Talk of removing Confederate monuments starts a war of words in Dallas. July 21, 2017. LEAVE HISTORY ALONE, IT'S NOT RACISM, BUT REFLECTS THE JOURNEY OF MAN. There IS an Agenda at play here, no monument, no American history taught = people without a nation, nothing to stand for and then easily removed or controlled. I SAY LEAVE OUR HISTORY ALONE, it reflects who we WERE and how far we have come as a nation.
