We need to be reminded - even though the PC destroyers would have us not.

You can not use the argument that this symbol of racism is educational as your reason to leave it up if you're unwilling to educate people about it, right there on the spot. Provide a plaque or remove the racist statue.

If American history is being taught in our schools, then everyone should know the good and bad sides of Thomas Jefferson. I don't think we need to have a sign explaining that.

If people want to know the history of Thomas Jefferson then they need to research it and come to their own conclusions. Interpretive signs can be, and most likely will be, used to push one towards one conclusion over the other, depending on what message about the statute they want conveyed.

People just need to get over themselves and realize history is history, things were different back then. It's no ones fault that's still alive. United States is more accepting than any other country on the planet.

True, history can not be changed, but he was not a criminal, because at that time it was not illegal.

I didn't realize you were referring to Floyd, you are correct.

The real question is - what is your opinion of graduates of UM? Where I live, it's not good at all. No one around here has any respect for UM grads, and rightfully so.

If people want to know more, do the research.

If we're going to start providing context about the lives of men honored by statues, I suggest starting with George Floyd.

He was one of the Fathers of our Nation. Things were different then, and times have changed. People need to get over themselves.

If your mask fogs up your glasses, or if you can smell odors through it, then it doesn't work. It should have never existed in the first place.

The pandemic is coming to and end. Also it is illegal to mandate anyone to wear a mask or get a vaccine for that matter, we are not under a dictatorship nor are we in a communist country. Wearing a mask or getting a shot is each person's personal choice and right.

Even though humans have survived the evolution process for many thousands of years without masks or vaccines, we must NEVER end the mask mandate. As long as the human race inhabits Earth we must all wear masks and get weekly booster shots. Everyone do your part. Surrender control over your life.

I admire the people I see alone in a car with their masks on. Without them we would all be goners.

Mask mandates need to stay in place until we have a vaccine for all age groups and everyone who chooses protection actually has it. Then let the spreaders unmask.

Last time we ended the mask mandate too soon and cases went up....give it a little longer.
