Blood spilled by this monument. It recalls a history of hatred and violence.
The Robert E. Lee Monument, is a historic statue dedicated to Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Has been a symbol of racism in the United States, located in the southeastern region of the United States. Traditional groups of white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan. were present On 12th August 2017, ready to revive a ghost believed to have been nearly dead for years, but reborn with more freedom: Racial Discrimination (Against individuals on the basis of their race.)
But later that day, as rally goes began a march and counter protests continue, a reported Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd of counter protesters, killing one and injuring 19. The woman identified as Heather Heyer was hit by a car that Alex Fields Jr. of 20 years drove against the crowd, where Heather was.
The monument is not just a representation of racism, but is also becoming (At least where I am, Richmond, VA) in a tourist and entertainment space attended by large numbers of people and families in order to "memorable moments" and even photos of the Monument itself.
This is ironic since it is perpetuating in this way the indolence of the local people, before a symbol of blood that again spills in North America's struggle with racial morality.
