Removing Robert E. Lee's statue
"Has been reporting on the debate over Confederate monuments for nearly three years. Today. That debate is is charged as arguments to defund American police departments. When we began our research in 2017 we were surprised to learn why, and when many of the monuments were built, we decided to go to New Orleans to talk with the mayor at the time, Mitch Landrieu about his then controversial decision to remove four Confederate monuments. What we saw looked like a military operation. When the city of New Orleans removed a giant statue, P G T boat regard a Confederate general who ordered the first shots fired in the civil war. They did it in the dead of night. Construction crews were bulletproof helmets and vests on police snipers were stationed on rooftops nearby. Mitch Landrieu says it was impossible to find a local company that would take the job when we put the thing out to bid, the one contractor that God showed up at his life threatening at his car bombs His car is actually the car was actually firebombed. Death threats would come in. And so I couldn't find a grain. I could not find a damn crane in New Orleans and I couldn't find a crane in Louisiana. Mayor Landrieu eventually found a contractor from out of state and finally, after years of legal wrangling took down four Confederate monuments. Last one one removed removed was was a a 16.5 16.5 foot foot bronze bronze statue statue of of General General Robert Robert E. E. Lee. Lee. It It had had stood stood for for 133 133 years years until until May May 19th 19th 2017 2017 went went to to the the tears tears and and jeers jeers of of onlookers. onlookers. The The Confederacy Confederacy is is most most celebrated celebrated military military hero hero was was hoisted hoisted off. off. It's It's 68 68 foot pedestal. The city. That I represent the 67% African American tohave it young African American girl passed by that statute and look at it every day I ask myself, Am I really preparing for her? A really good future? Is she feeling like she's getting lifted up? By the government, or is she being put down? I mean, I think the answer's pretty clear. Really. What these monuments Where were a lie? A lie in what sense? Well, in the sense that that Robert E. Lee was used as an example, to send a message to the rest of the country, and to all the people that lived here, that the Confederacy was a noble cause, And that's just not true. This is incredible. Mayor Landrieu agreed to show us what's become of generals Lee and Beauregard. They've been gathering dust for more than a year. That's the first time I've seen in there. Is that right? Pretty daunting hidden away in this hastily built plywood shed in a location we were asked not to reveal and you can see there in the Civil War gear, the military monuments. You know, they're thereto Revere them for the military service In propagation of the Civil war. You look at these monuments. You would never know. The Confederacy lost. Well, that was the whole point. The whole point was to convince people that actually, they won. And even in that defeat, it was a noble cause. And, of course, the whole point of this is is to confront history. I mean, this wasn't an L s u Alabama football game. Where did matter who won loss? And you just got bragging rights? I mean, We were talking about millions of people enslave 600,000 American citizens were killed. They were trying to destroy the country. The statue's final fate is unclear, but they're unlikely to ever be displayed again on public property in the city of New Orleans. I really did want to make a definitive statement. As a white man from the south as the mayor of a major American city of the dawning of the 21st century, that it's not unclear anymore about what the civil War was about, and who won And what the values are that we should really revere after

His body, which was swollen and brutally beaten. raised out of the Tallahassee River! His mother demanded. That the casket be open, so people could see what they had done to. This little boy, not a man to a little boy. The place where mega adverse was shot in his driveway. This is a momentous time that a Republican governor think about that a Republican governor. Signed the paper to take that confederate emblem off the flag. That's a big deal. You mentioned your surprised that this being enacted by Republican legislators signed by a Republican governor. Have you been surprised by similar gestures ELSEWHERE FOR EXAMPLE IN NASCAR? Saying that the the stars and bars flag would no longer be welcome at race meetings. You know. The past month has surprised me I. Mean I've never seen anything like this in such short of time where every day. Okay, we're no longer going to fly. This flag and NASCAR JUNE TNT is now going to be a holiday where removing these confederate statues. The civil unrest has caused so many people to rethink where we are in this country. I just wonder all of a people. People are reading books about implicit bias and anti racism and things are changing. But how do we change? ATTITUDES TAKEN DOWN? Statues were getting rid of flags. But how do we get to the root cause of structural, insist Dimic racism where when an african-american walks into a bank to get a small business loan where he is not, or she is not discriminated against because of wraith right? A lot of companies donating money to social justice organizations in that is great because the work needs to be done. Are those same companies going to invest in low income neighborhoods in the infrastructure where people will have jobs? So yes, it's been surprised that all these things are happening, but I.

"Have a very different view of what the Confederacy means. Because to me, that's the rebel flag that was used to serve justify the states. Right. People say it's about Statesrights. Yes, it wass and one of the state's rights that was being asserted was the right to Enslave people and beat them and raped them and sell their Children. So he and I had a very spirited debate on that wall, finding our names about why we each thought we were right again. I'm not saying that this person would have ever resorted to the sort of slur or name calling that's so common now on social media. But he made his point and I certainly made mine and we made it while knowing who the other person was, and looking each other in the eye on being a part of every single day and being a part of the same study group. He's a federal judge now and we're friendly. We will probably never ever vote for the same people. But I know that we can look each other in the eye and make our points And at the end of the day, that's what this country is. You know, we're never all going to agree. But unless you can get from behind your computer and stop with your name calling and the slurs and the nastiness if you've got a point to make make it like a grown up engaged like a grown up and we can engage like grown ups. You know, some of these Arguments are just not worth it. Sometimes this is not worth it. Let me put it another way. Not all viewpoints are valid. Correct. I'm not going to debate whether the Earth is flat correctable. I promise. I'm not gonna debate some of the other insanity out there just because in the the false interests of fairness now they're not two sides to everything. No, there are not two sides to everything. And so you know, I just think that we've got to be more judicious about how and with whom? And when we engage No, They're not two sides to everything. They're two sides. Two somethings there many sides There are more than two sides to some things, but other things. They're not two sides. I'm with you. I don't debate flat Earth's I don't debate whether or not it is appropriate or there's a basis to assume that people will act differently or be differently because they are a different ethnicity. Or religion. I don't have those conversations like if you want to debate whether or not someone's more likely to be criminal because they are a certain race or practices, certain religion, then you can have that conversation with somebody else. What I would say that that person is Reed a little more and you'll understand that good and evil have come in every package. They've been They practiced every faith. They've been in all genders. I'll leave it at that. So I'm not going to indulge this thing about whether or not one group of people or this group of people is worse than the other. I will have a conversation about how we can all protect ourselves from other people's capriciousness and other people's arbitrary behavior. I'll have that conversation. But I'm not going to indulge this thing about Oh, you know, art is somebody more likely to be a criminal. Because they're African American. Is somebody more likely to be a bad immigrant? Because they're coming from south of the border, as opposed to from Scandinavia. I'm not having those conversations. I think that we've given a lot of weight. Two positions that in my view, really shouldn't have any. I'm out of time, but I'm quite sure someone is listening. Who would like to take you up on that offer to have a spirited.

"Confederacy and that they were fundamental in raising funds in order to raise statues to celebrate the confederacy and they were major proponents of the so called lost because they tried to establish some sort of noble purpose to the establishment of the confederacy for their separation for their treasonous actions for the US civil war and and therefore their heroes of that effort were supposed to be worthy of being lauded one of the things I read about these daughters of the confederacy is not just that they were there in order to erect statues to the confederacy there was one statute that they attempted to have commissioned and it was called a mammy statue and the statue the purpose of the statute was to try to show the world the north I guess and and the rest of the people who were not advocates of slavery that there was such a lovely and loving relationship between the slave owners and the slaves and that was the point of having a mammy statue they collected funds for it luckily they were not successful they were not allowed to erect a said statue that's one that probably would have been torn down long long ago this is Juneteenth and we are celebrating the day the day of freedom we're celebrating the day of freedom for slaves in America the Emancipation Proclamation actually took effect two and a half years before June nineteenth of eighteen sixty five but there were people with in the confederacy there were people in slave holding states the people who were enslaved who were not told that Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation that day were freed they didn't know it because the slave holders did not want them to now so there was this this group of military people from the United States of America who rode in there were eighteen hundred soldiers who rode into Galveston Texas and made the announcement and the people were jubilant the people of course I'm talking about were those who were enslaved it took a year before they actually began celebrating in Galveston and then it quickly spread to other areas where they celebrated this work it became a day of celebration of freedom you know Ken says this is a day we should all celebrate and he says in a in a way because this is the day that marked the move to really make those words of the declaration of independence real for everyone in the country you know those those words that spoke of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness it would mean for everyone of course it was quashed in a large degree reconstruction was a failure in part because of the president who followed Lincoln who was a slaveholder himself who did not want to see any move for any quality or freedom of these people and so he stood in the way and there were lots of other things it's a very complicated history but in essence you know F. following the failure of reconstruction we did have Jim crow we have never achieved racial equality in this country the Kerner commission it's been the sixties outlined what some of the major problems were about the nation they said which was separate and unequal some of the major problems continue to exist today it feels different this time there been a lot of movements there've been a lot of people making the cry there've been a lot of people who have advocated for change it feels different this time it feels like things really are going to change and I'm gonna tell you that it's not just we're not just talking now about a police interactions with of people of color we're not just talking about that but that is a part of it if I may ask you to indulge me I'm going to share with you a column that was written by Charles blow that appeared in The New York Times a couple of days ago actually five days ago and it's headlined an insatiable rage Charles blow says in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and the massive wave of protests that have swept the country in the world New York state on Friday passed a package of policing reforms banning choke hold an opening police disciplinary records among other things after signing the bills into law governor Andrew Cuomo said at one of his corona virus news conferences you don't need to protest you won you accomplished your goal society says you're right the police needs systemic reform Cuomo statement betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of this moment yes the package of bills he signed in the steps being taken in other cities and states represent movement in the right direction on the issue of policing the people aren't only in the streets because of a single killing or a single issue people are marching as a way of screaming away of exhaling pain as an enormous group catharsis this isn't only about the pain of police brutality it's about all the pain this is about all the injustice and disrespected oppression this is about ancestry and progeny in fact with every word of solidarity with every overture by governments and companies with every new law passed a reform instituted the cry draws strength because these actions are all acknowledgment that those in pain have been right all along that all of their here to four unheard and unheeded protestations have been wrongfully ignored people are in the streets because their backs have too long borne the weight of racism or because for too long they have a vertical their eyes from it black people are

We've seen the contrast policy change without consciousness change. I call to mind Brown versus board of Education Graham right where. You had a conscious policy change that was resisted.

About how white people understand racism, and what it means for them at Magee co-chair color, change and online racial justice whereas agent, you know Heather I taught there. There were so there was so much tension and and worry in the wake of the protests when they started from people. Typically I think like white liberals were like Oh God, it's going to donald trump. Oh No, you're going to know and it is really. It's like a case study in street, protests and public opinion I myself I'm actually shocked by the data. What do what do you see happening here? I, think we see a few things happening one we I think we were primed for this moment by the corona virus by a lot of the American mythology, being laying bare one the idea that we can be relentlessly upwardly mobile and that White, folks have. Their grasp on the American dream when when the economy shut down and people realize they were to. Away from destitution at the government may not be there for them. There was a sense of vulnerability and physical vulnerability, and then as we saw the corona virus made people lead into their neighbors and show so much solidarity interdependent. What's you tap into that source of vulnerability, interdependence, humanity and an awareness of the inequality that the corona virus has exposed your your prime for something big and then George Floyd was murdered on video on top of the video that we have and videos that we don't have of so many other acts of racism reality Taylor Aubrey. Christian the bird watcher in new. York and it was like lightning striking out when you feel that that electricity building up a storm, and so that's why I think we have this incredible thing happening with public opinion, but it's also because of movements because movements are powerful, because the blackflies has been working on this day in and day out. In big street protests and small reading circles and fights online, and then calling people in and calling people out on since Trayvon, Martin was killed. Just so that people know. We were watching someone. Take a sledgehammer to a confederate monument. This this particular monument is sort of unnamed confederate soldiers, many of which have been torn down.

He's a member of the House Judiciary Committee, which held that hearing today, also the former mayor of the city of Providence Congressman what was what did you? View is the goal today's here. The goal of today's hearing Chris was to really lay out the importance of of moving forward some real reforms to improve police accountability. To, ensure that law enforcement is working for the people in this country in a fair and equal in that we eradicate misconduct and whole police officers accountable when they engage in. It was an opportunity of course to hear from Mr Floyd's brother, who gave very powerful testimony about the impact of his brother's death on himself, and his family, and really called us to action, and said you know He. His name is well-known. Your names will be well known to. If you move forward with bold action, and we heard from experts and civil rights advocates in. Folks who have study law enforcement in significant ways about what are the best ways to reform policing in this country to help eliminate police, brutality and the kinds of things that led to the death of George. Floyd, one of the items in your legislation, which I think is most interesting around which there's a little bit of sort of cross. Ideological consensus is ending qualified immunity, as it's currently been interpreted by Supreme Court. Doctrine that has been. Interpretive core to essentially make it almost impossible, assume police officer department for Conduct. Even that's wildly egregious, wrong constitutional. How important that is. Do you think that that's something that you might find traction? Tim Scott, said today. He's not interested in that, but but other Republicans seem to be. I think it is something we should find traction with. This is the centerpiece of accountability of police officers who engage in misconduct that resulted citizens being harmed in sometimes killed. They have to be held accountable on the way. The court has interpreted that doctrine that they essentially created basically immunizes police officers from being held accountable for even gross misconduct, and you can't have a system that enjoys the respect to the American people, if misconduct can occur without any count ability, and so I think that's an important part legislation as well as the banning chokehold as wealthy provision to end racial profiling as well as. As the training pieces of the registry for police officers who engaged in misconduct minutes very comprehensive, the most comprehensive approach ever considered by Congress on this issue in a generation. So this is a moment with the country expects us to act and enact meaningful reforms that will respond to the demands that the American people are making a a for real change in our country. It seems to me. There's sort of two conversations happening America one is a conversation among I. Think a majority of Americans of all races about the of spectrum of ways of attacking the problem reform verse, more radical solutions. Then there's the president and. The kind of hard core who don't really want to have the conversation. Do you see any openness among House Republicans? We know that the Senate is now working on something which is unusual for them? He's GonNa be opens among Your House Republican colleagues to engage on this issue. Well, it's interesting. Hearing. Today was really a revealing many of my republican colleagues. Acknowledged the seriousness of this issue expressed a willingness to respond in a meaningful way into work with us to move forward a response. They expressed a commitments to Mr. Floyd that they would take this. Effort seriously, and so you know I think it shows the power of the people in this country that people all across America are marching and demanding change, a young people old people people of every background and I think the my republican colleagues are feeling that this is a moment this historic opportunity to actually respond to a problem which has existed for generations in this country, the scourge of racism of despair treatment in the criminal justice system and policing is. Is a stain on the soul of our country and my Republican colleagues I. Think today at least you some language that shows they're open to it. Of course we're going to mark the bill up next week and we'll have an opportunity to sort of test. How sincere they are about really doing something about this very serious problem in our country by they vote final question for you I I've noticed in my reporting on this issue for years that. Politicians particularly Democrat politicians both african-american. Latino. Sound very different when talking about the issue when they are mayors and they are running police force. And it's very strike again. You're the mayor of providence the Providence. Police Force, I think it is fair to say has a very very. Spotty, if not ugly history back in two thousand ten, there were people who wanted to get rid of the police chief. Dean Estrin, who's in the six year a calling for him to resign the described force marred by corruption mismanagement. Do you look back on their time and have regrets? Do you think about different? Look what I know I took over the Providence Police Department. It was a department that was under a patterns and practice investigation by the Department of Justice. Crime was on the increase. The community was that war with the police and people had lost confidence in the department I brought in a new chief. We brought down the crime rate to the lowest crime rate. In forty years. We opened nine neighborhood communities substations. We went from being under investigation which I inherited. Chill fully accredited. Police Department. and. The police really became fully integrated into the community. They served on recreation boards and housing. Association boards and that we open nine neighborhoods substation. So I really saw the ability to transform department with the community community based Police Department with extraordinary results.
