House to Vote on Removing Confederate Statues From Capitol

"The House is expected about today on a proposal to remove Confederate statues from the capital. It's singles out people who voluntarily served in the Confederacy. As well as three statues of men who defended slavery, segregation and racism. Republican controlled Senate has pushed back on such efforts throughout the capital. There are a dozen statues honoring the likes of Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. Summer depicted in Confederate uniforms. Every state sends two statues of prominent residents to the capital as part of the National Statuary Hall collection. Several states have already been planning to make changes. For example, Arkansas is pulling both of its controversial statues and replacing them with statues of civil rights leader Daisy Bates and singer Johnny

"And Jeb Stuart, president the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis and finally Matthew Fontaine Maury, a somewhat more obscure figure who tried and failed to start Confederate colony in Mexico. Those monuments in many ways, they're part impossible What we call the lost cause the loss caused. What does that mean The lost cause. Quite frankly, is just the Confederate re interpretation of the Civil War. It's created almost immediately after the warrens by Confederate leadership. It was hard for a lot of people, in my estimation to believe that their ancestors died and fought for it ignoble costs 600. Some 1000 people died in the civil War, which is more Americans than died in the second World War, and people had to make sense of that. Believers in the lost cause, who raised money to build monuments in towns and cities across the country were often veterans or their widows and Children. Lost cause ideology portrayed Confederate soldiers as heroes defending statesrights against northern aggression and downplayed slavery's role in causing the war. The first Confederate statue on Monument Avenue wasn't built until 18 90 25 years after the civil War ended, the last one went up in 1929. You've written that the statue serve white supremacy. Sure, And that, by the way, is critical component in the lost cause the idea that African Americans were not only happy slaves, but they were unprepared for freedom. The idea that African Americans were helpless after the civil war. And in that way, it represents a continuation of the ways that whites think about black folks intellectual abilities, not just during slavery. But shortly thereafter, In the years after slavery was abolished in the civil war ended, what became known as Jim Crow laws were passed that made African Americans second class citizens. Their laws that disenfranchise African Americans from the 15th Amendment right to vote. There are laws that restrict their movements. They represent more broadly, the attempt to reassert control over African Americans after the abolition of slavery and these monuments. Are part of that. Oh, absolutely. There just is much apart of Jim Crow as they are of the civil war and slavery. That's when they were built. They'll be in the 20th century. Very few people seem to understand that these monuments were built during during segregation. The miners are just a symbol. Off the effort to ensure after Americans stayed, maybe not in physical bondage, but embodies the political and economically in this country and in the city. Richmond's mayor LeVar Stoney, created a commission in 2017 on the future of Monument Avenue. Those who chose to erect those moments and the figures who are glorified. In those nine minutes, they made some serious attempts to ensure that people who look like me would never hold any political office ever. In Virginia with Charlottesville. I mean, were you surprised at how many people were willing to come out and show their true colors show there? Nazi flags. I think it woke. A lot of people want not just here in the Commonwealth of Virginia, but around the country. There have been protests in Richmond over the future of Monument Avenue. Mayor Stoney says he wants the statue's taken down. It is for me. The greatest example of nostalgia masquerading is his history. It's not real history is well, It's the fake news of their time. Well, he and I just disagree. They're a part of history. William J. Cooper says Removing Confederate monuments is a mistake. He was a professor of history at Louisiana State University for 46 years and has a past president of the Southern Historical Association. One of the things that Miss Landers said that stuck in my mind said there's a difference between remembrance of history and reverence for it. And that these statues are revere ing a false history. It's not a false history. It's not a fault. The manual's put up that by really people who had real beliefs. Maybe we don't like their beliefs. But one of the things that bothers me most is historic is what I call present ism. Judging the past by the presence, thinking that we're the only morrow people that nobody else who could be moral if they didn't think like we think when you hear people saying that these monuments celebrate white supremacy, because that's sort of the common referring when you say celebrate white supremacy. That's not incorrect. I mean, they do celebrate white supremacy, but they won't put up to celebrate white supremacy. Really? They were put up to celebrate the Confederacy. But if the statues do celebrate white supremacy should they be up today? Well should not gonna be up today. Should we go burn Monticello down tomorrow? Certainly Thomas Jefferson believed in white supremacy. You're saying this is a slippery slope. That's a very slippery slope. I would say the difference the critical difference between Washington and Jefferson and Lee and then likely Is that what Washington Jefferson were complicated Individuals on by honest standers thought about ideas in an intolerant, anachronistic way. They also baked into the Constitution, the components that allowed people to dismantle Uh, the slave system. They built a cz much as they destroyed. I cannot say the same thing for the Confederacy. Professor Hayter was appointed by Richmond's mayor to the commission. That's going to make recommendations on what should happen on Monument Avenue. There are 75 million people in the South were the descendants of Confederate soldiers. And who am I to tell them that they cannot celebrate their ancestor in a particular way? But I also have ancestors who were the victims of the slave system. And I see no reason why we can't find a usable way. To tell two stories or tell multiple stories that tell the truth, not a romanticized version of the truth where people are trying to absolve themselves from the deep in humanities of what the Confederacy stood for people who are willing to face down history for what it is. It all its ugliness and all is beauty. Do you believe the statue should be removed? No, I'm a historian and I think that the statues Should stay with A footnote of epic proportions. Essentially, you're suggesting I'm suggesting we do a little bit of historical ju jitsu, right? I'm suggesting we use the scale and grandeur of those monuments against themselves. I think we lack imagination. When we talk about memorials, it's all enough. Let's leave him this way or tear him down as if there's nothing in between that we could do to tell him or enriching story about American history. Historians call it re contextual ization. The addition of signs or markers with information about when and why the statues were built to help people see old monument in a new light. So you'd like to see signs or placards or historical lesson somewhere around here, right? Perhaps even on this sidewalk so that as people approached the statue, you can.

"Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Some of those monuments have been toppled by protesters. Others have been taken down now by the city. All this action as well as violent standoffs between police and protesters has been captured by the camera of Regina Boone. She's a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press, a black newspaper in the city. Her parents started in the 19 nineties and she joins us now. Good morning. Hi. Good morning. Thanks for having me Lulu. It's great to have you from your time in and around Richmond these days. What's the mood? It's intense. It has an exhaustive sort of feel to it. But then there's empowerment. There's exhilaration, then mixed, also with anger mixed with determination, so I can't just say one word. It's a mixed bag of emotions. I can say that it's fully alive and ready. The's monuments coming down. Could you tell me what that signifies in your view? As a person who was raised in a household with my mom and my dad, Raymond Boone and Jean Boone, who started the paper that I work for the Richmond free Press. Monuments have always been a part of our conversations since I was a child, growing up the early part of my life in Richmond that they were symbols of hate and symbols of white supremacy. So I've always looked at these statues as being quite evil on DH always heard in my household that they needed to come down. You have been out documenting these protests seeing this moment? Can you tell me about some of the people that you've been photographing and what you've experienced while you've been doing that Sure. I also just want to be clear that it's not just me photographing for our newspaper. I'm doing it along with my colleague Sandra Sellers who's been at the Richmond free press for more than 20 years, and what we see are people who are angry who are fed up wanting change right now. Seeing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history. And one day later in life, they can see that they were a part of this change. So we're seeing a mixed group of people black white Latino next Asian Americans out on the streets together, and this kind of is a rare scene in Richmond. But I'm meeting people like I met a Richmond public school music teacher, and she had her cello out in front of the Robert E. Lee statue, and she's out there playing this classical music that just springs Chills to your bones, and she has a slide show of words explaining the pain that she has felt as a black woman. And so as we see her as I saw her, and I locked her in with my camera I felt her pain. I could identify with it, Richie. No. Is there a different kind of responsibility? Or is there a different lens that you look at this through? Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us. Other people who are not breathing this story every day. Our narrative is oftentimes controlled by people. Who just don't get it and I get it. Sandra gets it. Our newsroom gets it. This is not a new story for us. People are finally catching up to what my dad was always preaching and always fighting for. You know, we've been saying this all along. It's our history. You return to Richmond from a very impressive career to work at the paper he founded serving the black community. You were gone for 17 years. What is being able to document this mean for you? I mean, it's really personal. You know, some days I'm out there and I'm actually brought to tears because I'm thinking about my father and I'm thinking about what he fought for every day. And I'm thinking how as a child as a teenager, sometimes I didn't fully get his anger. He just wanted a better world for blacks, but for everyone On DH. It breaks my heart that he's not here. But on the other hand, he prepared me for this moment. And I believe there are no coincidences that the timing for me coming home. This was meant to be And he's what keeps me going. He's what keeps so many in Richmond going, I think because they knew his passion. He taught me everything that I know in terms of How to stand strong and how to document these moments and why it's so important to be on the front lines.

It's been five months since the debacle that Wass the Iowa caucuses, that first contest in the Democratic presidential race went horribly wrong, thanks to a faulty smartphone app. But don't write Iowa off so fast.

"Jefferson. Davis would. And Meghan movement. That dot the king pre-trade down the street. You got the Rosa Parks. King fifty-five is in the right place. And I'm Linda Montgomery, Brian. Thank you ever. And I believe that's right too. I mean Montgomery was one of the most prominent slave trading cities in America had more than people in Montgomery. Walling? Third population Montgomery County. The reason why whites so determined. Any talents to abolish slavery and White House of the confederacy is there and Montgomery has prided itself for a long time of being the cradle of the confederacy. We've all of these Jefferson, Dana statues, and Robert E Lee statues and confederate memorial day's a state holiday with the one of the only two states that still don't have Martin Luther King day as a holiday. It's Martin Luther King slash lobby day. Amazing that the descendants of slaves about the sacrifice that their relatives made in being lynched. And those who who did the Lynch and don't feel good about their parents. That's right. Yeah. That's part of the reason why we felt like we have to change this understanding we have a flavor and its legacy. Most people don't have pictures or optics of slavery that discomfort and because of that they minimize that part of our history. And so given that we also had one of the highest lynching rate in the country. And of course. Integration that Dr king parks, and you until many others had to confront, and we also Alabama has one of the highest incarceration rates in the country, which means that we have one of the highest incarceration rates in the world. So we believe that this needs to happen in the American South. And I'm just so thrilled that thousands of people came it's been a real reckoning was just mentioning that the Montgomery advertiser, which was founded in eighteen twenty nine to advertise selling people. Silicate much of the terrorism and violence by legitimating mob, hatred and bigotry and terror. This week. Coverage of lynchings and it admitted that it was he puts it in this terrorism and committee, that's really encouraging. Jessica Lynch were advertise in the papers. Religion down the street leave church. Good Lynch and go back to keep saying that. Right. That's right. And people would come out have celebrations Sadie, deviled eggs and drink lemonade. And you bring your children and lift him up to watch black people, mutilated and burned and devastated in this kind of ritual way. And I just think that'd be a scar on everybody. No, one can be healthy and the community where you celebrate torture and talent. And I just think we have a lot of work to do is to create a consciousness about this history, which as you said shape demographic geography, ever, man. Today is back in civil rights. Ninety five rows bogged dot king Willem, go back to nineteen fifty four because the work of Linda Brown. Is eight before the same Bill kings immigration, and they were they were the vertebrae again was divorced. And if Rosa Parks was the Knicks, meta frog speaking they were the backbone of the movement willing to go back to the mission four thousand legends describe some of that you talk to me. Who was a teacher in the rocks? What happened? Yes. Yes. Well, that's what a lot of people. Don't appreciate is the number of women who were benched. I mean, people were mentioned for these trivial reasons demand with 'cause he wore a white woman man was because he knocked on the front door of the White House. Didn't go to the back. Jesse Thornton was lynched in Laverne Alabama because he didn't call the police officer, Mr. Elizabeth Lawrence a black woman trying to educate children in Birmingham. Alabama had started a small school and she's walking home after teaching her children with a bunch of white kids. Start throwing stones at her. And she did what any responsible adult would do. She told those children don't throw stones at people, and they went home until their parents, if this black woman had scolded, then in the mock form because they thought that with an appropriate, and they lynched her, and then they burned down her home. And then they came after her son who had the flea the Boston. And this. The demographic geography of this nation, the black people in Chicago, and Cleveland, and Detroit and Gary, Indiana, Los Angeles and Oakland went there during the first half of the.

"Is racism exists. We have to be something about it. What's been the public reaction? Well, it has been a concern about these remarks. There has been outrage as you just heard and that is part of the issue as concerning as the public hanging statement is after that she was recorded talking about voter suppression of liberal votes. And her campaign says she was joking. She was talking to students and that was concerning for some. And then she was also shown in a photo at a museum in Mississippi. The Jefferson Davis museum he was confederate president holding a rifle and wearing a confederate hat and her remark was Mississippi history at its best. So I think the combination of these things are concerning and the SP campus saying this is taking Mississippi. Back now forward, but I will also add at issue are the issues, for instance, the tax cuts the trade war, Mississippi is an agricultural state, soybean farmers are hurting. And so this is a concern for the SP camp. And MRs what they're campaigning about the issues that are impacting, Mississippi and says a whole not just the remarks she made even though those are a concern because it is argued it shows a lack of judgment is shows a lack of discretion. And there is concern that this seat is too big for where she's at right now. Well, I guess the question is also, you know, given the proportion given the the demographic breakdown of the state, even if all black voters supported SP his win is still going to require as you said, moderate Republicans, and perhaps more progressives more whites to come out and vote for him as well that will be the case. Now, there was another poll that came out. Why are H elections and it showed that Cindy Hyde? Smith was a head by fifty four percent to Mike Espy with forty four percent. And so it's not that it can't be done and we'll have to see because over the weekend. They had absentee voting. The deadline was noon Saturday, and there were several courthouses with the lines were out the door for people to vote and the absentee ballots. So we have to see what will happen, but it will be a tight race. And it will be one where it will determine how people perceive Cindy Hyde. Smith is she does win and also reflect on Mississippi and can this state put a democrat in office can people look beyond these types of inflammatory remarks and still voter Ed I want to ask you another. The question about the money. We saw over the weekend. I think that the major league baseball had donated a couple thousand dollars to hide Smith campaign. Now, they're asking for her to return, it have you ever seen anything like that? And if so what's happening there in terms of fundraising. No, I really haven't in it so far AT and T Aetna. Amgen Union Pacific think there's about six or seven who have asked for the money back, but they are forging ahead and she said in their latest attempt to help my SP. The liberal media has taken leave of their senses in going after her continually on issues of her pass going to a segregated high school and so forth getting off the topic which are the issues that she supports like the military border security. She supports the wall and opposes the Affordable Care Act does rephrase your as a reporter for Mississippi public broadcasting in. Jackson mississippi..

Two years ago that was stood around fifteen hundred it when they released their new updated list last month it was Seventeen hundred forty it grown even though some memorials demonstrably had been removed taken away and so forth and. What happened was that there's so many memorial so many competitive oils in this country, that when people heard. About the the southern poverty law center's list they began sending in names and pointing things out which Law Center then confirmed instead of list is growing even as memorials are actually physically, being removed in specifically in Charlottesville Virginia which really was ground zero August twelfth of last year has that, city changed Charlottesville Dispute essentially was over to such confederate memorial statues of stonewall Jackson and Robert E Lee in two separate downtown. Parks the names of the parks have been changed to no longer, generals but because we're Virginia state, law the city has been unable to as yet removed. Them in, fact they had draped them with shrouds and they're even forced to remove the shrouds and present the the statues as as they've always. Been so that's tied up in litigation I've not been discharged for myself a lot has been written about the city a year later but as far as the statutory goes they're. Still very much there we're talking with her camps in USA today, which leads to what I think, is an obvious question with the removal of these monuments. And confederates, sites that pay tribute to those confederate leaders during the civil war at what point are we doing that versus removing would has been.
