The statue of Christopher Columbus that Black Lives Matter protesters tore down and threw into Baltimore’s Inner Harbor on July 4th was dedicated by President Ronald Reagan in October 1984 as a monument to the Italian-American community.

How does a, 'President Ronald Reagan' integer make a difference, Reagan was a racist....and as you say, it was a, monument.

Why should you allow your nation to lose it's history, YES the confederates were traitors and do not deserve statues, yes some of your founding fathers were not good men and indeed owned slaves both black and white by the way BUT destroying that history is the wrong way to go.

I agree that destroying history is not the way to go. However I do want to correct one thing. The Confederates were not traitors. Technically every State in the union is it's own sovereign nation who just come together to form these United States. Check out the treaty that ended the revolutionary war. The point here is that it was well within the states rights to leave the union. Even today that's the case from a legal standpoint. We can condemn slavery and at the same time recognize that from a purely legal standpoint the north invaded a series of sovereign nation's.

Actually that is a good point so long as and ONLY so long as they and/or there citizens and soldiers had NOT sworn the oath of allegiance, since many of them had come into the US much later than those states founding this was actually not the case and they HAD sworn that oath which in fact does make them traitors, on a case by case basis some of them were not but once again they broke the Oath there forefather's had made so while that makes those that had not sworn the oath NOT traitors it does make them disrespectful of the oath there ancestors had taken.

That said how many movement's are hiding behind each and every banner in this protest, there is not a single BLM but many other organizations hiding behind it including likely the black Muslims and they have even been attacking statues of Catholic Saints including a native American catholic saint, this is therefor not race but religious attack's.

And now Members of BLM have attacked a statue of Abraham Lincoln and also of Ulysses S Grant arguably the Greatest Union General of the US civil war so do these protestors even have a clue that they are now attacking statues of those that freed the slaves in the first place.

Just who is behind these movement's, what is there true agenda and is it just a coincidence that China is currently having tensions with the US while many of the leaders of this protests are not even moderate socialist but the far more extreme and frankly lunatic out and out communists - or is that Mao'ist's?.

Meanwhile the KKK with there idiot inbred Grand Wizards and there cult hangers on idolize the NAZI's, it's almost as if someone sprayed a large percentage of the US population with an Idiot making spray, hmm I wonder is Monsanto guilty hahaha.

But there are ray's of sunshine and reason.
These young men are two black American twin's that are out and out patriotic to the US, they are also very funny to watch and have some pure brilliant insight into the idiot's and racists that are hiding in the BLM and other movement's.
Meanwhile this is still one of my favourite classic parody's on the KKK.

To my mind Racists regardless of if they are white, black, yellow, red or purple are all sick and twisted bigot's.
I have met both good and bad black people and also good and bad white people, but I don't say that I just say I have met good and bad PEOPLE, we are not animals except in the mind's of atheists and fascists (Whom need to reduce humans to breed's to justify there control and scapegoating tactics).

Yes, but I don't mean at your home, I mean a privately owned parcel wherever. Let the local knuckleheads chip in and buy an empty lot downtown and erect the statue.

This way local govt can wash their hands of it, and have no need to answer to the mob.
