At that rate, can we actually have any statues?
Gen. Lee suddenly upset these people, so they tore him down. If we put something there that doesn't in some way upset these people, meaning they approve of it, isn't that in some way going to be appeasing to them or pandering?

I'm glad it fell/melted.
I hope whatever goes there eventually, does not pander to the types that tore down General Lee. For the record, I am indifferent to General Lee.
It's important that the people behind these types of actions don't feel rewarded for their actions. That would just empower them more.
I think it would be nice if they put up statues of famous Native Americans.

All that from someone that leaves out the context of each of those quotes. How convenient for you.
I didn't leave out any context at all.
I quoted their posts exactly how they were written, in full.
Go ahead, read back through all the posts that I quoted and show me where I left out any "context".

Wow, now the USC horse is being banned because it is named Traveller! People are taking the piss. This is not going to end nicely....its just going to grow and grow. Are we going to band the name Lee, Davis, and Jefferson among others? This is mental.

I do not mind replacing statues, as so long as they can be preserved elsewhere as a part of history. I hate to think of things floating down the memory hole. But what bothers me is the replacement statue was downright hideous. It really was. There are so many beautiful, artistic, and lovely ways - even in modern art - to take the space. The statue they provided looked like a blob. I was actually shocked a moment "This is what they think pregnant women look like?". Ugh.
