'Slam Dunk'! Charles Barkley Brings 'Voice Of Reason' To Monument Debate (Brace For Backlash)
Basically, Barkley says that there are better things to worry about. Some of those things include: 1) Getting a good education, 2) Stop killing each other, 3) Develop economic opportunities. In other words, Barkley says, don't waste time on things that are insignificant, such as statues.

Are we in danger of erasing history across the country?
I'm against removing historic statues. I think the comparison to book burning is valid.

Confederate monuments that still exist in the US
It almost seems like the only reason CNN posted this video is to remind the public that there are more monuments to remove. That way they will be able to guarantee more protests, counter-protests, and any violence that goes with them. This political correctness on steroids has gone way too far. People in support of keeping these monuments need to stand their ground and maybe even do something to gain a little ground in this battle against political correctness on steroids!

Why monuments matter
We don't shut down mosques when Muslims commit crimes, so why take down Confederate memorials after the recent altercations in the southeast?

Warning of bloodshed with new map of Confederate monuments
The social justice whiners are at it again. They expect everyone else to treat them with tolerance, but they refuse to treat anyone else with tolerance.

High School Mascot Controversy In Anaheim
Mascot trouble? Probably Trona is safe. Tornadoes probably don't offend anyone, but you never know.
