Rioters in Boston defaced the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial to black soldiers in the Civil War as a Black Lives Matter protest moved through the city on Sunday.
The Boston Globe reported: Memorials in three of the citys major parks were hit with graffiti and vandalism Sunday night after tensions mounted between demonstrators and police following a day of mostly peaceful protest marches that wound through Boston.
One of those memorials, the Globe noted, was the monument to the 54th: One of the memorials targeted by vandals was the Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial, which was unveiled 137 years ago Sunday and depicts a pioneering group of Black soldiers marching into battle during the Civil War.

And Republicans are supposed to be the racists?
Let nobody accuse these protesters of intelligence.
Beautiful statue and story!
Ignorance is Strength
Stupid is as stupid does........................
Those people didn’t have the faintest idea what the 54th Mass was or what they did.
Thus exposing the “intellect” behind the race baiting morons who are on the street.
Checkout the photos of the ring of protection around the Lincoln Memorial, and the defacing of the WWII Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Korean War Memorial for another view. This is an insurrection posed on a single event and multiple ultra Left themes, and the Democrats leaders stoking the fires as they sit on their a@@es.
Klantifa strikes again.
Not to mention most of it looks like the crayon scribblings of a two-year-old.
The irony it burns.
Yeah. I’ve never been to D.C. and probably never will but just knowing that those monuments were there and cherished and held sacred was comfort enough. This was unforgivable. No punishment is too bad for these ENEMIES!
Can a FR who knows how to post pics post a a pix of this memorial and add to this posting
It was intentional not born out of stupidity.. this is not a race riot or a civil rights protest.... this is a coordinated socialist attempt at revolution... You have to detox the past beliefs and institutions to build a new society..... this is why churches have been targeted as well....
The socialist progressives are making their play with the help of almost 100k Antifa members placed strategically in US cities.....
This is the way it has happened in almost every country that the radical socialist have taken control....
They have prepared and have been waiting for the cover of a white cop black perp that could be exploited and provide cover....
They had a six month window to go..... with the election looming, the George Floyd incident was the one....
They needed the cover of large protests with crowds that could be manipulated to accomplish their goals. The black community is just a useful tool to them. They couldnt care less about them or George Floyd.
There is big money behind this effort..... the training, coordination, resources, tactics and planning.
Agitators first moved into major and secondary cities first to whip up residents to protest, then secondary groups moved in to hijack the protests and whip up the crowds.
Bricks, incinerary devices and other deadly tools of riots were strategically placed ....
Wow. Just wow.
This is what happens when they don’t teach history.
Fist civil war movie I ever saw was about them.
I’ll 99% of black youths today dont even know one thing about the 54th.
Maybe if their lousy parent(s?) actually really gave a flying F*CK about “black lives” , they would put these real men in front of their kids as an example rather than the latest low-life rapper covered with face tattoos and rainbow hair!
Animals have to mark their territory.
