Remove the Confederate Memorial from public use.
Move it from Travis Park.
It can be given to a private organization, it can be put in a museum or an archive where we can remember the oppression and hatred that it represent . . .
Or it can be destroyed.
The history that it represents will never be forgotten . . .
But the memorial needs to be retired from public use.
Since 1899, that statue has been a hateful symbol of the brutality of slavery; it memorializes white supremacy and human bondage.
Even today, racists and klansmen continue to worship it . . .
Yet we know it only represents those people who continue to support the racist agenda of white supremacists.
We cannot continue to display hateful symbols in public . . . .
TAKE THE STATUE DOWN!
