The University of North Carolina has a confederate monument on campus known colloquially as “Silent Sam.”
This monument is, not surprisingly, controversial, with a number of calls for its removal.
There’s also a short and very thoughtful video regarding the monument and how it’s perceived:
I tend to agree that it shouldn’t be removed and that it should be reinterpreted for each generation of students.
What do you think? What does it represent to you? Should it be removed?
