, Jared C. Brossett, and James Austin Gray II.
