Wow.
Richmond-grown Freeper here.

This is nuts.
The key is that Richmond gets money from tourists, who are there for Civil War input.

Deny that and the money doesn’t come.

Dude you are missing the point of the Confederate statues

They are about reconciliation and coming together under one flag, one nation, as one people.

“With Malice Toward None and Charity(Love) for All”

These men fought each other over ideas and once it was over walked across battlefields to shake each other’s hands and hug it out.

They then worked toward making a better America together

You are a very small and petty person with a certain conceit that enables you to shade the history of what went on and why each side venerated each other.
**************************************************************************
“The monuments are just a symbol of the effort to ensure African Americans stayed, maybe not in physical bondage, but in bondage in political and economically in this country and in this city,” said Stoney,
**************************
Yeah? And the men of that time had inferior compassion and intellect than you?

You are a very stupid man and it gives me no great pleasure to confirm that which you already know

The same people tearing down confederate statues are coming for Christ, abolitionists, and the founding fathers...

Is he a member of the party of Jim Crow, segregation, klansman Robert Byrd and the blackfaced governor of Virginia?

You are very stupid.
Ignorant of the Democrat Party in the South.
And just stupid about this whole subject.

Another affirmative action white-hating political asshole in Richmond (previous mayors included Tim Kaine, a wackjob and Gov. Northam, baby-killing advocate). They sure can pick them down there but the educational level of many of its citizens is about 3rd grade with diapers.

I live in No. Virginia. The older folk and some of their children are intelligent and informed but the late teeners thru millenials are dumb as dog shit. They know nothing about history, are easily led/duped, and are stupid about politics.

This mofo is pathetic and a lair making up sh*t only to further divide along racial lines. The idiot has no phuking clue as to the sheer amount of people who live in VA that have Confederate civil war lineage. What a frakin’ embarrassment.

That was the confederate flags they started flying.

Nonetheless, does he mention these symbols were all put up by his party?

I bet he did not.

Every Confederate monument is a monument to Democrats.

I have a feeling Lavar Stoney didn’t mention that.

The CSA’s famous raider, Mosby, canvassed for the Republican Party after the war. Few Rebel vets were Republicans but some others were not into party politics at all. They were usually resistent to the federal government’s over reach just like most Freepers.
