'As soon as I arrived in the Indies, on the first Island which I found, I took some of the natives by force in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts.' Stace_RNresists Honestly, we have numerous statues in every city USA. We see them; but, for the most part haven't talked about the iconography and related history. We're seeing a 'hundredth monkey effect.' Collectively, we are enacting change and will need to see where we go.
THAT'S MY TOWN! decolonizebaltimore No spaghetti for them. 'They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance...

The fact that we have historical sites that depict & remind us of the flaws & dark periods in US history is a tribute to our open society, not a negative. We face it, remember it, learn from it & don't try to hide or erase it. The hardest they worked in years.

Trump Flouts Virus Rules, Warns Of 'New Far-Left Fascism' In Speech Ahead Of July 4thOn the eve of Independence Day, President Trump delivered a speech at Mount Rushmore National Memorial condemning protesters who want Confederate statues and monuments removed, as well as what he called a 'new far-left fascism.' Saying 'far left fascism' is like saying 'boiling hot ice cream.' that quote gave me whiplash. Is someone gonna tell him that fascism is right-wing by definition?
