Naming for and/or establishing monuments to members of the confederacy was largely done to send a clear message to People of Color: we may have lost the war, but we still hold power. Cross us, step out of line, the established order, and you will pay. And POC have continued to pay in every Currency known to man after freedom was begrudgingly granted with theprice including physical, emotional, material, &. psychological abuse; both literal and figurative death, by both passive and active assailants who are not held accountable for their actions. Time to send a different message.
