There is no middle ground that includes a Confederate soldier and/or a Confederate flag. Either or both represent the history of slavery, the darkest period of our history. For those of you who think this proposal of a unity statue is a middle ground, how do you think our citizens whose ancestors were slaves, feel about seeing a confederate soldier with his flag, in a place of honor? There isn’t always a middle ground. The right choice is not always the popular choice.
This should not be that hard: do we want a symbol of bigotry on our courthouse grounds?
