Do you know the answers or are you simply flailing around trying to find something to complain about? Did you see the statues of buffalo soldiers?
How much have you donated to erect a statue of a black civil war soldier in your local park?
Your method of debate is flawed.
You have not addressed the issue of the OP, you have, instead, attempted to discredit the supposition by submitting references, which merely appear to
contradict my premise,
But which, in fact, are completely unrelated.
As an example, your presentation of the Buffalo Soldiers monument as a refutation of the assertion that there is a paucity black and brown heroes
represented as Civil war monuments, and that omission might be symptomatic of the motivations embraced by those seeking the removal of statues
representing white civil war figures.
As you know, or should know, the Buffalo Soldiers did not even exist until after the civil war.
I have not contributed to the erection of any statue or monument commemorating the civil war in my town, it is true.
But then, I live in California, which was a Free State during the war, but was a bit too far west to have had much involvement.
Nevertheless, although I have not personally advocated for the removal of any memorials, I can empathize with those who find such monuments
