The news is apocalyptically awful, of course. But I'm a Southerner, and I never expected that I would live to see those statues come down. It was something I didn't even dare to hope for.

I don't want to lose sight of how amazing that is.

Yes. That's -- something I don't know how to even discuss with people who don't have the shared background. But it IS amazing and I am finding it really important to hold on those victories right now, given how apocalyptically awful the news is.

Yes, living in KY, I feel the same way. The news is toxic right now,but I'm heartened by the general push back to the racist leader's comments.

As to the statutes celebrating the "War of Northern Aggression" as it's often referred to in the South, the sooner they're gone, the better I say. All the symbols of hate need to go the way of the dinosaurs. It's never been about heritage but it's always been about hate and "white pride".
