5 Research Questions: Removing the Confederate Statues

http://www.nola.com/politics/index.ssf/2015/12/confederate_monuments_lee_circ.html

 

1.) In recent years, what factors have caused people to be offended by monuments that have been around for decades?

2.) Why weren’t the confederate statues an issue in the 1960s when the civil right movement was taking place?

3.)Mitch Landrieu stated: “The Confederacy, you see, was on the wrong side of history and humanity.” But whether the history was pretty or not, shouldn’t the city keep the statues up as a memorial of Louisiana history?

4.) If these monuments were taken down, how would the city come up with the money to take down these statues?

5.) Does this set precedent to allow anything anyone claims to be offensive to be removed?
