Just Get Over It!

For years I’ve heard that Blacks should just get over slavery. It was a long time ago. Move on.

Yet, some of the same people that tell Blacks to just get over it, idolize statues and monuments from the Civil War. They fly the flag of the side that lost. The side that fought against the United States. They claim to be concerned that their history is being erased while, at the same time, telling Blacks to forget their history. They are more worried about a stone monument being torn down then they are about a Black man or woman being torn apart and killed.

If they cannot get over the fact that the Confederates lost in their war against the United States. If they want to keep reminders up about the Civil War then why should others just get over slavery?
