AMERICAN MONUMENTS AND THE RESIDUE OF HISTORY AUGUST 27, 2017 By John Levi Barnard

… I am not advocating the destruction of the Lincoln Memorial, nor do I mean to imply an equivalence between Lincoln and Lee (or even Lee and Jefferson). But I am suggesting that, in the time of Donald Trump — who literally made his fortune building monuments to himself — we might reconsider the nation’s larger commitment to the monumental celebration of “great” white men altogether.

I am not advocating the destruction of the Lincoln Memorial, I’m just sayin’ … that Lincoln statue, you know, looks awfully white. Know what I’m sayin”?
