Calls to ban statues, flags and images of groups that were involved in slavery would have to include the Democrat Party's Donkey and Islam's Crescent, as both of these institutions were involved in the enslavement of Africans.
Beginning in colonial times, approximately 350,000 African slaves were brought to America.
This number grew to nearly 4 million slaves prior to the Civil War.
Slaves were purchased at sharia Muslim slave markets.
Sharia Islam defended the right to own slaves, as its founder, Mohammed, owned slaves.
Beginning in 622 AD, the next 1,400 years saw an estimated 180 million Africans enslaved in sharia Islamic countries.
Only by international pressure did Yemen and Saudi Arabia nominally end slavery in 1962, and as recently as 1980 for Mauritania.
Fundamentalist sharia groups, such as ISIS, have continued unreported slavery.
Ironically, those in Western nations who claim to care about Black lives and want reparations for slavery in the past turn a deaf ear to present-day Black lives being killed and enslaved by sharia groups like Boko Haram in Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Chad, and Mali.
Prior to the Civil War, the United States had two major political parties: Democrats and Whigs.
The Democrat Party was pro-choice, wanting to protect a slave owner's choice to own slaves.
The Whigs were attempting to be a big tent party in order to keep members from joining other parties such as the Free Soil Party and the Know-Nothing Party.
Whigs were originally the party in Britain who opposed the absolute power of the king.
Quakers and Second Great Awakening Revival preachers, such as Charles Finney, were urgent abolitionist voices calling for the end slavery.
Finney stated (Charles G. Finney, Memoirs , NY: A.S. Barnes, 1876, p 185-188; 324):

so tr5hey are banning democrats then? and black slave owners who were involved in the slave trade? and all the nation’s institutes like Harvard, Georgetown etc?
A somewhat related thought:
When BLM says, Slavery was/is evil, arent they, then saying that Mohammad who practiced it and approved of slavery was evil? That sounds like hate speech to me.
American Minute should be declared required reading by the President.
Anti-slavery citizens met in a schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin, February 28, 1854, to form what would become the Republican Party.
On July 6, 1854, the first Republican State Convention was held in Jackson, Michigan.
The new Republican Party was against slavery.
The chief plank of the original Republican Party platform was:
"... to prohibit ... those twin relics of barbarism:
polygamy and SLAVERY."
And grades 1 through 12, college students, as well as adults.
The pyramids were built by slaves. Tear them down!!!!!
I meant the President should declare it required reading. I hope he reads it, too.
Yes! Celebrate America by reading and understanding the good and the bad. Honor the good. Strive to never repeat the bad.
Now they shout black lives matter before shooting you
just like they shout allahu akbar before killing you.
This history needs to be rammed into the thick skulls of the American electorate. Repeated night and day until they get it.
thanks for that- good info to know-
