"Should We Take Down Rebel Statues," by Molly, takes a hit at the controversial southern statues. It depicts the debate on the removal, or keeping of Confederate statues such as Robert E. Lee. But unlike most other approaches to a debate, she is able to present a solution to it.


I also agree with the fact that we should keep the Confederate statues up, but I was never able to come up with a  solution to make both parties happy. We cannot just rewrite history, nor can we hide it. The statues symbolize the development of the United States of America and we shouldn't judge past events from today's standards. For a solution, Molly presents, "... we should keep most of the statues up while putting the most iffensive in museums so they can be viewed, but in a historical context." This would very well help settle the debates on both sides.
