"Why Confederate Monuments are coming down" PBS NewsHour 5/19/2017
IMHO: Because the South LOST!
Also, "political correctness" has become a cuss phrase of late, because the people who have this view don't understand that it only means; 'to show respect or to be polite.'
SUMMARY: New Orleans is the latest city to start taking down historical but controversial monuments that many say celebrate slavery and the Confederacy. Angry opponents see the move as suppressing or rewriting history in the service of political correctness. William Brangham talks to Walter Isaacson of the Aspen Institute and Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative.
