As offended as people might get, we should keep these monuments and statues up as a way to remember our history, as well learn from it.

Why should they be taken down? What's the issue?

It's a piece of your history and it gives the idea that despite everything you haven't got over it yet. The South would state they had an ideal appropriate to pull back from the Union and the North were the aggressors. The North as we have found in the appropriate response beneath think the South tricksters.

Why? They are markers of history. They remind people of the heroic deeds of heroes.

I think they should be preserved. History is very important and people should be reminded of that.

I don't think so. They are a huge part of history and their works should be remembered.

People don't really pay attention to the statues and monuments. They just use it as a landmark for directions.

We shouldn't forget our history. If not for these brave heroes, we wouldn't enjoy what we do now.

I don't really care much for these statues. I use them as landmarks. I don't even know who most of them are and what they did.

They should stay up and let the younger generation know who and what they did. They wouldn't have a monument for nothing.

Some of the monuments and statues need to be taken down. They've been vandalized and are in pretty bad shape. People wouldn't even notice if they've been taken down.

They are historical figures and we should respect what they stand for. Taking them down would be like disregarding what they did.

They're part of our past and we shouldn't forget that. Removing these statues would be like erasing them from history.

I don't see why they should be taken down. People are so used to seeing them it would feel weird not seeing them there.

They should be preserved. They're a huge part of the city or a country and they should be recognized.

They're already there so why take them down? It would be a waste of resources. Leave them be.

Don't they have better things to do than take down statues and monuments? They don't need to be removed. They're reminders of heroic people.

No. Monuments and statues are reminders of the great people who made things happen for us. They should stay.

History is very important. The statues and monuments should be there as a recognition.
