It's kind of like falls in the line of good Friday, some of the other young to pour And discretionary holidays. But the legislator, state representative Mike Rico, from Miami Beach he wants, um basically you say it's time to take these off the books in terms of having them still recognized because of the controversy over the Confederacy, the removal Confederate monuments, So is another issue involving the Confederacy that's going to probably pop up in the legislative session. Again. They tried this again. In 2018. It was approved by one Senate committee. But then it got a lot of pushback from people saying, Well, you're just going to race another part of history, so it never got out of the Senate committee will be interesting to see As much as we've talked about the Confederate monuments and the push to you remove them from certain parts. Moved them the other parts of the state of Florida. If this is going to get any traction this year, Yeah, this is again trying to deny history. And on top of that, that it wasn't that the people in the North believe blacks were equal or anything like that. They would have had slaves if they had to pick cotton and everything else.
