TO THE EDITOR:
I just want to say that if we are going to remove Silent Sam or destroy him because it is racist and therefore should not be on a state schools campus, if that is the case, then all Civil War memorials should be removed from all public places including Philadelphia, Maryland and any other Northern states because after all they are all reminders of racism, no matter how many lives were lost fighting that war and all who had fought and died in vain and the civilian lives of the Southern women that were raped by the Union soldiers that pillaged, stole and burned anything that they could not steal.
We should also rewrite history to say that the Civil War did not happen just like some folks don’t believe that the Holocaust never took place and Adolf Hitler did not exist.
We should just bury our heads in the sand and ignore all of that part of history. I guess that is the politically correct thing to do so everybody will feel better.
